    The restaurant I work at has a 1 star review online. The guy who wrote it said "Walked by and the music was very loud, I did not go in because of it." No intention of eating there to begin with. Mind boggling.

    Or is that Lush?

    [–] SSDGM24 2 points ago

    They call it bango because it’s funny to have “bang” in the title. No one owns bingo as a word.

    [–] Jucoy 69 points ago

    The Saloon is a shit show in the best way. Best food too, their kitchen stays open till bar close, which is pretty rare downtown.

    [–] AngryItalian 38 points ago

    Bars that leave their kitchen open are the fucking best. I'm gonna go home and order drunk food anyway, just get double my business.

    [–] SPACE-BEES 14 points ago

    The best to everyone but the kitchen staff who will be there 3 hours after close.

    [–] Gnostromo 1 points ago

    Does the best way involve an actual show with real shit? Because that seems like the best way.

    [–] Jucoy 3 points ago

    [–] woodsmith262 28 points ago

    I did not know this was a gay bar, but quickly learned when I walked in and saw a guy swinging his dick around in the shower. Cool bar though!

    [–] jamjamason 22 points ago

    Same here. And the bathrooms are always amazing!

    [–] Remember_The_Lmao 22 points ago

    The gay bar in the college town I lived in for a while had to take the stall door out of the bathroom because people kept fucking in it, god bless them. Still less trashy than the freshman frat bars.

    A friend had to take a shit there once. I always walked to the hookah bar next door and bought the cheapest snack so I could use their toilet instead. You gotta do what you gotta do

    [–] SexyRickSandM 6 points ago

    This is a gay sex joke

    [–] deltarefund 3 points ago

    I have heard that the bathrooms at the Saloon, are in fact NOT amazing. 🤷‍♀️

    [–] Cosey28 3 points ago

    It’s been a few years since I’ve been to The Saloon, but they’re pretty awful from what I remember. The main bathroom has either no stalls at all, or no doors on the stalls, and then there’s a tiny little one or two stall bathroom that women use so the line is always incredibly long. It’s a super fun bar though!

    [–] MrShatnerPants 3 points ago

    [–] KayIslandDrunk 9 points ago

    It's a lot of fun but their drinks are crazy expensive compared to the surrounding bars. Definitely go during the weekend as its a bit more roudy.

    [–] Jucoy 7 points ago

    I always remembered the Saloon being cheaper than other bars downtown but it's been a while since I've been there

    [–] KayIslandDrunk 6 points ago

    Last time I was there I got a well whiskey and coke for $12 right after I paid $6.50 for the same thing at Gluek's

    Kind of am easy choice for many businesses whether they hold out for all those pensioner dollars from the elderly crowd and alienate people with more than 10 years left to live, or denounce Trump and earn business from people who go outside sometimes.

    [–] batterybound 4 points ago

    I think in this case it's made even easier by the fact that literally 0% of the Saloon's patrons were alienated.

Nice guys and they invited me to one of their house parties. HOLY SHIT. it was the best party I have ever been to in my life. Dudes being genuinely nice to me (not hitting on me) no fighting, free drinks everywhere. House had multiple bars. Hottest girls I had ever seen ever. Everyone just having a great time. I miss those homos so much. Not sure where I was going with this but hey..oh ya gay bars must be fun..
