    Beware
    Beware server Shahid. He is obviously straight but pretends to be gay to get free shots. Also gets you to wait to pay at end of night vs pay as you go so he can pad the bill. A $150 US mistake. Live and learn.

    MEN beware ... now Dixie Lynn's Drag Bar
    Shame on the owners. Chuck Hyde's legacy is dead. Sidetrack used to be a great place to hang out and see and talk to MEN and a pillar of the gay community. Now it's just a capitalistic (in the worst sense if the term) drag bar in partnership with VH-1 - Dixie Lynn literally runs the place - twinky boys and their bff girlfriends, and straights who think they're cool hanging with the gay folk. Sad. Complained to our favorite - for years - bartender and as was told "look around ... the cash registers are ringing, that's all we care about." Note to management: read any analysis of millenials as consumers ... they are fickle; they will leave as quick as they came and in the meantime you have alienated your core customers (Oh but that's ok I guess as one of the drag queens told me that my generation is the one with the problem). A look around tonight and the regulars who have supported and built this bar's business for years were no where to be found. A great business model. Good luck with that. Great real estate though for when that's all it's worth for condo development 18 months from now. Maybe I'll speculate on that .....

    Went uphill for a minute, now downhill fast
    Used to be a great bar before Danny (owner) died. New manager gave the place a much needed facelift. But now seems to be ANOTHER drag bar. Ugh!! Avoid.
