    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.

    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!

    George and Ed are wonderful people and do and donate more than ANYONE I know to the gay community! I kniw and can say this because I work for them and have for years because they are such great people

    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!

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