The longevity of Scandals Nightclub is almost unheard of in this type of business, with over 30 years of service to the Asheville community.

Scandals has made an indelible mark on Asheville's dance party community, in an industry where longevity is an exceptional feat! For years Mountain Xpress readers have voted Scandals Night club "Best Place to Dance", "Best Drag Show", and "Best Gay Bar". Proudly serving the LGBT communities for which Asheville is home, Scandals Nightclub is known throughout as an epicenter for creativity, diversity, and entertainment. We have provided a palate for open expression and recognition for one and all consistently for decades and will do so for many years to come. Premiering the BEST drag shows, and drag entertainers to be held anywhere in Asheville, and arguably, around the country, Scandals Nightclub is home to a provocative circuit of talent and creativity. We've maintained the honor within Asheville of playing host to a vast number of titled performers from the local and national pageantry systems as well as fully featured mind blowing Broadway styles productions. Scandals Nightclub may be divided to be its own separate venue, or combined with Club Eleven on Grove and/or the BOILER ROOM, depending on the size of the event.
