    I went on a Saturday night expecting a packed dancefloor but it was very much dead! But the bartender is very hot.

    Tuesdays with classic club music us GREAT. Some nights downstairs gets too packed but overall it a cool place to hangout with friends. "Most" staff is friendly!

    Your guess as good as mine as to what the decor of this place is, but if you like fun... Sunday disco nite. Drag queen spins (and dances) & guys that know the steps. $5 long Islands, free popcorn.

    If you're looking for a piano bar with a high cover, the upstairs is for you, but if you're looking for a typical club night, head downstairs for hot dancers and a good vibe.

    Free. In the Disco. The Bassment Party by Jools Palmer and Mandy Graves attracts DJ royalty and night life creatures.

    If you're gonna complain about this place, be specific! "Scary" means nothing!

    This place is a little bit calmer, more of a drag queen and piano lounge than an upbeat club. The people and staff are super friendly!

    Very sexy bartenders. A great place to unwind after work. Weekends are a little raucous. Awesome upstairs piano bar. Downstairs dancing.

    A relaxed pub featuring a dance floor downstairs, piano bar entertainers upstairs and the best bartenders slinging cheap happy hour drinks and frozen margaritas.

    The owner is a money-hungry a-hole. Horrible experience during Pride 2011. I took my 11 friends and left. Never again.

    Free hot canapés at 7 pm. Jalapeño poppers are good. Stay away from the crusty old dips, though.
