The oldest gay bar in Charleston has many stories to tell since its opening in 1984. Dudley's On Ann has the goal of being "Charleston's 'Everybody' Bar," which it has accomplished through its unique mixture of patrons.
With events like karaoke nights, "living room" drag shows, and weekends full of dancing, Dudley's is the place to be for a fun night out with friends. A consistent schedule of events are always in place at Dudley's to give you an option for every night of the week. Happy Hour is available on Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 pm with drink specials on cocktails, beers, and pitchers. Every Sunday is also filled up with the event known as "Four Queens & A Full House," a drag show hosted by Kymmya Star at 11pm. Wanting to see more new talent at the drag show? Mondays at 10pm is "Heel in the Door Mondays" where non-cast members get to be a part of a drag show on the Dudley's stage. Every Tuesday at 10pm is "Bingo Bitch!," and every Wednesday at 10pm is karaoke night hosted by PBR. More drag shows fill up the schedule on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Check out this video to see a short clip of drag queen Brooke Collins' performance at Dudley's on Ann:
At Dudley's, jello shots are always available at all times for only $2. Once you arrive, you'll want to keep the party going with more classic cocktails from the bar. With five different signature cocktails and five different Moscow mules to choose from, you'll definitely find a drink you'll enjoy at the bar. From the Rumdinger to the Ginger Grab, the Charleston Breeze to Patti's Punch, each cocktail packs a punch with flavors.
