    Extremely strong drinks upstairs. A double is more like a triple. And a fun mix of people.

    The upstairs bar has more dancing. The downstairs bar has more singing.

    It's not really a gay bar anymore during the peak times. Still can be a great spot. Can someone remind the straight people to sing?

    Kind of gay. Kind of amazing. Live piano jams and singalongs. Very friendly bar staff/entertainers. Unassuming upstairs bar with unisex bathrooms and a bowl full of condoms.

    If you want to have a good time avoid peak Fri and Sat times. Get there super late (b/t 2am and 4am) or stop by on a school night. Strong drinks, good music. Wait for Maria's Cher medley.

    They add a suggested gratuity to all bills and automatically add it to credit card charges. Be careful to not tip twice (unless you want to).

    The upstairs bar is a convenient and quieter place to catch up with an old friend over a drink (or 3). Most nights it's like you have the place to yourself!
