  • Order a Lemon Meringue Pie (or two) from Alex!
  • For shows the stage is well-placed -- everyone in the show bar side can see it. That being said there are too many bio queens (regular everyday biological women lip-syncing). There's no magic to that.
  • Be sure to stop by for Request Night and dance your azz off!
  • Going to Embers is like traveling back in time to the gay 90's.
  • Come see amazing and funny drag shows here Wednesday through Saturday plus sweet dancing and music in The Avenue. GREAT drink specials until midnight. Check it out.
  • I love the drag shows, but I'm not a fan of the crack heads dominating the slot machines during happy hour. They tend to bug you for cash.
  • The cocktail waiter for the drag show only goes to the beautiful people, is kind of hypocritical for a place like this. Whatevs. I just go straight to Lincoln! Plus Krystal makes it all worth it! :D
  • dance on one of the best dance floors in Portland, in a friendly, diverse crowd of welcoming, fun-loving patrons.
  • Try the Grape Kool-Aid by Lincoln. NICE and Refreshing!
  • Wednesday is goth/industrial in the back. Lincoln is your bartender. Take care of him and pound the dancefloor.
  • Don't go with a close mind. "A mind is a terrible thing to waste"
  • They're very stingy with drink specials and its one of the few bars in town with its well liquor on a regulated gun that underpours. Tacky decor. The place needs one big damn overhaul.
  • Try a Blue Opal from Alex!! Also the DJ takes requests, if he doesn't have it he will try to get it for next time
  • So, this place is not only a gay bar, but the bar is an aquarium.
  • Great shows...great staff ...fun place!
  • They now accept Credit Cards! Make sure to see Buttercup or Lincoln!
  • Tues nights is Recycle and Wed Nights are Goth/Industrial in the back room.
  • Drag show is always a good time. The bartender is fabulous, queens are to die for.
  • Request friendly, great drink specials (make sure you ask) just head through the front doors, to the double doors leading to the back room
  • Lincoln is the best bartender in Portland and a real sweetie!
