Interesting...

Popped in on return to our accommodation for a burger. The food and service were great and it had a raucous atmosphere that was building to the Friday night cabaret. It is very obvious were you get inside what the selling point is but it was also full of mixed parties all having fun.

Beefcakes literally has something for everyone. If you're looking for a drink or fine food with entertainment this is the place to visit.

A couple of friends and I went here for a girls' night out and it was just one of the most exciting evenings. The waiters just have so much enthusiasm and sassiness that if you're having a bad day then you'll immediately light up once you get here. Also the waiters are all shirtless so that's fun too :) After... More

Loud with screaming hen parties, half naked, not so bright good looking men. The burgers are not the best in town and menu is limited.

Decided last minute to come here instead of Cafe Manhattan. Arrived 2 minutes before the drag show started. And my - what a great time we had. Had a rocking good time! One queen could really sing - she was belting it out. Another could dance - really rocking it. Of course the finale was when the waiters took their... More

Really good drug... More
