Rude staff, no respect for customers.
Feb 2020 • Couples
The shows are boring. The music is bad. The staff is rude. The drinks are expensive for Thai standards and in top the waiter always make
'' mistakes'' about your change.
Some of them If you don't tip the get extremely rude.. Nobody cares about the customers unless you spend and tip tons of money..
And even if you do it and you don't tip the day after they will show you a realy bad face..
Really very low respect for the customers..

Boring....
Jan 2020 • Couples
The male dancers all have these very bored looks on their faces, like they can’t wait for the show to end. For that matter neither could this patron wait for the show to end. After experiencing Siem reap’s nightlife for gays this was a big letdown! Total opposite of that wonderful town. Even the drag queens or excuse me lady boys did not seem particularly into their performances. When you look out on the crowd it’s relatively easy to understand why. This is such a tourist trap with probably as many if not more straight couples watching the show as gay couples. Actually it reminded me a lot of Key West. We’re at one point in time in the 80s and early 90s Key West was very bohemian with their gay nightlife it morphed into present a key west where they cater to all the street people like a freak act, very disappointing. We sat across the street a safe distance and just people watched as the shows we just found boring and uninteresting. Sad....

Great experience here
Jan 2020 • Friends
Look for gay club this place was great! The crowd was friendly and the waiters attentive to your needs. They do expect a tip each time you order so expect that. The shows were fun and the music was great! We had New Year’s Eve here and they put on a really great show outside with fireworks and all! Lots of dancers. You’ll have a fun night here

Place is fading
Oct 2019 • Couples
I’ve been coming to Phuket many years and always visit ZAG and the bar before ZAG opened.
But this year I was shocked. Most of the drag queens don’t care anymore about the act and are mostly focused on tips and having the drinks that have been ordered for them.
There’s unwanted massage at the toilet.
Gogo boys looking more bored then ever while performing their “show”...
Such a shame. I always looked forward to go there when I’d be back in Phuket. I didn’t know any place like it anymore since most gay bars have closed in Europe..
Bye ZAG..

Be careful
Sep 2019 • Couples
You definitely need your wits about you in this place, the staff constantly want your money and make gestures for money all of the time. When ordering drinks from the staff, be careful as they will add drinks on for themselves without asking, and when paying make sure to give them the exact money as they will keep your change. (I payed with a 500 note for a 180 drink, and never seen any change from this, and when I asked I got a dirty look). Also be wary in the toilets as they put a staff member in there, who will try to massage you and demand 1000bh even when told you do not want this. Avoid at all costs

Very average Drag
Sep 2019
Been to quite a few drag shows throughout Asia and this is quite average. Drinks are expensive. The Thai boys (masseuse's) can be a bit clingy.

Even tho there are a few bad reviews on trip advisor, I still walked in and tried.
The lip sync show was fantastic, and fun.
I had a great night celebrating my birthday there. (ok, I was alone until I invited a friend of my to come over)
Drinks are not that expensive as mentioned..the staffs are attentive, friendly.
I dropped my wallet on the sofa outside, one of the cutiepie kept it for me, appreciated!

Beware scam !!!
Jun 2019 • Solo
Ok, true, this used to be a great place and I still respect all the people who do an effort for the show BUT you must watch out if you pay, as you know you pay everytime you order a drink. Prices were reasonable, but my bill was twice 300 bath and so I payed with a 1000 bath bill to get change for the dancers. Twice they gave me instead of a 500 bath bill a bill of 50 bath, i complained of course, if you do they really agress you for being a bad tourist and cheap ??? Believe me I did spent a lot.. so I left and when leaving the bartender laughed at me like i got your money.... pitty becaise i like this place....
