no cover , free coat check , piano bar, no creepy straight guys trying to grind up on me? check , check check , and CHECK! I found myself randomly here.. after a friend and I went shopping and decided it would be a splendid idea to get trashed .. since we had been shopping and had stuff we didn't want to be packed into the confounds of the numerous CC bars or old city bars with people spilling stuff all on our stuff.. so we wandered into the gayborhood.. we found out woodys had happy hour from 5-7 on a SATURDAY! drank a bunch there met some cool people and then ended up at tavern... the upstairs where apparently people get down on the dancefloor had a line.. I don't do lines .. and that's annoying ... so I stayed downstairs and listened to really great music being played and sang at the piano... it's great hearing old show tunes that you NEVER hear at the straight bars/clubs.. so that was definitely nice...the piano man took requests and would play while others sang.. many people got up there and sang very well .. I was surprised thinking I'd hear screeching.. but to the relief of my ears that did not occur.. this place like woodys does NOT accept credit.... that's a giant no-no for me.. despite that all is well!

The staff was nice and understanding, the pool and patio area is awesome, the bar/nightclub suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks, and the rooms are 'eh'. Actually, the rooms are really outdated and I think they like it that way, as if they keep the style outdated so they'll never have to change the mattress. But it's a great place to party, get drunk, maybe a little obnoxious (we were pretty loud), just not recommended for the parental visit. A little pricey considering we wouldn't walk on the carpet in bare feet.
