    Best gay bar on the east side. Friendly. Intimate and full of great people from the non weho crowd. Grab a drink and dance in the back room.

    AW: gay bar, dive bar, neighborhood bar, dance bar, and one of SL's most fun bars. Epic DJ nights but also a very chill place to drink cheap, strong drinks on a Sunday night.

    FYI the men's bathroom has no door. So like if you have to poo, plan ahead. Or seize the opportunity to show off your goods. You've been warned. Or whatever. Man flesh.
