      decent stop
      You could tell they've had trouble, extra bouncers and strict on dress code, but nice bartenders and a good crowd, I would go again. My straight sister was treated well and the music was good.

      worst bar in AZ
      As a gay couple from sf, when we moved here we expected a little friction from az people--but not in a gay bar. We have never been harassed at any straight bar here like we were harassed at this place. We brought a lesbian friend from la here and were so embarrassed.

      New Changes
      Z Girl has really strived to make the club a nicer place. The club has been given a really nice makeover. The back pool room/game room has become a stylish quiet area with a huge wide-screen TV, and comfy leather couches. The yellowed drop ceilings are all gone, it doesn't smell like ciggerettes anymore because of it. It's a smoke-free enviorment now, and that really works to the club's advantage.( It use to be very smokey) The dance lighting and speakers have all been given an upgrade. Best nights to dance are Thursdays and Fridays, with a mix of Hip Hop and Top 40 dance/house. The DJs don't mind taking requests, which is something you don't see elsewhere in gay Phoenix. The drink prices are resonable, and draft beer is downright cheap. There were a good handful of guys recently who were respectful to the ladies. A nice mixed crowd, more mixed than the early years. Fun spot!!

      Can you say.......... Ewwwww
      OMG, Nasty nasty dirtbag bar! Manly women ready to fight. Bartenders OVERWORKED, too damn small dance floor, bathroom filthy, no place to breathe, but the drinks were reasonable. And the ONLY HOT CHICS were the str8 ones coming in!!!! Go Figure. Hell NO in my book..

      Hot! Hot! Hot!
      I love this place! After I moved to Phoenix, I was about to give up on going out, and was told about this place. I had tried all the other gay bars and was less than thrilled. This is the spot to be. Great people, great drinks!
