Drinks are expensiveBathroom is tatteredNever enough bartenders during events.Gogo boys are hot, but sporadic timed.DJ plays music too loudSmoking area is a joke.It used to be a smoking bar, but after COVID they changed it to non smoking. Now there is a small fenced off section out behind the bar for smoking with maybe 5 seats and a couple wine barrels for tables. The space is maybe 6'x25'. Not nearly enough space when it comes to a leather event. It's ridiculous.

I've been going to Charlie's for years. I genuinely enjoy my experience there and it has gotten so much better as the time goes on. I'm usually there either for their leather/underwear event or their Latin nights on Fridays or event on Sunday with the Charlie Angel's. During Latin nights, the DJ actually plays good Latin songs which is a huge improvement. It feels like a latin night now. They got great deals, just look at their special sign!As for service, they deliver and slay!!! The bartenders are adorable and provide amazing service. Isaac, JaviDante, Jalen, etc. Just be patient because sometimes they do get busy. The drag queens are KILLEERR! They are hilarious, amazing dancers, and great lip syncers, so bring that tip money for them because they are performers who are worth it.

The shittiest gay bar in Vegas. Just dropped a $70 bar tab on four drinks but was never offered the same happy hour pricing as other patrons. Fool me...

This is my favorite gay bar in Las Vegas. They have friendly bartenders, great drink specials, go go boys, and drag queens. I love coming out for Tuesday...

This definitely wasn't a country bar. They were playing Top 40 songs from 2000-2010. It was Bingo called by drag queens and then some sort of show starting. The times didn't match their website times for show times and game times. It was very dead. There were only about 15 people there and it actually slowed as bingo ended.The drinks were soda with an extremely tiny bit of liquor added. The bartender actually asked me what a drink I requested was and how to make it. Another bartender didn't know either. I told them to just give me a rum and coke. As I came to write this review, I see in others that I'm not the only one who has had this problem. The glass it was served in was VERY sticky on the outside, and I had to go wash my hands. That makes me question the cleanliness. It was a very poorly made drink, small portion, and $8.50. It was an overpriced joke.I really did appreciate the no smoking sign as soon as I walked in. I have lived in Vegas back and forth and I am now accustomed to no smoking inside businesses from another state. That would be my one and only reason to return over somewhere else that allows smoking indoors. That was the only good feature.This was my first visit here, on a Saturday night, to this place to check it out, and it will be my last. I would not recommend.

I really want to like this bar but I feel like it's in an identity crisis. Is it country? Nope - not anymore. Good luck finding any country western night or any country music. But oddly, the decor is all still country and the staff all wear cowboy hats and western-ish uniforms (odd, so what are you trying to be?). Every time I've ever been, there are drag shows. Fine, I love drag shows, so are you a drag bar? Oh, and the go-go's are usually pretty good. Drinks are a fair price for the valley. Good options for liquor. Marginal selections for beer. Some DJ's are amazing, some play sad sets.Biggest pros: It's non smoking. THANK YOU. That alone is enough to get me to return. The have security and wand you to get in. THANK YOU for taking security seriously.

I would like to enjoy Wednesday night’s underwear night but the dj plays boring music all night sadly. That’s why no one is ever on the dance floor. Play more rap and hip hop and top 40. Make the people happy. We don’t want to listen to edm.

I tried reporting about Alexander Harris aka Donnell Harris touching young people like a creep, and they still arent banning this customer Mr. Harris from going to the bar. My friends have also reported similar things at Garage.

Really fun and laid back place with friendly staff! Nightly events and drink specials (regular priced drinks still not a bad price). I definitely would go back.

This use to be my favorite gay bar/club in Las Vegas until they took away smoking and vaping inside. I’ve notice also since they’ve done that they don’t get as busy as they use to. I’ve asked a few of the workers there why they have banned it, I was told initially it was because of Covid, which makes since. But they told me they kept it because they don’t like their clothes smelling like smoke when they go home. Now I have ventured off to find spots that I can smoke inside. Nobody wants to leave a good conversation with friends to go outside to smoke.

No cover charge, hot gogo boys. I love this place!! Me and my homies used to hit up the one in Arizona like every weekend lol. I want here recently with the crew and my Mom cuz everywhere else was like a $20.00 cover charge. Couple of broke bishes, I know! Anyway. It was around Christmas time and one of the drag queen preformers had this totally rad GRINCH ensemble and performance. My Mom was on magic mushrooms and stoned to the bone along with the rest of us. The Grinch showed my Mom so much love and was chatting it up with her. Was probably tripping her out! lol, but it made my heart warm. Aside from that, the music was great! Kinda housey. Lots of ppl dancing. Killer dance floor. It's always so annoying going to the bigger gay clubs in town and they just play like top 20 greatest pop hits from the radio. Lord, if I have to hear S & M by Rihanna one more time, I am going to lose it. Hahaha. Anyway, awesome place. Very close to home for me and always a good experience. Y'all made our night by just existing. Thanks guys!

No cover charge at the door was great. The bartenders and gogo dancers were hot. The bar had good drink specials and cheap drinks to purchase. The bartenders were also attentive. I will be back.

Bar tender was asking around how to make a pina colada and a Midori Sour ... drinks/ shot over priced... kinda great atmosphere and music... there no vaping or smoking...Not the best spot for a club to be at. Also limited parking...Lots of potential for this club!!!!

Such a great time. We went on a Monday and it was pretty empty but still a fantastic vibe and time. I loved seeing people being their true selves without any worry. Refreshing

So much potential. DJ was terrible, EDM music the whole night. Almost no one dancing with nearly 200 patrons present. Very poorly executed. Playing danceable music would have changed the whole vibe. Underwear theme was also forced and awkward. Adding a sort of beauty contest or a runway display would make it more relevant.

Bartender served the guy right next to me then totally blew me off and went back to the other side of the bar after waiting 20 min to get a drink. Other bartenders walked by and made eye contact but didn't bother to serve. If you're not good looking or cute to them, don't bother.. Update: Gave a few stars for the drag show and queens though. Good performances.

this place used to be the pulse of the gay community… now, so many horror stories have spread not just about this place but all the gay bars / clubs, which is not saying much considering how it’s literally just Charlie’s and Piranha that Vegas has to offer gay people in the nightlife these days, everywhere else is a high-end straight club you would rather be at anyway.the energy here especially has BEEN gone… you can bet the music will always be below 100 db(a) because they have neighbors that complain on them, hire obnoxious staff with only one bartender remaining who actually cares about crafting a great cocktail, especially for his locals… now we can’t even enjoy karaoke on a Monday night because of all the shady things happening across the board in the gay community in Vegas, it’s truly shameful.

Somewhat of a neighborhood bar, so guess comes second. Or at least I felt that way!

I was there with my friends, I played with the casino machine and in the end I had $ 15, I waited for them to pay me but they did not pay. It was one of the worst drinks I ever drank in my life. I asked him for a better drink. Bar tender behaved very badly. I am very sorry that gay people have to go to such places with very bad behavior.

Congrats to the new gay dive bar I guess?Like what happened? This place used to be THE place! Now I’m amazed when there’s more than 20 people here. Maybe it was when the dancers and bartenders started sharing the horror stories or working here. Maybe it was Flash being a POS to anyone who isn’t a drag queen. Maybe it was most of the clear liquor being water based or watered down. We won’t ever really know what did this place in but we’ll never forget what this place used to be.RIP Charlie’s, you’ll be missed.

We love this bar and it’s non-smoking! Drink specials are great and so are the bartenders. We love to visit when we’re in Las Vegas. My only complaint is their web site is never accurate so we have to call to find out what’s going on each night. For instance, today is Monday, Memorial Day. We didn’t know til we called that it’s Drag Karaoke or that it was 2 for 1 drink specials.

This was the best part of our trip. We went three nights in a row. The drag queens were wonderful, the staff was friendly, and the go-go dancers were better than Aussie Heat. It was a good mix of locals and tourists. Things don’t really get started until about 11pm. Drinks were a little expensive, but not too bad. Definitely worth a visit.

The first time I went to Charlie's it was right after opening at about 4:00p. It was super quiet, but that gave us time to sit and chat with the bartender...

Went there with my family. Although we weren’t the most quiet people, we just wanted to simply have fun. The main drag queen was absolutely rude. She said she was there to express himself. Sure, nobody is a against that but that doesn’t give you permission to insult people. She kinda ruined the night for us. I think she could have handled things a little better here. Also her show was terrible, just moving a little bit here and there. Not sure what the big fuzz is here
