With respect, the show starts at 9pm and goes for 2 hours with an entry at $15 per person. If you paid a reduced rate to enter then the show had been going on for a bit and the door person was working with you....More

I would have to say probably the worst night of our trip. The show was awesome and the queens were great, but the staff could use some help. We refused an advance by the waiter and everything from then on went down hill. The cops...More

We are sorry you were removed from the club. As with so many things there are always 2 sides to the story. Ours is that we are sober when we work. Enjoy the rest of your travels.

There are people who may never see a drag show for a variety of reasons or simply because they don't approve of bawdiness. I can't help those who judge without knowing what they are judging. You don't like the idea of men dressed like women?...More
