    Used to be AWESOME

    Some of the best nights of my life have been at The Bar Complex. But I fear those nights are no more. I visited the bar last weekend. It broke my heart. It was midnite on a Saturday night and there MIGHT have been 40 people there. The bartenders and doormen, who used to be out of their way friendly and always seemed to have a smile, just seemed miserable and mad. The show was slow and the performers just seemed to be going through the motions. NO ONE was dancing upstairs on the dance floor and there was just a few people in the lounge area. This bar used to be the place to go in Lexington. But now, there is more competition and it's really seemed to take its toll on the Lexington gay staple that used to be The Bar Complex. If they want to, again, be the meca that they used to be, they're going to have to step up their game AND QUICK. It was really disheartening to see what my former favorite bar has become The 2-star review is for nostalgia and nothing else.
