On a quiet street east of Susukino, one is privileged to stumble upon Provo – or, if you know the right people, to hear about it from a friend. With it’s faded couches, attic-like space札幌、すすきのの東側。閑静な通りを歩いている時に偶然出会えるかも知れない。もしくは友達からその名を聞いたことがあるかも知れない。その店の名前は「プロボ」。色褪せたカウチ、屋根裏部屋を思わせる空間、そして無造作に作り付けられたロフト。プロボは大人のための秘密のクラブハウスだ。

, and haphazard loft, Provo is a like a secret clubhouse for adults.

In fact, the regular customers are such insiders that at times it’s tough to decipher who does or doesn’t work there. Provo’s owner, Ryuta Yoshida, is well known in Sapporo for his record label Synapse, which brings many international DJ’s to the city, and for his travels throughout Europe and South America in search of new artists. His interests have combined to make Provo one of the premier spaces to see live music in Sapporo.

Each week you will find a rotating selection of DJs from all over the world – both renowned acts and up-and-coming ones discovered by Yoshida. In addition to being a hip venue, Provo is also a comfortable and organic bar that offers some surprises: the occasional jazz performance, an excellent menu, house-made ginger ale, and even a flea market, with local designers selling their wares.

Though Provo’s focus is music, my favorite time there is on a quiet weeknight evening. One can enjoy a cocktail and a spicy bowl of green curry – the chef studied cuisine in Thailand – to a soundtrack of mellow tunes. Chatting with the fashionable staff, who are always up to something interesting, it’s easy to see why you’d want to be part of the club.
