  • Went there over Pride weekend, it wasn't that great. Had a better time at the Eagle- was actually able to do more than just grope- some hot action in the front room corner.

  • His name is Charlie.. he is a little hard to get to know, just flirt with him a little. There is a long dark haired Russian dude there.. he's bi, you just have to make your presence known to him. Take a bi-bud... go to the back, order a hooka and just hang out. It will happen, I cant wait to get back to NYC and swing by this place.

    Are you from DFW area? I was in the apartment literally directly over top of the bar...

    the other thing too is that if you are bi... you might want to loosen up a little when you go in so you give a little 'vibe' for their Gay-Dar!! I did.. and it worked. How awesome is that bathroom downstairs??? damn... perhaps i'll run into you next time i'm there.

  • OK, I have been to this place 6 times now. It is around the corner from my apartment so I thought I would check it out. It is a nice bar BUT the attitude is horrible there. I am not a greek god or anything but I am an attractive guy. Almost everytime I have gone in, I cannot even get the bartender to come over to serve me a drink. It is not like they are slammed. Each and every time I have been in, I have yet to have a bartender say hello. They just walk up and stare at you until you order. They tell you the price and then walk back off. One of the bartenders is obviously gay. He is the rudest of the group. He sits back and watches everyone in the place and makes fun of them with his friends. I have seen him do this on several occasions. Just because he is not talking about me does not mean that it makes for a comfortable enviroment. He is not hot, he is rude, and he talks about his own customers. As far as cruising... This place is not cruisy. It is a mainly straight (other than that annoying bartender) neighborhood bar. They have good Sangria but if you are going to make new friends, have a sociable time, or cruise, your time is better spent elsewhere. If that bartender I mentioned actually reads this, you need to be nicer and drop the attitude. It makes you look bitter and is not attractive. I have never given a place a bad comment like this but it would be nice to have a staff be a little friendly and not act like they are better than the people paying their bills...

  • This place is fun.. its very low key.. not a "gay bar" per se, but very gay freindly and frequented by some HOT russians.. the Bartender is a hottie as well... did "bump" into a little hottie and had some fun in the bathroom.
