    No matter what kicks off the party at this long-standing gay bar—karaoke, bingo or country dance lessons—the night always ends with a DJ-fueled, afterhours dance party. Read more

    Friday and Monday night are good to learn either line dance or two-stepping. Saturday is also a good country dance night. Tell them you know a Man of Charlies and see what they say.

    Get there a little before 2:00 and watch it transform from a country western bar to a circuit-boy dance club

    Sunday night karaoke with Dustin and, during their season, the boys of CGMC! $10 pitchers and $5 Lite pitchers make the night complete. Always a great time!

    SUN Karaoke - $10 Absolut Pitchers - $5 Draft, TUE Karaoke - $10 You-Call-It Pitchers (even Long Islands) - $5 Draft *** Does it get even better than that? I don't THINK so!

    This place is amazing. The negative comments are probably written by people who were extremely drunk. Their credibility is in question, that's all I'm saying.

    If you're here for country dancing (not the drunken after hours travesty) make sure to grab a two-step with Michael B (the dancer, not the DJ)

    You're probably too drunk at this point to care about the rude staff that treat patrons like cattle, the bartenders who care less about pouring decent drinks, nor the 20-minute potty lines. So enjoy!
