Best Place to Meet Single Women (Lesbian)

Kitty Cat Klub

Ladies looking to meet other ladies aren't going to be greasing up the gaudiest bars on the block, prowling in the shadows like lone wolves trying to pick off the drunkest targets. Dinkytown's Kitty Cat Klub is the antithesis to the bro bar — casual, appropriately dark, and furnished with intimate stands of couches overflowing with pillows for nesting away with friends. Live music on the weekends beckons a younger crowd off University Avenue, but the atmosphere deviates far from the roaring, high-heeled hustle of typical college hangouts. The decor is one-of-a-kind. Ghost lights trail down from the ceiling between swinging chandeliers, while tinkering toys mounted alongside hunting trophies and half a forest of alien flora creates a discordant chic vibe. Prices are more than reasonable. Happy hour presents $3 house wines and $2 Summits. There's no kitchen, but that's hardly a drawback when Kitty Cat Klub is located directly below the classic Annie's Parlour.
