    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.

    This nightclub features what some describe as the country's best drag show. Fun fact: After her 2011 Louisville concert at the Yum! Center, Lady Gaga performed her song "Born This Way" at the Connecti · February 1, 2012

    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!

    The Connection is a wonderful club and one of the cheapest of its kind in this country! The cover charge is only $5 and the drinks are not over priced!

    Awesome place to have a bachelorette party!!!!! Men in glass showers, 70's style disco floor, and the show was spectacular!!!!

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

    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!
