Description

Riverfront Times' Description

Some say Novak's is a sister to Just John's -- and with its neighboring location and generous accommodations, we'd be hard-pressed to argue. Thanks to a more laid-back atmosphere, however, Novak's recalls a younger, hipper Cheers -- only a million times better because no one on Cheers was gay, and almost everyone here is. There's something for everyone at Novak's, be it washer tournaments when the weather is fine, bumping and grinding to DJs or ogling the sassy, magnificently plumaged drag queens that perform regularly. Straighties can occupy themselves at the bar playing Hot or Not with the soft-core imagery flashing on multiple TVs: boy, girl, girl in bathtub, boy-boy sandwich, beautiful alien Angelina Jolie. The space seems never-ending, with a large bar, roomy dance floor, an upstairs seating/game room and an outdoor patio that wends around the block. Novak's also features nightly entertainment, but with few consistent weekly events, it's important to check the calendar for karaoke (Novak Idol!), open-mic nights and drag shows.
