More a café than a bar, this laid-back spot on the hip edge of the North Slope is a friendly lesbian hang that's genuinely welcoming to breeders. Brightly lit with big windows that face the street, Rising's easy-going attitude is evident before you even enter. And with wine, sangria and mimosas flowing, a small outdoor seating area out back, and Twizzlers on the bar, Rising Café make sure that girls who just wanna have fun get to do exactly that. They've also recently started serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
