Visited here to celebrate my birthday! The drinks were phenomenal and staff was courteous and professional. We had a ball for it to be our first drag show. Place is small so get there early for a seat even better make a reservation.

Really strong drinks, and a cheap cover makes for a fun night out on the town. Mixed crowd of people, fast and friendly bartenders. Played mostly techno music on the night I went, didn't mind it. Will def go back
