      Chic Club with Great Go-Go Guys
      G-Bar is really a big club with three bars (two on either side of an exposed brick wall with arches), a small dance floor and 14 video screens. Several VIP booths are on the right (looking in from the street.) Big balls (disco) and small red-lamped chandeliers hang from the ceiling, and a settee is up front so you can rest your tired feet while scoping out the patrons. Also of note are the thick pillars covered with zebra print fabric. When I was there in the wee hours of 2/22/15, there was a mixed crowd and I paid $5 for a rum and coke. The go-go boys were hot, beefy or chiseled types and were polite and friendly. I would definitely go back.

      A place for younger, more alternative crowd
      Whole neighborhood felt that way. Nothing wrong with it. It was very vibrant, but just not a place for a conservative, preppy 44 yo guy.

      The only "OK" time to go is Saturday nights. I'm from Vegas so I know about Expensive clubs but this place has crazy drink prices from bartenders who look pretty but cant make any drinks. The place is filled with smoke and as small as a one bedroom apartment in NYC. I wil say the crowd was prety good.

      smoky, smelly, ugly crowd
      Hot bartenders! Awful smoke chokes you an hour after they open. Yuck.

      Good TImes
      The Social in Ybor on Thursdays is great stuff. The space is packed with a bunch of college guys and travelers starting their weekends out early. Its a really friendly atmosphere, a load of dancing upstairs and a load of drink specials. You can never tell how the night is going to unfold. Some Thursdays are a Sausage factory and others a drag queen paradise.

      G BAR ROCKS!
      I've been to many gay clubs and bars around the country. G Bar was a combination of a neighborhood bar and contemporary nightclub all in one. The prices were extremely, competitive, dancers hott, and an all around great atmosphere. The bartenders were also great, especially the hot blonde in the corner!

      G BAR!
      G bar on Saturday is the Mecca of Gaybor! There are tons of hot men, a sexy space, great service and always ahead of the curve. Lady Gaga played there before she was famous and the shows and events continue to amaze. Great local talent (I love Macaviti) and the atmosphere is electric. This place is for anybody looking to dance off a weeks worth of troubles. The light show is fantastic, the dance floor is always packed, and the music pounding. From drag queens to go-go guys, locals to tourists, everybody whos anybody swings by the G. This will be the spot for Gasparilla this year so get your pirate hats now!

      TThe owner and staff don't know how to properly treat a high paying guest. They were out of Jagermeisterr and the ingredients to make lemon drops. The atmosphere is very stuff for no reason, it's Tampa, FL. not L.A. or Miami. I will never go again and do not recommend it.

      HUGE club with TWO HUGE ROOMS each with different music/dj's! MANY young guys...many middle age guys...some older guys! The most handsome males in Tampa Bay! Only a five dollar cover charge. Moderately priced drinks. Big bathrooms with about 10 stalls/toilets in each one. Friendly bartenders and all of the staff from the front door people, the barbacks, security, etc... HARD dancing on the dance floors...these guys get it hot in here! I KNOW a great club when I visit one...and I love going to the G-Bar every time I visit Tampa! Parking is not so difficult, as there are several spaces all around and even a secure parking garage nearby. MUSIC is the most popular of today...very high-energy. Crowd is pretty friendly, too. Imagine one of the best New York clubs...with extremely friendly people. I love G-Bar!

      Not so bad
      Clean and good decor. The crowd is OK too. Music is common and expected.
