I have been coming here off and on for 5 years. The staff is largely unchanged and I love them all. You know they treat their staff well when they stick around. Totally accepting and non judgemental space. The food is amazing and presented like you are in a five star resort. The crowd on the weekdays is like cheers with a lot of regulars. Very easy to get to know people. Excellent, laid back, and rewarding place. Gay or straight, you need to come here. I do not work here and have no affiliation with Barcode. I'm just a loyal and happy patron.

Hometown bar. Quit during the day but always friendly and good drinks.

Music is boring and not that of a bar atmosphere.The drinks are cheap and the food is good.The service sucks and they lack professional training.

The food is always good, the staff is friendly. Sunday night karaoke is always a blast. A great place for the entire LGBTQ community to gather.

round if you're looking for food drinks then you're going to the right place but if you're looking to hook up because you're lonely like I was and you're 27 not the place for you I love my elders but I don't want to date them

Dakota McCormack

Is a gay bar directed at men but a girlfriend and I went and made tons of friends, had amazing drinks, and overall had a great time!! Even though we were the only femme presenting people in the building for the first 2 hours

Alice Wonder

Fun fact: Non alcoholic drinks are not free refills, which no one mentions, and full of ice in 12oz mugs. First place I've ever been to bar or otherwise with this policy.

Kenneth McCreary

This was my first time visiting. I was here on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. and there was a small crowd of less than 12 people or so. The staff was friendly, and I had a good meal. The pulled pork is actually roasted here on premises for over 7 hours. The portions were very large and filling. As I understand it, it starts to get busy late at night, and it is more of a late night venue.

Atech Nickel

Sunday night here is a good start the week, in Richmond you want fun & class topped with a little sexy. GET IN EARLY. 8:30ish.. Have a few drinks before the party starts Party hard, watch the fireworks @ Karaoke later in the evening and have a good time. GREAT Place! Very clean! Friendly! This Is definitely my spot every Sunday night before the week begins! -Sexy Back

Timothy Kelly

A great place to see friends and get out. The staff are friendly and the regulars will welcome you. Happy hour is a great deal.

Ash Harrell

I'm a lesbian from out of town. Googled gay bars near me that had food, just wanting to be in the community. I got here and realized it is a sausage bar, BUT came in anyway and am happy with my decision. The food is on point. A nice stop before my trip back to North Carolina. I would recommend this place.

Ryan Broughton

Tyler Saini

I am always happy to give Barcode my money. They have a great atmosphere and wonderful staff, who are very engaging and energetic as well as professional and courteous. The bar is always clean and tidy and there is always an event, drink special, or friendly face to greet you when you enter. If you are visiting Richmond this is definitely a place you want to be!

Scott Comer

Charles Page

Best place in Richmond for a mixed crowd

Christopher Smither

Second time here. Interesting interaction with the bartender matt. I ordered a mixed drink and paid cash. Nothing special but noticed there was tax added to end up costing $X.34. Really. Now I have 67 cents in my pocket Try calculating drink prices with tax so it comes to an even dollar or half-dollar amount. Post-purchase I’m approached by an off shift bar tender Paige. She says she was asked to talk to me about why I didn’t tip on a cash sale. First, I did tip MATT, the bartender for my drink. This is where things get shady. After explaining to Paige I did tip, I have a couple suggestions. The remainder of the night though, I had to go to another bartender. Matt refused to acknowledge my existence. Ignored me at the drink station. Ignored my empty beer bottle with cash under it (dead give away I’d like another of the same). 5/3 update. After speaking to quite a few locals about Matt, I’ve heard over and over he’s a pretentious prick. He’s worked there for 12 years and thinks he’s untouchable. Until management understands that he is the reason that people like me sit down and write these reviews you’ve just lost a customer base. I have no problem with going to a straight bar or any other establishment just contribute money based on his service alone. I admit, I just moved from San Diego and it’s a different scene. But to be approached about my tipping and then be ignored by one of two bartenders Is not good business practices. Tips are reflective of quality of service, not mandatory. Matt did not engage in any conversation, really didn’t even talk to me. Just stared blankly for me to order, then demand payment. Overall, as one of three gay bars in Richmond, I’d recommend it. Tonight, I had a poor server who did not understand customer service. I hope management sees this and reaches out.

Jasmine Height

Being charged for refills AFTER a refill was given to you without you asking is TRASH. I dont understand the concept. Orders drink + refill given (not asked for)= free Drink + refill (asked for) = extra charge??? Are you as confused as me on this? Being my first time here i did not enjoy myself and i defiantly will NOT be back

Moty Dumas

Went saturday night for the first time. Dont live in Richmond. The drinks and food was great. NICK IS FINE. !!!! Woof Will definitely .make the trip back.

Kevin Dean

I loved going, great drinks however recently they started measuring every drink and honestly the drinks have become unsatisfactory. The bartenders are great but have to stick to their new policy.

Lavell Johnson

I've always felt welcome and I love the staffing and people who comes here.

Taylor SaintTheos

A fun and friendly gay bar/restaurant. It had waves of people come and go on a Thursday night. The bartenders were really friendly. People at the bar were friendly and the food was really good. I had crab cakes spinach and cole slaw, then a dish of wings. All very delicious. It was $5 martini night and the 3 different ones I had were very good.

Jerry N.

Went for the first time today and had a good time. The bartender was great - I didn't get his name but he had long hair and nail polish. The food was great and the crowd was friendly.

Food is always great.

Michael Mock

Visiting from out of town and did a Google search for nearby places. Patrons were friendly. Bartender seemed disinterested as he couldn't even say hello as he stood in front of me to take my drink order. It would ha e been nice to try some food but a menu was not offered. I noticed it was offered to others. Not sure what the issue was but reading other reviews it seems this is normal for the bartenders. Too bad it seems like it could be a good place.

Jim Sweet

I'm a visitor to Richmond from San Francisco and I really don't go out to gay bars. Having said that,I found Barcode to be a lot of fun. I went on a Sunday, karaoke night, had the chicken quesadillas and really wasn't expecting much. The food was good and the crowd was friendly and mixed. Men, women, older, younger... I didn't have any problem striking up conversations or feel my age (I'll be 67 come June) made any difference. I had a good time. To the young man who "Respects his elders but wouldn't want to date one" Oh you young puppytwink... you are ageing with each character you punch in to your smart phone. I just hope you age well & find someone to put up with you and your ageist 'tude sweetie!

Great place to unwind and meet people. Great food. Some waiters lack customer service skills.

Gregory Morrison

I am relatively new to Richmond (2yrs) and have grown to weary of the behaviors normally associated to the gay scene. This bar and it's staff exede my expectations in the quality, service , diversity and acceptance. I love the barcode!

Strong drinks for good price, good service but not so good food and the clientele is middle to old age.
