      WORST BAR EVER
      I have been in the bar industry since 2001 and I wil say this is the worst bar i have ever stepped foot in. The place is dated, dirty, old, cramped, overly loud for the space, show sucked and they force customers out of their seats just because regular comes in. In all the years i have been a bartender and bar manager I have never asked someone to move for a regular customer that is just asinine and i would reprimand any bartender for doing so if I were the manager. The bartenders with the exception of telling me I had to move seats because a regular came in, were good the drinks were ok everything served in a tall glass no rocks glasses to be found, and plastic to boot. There were only two count them two queens that bothered to show up for the show tonight, although there were about three in the audience out of drag but intoduced by the show director anyway. The prices were the only redeeming quality of the bar with the exception of the price for my jager I've never paid $8.25 for a shot of jager in my life till tonight and it wasn't even cold. The well drinks were $3.75 as were domestics(can only no bottles at this bar), which considering the condition of the place is right on par with where they need to be. The decor looked like it had been there since the bar opened 44 years ago. The all black backdrop is just depressing but a common theme among gay bars. There were a number of young people there which I was surpirsed to see, but definiately dominated by an older queeny crowd. The pool tables were ratty at best. The music entirely too loud for the venue as the bar is maybe 35-40 feet across, The bathrooms were filthy, I just held it till I got back to my room. I will never be back to this establishment.

      Friendly neighborhood bar with a nice patio & pool
      This place has a lot of charm. Very friendly staff and patrons. I didn't get to see their drag show so I can't comment, but one of the performers was in the bar and she was very hot.
