East Atlanta’s newest gay bar, Asylum, threw open its doors for a soft opening last weekend that included a 50th birthday party for drag doyenne Kitty LeClaw.
The bar took over and revamped the former home of Echo Lounge on Flat Shoals Avenue, adding a third option to the village that already offers LGBT hotspots Mary’s and My Sister’s Room.
LeClaw’s event, which came after brunch and an afternoon tea-dance, also served as the premiere of Lunacy as the bar’s Sunday drag attraction. Think of it as Kitty’s Meow Mix 2.0 with Savannah Leigh (top photo) and a host of other performers.
With the lights up and out at Jungle and the future of gay dance clubs in question, meet the owners and managers of some of the most popular gay bars and clubs, and let them welcome you in their own words.
