Why do people go here?
Aug 2017 • Couples
Probably the worst drag I have ever witnessed - just awful. We thought it might have been amateur night which would have explained a lot but some of the acts were introduced as headliners. Beer was pretty bad too. And we paid to get in! In a town with so many options for fun I cannot understand why people choose this place. We won't be returning.

Great looking place. Seems as though you have to be involved with a certain click of drag queens in order to get decent service. Found it. To be irrational that we were passed by Several times before receiving somewhat rude service. Overpriced horribly mixed drinks. Drag show....eehh. OK. Looked like a few UNDERAGE teens who were obviously intoxicated were in the mix of this average drag show. Nothin that special. Food was cold when finally received. For as large as the venue is it sure wasn't very busy. On the other hand i went on a Sunday night which was "latino night?" Place was packed and seemed more like a straight bar. Outside was a large group of people complaining about service. Not sure why or what exactly happened but it did seem as if most of the staff(like always)were being pretty rude to just about everyone. Would I return? Yes,on latino night! Would definitly question the age group of some of the people any other night. Over all? Ok. Not bad. Not good either. Just ok. Would not recomend to anyone I respect!

Stinks!
The restaurant smells, restrooms outdated, food barely palatable. Bar help less than pleasant. Operated by a core of old men who are out of step. Would serve better as a parking garage.

Drinks? Why bother! Good entertainment.
The entertainment here is fun and spirited and a hoot for sure. The drinks however had so little booze in them. I watched the guy pour it and there was maybe half a shot in my cocktail. I went with a few friends and they shared the same sentiments. Whatever they are pouring is not what they advertise. I ordered a shot of absolute and that was certainly not what I got. It was awful stuff and I was terribly disappointed. My girlfriends ordered Bombay as well and were served a different product.
I was really looking forward to relaxing all evening and not drinking so much crummy fruit mixer that my stomach hurt, but no such luck here.
This is a place that I like and I would like to see stick around, but you can bet that I will not be buying drinks here until things improve.

Embers is a great place for your inner dancing queen!
I have been to the Embers numerous times and always have fun! The drag shows offer you a glimpse into the local gay community and are always entertaining!

The cover charge of weekends is really cheap compared to other bars in downtown. I love being able to go between the dance club in the back to the show up front, it mixes things up a bit!

The staff is really great as well...always willing to mix up their very strong cocktail specials!
