Huge ups for the place that calls itself an “eccentric little gay bar in Plaza-Midwood” and sponsors the Charlotte Royals, the Queen City’s gay rugby team. (Gay rugby: who knew?) Open every night, DAKS features billiards, energetic music, drink specials and arcade-style games. “Hot videos” and cozy recesses let you get up close and steamy with your favorite guy. Specials change daily and include $6 all-you-can-drink Bud Light drafts, free pool until 10pm, and talent showcases hosted by the fine entertainers Brandy Alexander, Serena Mitchell and Sierra Santana.
