Venue type: Bar, Club
Between exposed brick walls sits a wood stained bar, under polished copper with incandescent globes
illuminating hardwood tables and a fire place where groups and couples enjoy drinks and delicious food..
Hidden out the back a sheltered court yard scattered with repurposed hardwood tables and recycled
planter boxes containing lush foliage.
A bar of quality ingredients, food and booze accompanied by music ranging from hip and
party jams to various styles of electronic.
For friends and lovers alike, in the common cause that is a local watering hole.
Nestled amongst the various restaurants and clubs, Diva is probably the best night out on Commercial Road. Its best night is Saturday, where you can hear the latest dance, as well as fine tunes from the 70s and 80s. It can get rather cramped, especially near the bar area, but it has an upstairs balcony that is comfortable for dancing.
The majority of the crowd is gay, bisexual, or lesbian, but straight people are definitely welcome, as the atmosphere is very friendly. It has a very relaxed and liberated atmosphere, which can be enjoyed by anyone with an open mind. It is much better and more fun than Xchange or Market.
Drag queens also perform numbers, and you can see entertaining impersinations of Kylie Minogue, Cher, Dolly Parton, Madonna, Christina Aguilera etc.
Diva is recommended for fans of 70s and 80s music, and also for people who want to have a fun, carefree night.
