First time visit, live entertainment very good, staff very friendly, enjoyable evening, then we received our bill. Lady s drinks very expensive. Did not have a lot to drink but the bill was more than all other bars added together. BE AWARE.

Yes. If of age, they allow un-escorted Filipinas. Mostly an entertainment bar.
