Gutted! Out for a birthday evening and because 4 of us........ all 35 plus didn't carry ID got refused entry (I mean who carries ID at this age). No doubt my friend had a lovely evening, just found it... totally ridiculous. Oh well will spend my cash elsewhere in future! Can just imagine the money you lose with this policy! As I said before ridiculous! See More

Absolutely shocking.. turn up to go with some friends (one happens to be a FAMOUS drag queen) only to be told after years that it's a "members only" club. Utter Rubbish. Because a lady in drag doesn't... have any id (who does?) This meant that we were not able to go in to my horror and dismay as a Sheffielder. I will not spend another night in there let alone money. I know it's usually classed as a 'Shithole' that everyone laughs about but no one was laughing last night, which means it's now just a Shithole. See More

Dempseys is a what you see is what you get kind of venue. I use Dempseys very regularly and honestly have to say. never felt safer anywhere else. I think that this place deserves more than 5 stars bec...ause you know, no matter who you are or where you come from as long as you are respectful you are more than welcome here. I have been using this Venue months and can honestly say the management have the place running super smoothly. See More

The club it’s self is ok however when my friend and I visited the door staff where absolutely disgusting! Very rude and obnoxious to the point of being bullies . Whoever would have thought that you co...uld be forcibly removed from a club for simply reporting that the ladies toilets were out of order ? As extreme as that sounds you just could not make it up if you tried ! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME THERE. See More

Great venue, very friendly staff and it's open until late. The music is varied, suits everyone and sensible prices for drinks.

Dempseys is a great place, over the last three years I have thoroughly enjoyed and embraced the atmosphere and the people that turn up on every occasion. I am disheartened at the fact that the last fe...w visits have catered to a few narrow minded people who have made the environment one that is hostile and uncomfortable. Although the attitudes of certain customers is out of the staff's control, it is surprising that there is little done to manage numbers and those that seem to cross boundaries; unwanted straight attention and groping and people shoving and ignoring common courtesy. I feel as though with a bit more care and attention to these matters the club would benefit our community greatly x See More

What an absolute disgrace to the LGBT community!!!! Me and my partner walked here for a drink and was told we wasn't allowed in after aggressively being told "You do know this is a gay bar?". They wan...ted I.D and said it's members only when we only wanted to come in for 1 drink before we headed home. I have worked and drank in gay bars for years and never had as bad and as unwelcoming experience as this. Avoid at all costs! See More

What a fabulous little place. Today marks a year to the day we visited. As non homosexual men, myself and my friend lee Houghton were made most welcome. We chose the downstairs room as our place to pa...rty as the upstairs room we felt like we were extras on an episode of bad girls with all the cages. The DJ downstairs was a lovely chap, and we really loved the idea of the campervan DJ box. Downstairs was karaoke which we thoroughly enjoyed. We decided to treat the regulars to a topless rendition on what makes you beautiful by one direction which was very well received. Returning to Dempseys before I pop my clogs is definately on the bucket list. Until next time, over and out. See More

I've been a member there with my girlfriend for a few years now but following an incident last Saturday night I will not be setting foot in the place again.....I was sat on my own, just chilling out w...hen an attention seeking little prick jumped on the table and started dancing, I asked him to get down so he decided to complain to the door staff and accuse me of being 'homophobic'......I am in no way, shape or form 'homophobic' and i'm totally disgusted at being labeled it, but was asked to leave, so I did and won't be going back in.

Not worthy of 1 star. Bouncer pushed my sister all the way down stairs and happily admitted to it as we have video proof, she had to go to a&e and is unable to work due to her injuries from the fall. ...This is because she picked her friends handbag up while she was dancing and he accused her of stealing it and pushed her down stairs when she and her friends tried to explain. She has posted on this page and they have removed the post. Absolutely disgusting. See More

I came here Friday night to celebrate my best friends 30th birthday. He and his boyfriend had flown over from Malta for the weekend and having being to this bar for years, it was our first choice. How...ever when I noticed my friend who was dancing in the cage had left her bag on the floor next to it surrounded by people, I thought I did the right thing by picking it up to look after it for her. Somebody saw me do this and went to grab a bouncer and accuse me of stealing it. Which fair enough any body could think that, but when this person and the bouncer wouldn't even listen to me or my friend explain, it is unacceptable! As we were having an amazing night before this, I obviously did not want to leave, and this was no reason to ask me to.
So I still cannot believe the fact that then this bouncer PUSHED ME down the stairs! He then proceeded to be an absolute vile and abusive human being to me outside. I have on video him admitting when people won't move he will push them, and that he 'doesn't give a fuck with girls like me'.
Funnily enough this is far from the first review on here about the aggressive door staff. Two years ago my sister got pushed to the floor by one and called a 'dyke'. Totally unacceptable language for any bar, let alone a gay bar!
Thank you, I lost what could have been an amazing weekend for my friends birthday by spending it in bed and A&E; and having to take this week off work. Looking forward to your response.

I came from far away for a night out and they did not let me get in because I was without. I was well presented and had the intention to a drink with a dear friend who lives here. Unfortunately the se...curity missed an opportunity to host 2 secret mystery shoppers who work for GT magazine and you failed bad, very bad. We strongly do not recommend this place for the LGBT community. See More
