Straight and love the 10! – I am a straight, happily married woman and I love the Ten Bar. The people are very nice and the drinks are GREAT! It has a very relaxed atmosphere that I always feel comfortable in. I go to the 10 with gay and straight friends and I always have a good time. A lot of straight clubs these days are nothing but a fashion show. I hate the commercialism of these places and normally leave after a short period of time. The wings at the Ten have to best in town and the drinks are affordable. You don't have to know the latest dance moves to have a good time. Its an all around great place to go to have fun and just relax.
Straight woman likes the 10!! – I like the 10! I've been a few times with friends and its never let me down. Of course it's not a Miami or California club...we are not in any of those places we are in the "bible belt" AND this is a conservative town. Most of the straight clubs are made out of department stores that didn't make it. I enjoy hanging out at the 10 because the people are friendly, the drinks are cheap, and its entertaining which usually doesn't happen at the straight clubs. They are usually over priced and the people don't dance because they are too 'cool' which is usually a pathetic impersonation of whatever trend is going on last season. Straigh clubs here usually have PISS ON THE SEATS AND NO TOILET PAPER IN THE RESTROOM... ATTENDANT EXPECTS YOU TO TIP HER?!?!. The experformer just seems bitter...apparently you thought that it was good enough to perform... right. Crabs from the toilet seat....can't happen... trust me, i'm a nurse. You walked in with those crabs. NEVER had an issue with the cops ur probably a schizo...
Great Place to meet new friends and have fun – I love going to this bar. Every time I go there i meet new friends, I can't get enough of it. The girls are the best, cool show
Indianapolis Lesbian Bar – The Ten is where all the gay girls hangout in Indianapolis. Its def. not the cleanest (the bathrooms) or anything like a Chicago or San Francisco bar based on design or size. Its a hole in the wall place that we all love and embrace. Its nickname is the "dirty dime" haha! They play hip-hop music that everyone gets down to on the small dance floor. If you aren't into hip-hop then The Ten probably isn't the place for you. Its a place where all the different social groups throughout Indianapolis come to hangout. You will see all different styles in one location. Its got the old and the young in one place having a good time. There is a pool table in the back of the bar if you are needing a rest from dancing or just want to practice your game. Thursday night is 1/2 price drink night and the bartenders are super sweet (one is the owner) but sometimes you will be waiting for a good minute for a drink. However, you will 100% be drunk when you leave, they aren't stingy with their drinks. Friday night is Drag Show night. The show usually isn't done until around 12:30. The drag isn't the best place for drag in Indianapolis, however it can be very entertaining with a large group of friends. Once the drag is over everyone is more than ready to start dancing. Saturday nights is the most urban night of the week. If you love the urban style Saturday night is the night for you. The place is usually packed from wall to wall. There is a famous "Dance Contest" on Friday nights. Its fun to watch and the crowed can go wild based on the talent of the dancers...not surprising if a few dollar bills start to show up. It also isn't out of the norm for a fight to break out during some point of the night, however the bouncers are good at clearing out the problem quickly. Can be super funny to watch though! Sunday nights are Karaoke Night/Open Mic Night. Sunday nights are normally not packed at all with the regulars who love to sing and practice their drag.
ICK ICK ICK! WASTE of money & I got CRABS from a TOILET seat! – This place was so unsanitary. I was a performer, and they had NO dressing room & I got CRABS from the bathroom while changing (yes, they are hoppers). This place was so gross. People were super friendly, but the place was just so dirty & creepy!
worst club ever – club ten is the worst gay club that i have been too. the owners are two old ugly fat ladies who have no idea what they are doing. The music sucked... and no one in there was half decent looking. The lady making drinks didn't put enough alcohol in them and charged too much. the pool table (only one) looked like they got it out of the garbage and took $hits all over it. It upset me that one of the only gay clubs around that area was not even worth going to. The owners were also not friendly and treated their customers poorly. i guess if your desperite enough to want to waste your $10 on a sh*thole with cops sitting outside making fun of gaypeople then go ahead! I sure wouldn't.
