Looks are quite deceiving.

Great looking place. Seems as though you have to be involved with a certain click of drag queens in order to get decent service. Found it. To be irrational that we were passed by... read more

Just went there for an afternoon beer. Paid cash and left a nice tip. Asked the bartender a question and he ignored me twice. Was the only one in the place. Should have known better to expect anything due to the dumpy exterior. My guess is there is no other decent place in town. Was there on a Saturday as... More

I have been to the Embers numerous times and always have fun! The drag shows offer you a glimpse into the local gay community and are always entertaining! The cover charge of weekends is really cheap compared to other bars in downtown. I love being able to go between the dance club in the back to the show up front,... More
