If you are looking for a standard gay bar in Ottawa with the drag queens, the catch all crowd and the slightly campy/trashy but fun feel, this is it. In fact, sadly I think it’s Ottawa’s only remaining gay bar left open - strange for...More

Was a Thursday night. Fun top 40 and upbeat music. Pretty much could have danced all night long. Definitely good if you're in a party mood. As with most club/bars, don't expect to be able to have a conversation with anyone over the music.

The Lookout! is a great community space for lesbians++ in Ottawa. Whether you're queer or questioning, this is the place where you can make great friends, and have a good time. There are indeed drag king shows, and lots of young-ish queer women (baby-dykes mostly)....More
