    Waste of Time
    I went here a couple of times in the past when they were on Indian School. It wasn't that great then, worse now. The bartender was rude, and rolled his eyes when I asked for a refill, and for a Friday night it was beyond dead. No one talked to each other, probably because the music was too loud, and I had to park on the far side of CVS to get a place to park. The only nice thing I can say was a couple of the dancers were hot. I won't go back though. Too much wrong with it.

    Mostly tired old angry bottoms running around in dirty underwear. Lon is the only thing that makes it almost worth the experience. Yet the place is a an ok experience just for the laughs....

    Major disappointment
    You call this a gay leather bar? The last time I was there, the place was overrun with women. Hardly a man in sight.
