Enjoyed an ice cold Blue Moon beer here with cool tunes and friendly bar man! Nice outdoor seating areas and opens up into a full late night drinking place in the evening. Definitely the heart of the gay area. Keep up the good work boyz :-)

Best place to be to sing along with all the other guest. Show tunes are the best with their alcoholic slushies you have to try each one!

Great crowd and great bar. There are many different sessions in the bar to meet different people. I was there on Saturday and Sunday. Sunday was the show tune day. They play all sort off Musicals on TV. From glee to lion king to Evita. Fantastic atmosphere. The crowd will play along with the music. It's a good place to... More

We were not expecting much when we got 2 drinks with our tickets to a show here, but we were pleasantly surprised. Delicious drinks and great service. All the good looking men there, certainly doesn't hurt either! Not a lot of seating at the bar where we saw a show, but there are ledges along the walls to put down... More

The multiple bars are amazing and they have anything you want to drink including splits of good champagne. Every time we went we always had a great time talking to other patron and the... More

It's a great bar with friendly people. It's huge there and they play videos. Not too loud, so possible to hold a good conversation there as well.

So I enjoyed this club while in Boystown, everyone was so polite, got to try a few amazing slushie drinks which wasnt expected. The space was good enough to not feel too cramped in a bar, the dancefloor set up was also very appealing !! All in all good time, go with a good group or go alone !
