Thanks Craig. We actually usually serve in glass, but switched to plastic just for Pride weekend. Sorry you were unimpressed. We definitely recommend that people check out one of the great restaurants in the neighborhood before or after the show.

I read the website and they said it was a show with men performers and female with other for the show. It is not a show it is stripper with pasties. Sucked.More

Had a very nice time at UU last week. Fun show, fun staff. Fun. No food, though, and that's the only drawback.

A wonderful night to lose your cares and immerse yourself into laughter and wonder. This is definitely a diamond in the rough. Very clean establishment, very welcoming, bar is well stocked, very relaxing.

Went to see the magic show tonight. It was flipping amazing. If you enjoy magic at all you really should make an effort to go to the show. I would go back and see this again it was as good as any big Vegas show
