      not a large dance floor
      nice place, dance floor is an area of the bar that looks like they moved tables out of the way and called a dance floor. so if you are wanting to dance this isn't the place. ok crowd, drinks were ok bartenders a bit slow realizing that you need a drink.

      When I've gone here, it's taken forever to get a drink and some of the patrons seem like they need a gentle reminder that they are not in New York City. Ironic, since New Yorkers are really friendly!

      Close to my apt!
      Good theme nights during the week, outside sitting in front, and chic little side room with a bar for special groups that have an event going on.

      Fantastic place to visit
      The neat thing about this place besides providing a great atmosphere for the gay community is that it is only just around the corner from where I live :)

      Best bar in Cleveland!

    • So So bar!
      So so bar Every time I have been in that bar it's basically attitude it's a S and M bar meaning Stand and Model the staff has a very arrogant attitude and they look down on you very Condescending It's not my favorite bar in Cleveland and very rarely do I patronize that bar.

    • Friendly
      I have met some very warm men here. And some that I knew but had not seen for sometime.

      I'll have my Cleveland with a Twist
      From a traveler's perspective, Twist is the perfect bar. Everytime I have visited over the years I have enjoyed myself. The bartenders are welcoming and the space (an outdoor patio, bar, lounge and dance floor) is maintained well. There is alway at least a small crowd of people that is usually very diverse by age, sex and gender -- and all having fun together. The atmosphere is very casual and attitude free.

      too many fans
      i feel comfortable at twist and it can be a cool bar to relax in with friends. but its not a hot time. its not a cruise bar either. i'm puzzled why there are a multitude of fans for bars that don't have much to offer. i guess that any bar that doesn't ban someone gets that customer as a fan. that's a shame, because a visitor to cleveland would not get a good idea of what these bars are like, judging by the regular customers who talk up their favorite watering holes.

      Just another gay bar
      Small bar on Westside that has potential but after visiting a few times realized people in Cleveland really dont go out. Good starter bar but nowhere else to really go after. Drinks are expensive and more of a stand and pose type of place . Nothing special about the bar. Safe area.

      Starter Bar
      This is the starter bar for a night out. not bad but no reason to hang out all night. From here bypass the Hawk completely and head in for a quick drink -mind you, a QUICK drink- at Cocktails before hitting Bounce or LSS.

      Attitude central
      The place to be for those who need to be snubbed. Stand and model are the key words here. Its the cleanest and most stylish bar in Cleveland so it deserves three stars. The arrogant and self conscioulsy cool customers ruin what should be a nice experience. last time i was there four guys were at the bar and none would speak to anyone else. Two were absorbed in watching 'Modern Family' on the tv over the bar. ??? Stay home to watch your favorite tv shows. Bars are for guys to meet other guys. Ive never understood the posing and stand and model thing, even when I was younger.
