  • The bar is kind of like a leather bear...
    It may look intimidating, but it's really just a lovable softy. Love this place for the same reason I like a lot of bear bars. The guys are typically just about having a good time with little pretense. Everyone can feel comfortable here, and if you're a bear fan like me, you feel WAY comfortable. The bar staff is super friendly. The clientele is approachable and adorable. It's a bit smokey for me, but i can deal with it. Lots of fun toys upstairs to inspire the imagination. Good place to give a big midwestern man a squeeze. Careful though, midwestern boys may be mild-mannered, but they are kinky as hell.

  • It's fine.
    A decent bar. Seems to be a stop for most gay guys on a night out, but I can't say there's anything special about it. Crowd is mixed. The spaces are little awkward. Everything sort of feels like a hallway. I think decent music would go a long way towards making things better.

  • Grab a drink, be yourself, and enjoy the show
    A pretty interesting place, but pick your night. Friday night is no cover and all about the performers. My partner and I are gay, but Talbot is a club that a lot of our straight friends, especially ones in their 20s love (we're in our early 40s). Can't explain it, but one night, we took some straight guys there then we all went a straight bar to hang out. The straight guys wanted to go back to Talbot! It was Friday and there were lots of bachelorette parties in the house so maybe it was all the drunk straight women they wanted to see, but they seemed honestly entertained by the quality performances. Saturday night is diverse in a different way, with fewer straight folks, but more ethnic diversity, especially once the 9 and 11 o'clock shows are over and the dancing starts. The dance floor won't really fill up until about 11:30, but it's tons of fun when it does. I don't know if it's just because we know a lot of different ages of people, but we've always found everyone to be pretty friendly. Yeah, there's always a few clueless young guys who are desperate to be noticed by guys who look just like them and some guys are just shy, but that's pretty much true anywhere. The music thumps and the drinks are just fine. The drag performers obviously are working hard and eager to entertain. If you go a few times and are friendly, staff starts to know you. What more can you really ask of a place? I always feel happy and at home at Talbot Street.

  • Felt very welcome and had a blast
    This was the first gay resort where my partner and I have stayed. We'd planned on going to the beach each day, but my partner decided the clothing optional option was too good to pass up and we ended up hanging out by the pools all week (and at some point, most nights, too). The staff was super friendly and helpful. The guests, most of whom had stayed there before, were warm and welcoming. There was pretty much always someone to talk to. By the end of the week it felt like a cool, gay summer camp. The rooms were just what we needed, spacious, clean, and the fridge helped keep our booze and snacks cool. Easy walk to decent quick food resaurants. It was a short cab ride to the clubs. And when you come back there's always someone to chat with in the hot tub before you bed down at night :) The clientele was mixed in age, which we both liked. Everyone from daddy bears to late 20-somethings strolled in and out. It's not a luxury resort, but is a great value for the price.
