Among the city’s gay leather bars, this dimly lit establishment—free of the usual blinding lights and techno beats—is perhaps the most laid-back of them all. Muted porn videos play on three out of six TVs, while an older crowd drinks cheap beers (50-cent drafts on Sundays). Don’t fret if your leathers are at the cleaners: Jeans are just as common here as chaps.
