    This is the largest Gay Bar I have been to. Hurricane Summers is a great Drag Queen... Always love it when she performs Tina Turner.

    The cover charge is ONLY $10 when there is a guest DJ such as DJ Escape, or a special event like The Kentucky Derby Night or Thunder Over Louisville! Come check it out! You wont be disappointed!

    Very huge gay bar, most entertaining on the weekends. Doesn't matter if you're gay or straight, it's still a show.

    Crazy! This is where Lady Gaga came and did an after concert show. The drag nights are extremely fun.

    Just for the record, anyone who says something about George and Ed, the owners of The Connection, that they are greedy and/or dont care about the gay community doesnt know them!

    It's like a circle that you have to show your ID again and again each time you come around... They said voted Best Gay Bar? Couldn't find a bartender so went to that 'other bar' inside to get a drink.
