The oldest gay bar in Osaka. Kuro is a traditional Japanese-style bar that attracts mostly mature Japanese men, although foreigners are welcome.

Located off the main street near the entrance of Doyama gay district, on the inner righthand side of a small hallway – a bit difficult to find as the blue sign is written in Japanese.

Osaka’s most exciting and exclusive lounge & bar – Winner of Kansai Scene’s 2016 Readers Choice Award for Best ‘Night Out’ in Osaka.

This New York City-styled bar & lounge is inspired by the timeless story “The Great Gatsby” and the glitz & glamour of old school New York City Suites Hotel, invoking elegant ambiance and the decadence of the 1920’s during the American Art Deco era.

Sophisticated yet comfortable, The Suite is a welcome change on the Osaka scene. Clientele are mostly straight; however, The Suite is gay-friendly. Expect incredible specialty cocktails and live music every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.
