uncutedge gave this placeWorst bar layout everJanuary 2011 revision: The bar has since been remodeled and is MUCH more inviting and pleasant to spend time in. Apparently there is new management, there are also new bartenders, the place is a million times better now. Thought I should edit my original review and be fair. May 2010: Seriously, I've been to many bars in my life, and this has to be the dumbest bar layout I ever saw. It's a cavernous space where people walking in are going to feel like all eyes are upon them, but then the bar is sequestered off to the side with railings so it's difficult to get a drink. Just terrible. It needs to shut down, remodel, and re-open. It's a shame because the heights / NW side are full of gay people and a nice bar there would be well-patronized.

MontroseMuscle gave this place... BAD customer service!Me and the boyfriend have been to this bar a good half dozen times and the bartenders and staff seem to say the same as JR's and SOBE: GO AWAY. I agree with the other reviewer, the bar is laid out in a VERY strange manner and although the sofa's are nice to sit in, there reallly is no room to get to the bar and buy a drink when the barflys nest after 10pm on a Friday night. Best to just continue to Montrose and hit our favorite bar: BRB!
watusi gave this placeBetter remember to close your tabThe only reason I'll be going back is to make sure my account gets a $30 credit! I had 2 drinks there and left without closing my tab (it happens some times). The next morning I looked at my account and saw that they had charged my card $50. That's right, $50 for just 2 drinks. I'll be going back later today to speak with the manager or the owner - and you can bet I won't go back again! I would have been fine with a $2.00 tip, but no, this greedy ass has to go for the gold - so just remember if you do risk going to this place you better watch your tab!
Caster gave this placeKeep driving to MontroseNot the best of places. Sorta same clientele as Ej's, but with more drugs.
MammyGraham gave this placeAwkward layoutOnly gay bar in the Heights. Not exactly bad, but it has a strange layout making it difficult to meet new people. If you really want to tickmark off having visited this bar, it's probably better to go with a friend.First to Review
