The Iguana might be one of Hampton Roads' newest gay bars, but it's already making quite a splash in the community. The hotspot is helmed by Patricia Harris, whose drink-slinging prowess earned her the title of 2014's Bartender of the Year by the Norfolk Tourism Research Foundation. Away from the bar, Iguana gives folks a slew of fun-enhancing options. The space includes a dance floor, indoor and outdoor bars, and a patio with pool tables, corn hole, and volleyball. They even overhaul brunch with Brunchbox, their popular Sunday drag show during which people nosh on shrimp omelets and banana pancakes while taking in a show by local queens such as Noelia Bella and Jasmine Devoux Spaulding. The rest of the week, folks can share small plates, custom pizzas, and telepathic conversations.
