Popular lesbian bar My Sister’s Room showed off its new home on Friday with a burlesque fundraiser and a dance party.

The bar recently moved two doors down, doubling its space in the process. The new building is 5,000 square feet, which includes a 2,500-square-foot dance floor. There are also two levels, a new VIP section with bottle service and view of the stage, an enclosed heated patio and an outdoor patio.

Friday night kicked off with a fundraiser to get the Queerly Beloved Revue burlesque performers to Las Vegas to run a panel at ClexaCon, an annual media and entertainment convention for LGBTQ women and allies.

The night was capped off with a DJ-driven dance party, live performances and, as always, scores of women.
