      Always a good time!
      A friendly (great bartenders) place where one will always feel welcome. Local clubs and organizations hold events there on weekends so always something fun to do. Very fair drink prices. Leather and levi crowd, all ages. 24/7 bar, late night bring out the adventure-seekers, especially in the Eagle (upstairs).

      Oh Baby!
      Refreshing idea not to have to take someone home if you don't want to... Oh the wonderful times I've had there during carnival. I have a HUGE crush on daddy Don. Marry me!

      One of My All-Time FAVS with FUN Times to br Had
      Once I've finished watching, feeling and tipping the cocks at the Corner Pocket, I head over here and go upstairs for the real fun. Other than Touche in Chicago, this is my favorite bar in the the U.S. No pretense, just a "cock in your face" atmosphere that ensures a perfect party (after all, it's not a party until everyone CUMS, right?!?).

      one of the best places to visit
      I didn't get to spend as much time here as some of the other bars in the city which will bring me to my first and only negative comment. This bar is a bit off the beaten path if your staying near Bourbon St. Catching a cab there was pretty simple after Mardi Gras was over but during Mardi Gras with the crowds you would want to wait until later which by than you've already gotten settled into other bars. Now with that said if the biggest complaint I had was getting there you should know I loved this place when we finally made it. Super friendly staff and patrons. Cheap but very strong drinks. The upstairs bar is where all the action happens and believe me action happens. From a guy seated next to me at the bar naked who politely reached around to "welcome" me to new orleans to all the other patrons behind the little walls that divide the space between bar and play area. Sadly we only had one night here but when we come back to New Orleans this will be are go too bar.

      The bar was full of overweight nasty guys that all must have smoked because there was no ventilation. Upstairs when I went to check a message I was told by the bartender that cell phone usage was not allowed. What a disappointment. Don't waste your time unless you need poppers or leather. The leather shop is open until 2am. The rest of the bar is useless.

      Not everything happens on Bourbon St.
      The best part about this bar is the bar/darkroom upstairs. With the lights low and SO MANY guys crammed together, you're bound to have a "good time". It does get very hot and you're going to sweat, but that's part of the fun. Great strippers (porn stars!) and the shop downstairs sells everything a pig needs to make the most of the night. Friendly crowd and great block party during Southern Decadence.

      Great time
      Had a great time in the Eagle upstairs last Saturday night. Dark and close. Found myself naked and surrounded with hands and tongues in all the right places. Limits were respected. Nice guys. Very erotic.

      blue collar men open to fun
      Love this place. Upstairs is more private with bar and gay porn and intimate moments with 1 or more as needed. Sex shop is best in town for leather wear undies lubes and bondage needs. This flex loves leather. Ty Sir

      Went a few times during Decadence and it was hit or miss, but for the most part I had a great time. This bar definitely appeals to the more leather/butch crowd. Downstairs seems to be the more general crowd, upstairs is where the men and the action are. Won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I had some great times in the Eagle upstairs. A cab ride away. Worth checking out at least once, especially during Decadence.

      Wont be going Back
      The bartenter upstairs must hate his life. He was a total jerk. I went upstairs and they have a small sign no cologne. Well i was wearing cologne and he asked me if i could read. Told me to get downstairs. I wont be going back. The guys downstairs were very friendly and nice. But you dont treat paying customers that way. Thats the only gay bar i have had a problem with. Maybe they should get rid of him.

      Thought it would be more
      I tried this bar on 4 different occasions, once during decadance, once on mardi gras, and just normal times. All of my visits led to disappointments. Good and Bad.. Bad first...Each visit there was always a smell like someone dumped poppers in the ventilation. The bartenders, though nice, were nothing to write home about which would be okay except for the fact that they were all will some age and insisted on being shirtless. The crowd is varied. The "regulars" are mainly trolls, but there are the occasional hotties. Now the good. Everyone is willing to talk to you or more if you want that. The drinks were strong. and the dancers have always been very good looking. Like the concept, but not my type of crowd.
