I think a lot of the older bitter queens are just getting irate. This place usually is for the younger crowd and is usually packed. I'm 26 and this really isn't my type of bar, but its the only place where you'll find men and women dancing in the Castro. The place is has no cover and EVERYONE knows it so if you don't like being crowed beyond belief, don't go on Fri/Sat. You'll find straight couples and a few gay boys w/ their straight girlfriends, not too many lesbians. The crowd is mostly gay boys 18-30 something, but everynight is different. If you go regularly, the music is repetative, but its current and you can dance to it. Hardcore ravers and house lovers will probably be dissapointed w/ the mainstream offerings. Drinks are priced fairly and strong! The bad thing about this place is how crowded it is.
Pros: strong drinks, good place to dance, no cover!
Cons: huge crowds, lot of bridge and tun, gross restrooms
