<p>I absolutely love the energy and environment of Argon. From the first time I visited they made me feel very welcome and appreciated.</p>

<p>I’ll never forget the second night I attended when another patron came in very inebriated trying to continue his party there while trying to touch anyone he could. The bartenders instantly knew not to serve him, the bar back checked on the patrons affected, and management came up and resolved the situation almost instantaneously. What could have been a night killer was only a momentary bump in the road that was quickly/professionally resolved.</p>

<p>The music is bumpin’, the establishment is clean, and the staff genuinely does what they can for every patron to have a great time responsibility/safely.</p>

<p>I can’t wait to be back soon!</p>

<p>My favorite place at the Queen City. Argon is one of the most diverse gay places in North Carolina. From the outside, they have plenty parking spots, also I like the ID inspection and the security protocol..then you pay for the Cover; mostly is $10, for members $5. The music is depending of the Dj. But mostly great atmosphere. Drinks have reasonable prices and is easy to get a drink; the customer service is great. The dance floor is enough, Argon also has a patio area or smoking area. They close at 2:00 a.m. Enjoy your visit at Argon! You won't regret.</p>

<p>Last night was my first time in Argon and the environment and the people were truly amazing I felt so loved and comfortable 💕 I felt like I fit right in the drinks were truly amazing and worth it the only thing was the music I love all music but if they could switch it up a little more it would be perfect 🥰 but this was truly the best place to bring in my birthday 🎂 🥳 🎉 I would definitely recommend Argon as a place to have fun 👍</p>

<p>I see the comments about racism but I have NEVER experienced such a thing here!! Not to degrade anyone’s experience, buuut this place never gave that vibe!!</p>

<p>Every time I’m here I see a mixed crowd of people with EVERYONE having fun together and enjoying EVERY SHADE of person! Are you kidding!! Their are regulars of this place that are EVERY SHADE!!</p>

<p>But they CAN be extremely busy and yea ofc you can mistake a busy bartender (one is usually the owner) for an attitude. But they’re BUSY and don’t want to WASTE time!!</p>

<p>This place is amazing!! If you want a more personal experience than Scorpio’s COME HERE!</p>

<p>Bartenders were great. Club was clean. Drinks were reasonably priced. Music was fire. My only complaint is the sound system was atrocious. I couldn’t understand what anyone was saying on the mic. It sounded like everyone had a mouth full of marbles, yelling across a house of all closed doors.</p>

<p>Found this LGBTQ sports bar when I was looking for a billiards hall. Great spot and Kevin was very friendly. 4 10" pool tables and a small uncovered outdoor seating area. Worth checking out.</p>

<p>My favorite go-to LGBTQ bar! Friendly staff, good ambiance, convenient location, it checks all my boxes. I love that they play 70s, 80s, and 90s music, the sound level and lighting are just perfect. It's so nice to have a consistently enjoyable place to go to, plus the prices are very reasonable. Looking forward to returning.</p>
