Located in a renovated Victorian house, this two-in-one club boasts a large outdoor patio. Crews is a gay bar for men, and it is known for its pubby atmosphere and its drag shows, which start at 11pm on Wednesday through Sunday. The adjoining Tango bar draws a lesbian crowd. It hosts Tuesday- and Thursday-night karaoke; on Friday and Saturday nights, the women head for the dance floor.

Never going again. Security kills the fun vibe. I was frisked without being informed or asked, we were threatened while standing in line by guy doing ID at the door, and while inside various security guards came across as overbearing, pushy, and power hungry. Seems like a strange match - fun, gay bar meets border patrol/customs airport security. Chill out... More

AMAZING!!!!! What a super fun unique place. We wanted something out of the ordinary for my Sister In Law to be's bachelorette and let me tell you it was Extraordinary. The cover was cheap, the staff was super friendly and the Performers were superb. Drinks were reasonable and it had a little something for everyone. Loved the different dance floors... More

My gal pals and I had a great evening here. We enjoyed the shows and choices of music on the dance floors. Not overly crowded but not dead either. We'll be back!

I was there some time after midnight on a Saturday. There was a queue, but it was moving pretty fast. When it was my turn to go in, the security guy said "I'll pat you down, ok?" I agreed. I showed him my passport. He looked at it and said "Sorry, I can't let you in, you're too intoxicated." I... More

Crews & Tangos is a great place to start your night off with some casula drinking and watching the Drag shows, however it gets full really quick past 11 so its time to move on to a nightclub with more room to dance. The Drag queens are wonderful including Ivory Towers, Heroine Marks, and Daytona B!tch.
