Smooth-chested twinks and their admirers need not apply—this bar stands out as a prowling ground for old-guard leathermen and bears. The air is thick with testosterone and the back room shows porn on the weekends. The rest of the week the vibe is mellow, with nightly drink specials and, depending on the bartender, iPod tunes ranging from country to indie rock.
