Pretty disgusting...inside and out.

If you like going to a bar that you can get staph infections just by walking through, this is the place for you! It's disgusting, very lowly lit, and the patrons/staff are a much less than intolerable. A lot of s*x out on the two different patios. Also, what's up with the music? It's supposed to be a leather/bear/biker bar, and yet they still constantly play Christina, Madonna, and Fergie???

You can smoke out in the back yard, or if you're not a smoker then there... view more

Austin's only gay biker bar.

This is the only gay biker, leather, bear, cruise bar in Austin but ""typical Joe"" type of men go there as well. Drinks are cheap especially Friday and Saturday all day long with $1.00 domestic beer and well drinks. Cover charge after 9 p.m. Fri-Sat is $3.00 but still worth it with the cheap drinks and lot's of friendly men. The staff is also very friendly and there's always a wide variety of music playing especi... view more

One of the Best

A nice mix of music, pool playing area and courtyards which facilitate talking and making friends.
