Eamon.....hope I spelled it right...is a fantastic bartender. Such an asset. I'd go back simply because he's the bomb. What a fun time. Great drag shows. Amazing energy and just a fantastic time.

Maybe I just went on an off night, but for a place called “queer” bar, it sure felt like they did all they could to make it feel like a gay man only space. I didn’t go during a drag show, so hopefully maybe it’s better then. Otherwise, as a queer woman, I’d unfortunately give this place a pass.

They charged us an extra $76 on a $7 bill. We have emailed several times, and were told the message would get passed to a manager but we haven’t heard back. They don’t have a phone, and we are from out of town so can’t go in. It’s unfortunate that leaving poor reviews is sometimes the only way for a place to acknowledge a situation like this, as we had a great time there. I understand mistakes can happen but it shouldn’t take more than 2 weeks to get a charge that large reversed.

We went for the s*** talk with Delta, it was fun. One of the best drag shows we've seen. We were going to stay and dance after but man they play the music so so loud. We must be getting old or something... 5 stars because the drag show was fun and the atmosphere is great. Please know the music does not need to be obnoxiously laud to have fun.

Went to Queer/Bar for a drag show last night! Had a great time with my husband. It’s very rare to go out nowadays because me and him have different work schedules and yesterday was the day where we can actually enjoy some time together. Also, we like live pretty far from there: Issaquah, WA. Otherwise, had an amazing night. Saw some cool performances, very nice bartenders, and saw some of my old acquaintances 🥰. If you want to see some good drag, I highly recommend coming here and support local queens. Last night’s main event was Delta Works comedy show and I laughed so hard!!! Love love love it 😍! Lastly, I want to say my thanks to Jesse the bar supervisor for the free drink I had last night. You’re an amazing individual and I hope good things will come to you. 😘

My friend and I were drugged by the bartender and convinced to finish our drinks then after we left once we felt something was wrong they pushed my friend into a car/Uber and once her boyfriend said he was going to come get her and had her location they yelled at her to get out and charged her over 70 dollars. Stay away from here if you’re a woman or anyone really. This place is the worst.

Appreciated the security checks at the front, bartenders try to service quickly, staff takes empty drinks quickly for patrons safety. If you do not reserve a table, you cannot get the shareable drinks.

Went bar hopping on a Saturday night for my friend's 21st and came here for an epic time! This place is lit! This is where the party's at, everyone is living their best life and it was so much fun! We were a gender diverse group but didn't experience any rudeness from bartenders, security, or patrons as others mentioned. The drinks were good and fairly priced, but best of all everyone was so friendly and fun! I didn't see the bathrooms so can't speak on that, everywhere else seemed adequately maintained. The dance floor is relatively small and generally crowded but that's a sign of how poppin' it was! Hope it's this much fun next time we come back

literally so rude. As I gay man I’ve never felt more uncomfortable by the staff. The bartender was so rude when serving us and then proceeded to tell all the staff that my group looked young and approached us to double check our ID’s because they thought we snuck in just to realize we were all of legal age. What’s the point of having an outside bouncer if you’re just going to second guess his ability of doing his job.

An iconic place. Queer bar puts on the best shows, and they put a lot of work into making sure that their guests are taken care of. The bar tenders are great, and the security team is amazing! Love love love this place! 💕

Loved coming here for a show. A booth is only $50 (for up to 5 people) during the week. We were able to squeeze in a 6th friend who just payed cover at the door. It was perfect. Beverages were fantastic- the female christ was a favorite. There was also a slew of non-alcoholic beverage options and food. Love dancing here and the staff are so fantastic*definitely loud, bring ear protection if you're sensitive *

Energy is amazing however… we paidFor a VIP table for two of us and had 3 different groups of people keep trying to take our table when we went outside even though it said reserved during the whole show…. Very little BIPOC queer people so keep that in mind, definitely more of a white space. Loved the performances

We went there on 7/21/22 for the first time and when we walked inside we were shocked by the LOUD sound. I’ve been to so many music festivals and clubs and nothing compares to how loud this place was. It was so uncountable that we left in less than 3 minutes. In fact, one of my ears is hurting right now. Not sure if the DJ was deaf, or the place was trying to intentionally blast everyone’s eardrums. My first experience left such a bad impression.

The security wouldn’t let my cousin back in because they said he didn’t pay. I asked if they had the ability to check the cameras to confirm he paid or can I speak with the manager to confirm. They brought out the security manager supposedly who told me no they could not check cameras and then that he had to cut my wrist band because I was being aggressive. I showed no sign of aggression so it had to be something else. I won’t express the conclusion I came to but take your money somewhere else, this place is lame.

Went out late on a Friday night, queer bar was poppin! The energy was so fun, everyone was dancing and the DJ was playing good music. Our bartender Austin took the best care of us and made us amazing drinks. I asked for a surprise drink and was not disappointed, queer bar is the best! And I felt super safe while there:)

Desperate for money? Poor little bar! Bar is empty. No wonder why? The doorman just asked tried to get a $10 cover at 1:40 am and they close at 2am. I won't be back. Go to Union Bar. No cover at 1 am.

I went with my boyfriend on a Friday night and it was dominated by straights, with parties of them reserving half of the seating. It felt more like a gay themed bar than a gay bar. Three stars for great food and service, but it’s not what I was expecting from a gay bar.

I have never had a problem with queer bar. On Saturday At the door I was with my friend and a really rude security guard accused me of having a fake military ID. I chose to walk away since arguing with him would've been pointless. I enjoyed my night later at some of the other bars. I went to 5 different bars and no one had a problem with my military ID. If your a soldier just bring your drivers license as well. Queer bar is great when you're in and the atmosphere is amazing and most of the security at most of the bars are ex vets. You may run into the occasional random, but unlikely since I've been here for about 5 years now and that's the first time ever. Good luck and enjoy yourselves.

Last night seeing bosco was amazing but we paid for a table where the website said “table service “ we did not get table service and we’re told it was because of omicron. Please change your website if we are still using covid as an excuse when the bar was jam packed with people. If you can deliver food and pick up glasses your servers can definitely take orders.

We were late on Saturday night and didn’t want to wait in line. So we were back for cold beers Tuesday evening, good selection of cocktails & eats on the menu.Clean, well-kept, fresh decore, comfy environment with a variety of seating areas: booths, small tables & chairs, bench seating, and the bar. Great ambient music.Small well-lit dance floor and if the dance music is as good as the background sounds, this will be a great place to dance on the weekend

They aren't taking any precautions, packing the venue to the point of being unable to move and the are not requiring proof of vax records (some other bars are). The honor system is not a good system for community safety. Other bars are requiring proof of vaccinations records. Tell me you want to alienate disabled people and not create a safe space for everyone without telling me you want to alienate disabled people not create a safe space everyone.

This place is amazing! I love the atmosphere and the vibe that is created. It is a nice modern twist on your typical bar setting. I feel very high class coming here as everything is clean and nicely decorated. I typically order bar food and regret it because its just average or mediocre, however that is not the case here. I got the chicken wings and DANG that was bussin. I also appreciate how friendly the staff was!

Great bar to have a fun and interactive night! Great shows regularly, friendly staff, and great game/trivia nights. Also has some great food if you start your night early..you have to try the jalapeño corn fritters. And don’t forget the tiny bar upstairs.

I booked reservations at this venue for my sister's 50th birthday party. My party was not disappointed! The show was awesome ! Even though the menu was simple, the food was delicious. The event coordinator was very passionate about making the night perfect and the staff did not disappoint. I will definitely come back!
