BarFly's Review of Boxxes (CLOSED)
Cutie pie go-go boys shake their tailfeathers in front of big screens and video projections throughout the bar, which connects through to the Brig (danceclub) and Red Cap Garage (the primo people-watching perch on Vaseline Alley). Friendly, attractive staff. Low to no cover, fun events nightly.
Open 5pm-1am Monday-Wednesday, 5pm-2:30am Thursday-Saturday. Dark Sundays.

I went to Boxxes which is really the RedCab Garage. On this site Karaoke is on the menu for Wed, so I made the trip with my GF. There was a lone guy on the stage with a keyboard singing HORRIBLY, and I asked the bartender if they had open mic all night. He responded with a curt "NO" and turned around and walked away. Apparently we werent gay enough to get a polite response as to the entertainment for the evening. They were not at all busy so maybe they dont need the business either. Asshole.
I love that it's non smoking...and dollar drinks on Thur are even better (even though my tab always reflects higher prices...HMMM???)...only drawback...music fuckin' sucks...way too loud, horrible sound system and the DJ must smoke rocks beforehand cuz he will mix the worst shit together...but, for $5 you can fucked up and watch all the barista queens trying to look fly in their clearance priced jeans...oh, and love the Asian gay hair styling queens who walk around like they own the place. LOL!
I have enjoyed every time I go to this bar. The boys are hot and not too snotty. The employees are polite except when they need to be assertive. I have no complaints to this point. I do miss the Panarama. It really set the whole block!!
I love the Video DJing, The bartenders know how to mix a drink, and The Boys...need i say more? This is a casual atmosphere, no need to dress up in your Aber/Hollister Best! Very nice group of people at this bar.
