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.

Nice staff. Wait at door is not long. Wednesday to Friday club continuously gets better. Not a posh place but very comfortable to go and chill with friends. Will definitely go back

my friend was banned from this club for being an "annoying jew" or at least those are the words of the lady manning the door. Also they watch you like a hawk all night and the staff have major attitude. To be avoided!
