It’s hard for some people to believe that Fresno actually had a semi-passable nightlife albeit many many years ago. There was the Express, then Deja Vu, and on Friday nights you could bounce back and forth between The Circle and the first 18+ gay establishment Bam Bam’s. Much later came Legends.
Today, since Legends will not reopening and is up for sale last I heard, we are left with the sad little engine that couldn’t FAB. They only play house music because it seems the ownership team cannot get out of the 70’s San Francisco scene. They charge cover, even during a pandemic, and who the hell is going to pay cover in Fresno? Lol. Anyway, I said all that to say this: I simply cannot wait for things to turn around and to see what Splash can do in and for a local gay community that desperately needs it. Not only will we be famished from suffering through a pandemic but we will be long over due for a fun place to dance, hang out, and get some decently priced drinks.
It’s still a ways off I’m sure but if and when Splash does actually open their doors in the Tower District: I simply cannot wait.
