Would be nice to hear a different playlist for once. Very male orientated bar. So much for a being lesbian friendly bar when you have no events what so ever to do with lesbians unless they are in drag. Would be cool if you actually...More

Young crowds, cheap drinks, your regular top 40 music. Not somewhere where I could party every weekend. For the only proper gay club in the city, it's a bit underwhelming.

Stumbled into Ivy Bar looking for one-for-the-road. Ended up staying several hours. The cocktails were quick, fresh, and packed a punch, and the place seemed popular with a broad cross-section of locals. Looked like camp glitzy fun.
