      romper room of straight drunks
      If you want messy teens being served illegally, multiple competing bachelorette parties amidst a backdrop of tragic no effort drag and u friendly out of town straight people, this is the place for you! Enjoy!

      Scandals doesn't really feel like a "real" gay's more like a bridal shower bar for straight people who want to feel like they are cool. If all you want to do is drink and might like it. However, if you are looking for an environment populated with a decent amount of gay'll be disappointed with this establishment.

      Hayday is over, but still best place to go.
      The new owners have made some decisions I'm not all that fond of and they seem to have lost some clientele. The club used to be one cover for all three levels. So, for those of us that have been around a while, this club has lost some of its appeal. However, if you want to dance its still the best place to go and seems to be improving somewhat.

      it's ok ...
      i like places with no attitude and however there's always some hateful attitude flying around here... the music is generally good and the shows are good as well...

      Big dance club
      Big dance club with mixed patrons. All of your usual gay clubers along with some very chic straight couples dancing as well. Scotty at the back bar makes the best drinks!!

      The Club For NC Mountains
      THE after hours place to get your dance on and party. Very unusual for such a small town like Asheville to have a place like this. Big old YMCA from the 30s or 40s converted into a three story club/bar. More relaxed bar upstairs, video bar and huge dance floor bar on main level, and drag bar downstairs. $8 dollar cover after 10:00 PM. Open Thursday thru Sunday.

      Shake it baby!
      Muzak is always pumping into the wee hours on the weekends. The smoke free bar and patio upstairs rocks with great muzak and videos too. Everyone who is anyone is here whether it be gay or straight. Get ready to dance your butt off!
