Travel Gay Reviews of Ivy BarLeave Review

  1. B Brad
    Tiny basement bar full of aggressive drag queens

    “Biggest disappointment in all of NZ. Tiny basement bar with garbage girl band music full of drag queens/transgender who grab you while the staff protect them because they are their regular customers. I've been all around the world and have never seen such a terrible gay bar.“

  2. D David
    Pop music galore

    “Fantastic dance floor playing the best music - pop classics, dance and more. Near to loads of restaurants and cafes. Guys here are hot and cute, although come later to avoid the older, slightly creepy men.“
