Top 06 Best Night Spots to Hang Out Close to Otaru Japan – Fun Once the Sun Sets in Hokkaido

Otaru in the Hokkaido district is home to a range of attractions and stunning locations as well as vibrant nightlife experiences that can be enjoyed after a long day of sightseeing.



Located right in the middle of the very popular Sapporo's Susukino area, a-Life is, without doubt, the most famous, most visited and also, the largest nightclub in the area. Crowded even on weekdays, the club sees an influx of customers over the weekend; in fact, one would think the whole of Hokkaido is here! This nightclub in Sapporo can be easily reached from centrally located Otaru accommodation options such as Grand Park Otaru and is even easy to access via the Otaru subway to the Sapporo Station.



This is a-Life's affiliated club, and perfect to head to if the crowds are just too much at the former. Riviera is termed as a beautiful nightclub which does not stint on providing the same excitement and entertainment as popular a-Life. Head over to the club over the weekend and you can take part in the numerous events organised there.


Café & Dining Carin

This is not just a dance hall or nightclub; instead, Café & Dining Carin is open until midnight offering one a range of delicious titbits to feast on in the middle of the night. Located centrally in the Odori area, this chic eatery offers a European ambience together with stylish bites to eat and savour, once you are done dancing the night away. The place is also open for lunch and tea and perfect for enjoying a good meal, in case you are not a night owl.



This club is very popular amongst the foreign visitors of the Sapporo area. Booty is loved for its range of 'good music' and cosy interiors, entrance to which is free. Hence, you can drop in as many times as you like, relax, listen to the music, and enjoy some good food with your favourite drink. If you are planning a fun night out with friends in Otaru or maybe even looking for a place to just chill during your club hopping adventures, then stopping by Booty is a good option.


Mayurama Zoo's Nightlife
