Black walls, crap music, cheap draft beer, old white guys passed out at the bar..what more could you ask for in the way of seediness?! Safe place to talk to very friendly bar hostesses.. Right on 136 Street in the heart of one of many red lightish streets...worth a visit just to people watch if nothing else.

Fun Hostess Bar with great staff. Comfortable and relaxing. They have English speaking supervisor type ladies who are happy to interpret. Heaps of nice girls who mostly survive on someone buying them a drink, which is fair enough. Like everywhere in this City, the girl drinks are around USD$3.75 and usually only contain soft drink. Happily the girls get a... More

I toured the bars on 136 bar this past weekend. THIS bar is not worth your time for sure. While I was there nursing a beer, I was asked to buy drinks about 25 times by large overweight women and ladyboys. One customer complained that they padded his bill and was violently thrown out of the bar buy several men... More

First i got dhort changed for my drink which i asked to pay for as i went. Sorted that out quickly. Could have been a genuine mistake.then got ambushed with some scam about having taken a handbag from one of the girls "10 days ago". (I wasnt even in the city) "Oh, it was a month ago". First the manager... More

We had heard about this place and we all wanted to check it out. The pool table was upstairs and getting up those dark steps was death defying. The pool room area was disgusting. Dirty chairs, danger traps with carpet ripped and sticking up. No tips on the cues. I ordered a vodka and orange and couldn't taste any vodka.... More

Of all the girlfriend bars this was my favorite that particular night anyway. Good crowd, big smiles and fun girls. You can dance at this place as it's a wee bit bigger than the others. We played a game this night of just having one beer in each of as many of these girlie bars as possible and my companion... More

This bar is similar to most of the bars on 136 Street. I did not have a bad experience other than the usual girls hanging around so I can buy then a drink. I did find the place in a need of some renovations. I did have a better experience on 118 Street.
