I spent a few weeks in Sapporo this summer and my accommodation was mostly based in the very lively Susukino area. Lots of funky bars and pubs and strange night life with many different adventures, but one unique somewhat touristic hangout that’s actually worth visiting is the bartending show at Flair Bar es overlooking the intersection at the heart of Susukino from the top floor. A couple of times every nights the bartenders show some remarkable acrobatic skills and bounce around bottles while making your cocktails, it’s actually a really fun show. Surprisingly, the drinks and food are very affordable, relative to Japanese prices, and the place is filled with Japanese locals celebrating birthdays or on dates, so there’s some great people watching you can do from the bar.

If you’re in Susukino and looking for a place to chill and have something a bit different, try Flair Bar es.
