Description

If you're looking for the town's highest concentration of frat boys and sorority girls off-campus, swing by Brother's.

Their sign says Est. 1967, but this particular bro has only been here since 2001. Seemingly the savior to an otherwise doomed location downtown (formerly Jersey's, formerly Jester's, formerly Tin Pan Alley, etc.), Brothers absolutely packs it in from 11pm to close Thursday through Saturday. At those times, fifty plus people often stand in line outside just to drink for an hour or so.

At any other time, the spacious bar is a fairly sleepy mix of freshies, yuppies and dinks (double income, no kids). Official motto: "Always the 'Best' Specials, Always the 'Most' Fun!" (sic).

What does "It's Brother's" Really mean? Is this an attempt to sound like a cosey little pub where all are welcome? In fact the opposite is true. ALL are NOT welcome. Lawrence has a reputation for being a loving and accepting community.

This bar gives Lawrence a bad name with it's homophobic staff and patronage. You should be ashamed of yourself for acting as if "you" are somehow higher and mightier than everyone else.

Refusal of service, because someone is gay, should be completely shunned by the entire community. What's next? Gay's get a separate bathroom to use?

I challenge the management of It's Brother's to stand up for what's right. It's one thing to be harassed by the masses, but when the harassment comes from within a community in which we all work, live, and love, that's when something has to be said.

Congratulations, It's Brother's, you are no longer a bar. You are officially a bigoted private club. Keep on alienating your patrons. Soon you will be nothing.

So I can't spell and my grammer sucks, here is my edited version . . .

Damn the rage . . .

"It's Brothers" is a poor excuse for a bar. The bar is filled with sexist homophobics. On more than one occasion my friends and myself have been harassed, refused service at the bar and even pushed. What kind of bar tolerates this behavior, in fact, what city tolerates this behavior? Lawrence prides itself on being diverse and friendly to all of its citizens.

Lawrence prides itself on being a diverse community, so what gives "It's Brothers" the right, why are they condoning this behavior? Any person who hates gay people really needs to reevaluate their own sexuality, their own insecurities, and their own masculinity. If you are so threatened by some gay man or lesbian, then your issues go way deeper. We have rights like anyone else, and since "It's Brothers" is the only place in this town to dance, we will come again and again. We aren't afraid of who we are.

As for the managers/owners of "It's Brothers," I am disappointed that you allow this to happen in your bar. But I can only assume that you share the viewpoint of the majority of your male patrons.

I go every weekend and always have a fabulous time and the drink specials are the best in town. I always take my friends from out of town and they leave jealous that they don't have a Brothers at home.

Easily the biggest dump in Lawrence. I dont like that place and shudder the day I am there.

It seems every time I go there, i'm surrounded by a bunch of annoying frat boys pretending to be tough guys, or basketball players who are attention starved.....

I get an eery feeling about this place. I dont recommend it.
