About Our Venue


Two gender-neutral bathrooms

We are proud to offer two gender-neutral bathrooms, one containing a stall and urinal, the other containing three stalls. Our beautiful, gender-neutral bathroom lightbox (sign) was locally made by Schwass Productions.

The entrance to the bathrooms is located on the right side of the bar.

Cover Charge

Free before 10pm, only 10$ after

Pride believes we can provide for our performers and workers without relying on people to drink alcohol. A cover charge ensures Pride can keep its beverage prices reasonable, indeed we can get a Vodka Soda or Schooner of Craft Beer for under $10 at Pride. We can help keep fair businesses alive by paying a small cover charge, or by joining earlier! Our sincere thanks.

Disability Access

Pride apologises for reduced accessibility

We apologize that our venue currently do not have enhance accessibility to individuals with physical disabilities. We are located on the first floor of a 1970s building which does not yet have an elevator. We are working with the building's owner to have one installed, but it will take several years due to the extensive work and cost involved. In the meantime, our venue is accessible via stairs. We sincerely apologize for this.
