Although Club Metro is not a gay venue, once a month they hold the “Diamonds are Forever” drag queen night which is pretty much an unofficial gay night. The crowd is mixed which is great as the other gay bars in Kyoto tend to be men only. The drag queens are good fun and usually interact with the crowd after the show. The event starts at 10:00 pm, and entry is 2000 yen which includes one free drink ticket or two drink tickets for students and foreigners! Additional drinks are reasonably priced after you’ve used those, with beer at around 500 yen.
