      PT's is amazing now!
      PT's is under new management and is fantastic. Cocktails and shot menu is funny but tasty. Friday nights are differently the place you go to dance. Drag shows on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday!

      Lots of women and feminine men who should be women who love drag queens and lovers of men who dress as women. I like people who love men. No real men here just a bunch of drunks who men and WOMEN like watching drag. Where ARE THE NAKED MASCULINE MALE STRIPPERS????????????? Bunch of read necks and ugly people. Is this really a gay bar? I don't plan to be back anytime soon. Bar sucks big time! And this is a man's dance club? Where are the men dancing? Also there is no working website.

      A Saving Grace
      After being turned away from the L-word, my friends and I went straight to this place. The bartender was much more kind and willing to serve you a drink. The atmosphere was dark but had a nice deck that you can sit at. The drag show was very entertaining and they were very sweet. My girls and I had a blast.

      Not too bad
      I'm new to the area and this was my second stop on Friday night in my quest to find the best gay/lesbian bar. It was definitely a step up from The L Word on Frink St., but just about anything would be. The cute female bartender was very nice. She told me it's owned by the same person as The L Word, and was surprised the bartender there had turned me away. This place started to pick up around 11:30-12:00. Mostly men, but a few small groups of females as well. There were very nice looking and well built male Go-go dancers. The dance music was suitable. Wish there had been more women, but I expected mostly men since that was the description. They are supposedly busier on Saturday nights with their drag show, so I may have to go back and see for myself.

      What happened to Gay Night Life in SC?
      In February, I visited PT's on a Sunday night. There were 9 people in the bar and that included the DJ, the cute little bartender and some guy surfing on a laptop. The bartender told me that nobody goes out on a Sunday night anymore like they used to do back in the 90's when I was in college. Recenty, I ventured to PT's again on a Saturday night. Much better... there were approximately 30 people in the space, including 2 cute bartenders, the DJ, 4 strippers, 2 guys on door and the owner. Now, everyone that worked there was very sweet and good-looking; however, the bartenders didn't know how to actually mix cocktails and the strippers were... tired. The music was great and the guys were nice, but nothing to brag about. I had a good time, but was a little disappointed because back in the 90's when I was in college there was all kinds of gay entertainment in SC and it was HOT. I'm also a bit spoiled... I'm from NYC.

      little something for everyone!
      Located in the heart of Columbia, PT's 1109 has a wonderful patio deck where everyone can hang out when not tipping the dancers. They open every night of the week and have a wonderful Sunday happy hour out front so we can watch the cars go by and enjoy the weather with friends!
