Stylish air conditioned club with great music. This is a gay/ladyboy bar which I didn't know. And I'm not gay. Ended up there for a few beers and enjoyed the music until I realized this was not "my thing" :-)

This place has been around for 20 years. I came when it first opened and it's still a great friendly safe spot to mingle. Dance. And have a bit of fun after a busy day. Highly recommend it!
