The "NEW" Brass Rail, is so well, done, I didn't want to leave. From Floor to Ceiling, bartenders to door guy and Wall to Wall, the decorating is perfect/awesome/beautiful. It's warm and comfortable. The sound system is NOT harsh, yet audible. The lighting is soft and perfect. The back bar is classy. The changing colored lights are filtered through the booze bottles. Under the bar rail are additional lights, that are super cool. Can't say enough good things.

Pros: Drinks, Bartenders.Atmosphere

Cons: More dancers!!

I was hoping this renovation would be fantastic but I am so missing the old place. They hired only st8 bartenders that do not know the clientele, don't talk to their customers, and are cold. I miss the old place that was always busy, always fun, and the staff cared about me. I go in alone (no friends in this town) and I used to always have someone to chat with me and ask me about my night. It will be a straight bar within 6 months.... I'll bet you $10!

Excellent, cute, and no-nonsense bartenders. Good prices, very strong drinks! Old-school bar, fun on weekends with good DJ.

Pros: down to earth

Cons: tiny dance floor

.

This is a good place to hang out if you are in a mellow mood. The drag shows are okay, the go-go boys much better.

The bartender was funnier than hell, the drinks were wonderful (and reasonably priced), and the atmosphere was comfy-cozy! Great place to "lounge."

Pros: Friendly, Relaxing, Affordable

Cons: Too small

This is a suprisingly friendly spot. When you approah it from the outside, it's a little intimidating - it's just not a fancy spot and the entrance is small. However, once inside you'll discover that the bartenders are chatty (if you want them to be; they'll let you alone if all you want is an undisturbed drink). The bar has a large number of "regulars" and I have to say they're a friendly bunch. I wouldn't go here all dressed up in clubwear; throwing attitude around. This is a simple, fun spot. Nothing fancy.

Looking for a good drink,great friends,and a fun evening? This is the place to be.They have great nightly entertainment.Their staff is the friendliest in town.A nice alternative to the crowded dance floor at the Saloon and the "mixed" crowd at the 90's.

Pros: Friendly Crowd, Great Staff, No Cover Charge

Cons: It's Small

Editorial from

In Short
Although the Brass Rail features a raised dance platform and decent lighting, the major attraction is the attentive bar staff and a felicitous crowd of blue-collars, retired businessmen, queens, leather boys, just-out…
