This is an awesome club…as long as you’re buying drinks and tipping. I was just there during the music festival and I was there for about an hour and I took a break from drinking was at the dance floor and just put my head down, stare’n at the light patterns on the floor and I was asked to leave because a bartender said I was drunk sleeping….wow so after the bouncer started talking to me he said sorry I have to make u leave but just wait 10 mins and come back okay…..I’m never going there again….how sad

The door people at this establishmen did for me. First impressions are always best. I came into town this weekend with 5 friends ready to open up a tab and drink. We stood in line at Rain and the black biatch that works the door is as nasty as old milk. May i suggest a workout program to lose that belly, maybe not being so miserable? He was rude as hell. Soooo we walked into Oilcans and it was a world difference. Thank you for welcoming everyone.

Caters to the jcrew set. The regulars certainly think it's the best place to go. Its not the place to be if you are not, um how shall we say... fabulous, or at least *think* you are. If you're simply average, and/or not a clone, this place will try hard to make you feel like a troll.

This is the place to go to just relax and hang out with some friends during HH or early on a weekend. The bartenders are all very cool, especially Bobby Cook! If you can make it during the week late-night, definitely get to know the other bartenders working 'cause it will be easier to be seen on those packed weekends if they recognize you. All of the patio staff, regardless of what day, are great. There is also a great mix of people here, from twinks to daddys, drag queens to flaming queens, butch to b*tch.

Oilcans has consistently entertained the metrosexual and gay crowd..newly remodeled under new ownership with New Orleans premier former GM of Oz , Tommy Elias, now bringing the ""good times"" to Oilcan Harry's . The Manwatch dancers featured at Oz also dance their way to Austin to Oilcans Now..Come & enjoy..I do ..ask for Dane..great bartender

I think OCH is the best bar in town. I love this place!!! On Saturday's, I always go to the same bartender on the patio and he makes a great drink. I find the customers friendly and easy to talk to. The layout of the bar makes it easy to mingle and talk with others, with a large enough dance floor to dance all night. Areas, such as the patio, allows you to get away from the music and talk with others in a quieter atmosphere.
I am really surprised that this place has received some negative reviews. I think it is the friendliest gay bar in town with less attitude than most. I think the attractiveness of the clientel scares some people away.

Looks like the new owners have been busy. Nice to see new carpet and most of the floors replaced. And that wood eyesore over the main bar has been removed! And Steve H. is back! Now if the new owners could teach Jorge Manager/Bartender some manners! Guess it can't all be good - but having Steve back helps make up for it!

OCH has improved over the years. They've finally updated the interior. Moved the DJ booth so that it overlooks the dance floor. New paint with a ""Red"" theme. Although the changes are moderate, the flow and feel of the place has definitely improved for the better. The music is more cutting edge; not that tired disco and diva dance music they used to play. I would like to see more weekly theme nights so that it stays competitive.

I was stunned to see the amount of negative reviews of this place, it's amazing. I love the staff, the drinks are strong, the club is always cute. QUIT hating and get in here. Next door to BC, this is the perfect bounce place. Two great bars next door to each other...way cool!
