By all means go! It's a fun place to have a drink and watch a fun show. Kids are welcome early but show gets more risque as the nigh goes on.

We are thrilled you enjoyed your experience at Diamond Tooth Gerties and the Can Can shows! While we wish kids could come see the shows, Diamond Tooth Gerties is +19 regardless of what time you visit.

Cool attractions, good beer, can-can dancing and gambling! You can't really go wrong. A little bit pricey but tourist stuff always is. Lot's of history in the place, dawson in general is a pretty cool stop overall.

We are glad you enjoyed the shows. While you're right, any seat has a good view of the stage, we think sitting in the front is best, especially if someone at your table gets pulled up by on of the fantastic Can Can dancers! Did...More

You must go here once you're in Dawson City. The show is nice, drinks are good and very friendly staff, but most important, you're back to the 1898 goldrush period once you're in!

No, they would find it boring. Given the gambling I don't think they let anyone in under age 19
