Bubby & Sissy's

Just a few blocks from the upscale bars of the State Street neighborhood, Bubby & Sissy's is on a mission to make Alton a wee bit freakier. The tacky-chic watering hole is LGBT friendly and hosts extremely popular drag shows every weekend at JP's Showlounge upstairs. Bubby & Sissy's may be a conservative's nightmare, but the place is overwhelmingly welcoming. Its back patio features a stunning waterfall display and always-burning campfire. The owners serve free dinners to patrons twice a week, and the Christmas lights decking out the bar provide the familiar feeling of throwing back tallboys in your college dorm room. The Glenn Becks of the world are petrified of stepping foot in a place like Bubby & Sissy's - probably because they'd never want to leave.
