I see the comments about racism but I have NEVER experienced such a thing here!! Not to degrade anyones experience, buuut this place never gave that vibe!! Every time Im here I see a mixed crowd of people with EVERYONE having fun together and enjoying EVERY SHADE of person! Are you kidding!! Their are regulars of this place that are EVERY SHADE!! But they CAN be extremely busy and yea ofc you can mistake a busy bartender (one is usually the owner) for an attitude. But theyre BUSY and dont want to WASTE time!! This place is amazing!! If you want a more personal experience than Scorpios COME HERE!
Overall pleasant experience. Somewhat smallish place but cozy with plenty of seating due to intelligent use of several patios. Bartenders were friendly and inviting though a bit light handed on the drinks.
TERRIBLE! TERRIBLE! THE OWNER OF THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS RACISTS!!!! As a black male or female DO NOT!! come to this place! Youll be better off at scorpios night club. PLEASE READ OTHER REVIEWS AS THIS PLACE HAS A HISTORY OF DISRESPECT AND RACISM!! If you do end up here beware! Your night will end up targeted and humiliated. BBB will be in contact

im a flight attendant who was visiting charlotte for my layover and decided to go to this bar but honestly it was one of the worst bars ive been in. this bar is VERY racist to black queers. i went in last night and tried to get the bartender on SEVERAL occasions. when he FINALLY got to me, i tipped him very well and everything. so then came time i told him to make another drink with less malibu and more pineapple and he made it wrong the FIRST time and tried to even charge me for two drinks??? he then decided to make a whole tangent that he wasnt going to waste a drink and whatever BUT i told him from the FIRST time to make it that way. the thing is, ive noticed he was more kinder to the gay WHITE men and me being a black queer women felt very offended. youre better off at scorpios. ive read the owner is racist so whatever you all do, avoid this place, PLEASE. find staff that ARENT racist and WANTS to work. dont know his name but he had a black shirt with black hair, he also had a weird voice that was shrill and aggravating. DO NOT go to this place. Youre better at scorpios!
Racist, Racist, Racist. Beware POC. Do not visit this establishment. What was supposed to be a new years celebration turned into an ugly night by the owner. I went out with my white partner who was initially with me as we received the first round of drinks and opened a tab. When he would go to get us a new drink he received prompt service without a problem. After a fun evening, I went over to close my tab alone and while I waited at the bar for 15 mins to close said tab and be acknowledged by the same bartender that opened my tab, I was repeatedly overlooked. He kept serving other white guests at the bar, who had arrived after me, with drinks while I kept waiting. When I finally waived at him he waived me away. Which confused me, so the next time, after waiting again, I was able to get his attention, I asked him for my tab once again. Who knew this simple and quick request would cause the same bartender that has been serving you all night to start hurling insults at you? Calling me a Queen in a derogatory way, other derogatory statements, making fun of my fem body language and finally telling me hey get out you fa****, I dont need to do anything you say, Im the owner. That was exactly what I was trying to do, get my tab and leave. Throughout our back and fourth, I kept asking for my tab, but he kept the insults coming instead. His white superiority and authority as the owner was beaming through with every insult. If you are a person of color, be careful, this place is not it. So on top of paying 20 dollars each to get in, you should expect to be verbally assaulted by the owner. The one time I went solo to the bar, as a POC, I was verbally insulted. Racism and or harassment via calling someone derogatory names is not a trend we will allow to continue. 2023 will not be about allowing this behavior to be unchecked.
