I’m ashamed to say it took me a few years to finally get inside this bar because it turned out I was missing an absolute party right in the heart of Northalsted. With its flashy West Hollywood feel and incredible group of daily rotating drag queens, I always leave here feeling 100% more fabulous, just by association. This restaurant and bar has been a staple of the area for 21 years and continues to be one of those spots I try to make all of my friends go to with me every weekend. All the drinks come with a little bit of flair, including some with glow sticks, and the food, like their chicken and waffles, is some of the best in the neighborhood. Make sure you make a reservation because this place gets busy.
