This club does not deserve the 1 star. My worst clubbing experience ever. The type of music is so very different to that of Pretoria and Johannesburg. It was as if the DJ just played the hit parade in a sequence from the top 20...More

I just love this gay bar. It is open daily, the waiters at the bar are really an eyecandy. During the week it is not full but definitely worth a visit. The music is great and the atmosphere just fantastic.
