Lesbian bar Bellissima closes amidst sale difficulties

A huge ‘THANK YOU’ to all of our 1713 fans, patrons and loyal customers for your support! I’d also like to thank our potential buyers/partners, employees, dj’s, performers, promoters, organizations and the media!! You have helped create memorable events and awesome memories for all to cherish!

I am looking forward to opportunities in an exciting NEW YEAR and wish everyone a safe, healthy, prosperous 2012 as well!


The bar went on the market months ago for $79,000.

This news comes on the heels of a new era for the city’s oldest lesbian bar, My Sister’s Room located in East Atlanta, which recently was sold and just completed some renovations and reopened on Jan. 7 and is set to open Jan. 14 as a sports bar while also keeping its popular nightlife lineup.
