This jazz bar is a hidden gem. The place is a popular spot for Jazz lovers of Sapporo, and as such, most of the people you'll see there are local frequent visitors. The bar has some professional shows and "amateur" jazz sessions (most of which are really great musicians) on a daily basis. There is a ¥1,000 cover charge plus a "live charge" that is on average ¥2,000. Performances usually start around 20:30. Drinks are about ¥700. The place is not exactly easy to find because it is on the 4th floor of a building with many tenant shops. It might be a bit intimidating to walk in but everyone is quite friendly. This is definitely worth the go if you are in a Jazz mood in Sapporo.
Located about a 5-minute walk from the Susukino Station.
Famous Door is a dining bar serving Cajun and Creole-inspired cuisine made from local seafood and produces Hokkaido is famous for. If you feel more like drinking than dining, you might be interested to know that they have various affordable all-you-can-drink options. The atmosphere is very New Orleans-like in the decor and because of the jazz music that is played. Occasionally there are some live performances as well!
