Great bar with awesome people! Jeff & kolby make sure the bar is always clean & you always have a full drink! Strong drinks & well worth the money. The drag shows are always very entertaining & all the patrons are always welcoming. Overall great bar & great staff!

This bar is ridiculous ! The owner refused to remake my drink just because I was asking for a little sweetener u ordered for this, so drink it and then he refused to give water for me Im not here to serve tap water, Im here for drinks I said he didnt know how to treat well his costumers and he said I make my own rules, get out of the bar and ordered the guard to kick me out of the bar... not the first time I hear he is racist and xenophobic.. YOU SHOULD NEVER GO TO THIS BAR, THE OWNER IS TERRIBLE
The owner was very rude and there was a confusion with our IDs already being scanned and he got very defensive even though the member of our group he randomly wanted to scan again was complying and talking with the bartender we had already been talking to. The owner then said "I can't deal with this" and walked away from us in the middle of our order. Understandable if we were causing a scene or being disruptive but there was one member of our group even talking and he was just making small talk and talking about the year he was born with the bar tender because he was getting scanned again for seemingly no reason. The owner was on a weird power trip and told the bartender to tell us to leave. Which we gladly did because I have never encountered anything like that. (It should also be noted the person he randomly wanted to scan again and was being blatantly disrespectful to was black. Judging by the other reviews on this business it is safe to assume the owner to be racist)
Horrendous experience. My friend and i waited about 30 minutes for a drink. We got the bartenders attention and he said he would be right with us. We then watched as he served 9 more people, some of whom had just approached the bar. I politely tried to get his attention again, to which he lost his mind! He started screaming that he was the OWNER and that if we dont like it, we could get the f*** out! I hate to judge a place by one interaction with one person, but everyones vibe there was so sour from the Doorman to the DJ to the other bartenders. I wish I would have read the reviews before going here. The story of the owners bad behavior and utter racism are right here in front of our faces! Never going back here again, and i hope this place goes belly up.for the sake of our community.
If I could I would give 0 stars. Myself and another friend in the lgbtq+ community were visiting Charlotte for the night with a friend and came to this bar for drinks and to dance. After pulling up to the ominously dark and eerie building, we entered the empty house with no greeting. We walked upstairs to find one lone patron, and the bartender. We were greeted, IDd and served our drinks. At this point, the bartender was personable and welcoming. I cant explain how dead this bar was. We decided to finish our drinks and come back later in the night. Around 11:30 we came back to see if the place had livened up. We walk upstairs to the bar and are immediately given dirty looks by a different bartender serving drinks. We see our previous bartender from earlier in the night and he said theyre good, I already checked them. The other unwelcoming bartender then stated Im the owner and will ID you as many times as I want. Let me see your ID. He only directed his rude comments towards my friend who was the only gay, black man there. Myself and our other friend are younger, white women and were never spoken to harshly, only referred to as sweet heart and honey. My friend made a joke about being IDd and everyone laughed, except the owner who then threw his hands up and said I cant do this and walked away. The previous bartender gave us a nervous look like he knew what was coming next. The owner came back and told the bartender they need to leave to which the bartender looked at us embarrassed and said Im so sorry but you need to leave. Absolutely appalled, we left without any hesitation and were stunned at what had just occurred. Describing what happened on a Google review does not give nearly as much detail as what unfolded, but the genuine disgust and uncomfortable feeling I got from how the owner treated us, especially my friend, is comparable to kicking trash on the sidewalk. I am saddened that this is named the best gay bar in Charlotte and does not give our loving, welcoming community the accurate representation it deserves. The owner is a pompous racist who has no respect for anyone but himself and I will never step foot in this place again. Save yourself the anger and money and visit somewhere else. Youll find better drinks and a more welcoming vibe than you ever will here.
