Door 19 is one of the few cases I know of where a lesbian bar replaced a lesbian bar at the same location. This was formerly the address for Connections, which we have reported on before.

Here's the birth announcement for Door 19 on Facebook:

Door 19 comes to you completely remodeled with new owners and lots of fun surprises!

Stashes and Lashes is a new drag entertainment group that will bring versatile, exciting and quality entertainment from the best of the best in Nebraska. Join us as Stashes and Lashes rocks out during the GRAND OPENING of Door 19!

Andrew Collins mentions it in his round-up for Omaha's Heartland Gay Pride:

The women's bar Door 19 (1901 Leavenworth St., 402-452-0895) is a top spot with Omaha's lesbian community.

And here's how GayCities described Door 19:

A place for women to hang out
Happy Hour 4pm - 8pm $1 off wells and $1.50 Domestic Draws Wednesdays - $1.75 Busch Light cans Thursdays - $1 draws * Fridays - $5 unlimited tap* 6pm to 10pm Saturdays - $3 Bombs

GayCities also reports that it is now closed, though no date is given.


  1. The same thing happened on Parliament St. in Toronto with the Rose becoming (if memory serves) Pope Joan, then easily three ostensibly “mixed” bar–restaurant–standup-comedy combinations.
