      Hates it

      agreed!
      Place needs an overhaul. Dark and not inviting. Could be a nice place if it was cleaned up a bit and a little paint was used. Torn bar stools not cool. Agree that Brain "Kitty" needs to change attitude. No one can be that unhappy in life.

      best place to chill in Milwaukee!
      Fluid is the bar I missed most when I moved away. The bar staff actively work to welcome people and the crowd is super friendly. This is the Cheers of Milwaukee gay bars. Great for happy hours, great for most late nights.

    • kind of like a double wide
      It's a little dark and trashy... very strong drinks though and very nice bartenders. worth a pop in, but i wouldn't spend a night here.

      previous review by gaynotsofriendly
      Fluid is actually one of the, if not the, least pretentious gay bars in the entire city. From reading gaynotsofriendly's other reviews, it is evident that he's the one who's got the Miss Thang, stuck-up queenie attitude he whines about and it's probably why he didn't like Fluid (cuz no one would put up with his attitude).

    • Not so much
      The crowd is a bunch of wannabe a-holes. There are very few down to earth people in that bar. Ms.Kitty aka Brian can be a bitch of a bartender at times. And the other bartenders have no personality at all period. The owner is aloof and acts like he can only be friendly to people he knows, instead of being friendly and nice to all the people that come in. Plus the owner messed over his ex business partner Steve who was a great asset and personality for that place. So no love at all for that place. It is clean and cozy, but it ends there. Wouldn't recommend that place to anyone.

      My favorite bar
      I have been to Fluid many times, and I have always found it to be a friendly, fun place. It's not a huge bar, but it's clean, the seating is comfortable, and the regulars are really nice. Drag queen bingo is a blast, too! I always feel right at home whenever I am at Fluid, and would definitely recommend it to others.

      Nice place.
      Been there a few times, and have always had a nice time. My comment to the guy that said can get snooty, almost any bar can get snooty, but just be yourself, chat it up with others and you don't have to worry about snooty people!

      Also felt welcomed
      Fluid is very consistant with having their customers feel welcomed, from the owner Bill in addition to all the other bar tenders that I have encountered.

      no bs here
      I checked this place out after a few other bars and the bartender was the nicest guy. Everybody's welcome... at least I felt that way. No attitude. I hate pretentiousness.
