I loved the bar. I had a run in with Chris and he honestly was so wonderful and sweet. Sat with me and talked to me the whole time he was there. I'd definitely would return!

Small but very nice inside & they have some great drag acts. It's called the California inn not calefornia inn. Great beer garden in the summer. Drinks can be expensive & they do sell champagne. Lots of interesting people. This is a gay bar
