What a dump! I do not recommend....

If you're an insecure, young, southern gay male, you will like Legends. Otherwise, you will find the place to be filled with annoying gossip queens and backstabbers. Most of the people in the place (clients and staff) are rude to straights and anyone over 30, which seems ironically hypocritical coming from a group so discriminated against in the south. And there usually is drama in every corner. The place hasn't been upgraded in several years, so you'll find the place lacking the luster it apparently once had, and it's aging badly. Not impressive.

Pros: Has a decent dance floor. That's about it.

Cons: Currently has an underpaid, terrible DJ. Badly aging club.

My experience some of the bartenders (NOT ALL) service the Anglo-Saxons over people of color ( Native American Myself) and somewhat ignore you for an extended period of time. I think (SOME) OF THE staff is somewhat prejudice. (Ain't that a crock!) The Drag shows are GREAT but it is always the same performers. They need to get some others girls to perform. The music is nice though!

My husband and I went to Legends on a Saturday night recently, and the club was nearly empty. The music was good, the patio is a nice touch, and the drag show was fun! However, *some* of the crowd isn't friendly to the hetero-sexual couples. Legends can also be intimidating if you're not going with a group of friends.

The bartenders are friendly, the drinks are good, the music is eclectic, and if you need to cool off after some feverish dancing, they have a really neat courtyard outside.

Great music and fun people, a very fun environment! They also have a variety of theme nights which are always a big hit and very enjoyable! Would recommend giving them a visit if you're downtown.

I've been to legends numerous times over the last 4 years. The staff at the front desk are quite rude, constantly. One made the remark to me "you DO know this is a GAY club, right?" Which was totally uncalled for. For being a gay club, they sure do act discriminately towards people that appear to be straight, which I am not.

To me, this is a very unique experience all its own. The drinks are good, the music is good, and the people are fun to be around, even if you dont' know them. If you want something different, try this place!!

I'm so happy to have found this bar. It's like a second home now that I've come to town. Thanks for making me feel so welcome now that I'm out of the closet.

My boyfriend had been to Legends with some friends before and when we met he took me there. I had no idea what to expect, since I'd never been to a gay/les club before but I LOVED IT! As a woman, I didn't have to deal with the crap you deal with at strictly straight bars (getting hit on, jerks, etc.).

The people there at Legends are all very accepting and it is the only place I've been in a long time where people will just come up to you to see if you're having a good time. We became regulars (I'm the asian chick with that HOT buzz-cut guy with the tattoo <3) but have fallen off the scene lately but we'll be making a comeback soon enough!

*Side note: He has to deal with being hit on more than I do! But people are very courteous about it and the atmosphere allows people to say hi to strangers and tell him they're looking good that night or just wanting to see how you're doing. Legends is a wild place and a great place to let loose!

HIGHLY recommended!!

Pros: Great music, atmosphere. Accepting and fun-loving, professional people.

Cons: Your clothes might be smokey later.

Originally, Legends was your typical smoky gay dance club with the drag shows, shirtless boys, clubkids, etc. But in the past few years they've made some impressive expansions. Bigger outdoor patio for one. But the best part: "The View", their new Nonsmoking section with "Video bar" and larger pool & game room. You can't help but wonder why they didn't have these ten years ago? It has definitely made it from "just another gay bar" to a great destination for your night out.

Pros: Video Bar/game room, Smoke-free Sections, Best club music

Cons: Crowds at peak time, Loud, Dance floor attitudes

.

its a good place to hang with friends, yes the guys there are have attitudes, but looking past that, they are nice to look at. some of the door men/women are getting better. the drag shows are great!!!. The view is awesome, smoke free now you can leave a the club with smelling like smoke the pool room is a great addition. the patio is great also. a over looking the attitudes,of the young guys the place is fun you have to make your own fun.

Legends is average, but one a small number of clubs that cater to a gay clientele. It's small, but it is popular among the 18-25 set. It can be hard to meet people due to the large crowds on the weekend. Music is too loud to have a conversation without talking loudly. Can be intimidating if you're by yourself, because the general attitude of the people there is that of being stuck-up, but not everyone is like that. Management should train the employees to be a lot more friendly, particularly the people at the door. They may pull a "members only" spiel on you at the door if you don't have a membership, regardless how long and how many times you've been there. Even though it is legal for them to do so, they should do it with consistency, and not just with people they don't like or find "undesirable."

Pros: Good drag shows, Servers remember you

Cons: , Cigarrette smoke, Snottiness

Ive been going to Legends for a few years now, and I agree with everything that is said here. The doormen can have the worst attitudes, they should take some courtesy lessons from the nice guy that works the door at CC. Music is always good, but there needs to be "HOT"go-go dancers in the cages. Drinks are always good, every weekend night the bar is packed but I usually do not have to wait too long for a drink. I love hanging out on the patio!! Everyone there just needs to lose the attitude-not sure why the door guys have attitude, you're a "door guy"....can't we all just get along?? Plus why, if I lose my ID and credit card at the bar can I only pick them up on Tuesdays from 4:14 PM - 4:22 PM?!?!?! People People give me back my numerous debit cards Ive lost there!!

Cons: Staff attitude, No Go-Go dancers, Attitude

Well....that pretty much sums up what i was doing at this place. Twidling my thumbs. People there were stuck up, it was small, the sound system was awful, the light show was equally as bad. Someone compared it to Velocity in Charlotte. Well, that "rectanglular box" sure has grown into a regional club. Even when it was the rectangular box, the sound system was incredible, the light show was 10x better then what's at Legends and the crowd was just a bit less stuck up then what i found at Legends as well. North Carolina is finally growning up (Ibiza in wilmington & Velocity in charlotte) yet the Raliegh-Durham area is still lagging behind. I find myself travelling every weekend to get away from the dismal nightlife here.

It was definitely a hot place to be on New Year's; the music was great, the energy was up, and everybody was having a great time. It's honestly a great club for anyone.

Legends is off the hook. It's cool when it's packed with tons of people and the music is good. Good looking people (some! haha) , great music and drinks to help you enjoy it more--what more could you ask for?

Well where to begin? 18 year olds everywhere, some cute, mostly little skinny boys. A lot of old nasty bears, a real bud lite kind of crowd in club that tries to put on a big city persona. If your not cute, or don't know the bartenders, it can be hard to get a drink. Str8 people get hated on before they get inside, if they can get inside. The outside patio is one good thing this club has going on, and the mens bathroom is kind of cool, in a mid 90's kind of way. Someone needs to teach the DJs how to beat match, and get them some new tunes. All in all, it is fun for what it is, though they need to lose the attitude.

The attitude just doesn't cut it! The chicken can be cute and the staff can be nice except for the doormen. There is just too much drama in their life. The attitude is that the customer owes them something for being allowed in and customer service is not number one.

Great Euro-Tech dance music and great looking boys! It can get a little too packed and the employees may get attitudes. Alot of young chickens who do not know how to dance but the good music by DJ Joey makes up for that as well as nice video screens. The best night is Sunday!

This is a great club for the pretty to see and be seen; however, for the ordinary person that is looking to meet new friends or just go out for a good time this is Not the place to be. The staff has no interest in customer service and the crowd draws on this negative energy hereby producing one of the snobbiest bars in the triangle. A defenite no go for my friends and I.

Legends is one of the larger and more consistently full clubs in the Raleigh-Durham area. There is always good-looking clientele here and the music's not bad, either.
