This is a little place with very friendly staff and a mix of gay, straight, lesbion and undecided, yet everyone respects each other and all seem to get along. Its one of the first kind of places like this have been in where there was no one focuse on who was wecome there. It was great.

Downtown Tacoma's Mix is a lively, active bar with karaoke specialty cocktails, beer, wine etc. Gay friendly...oh yes! But there is always a good mix of people, straight or gay hence the name! Weekends are super fun & I always have a good time!
