We decided to try out this place because it seemed like a fun local club - the novelty of it all wore off pretty quickly upon entering, smelled like a old sweat sock with super unfriendly bartenders who made you feel like they were doing you a favor just by acknowledging your existence... that is when they acknowledged you at...

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON VIP/BOTTLE SERVICE!!!! NOT WORTH IT! NOT TREATED AS VIP, NO CUSTOMER SERVICE, THEY DELIVER A BOTTLE AND YOUR MIXERS, POUR YOUR FIRST DRINK AND NOTHING FROM THERE OUT! This was my first experience of down town Minneapolis. It started off with amazing/fabulous service and great food in their happy hour area. We tipped our server... More

Absolutely terrible service! The bouncer decided that my friend "looked" intoxictaed so we were denied entry. This was our first stop and we showed zero signs of intoxication. The lady running the place was on the patio and gave an extremely condescending response when we spoke to her (again, not smelling of booze or slurring words). Completely ridiculous and I... More

This is such a crazy club, still boasting decor of the 90s (or 80s, or...) but it is SO MUCH FUN. Just go already sloshed and the whole thing is a hilarious dream!

The bar always guarantees a good time. The drag show upstairs is excellent - the ladies know how to perform! Also highly recommend going to the retro music room to listen to a great mix of music going all the way back to the 70's! Stripper poles are a great touch!

My girlfriend decided to check this place out & ended up having a super fun time. The drag show is a must see! It's a bit crowded so don't go if you're claustrophobic.

My sisters and I attended the female impersonator Drag Queen show for our first time. I recommend it as a must to put on your bucket list! I suggest eating dinner beforehand downstairs as they reserve a table for you for this show that way. Simply, call the number on their website to do this. Otherwise, you may have to... More

If you love watching drag, then Gay 90's will knock your socks off! These are some of the best drag queens I have seen in person and my partner and I were delighted to see these extremely talented ladies perform. The Gogo dancers were also quite animated. With that said...aside from the giant golden penis that greets you upon entrance... More

I went with some girlfriends and we had a blast. The drag show starts about 10:00 and is first rate! Grab a seat and get your dollar bills out! Then, go dance the night away in the chill bar or in the main entrance bar downstairs! such a blast!
