Performers were wonderful. Lady Gaga performer was outstanding as well as the performer who did Private Dancer. Little pricy to get in but Darcelle was super nice. Good drinks.

The show made for a fun evening with friends. I thought the show was a little cheeky, but all had a great time.

What a kick! The place is small but the show is so good that you forget about it once the night gets going. Drinks are good but spendy but where aren't they? The performers are very good and the jokes will keep you laughing. Upon...More
