      Well, times may change but standards must remain. When in Atlanta I heard the described as the world's most gay-unfriendly gay bar. I couldn't really argue then and I certainly can't argue after the experience tonight. All I can really say is this; find some other place to go. If you want to have a good time, this is not this place to do it.

      Not too big of a fan of this bar. I've been here a couple times and noticed its like gay high school, everyone in this bar is clickish. People can be rude if they don't want to talk to you or if you don't spend money on them. Alcohol can also be a bit pricey, which is rediculous. I definitely do not recommend this bar.

      Bartenders smoke in your face!
      We realize that there are a lot of bars in the country that allows smoking, however why does a bartender think that they have a right to smoke while they are working? Putting their smokey hands in ice, handling your glass and blowing smoke in your face while they serve you. Then puts their ashtray right in front of you. There are a lot of other bars in greater Jacksonville to go to party. Happy hour crowd is a joke.
