      Great fun
      This was my 3rd stop on a Friday night out in my search for the hottest gay/lesbian hang out. The atmosphere was great and the music was awesome! This place had it all...a quieter bar in the front to sit and socialize, a hoppin dance floor in the back with a great DJ, another bar area in the back to socialize while being in the middle of all the action, and an outside patio area with another bar and tables. A mix of gay and straight patrons with it becoming more of a gay scene as it got later...Mostly men, I wish more women had been there. They had a hotdog vendor outside and he had the best hotdogs ever! They closed at 2am, so most everyone headed to Kelly's Pub a couple blocks down to continue the night. This place was lots of fun and seems to be the best place for gay nightlife in Columbia, as far as I can tell.

    • cool yet interesting...
      not a totally gay bar, but seemed very open to all... you will find more local gays here!! so far.. this is de only place i can fit in Cola!!

      Loved IT
      I was visiting for the weekend and finally found it about midnight on a Friday. Went straight (not literally) to the dance floor and did not leave for hours!! The DJ on Halloween was pumpin' !! I can't wait to go back, Hope New Years Eve is just as great!

      may not be a gay bar, but they are gay friendly
      Although Art Bar is not a gay bar the crowed is very much gay friendly! Fridays is definitely the place to be. They have a great DJ(s) and usually start off with 80 & 90's music. Then towards the end of the night they get into GREAT dance music. AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A GAY BAR BUT YOU WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO TELL ON FRIDAYS...
