Bars & Clubs in ColumbusThe Levi / cruise bar in townPROS:
1) Strong drinks
2) Cruisy bathrooms
3) Nice back porch
4) Leather store
5) 30 - 50 somethings
1) Little distance from other bars
If this bar was called the "Eagle", you would know what to expect when you walked in. ( Supposedly there was an Eagle in town, but it turned twinky, so people open a new bar Eagle in Exile, and eventually they dropped the "Eagle in " part ).
Bars & Clubs in ColumbusCool chic barPROS:
1) IT bar in town
2) 20-30 somethings mainly
3) Full menu
4) Outdoor seating
5) Strong drinks
1) Food is just average ( dont expect high quality... just Applebees-ish )
OVERALL: Every town has their popular established "bar". Union Station is it. While it caters to 20-30 somethings, everyone can come. The food is hit or miss, but if you dont expect anything more than Applebees you will be fine. You cant go wrong making a stop here.
1) Great design bar
2) large outside patio
1) small in winter
This was a great place to hang out in the summer. Large outdoor patio. Most other bars on Church St, have a very small outdoor patio for people watching. I guess the patio is great for the summer, but in the winter the inside is small.. so I have to assume it is tight.
Great neighborhood barPROS:
1) Dance floor
2) Nice front bar
3) Great neighborhood bar
4) Lesbian night Wednesdays
The title says it all.
Trashy strippersFirst of all this is a strip joint, so I dont expect high standards.
If you are out on the town and want to go for a campy night out, this may be fun place to go for a few laughs, but as a lot, the dancers are kinda trashy. I do like strip clubs, but I would expect some hot beef when I go. It is sad that this place does not have any ( well they did not have any hot beef during Pride, when you would think your "A" team would be out ). It is not like Campus in Montreal or BJ's in Atlanta.
chic design EaglePROS:
1) trendy dark bar
2) scruffy clientele
3) great upstairs patio
4) dark area
CONS: 1) Limited number of people on upstairs patio.
Like other reviews have said, if you have been to an Eagle in the world, you know what this bar is like. I would say this Eagle has updated their inside to be very chic design, but it keeps it dark industrial feel. The only downside is that they can only have a limit number of people on their upstairs deck. So you can wait 15-20 min just to go upstairs. ( To be fair, Toronto has some very strict occupancy laws and this causes the Eagle, as well as other bars, look dead inside on busy nights )
Flagship gay bar of TorontoPROS:
1) Great space
2) Drag shows
3) Best Chest competition
4) Best Butt competition
5) Located right on Church
CONS: 1) Weak mix drinks ( govenors on mix drinks )
This bar is for everyone, but it tends to focus more on 20 / 30 somethings. They do have weak drinks, but to be fair, Toronto and Canada have govenors on their mix drink bottles, so beer is the best to drink when out... or drink mix drinks before you go out.
Bars & ClubsHumm This is not the Vancouver I was thinking ofGay cities must have a bug. Vancouver, WA is definitely not Vancouver BC.
Hotels in Sao PauloGreat hotel one block from Paulita AveNice neighborhood. Lots of restaurants near by that are gay friendly. Very safe. Rooms are modern and nice. Pretty much ground zero for Sao Paulo pride. Staff that speaks English.
20 min walk to Oscar Freire st ( fine shops )
20 min walk to Ibirapuera ( like central park of Sao Paulo.. lots of gays running around )
15 min cab ride ( 10 min subway ) to Mercado municipal ( huge farmers market )
30 min cab ride to The Week
30 - 90 min cab CGH airport ( depends on traffic )
Praca Alexandre 5 min walk ( cruisy )
20 min walk to Japanese section of town ( funny huge Japanese center here where everything is Japanese.. you think you in Japan )
30min walk to Higienopolis.. center of Lebanese life in Sao Paulo
NOTE: Paulista ave is nice to walk down, but there really is not much there any more. Most stores have moved to Oscar Freire and closer to Ibiraquera. There is a mall at one end that is nice. Also Rue Augusta is home to much night life gay / straight.First to Review
Restaurants in Sao PauloThe gay restaurant in Sao Paulo.PROS:
- Middle of Paulista Ave
- Good Food
- The "IT" place for gay
- Food is pricey
There are lots of eye candy at this restaurant. People in Sao Paulo ( like most of South America ) eat late, so it can seem empty before 9pm. This is mixed restaurant, but gays are the main clients. Most of the help speaks English.
