Discrimination – Very disappointed to be told by a rather rude and ignorant, on-a-power-trip, young punk doorman to be told that they don't accept international I.D's. I am a 27yr old female tourist visiting from the United kingdom and was denied entry. This discrimination ruined my night out in Orlando and has put me off coming back here again. Would not recommend this place to my friends. The central Florida area vastly survives on tourists and I feel we should be welcomed with a little more hospitality.
A well-stocked jukebox and surrealistic decor add multiple dimensions to this rawk and roll bar. – In Short
The decor resembles a trailer park bar--the ceiling pulsates with white Christmas lights; the tabletops are made from doors; Elvis wood paneling lines the bathrooms; and the centerpiece is a sliced-off side of an RV. The strong drinks at the full bar bring in a who's-who of the local music scene. A well-stocked jukebox provides the proper soundtrack for the trailer park vibe. Video game machines add yet another flavor to the ripe aroma.
Rawks – Bar-bq-bar is a great place to hang out with the local art/punk/indie/goth scene and drink some PBR and you MUST use the photo booth and get a freaki.
Bar-Bq-Bar – This is a cute little bar if you dont mind it being a bit crowded and overly trendy. Some of the crowd are snobbish but the bartenders are great people and it is over all a fun place to go.
Where is Nancy Sinatra? – I have spent many a night paying tribute to the "KING" on the bathroom wall, and listening to Johnny Cash on the Jukebox. I have swirled in that trailer trash atmosphere and enjoyed every minute. However, I do have one serious concern. No longer can I hear "These Boots are Made for Walken" on the Jukebox. Some one has removed the single best song. What is a girl to do? Please bring back Nancy!
