There's a brand-new gay bar in town. Called The World Famous Tin Room, it's at 3683 Fifth Ave. in Hillcrest.
Sister to the brand's original location in Dallas, the new spot describes itself as a "neighborhood dive bar with food during the day and go-go dancers at night." Its menu includes burgers, steak bites and fries and chicken fried steak.
The new business has gotten off to a solid start thus far, with a 3.5-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp.
Joshua S., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Jan. 16, wrote, "Great staff with a lot of Southern hospitality. Delicious food/hearty food. Definitely cannot wait to see the bar grow and become more!"
And Zach H. wrote, "Great vibe. Very homey, with that nice Southern hospitality. Place has amazing food; can't go wrong with the spicy chicken sandwich or the chicken fried steak, and the drinks never disappoint."
Interested? The World Famous Tin Room is open from 1 p.m.–1 a.m. on Monday-Thursday, 1 p.m.–2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m.–2 a.m. on Sunday.
