I was brought here by my friends when it was at capacity and it was honestly my nightmare. I could not deal with the shirtless boys touching me and having their sweat all over my clothes. The music was also atrocious. The bartenders take significantly longer to serve girls than guys.... However, the worst part was how rude the boys were. Someone said "Ew, vagina" when we walked in. Very off-putting when the community is supposed to be about including everyone considering how long the fight for gay rights has been.
