Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After what seemed to take hours for my friend and I to find this place, we walked in the front door and were completely underwhelmed. It may be called Tobasco but it was no where near hot!
We got there after midnight, there would have been about 20 people in the place with only 4 on the dance floor!
At one stage they played Copocabana by Barry Manilow, then no word of a lie about 20 minutes later they played it again!!
We used this as our cue to leave!

I was at this bar for an event and I was first pleased to see a gay bar that was so different from the rest of the "Clean" looking bars in Florence.

I then I saw that I was given a drink card and a threat that I would be charged 50 euro if I lost it. Its free to enter but not to leave (extremely wrong and unconventional). Its either a 10 or 15 euro cover charge and the drinks are 8. The lady bartender is nice but cannot make a drink to save her life.

The worst part about everything was that its not a gay bar. Its a sleasy straight bar now with gay bar written outside. There is a dance floor with smoking and the men's bathrooms were disgusting (a hole in the ground). The + side is that its an interesting cavernous space. The music is descent but the beats get old fast, especially when the DJ doesn't change anything for 15 minutes. There are few people that even dance. I wouldn't go there if you were looking for a gay bar or a good time.

A tradition has come to an end... The owner, after a police raid, decided to bet on young hetero crowd.. Tabasco is no longer a gay bar, they keep up appearances to squeeze money from the odd gay tourist, but locals have moved on... Consequence of non- gay management or a sign of time...?! Anyhow, skip it and go somewhere else..

went to tabasco the day before and during new year's eve. it's somewhat hard to find because its located in a small alley within a piazza. ask the locals or take a cab (careful with the cab sometimes they try to rip people off). it's pretty small but interesting. its filled with all types of peope ranging from straight men wishing to score a three some with a lesbian couple to old men who dress like they need to be arrested by a fashion police for some intervention.over all the vibe is friendly, if you speak italian that's always a plus. music is mostly house but they do play disco once in a while. the drinks are pretty cheap compared to most establishments charging about 6 euros for a mixed drink. the bartenders are nice. you get one of those drink vouchers (given to you as you enter the club) and they mark how much you ordered. you pay as you leave the club with the entry fee included in your tab. they have a small dark room playing gay porn.

the only downfall is the bathroom. if you happen to be a clean freak this club may not be for you. considering it's one of the oldest gay clubs in italy the lavatory is, in a nice way, still running old school- back in the mideval ages.

drinks to try i'd say melon or strawberry vodka on the rocks. almost taste like kool aid. don't expect cosmos or apple martinis. try the vodkas with redbull too except for peach.
