      Nice Place to Hang Out
      Putting aside specials, Flex has the cheapest drinks and food. Drag shows spice up thursdays and saturdays. Sometimes a local organization called imperial royal sovereign court of the desert empire, inc. has shows as well and it's nice and packed. You drink free on your birthday too. Smaller but still nice inside.

      Flex is a lot of fun on special event nights
      We usually go to FLEX for special event nights like UnderBEAR, where guys in underwear get draft beer 1/2 price all night. A smaller bar with sorta a neighborhood vibe, also has several pool tables off to the side if you'd like to play pool while you're there. They have a DJ on busier nights and he plays a good mix of music. You'll see people dancing and maybe go-go dancers if it's an event night. Definitely worth checking out what's going on, and a good break from "the Strip".

      Muscleboys replaced by wimps and drag... WTF?
      It's important to remember that FLEX used to be a show bar with bodybuilders and muscle strippers. How the mighty have fallen. Now it's twinks in Polo shirts, lesbian bartenders, and drag shows. As a bar, it's kinda OK. The bartenders are competent and know their beers and cocktails. The patrons are mostly 20-something guys doing their best to look cute. The space is clean and well maintained. As a result it lacks any character, style, or edge. Has anyone ever said they want a drink at a "wholesome" gay bar?

      Fun Place
      Flex is just a fun place. As an out-of-town crossdresser, it's always a little weird trying out new places on the road. However, as soon as you walk in here, people want to talk and hang out and generally make you feel comfortable. The drinks were great! Both Joey and Tony were excellent attentive bartenders. I was there on a Thursday, which happened to be the night of a drag show. The show was amazing with top performers from all over the country! On top of that, Stephanie does a great job of getting everyone in the place involved in the show. All in all, while the entertainment and drinks were great, it's the people who hang out here and honestly want to have fun who make this place a must visit for anyone traveling to Vegas. Oh, and it's easy to get to with plenty of parking! Melissa from NJ (first visit on 12/12/13)

      not your average gay bar
      not for the queen preeny pretentious types. mostly locals but what would you expect way out this way? yes hip hop nite may not be fore everyone but its not violent or scary or anything like that. i used to work here many years ago before i moved from las vegas so maybe im somewhat biased but i had good times at flex and bad attitude was a rarity.

      Friday is the Best night to go.
      Fridays are the best nights to go for dance music, cheap drinks and a drag show. Prizes and giveaways during the show for people who participate. Go-Go boys too. Definitely a locals bar, but tourists and visitors will have fun as well. Pool tables and slot machines if that's your thing. It's certainly not the overpriced, pay just to get in, $10 per drink, overrated clubs found elsewhere in the city.

      skip it
      We went on a Saturday night. 2 guys, 2 girls all gay. First, the place is a dump. This isn't a deal-breaker- some of the most fun clubs in NYC are dumps. BUT, the bar tender was str8 and kinda dumb with no idea what was going to happen in Flex later in the night (a show? dancers?). The go-go boys were were pushing $5 shots to a crowd of 7. The music was hard-core rap... at a gay bar! Strong cocktails, but not cheap. It could be a fun place. It has the space and a small stage. I hope they get it together.

      stop by. give it a try
      First. This is a small local bar. Not a place to dine. Flex has gone through changes. Great friendly barstaff. Good music. Good drinks. Vegas gets started around 11 pm everywhere. Go early for quiet drinks. Stay and party with the locals

      This place is trash. I have yet to see one gay bar in LV worth a crap. Every one of them sucked
