Daniel D, 44. Married in April 2012. Used be wild, now pretty mild, but enjoy going out sporadically.
Sad to leave
Husband and I stayed at Encore just as a get away. This was our fifth trip to Vegas, and usually stays at Four Seasons, which is at other end. Man have we been missing out! Encore was a fantastic hotel, with gorgeous rooms. We never really had to leave to hotel for anything. We did find ourselves spending more time in Wynn than Encore though for some reason. Used the spa, saloon, and fitness centers, all of which were very nice and comfortable. Every employee knew answers to questions, which I threw out there just as a test sometimes, and they greeted you throughout the hotel. There were lots of other gay couples/individuals around as well, which was nice to see opposed to the clientele at Four Seasons. We cannot wait to stay here again!
Good place to start an evening
Cheap not watered down drinks. Staff was nice (and cute) but the drag show going on the night I was there was pretty bad. More Lesbians than gay men. Ended up here because it was the only one around with a rainbow flag and I had no idea where to go! Could be a good place to start the evening off
Fun, laid back place
Friendly, slightly older crowd. Small but fun. Movie/TV clips between music creates a humorous enviroment. Would go back here anytime.
The best of my groups bar search
Visited SF this past weekend for the first time and Badlands was the best of the probably dozen bars in the Castro. Enjoyed it so much we ended up there all three nights in town. Great music, strong drinks, great staff and a packed dance floor. Can't wait to go back!
