Club One defines itself as the premier gay bar in a town priding itself on a level of decadence that falls somewhere between New Orleans' and Key West's, and it's the hottest and most amusing spot in town. Patrons include lesbians and gays from the coastal islands, visiting urbanites, and cast and crew of whatever film is being shot in Savannah at the time (Demi Moore and Bruce Willis are two stars who have showed up here). There's also likely to be a healthy helping of voyeurs who've read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
You pay your cover at the door, showing ID if the attendant asks for it. Wander through the street-level dance bar, trek down to the basement-level video bar for a (less noisy) change of venue, and (if your timing is right) climb one floor above street level for a view of the drag shows. There, a bevy of artistes lip-sync the hits of Tina Turner, Gladys Knight, and Bette Midler. The bar is open daily 5pm to 3am. Shows are nightly at 10:30pm and 12:30am.
