Trashy – The drag show is usually pretty good, but the place is terribly nasty and in need of work. There is usually trash on the floors, and the bathrooms are filthy. On my last (and final) visit the toilets were clogged and overflowing with urine and other stuff. There was trash everywhere on the floors. Chunks of carpet are ripped out in places. The walls are leaning on the patio, which is not a very safe thing in crime-ridden Memphis.
Some of the bartenders act as if they cracked a smile or said "thank you" it would hurt them. As for the crowd, it is mostly clicky younger white gay guys with attitude and a whole lot of black nelly obnoxious queens running around in groups with cell phones. There are also a lot of straight couples. It is not really a great place to go for single gay guys looking to meet someone as most of the crowd is usually made up of couples or groups. In other words, it's not a good pick-up place. This place used to be fun and well run, but it has gone drastically down hill in recent years.
avoid bathrooms!!! – 1st there is a membership fee plus cover, 2nd membership expires every 6 mos, 3rd you still pay full price after 3 am, 4th don't use the bathrooms after 1 am, and finally one good thing if there sober the show at 12 am is pretty good but after that NO not so good.
HOT – To me this is one of the best gay clubs in Memphis, good music, drag show, and karaoke night on wednesdays. I f you like to have fun, dance and see a lot of hotties, this is the place.
