    Amazing place to enjoy a dancing night. Good music, good dance floor, there're couches on the side if you just want to grab a drink sit down talk and coat hanger during winter for a $2 fee.

    It's a great place to 'get your gay on'. Gorgeous decor, fabulous shows including a weekly Sherry Vine show, and great music with fab DJs like Scotty Rox. Amazing atmosphere. - Pandora Boxx

    Drinks are pricey, but there's no cover - surprising considering the awesome events here. You'll have to push your way to the bar on weekend nights, but the bartenders will get to you quickly.

    This bar boats a nightly 2 for 1 deal from 4 - 9 p.m. (come toward the end of the promotion or risk stumbling out early), a stage that hosts drag singers, a pool table, & comfy couches. Read more

    Definitely a place to check out. Head to the couches near the stage for a good seat because there is ALWAYS something going on here. But be sure to bring cash! It's a cash only bar for now.

    Bar is cash only at times and the place can get packed quickly. You can usually get a couch if you arrive before 9 and just hang out with friends and scope out the guys.

    Good place with cool lighting. But cheesy music and no credit card... Personally think cash only sucks but happy hour (6 bucks for 2 beers) during happy hour makes up for its drawbacks

    Check your coat and get nachos at therapy across the street. Then walk across to industry for some cash bar and cruising. Less crowded during the week. Weekends its a meat locker.

    Barracuda and Boxers had a baby and named it Industry. A little too Bourbon Street rowdy at the moment, but it could possibly improve once its "just opened" hype simmers down. Vast interior.

    The surly bouncer was least then welcoming, not a bad little venue though. The stage and live entertainment is worth checking out, has sofas lined up on one side too.
