What it's like inside: This historic gay resort remains a top destination for those who are out and love to go out. There are rooms and bars for every persuasion. The Princess pumps hip-hop jams old and new. The Video Room pairs Top 40 tunes with music videos in a curated playlist by Joe, veteran bartender. The main room is the Disco, complete with a stage and large bar where EDM mixes with Top 40 all night and well into the morning. Outside, the pool becomes a venue during warm days and nights, also complete with stage and bar. Out back, the Bear Den is a testosterone-driven sports cave where harnesses and trucker hats are the predominant attire, and sports and porn play on wall-mounted TVs. A large stuffed bear sitting atop the classic jukebox is the bar's mascot – otters beware. Come on Saturday nights for the biggest crowds, who show up especially for the cabaret-style and themed drags shows. If you're lucky, you might run into one of the winners of RuPaul's Drag Race. – Justin Braun
