      Not to be missed, Atlanta experience.
      Don't waste your time or money on the food here, mediocre at best. used to be great....but new owners...everything is frozen fare now. Burgers are dry and nasty. Good fries though. My partner in dining had the chicken strips and they ever screwed those up. Great mix of all ages. Fun Drag... The Easter Sunday Drag Races are a long time Atlanta tradition. Try it you'll like it!

      VERY Down To Earth!
      A lesbian friend, my partner and I attended this bar and had a blast! The performers were great. They were also interactive with their "dance contest" in which my partner participated they had that night. Patrons were very friendly and lots of very attractive guys there! Drinks were delicious!

      This place was great.
      The crowd was friendly, and I saw a few really hot guys there. The crowd was very mixed and even some cute "straight" guys there. Really clean and professional staff. My only complaint is that there was hardly anyone dancing on the tiny dance floor they have. This place is not a dance club it's more of a mingle/get-together type place. Oh, and the hostess was a bitch, but that's her job. I'm sure it was only for the humor, like at every gay bar.

      Good mix of people; go early and have dinner there - surprisingly good.

      Wow this is sad
      Posted by some one else and I feel the same way And i second this statment you wonder why bissness has fallen off this statment not only applies to the owners but allso to MJ and to a lot of the staff and aso the so called head chef who screws all the food up and don't know his head from a hole in the ground and thinks he is better then every one. I do not know why still come to your establishment as the food is constantly bad the service is poor and the show is the same tired thing time in time out This is a message to the owner. You have taken any attempt to have fun when I visit your bar and have turned it into a pathetic GENERIC EXPERIENCE. You are so burdened with your own bullshit that it radiates like nuclear waste on a trailer park. Your attempt at running this business as a social place, for a friday night has a stink of serious negative energy when you walk in! Your turnover is like a McDonald's franchise around a major university. I dont understand why you have this need to stay in business, you do absolutely nothing for the community, and you make that VERY CLEAR! YOU ARE ONLY OUT FOR YOURSELF, AND YOU ARE A NASTY UNHAPPY PERSON! The gay community, MY COMMUNITY, IS OWED A BETTER EXPERIENCE. We aren't a caste of damaged goods with low standards. THAT'S YOUR PERSONA AND ANYONE WITH HALF A BRAIN THAT KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE THINKS YOU HAVE ALOT OF GODDAMN NERVE TO TREAT US LIKE WE ARE BENEATH YOU! DO US ALL A FAVOR AND SELL THE BUSINESS! YOU ARE IRRELEVANT FAKES THAT SHOULD TAKE A LONG LOOK AT YOURSELVES AND WHAT PEOPLE REALLY SEE! IT AIN'T MUCH!

      Bf and I came here two nights in a row when we were in town. Lots of guys, great drag shows, generous pours on liquor and super friendly bar staff.

      The best part of this place was the guitar player on the patio. You can go and sit with him and sing one of your favorite songs. Kinda like live karaoke in a relaxing outdoor patio atmosphere. The crowd seemed friendly enough.

    • You will have a blast for sure
      i was there on July 15th , had a great time, nice group of guys go there, all types very friendly indeed. Great drag show for sure
