International nightlife legend Amanda Lepore, Andrew Christian Trophy Boys, and dozens of entertainers from RuPaul's Drag Race have been featured at Sway. Our dance parties and drag productions draw audiences full of creative expression, making for one of the most colorful nightlife experiences in the Bible Belt.
With a central dance floor surrounded by video screens, elevated seating sections, covered outdoor smoking lounge, and stage fit for small and large entertainment productions, Club Sway in Little Rock is a beautiful and versatile venue. We've hosted everything from live theater to wedding receptions in addition to our iconic themed dance parties and drag shows. Behind the scenes, Sway has been the site of music videos, independent movie scenes, commercials and more.
Since opening in 2010, Sway has served minority audiences, primarily from the LGBTQ community. Gay Arkansans have been coming to our downtown location for generations, however. 412 Louisiana Street has been home to the legendary Little Rock gay bars The Factory, and before that, C.O.A.D., an acronym for Coming Out After Dark. We are proud to keep downtown Little Rock queer and provide a safe space not just for gay Arkansans, but gay folks across the American South. We champion diversity, and welcome all who bring love through our doors.
