    The bartenders do a great job. I'm partial to Big Daddy brew and they always poor with a smile. Great group to chat with but keep in mind most are men on a mission! Have fun!

    There are no toilets in the bathroom, just one long trough with a mirror behind it. If you don’t want your business on display, ask the bartender for the key to the single-use toilet. Read more

    "For the bear or daddy type, no one else" ... I think that's an over-generalization. I've been here many times and I actually find the vibe fun, relaxed, & accepting. Don't be scared, it's a blast.

    One of our favorite bear/daaddy bars on the planet. If you're not a bear, it's a fun place to come chill and be man handled.

    Guy at the bar in the very back always expects a tip. Even for water.

    Cut the scene bullshit and get to the bar where the drinks are cold, the men are hot, and if you're lucky, both are strong.

    Great bar if you're looking for a masculine crowd. Lately there has been more "attitude" at this bar, but I still love it. Read more

    If you're drinking beer, get it at the front bar.... It's never quite cold enough from the back bar.

    It's loud and raucous, so if you're into that you should be able to have to a good time.

    You know that scene in Selena where that poor Mexican woman gets crushed up against that chain-link fence at the crowded concert? That's how I feel here. I'm that poor Mexican woman.

    Even though they'll tell you the place closes at 2, you'll be kicked out at 1.50 and not allowed to finish your drink. It's pretty pathetic.
