  • Another Fruit Loop bar with no distinct personality
    There's so little special about this bar that I can copy-and-paste most of my review of Freezeone: You won't find anything to be excited about here. Bartenders are skilled and friendly, beer and liquor selection is good. Prices are reasonable, happy hour is a good value. Pleasant enough hangout if you're passing through. Sadly there's no special style, no theme, no unique charisma. Just a nice hole in the wall bar for an assortment of gay men. PLEASE, LAS VEGAS GAY BARS, GET THEMES, GET UNIQUE STYLE, GET DECOR, GET AN IDENTITY, HELL, GET A GIMMICK! Being gay friendly just isn't enough in 2017, gays can go to any damn bar they please so now every bar in town is your competition. With a name like Quadz the staff should be muscular and wearing gogo shorts to show off their well-shaped quads. Seriously, that never dawned on you? Las Vegas, make your gay bars stand out somehow.

  • Meh. Mostly lesbians. Low key and kinda bland.
    Unless you're a 20-something lesbian you won't find anything to be excited about here. Bartenders are skilled and friendly, beer and liquor selection is good. Prices are reasonable, happy hour is a good value. Pleasant enough hangout if you're passing through. Sadly there's no special style, no theme, no unique charisma. Just a nice hole in the wall de facto lesbian bar.

  • Twink bar riding the coattails of its well-known name
    No longer leather and Levis. No longer even macho. The number of pictures of women and drag queens in their GayCities photo album tells you all you need to know. This is no place for rough 'n' tough guys. There used to be a day when Eagle meant "masculine" but that day is long gone. Now that I've cleared that up, The Eagle is kind of average as neighborhood twink bars go. Same tedious gay dance music as everywhere else. Same mediocre unwanted drag shows as everywhere else. Same underwear nights where too few guys show up in underwear like everywhere else. Same unskilled bartenders as everywhere else.

  • Nice place to hang out a while, but not a destination
    Badlands is a good bar to meet friends for a drink before you all head out to, say, First Friday. Or to wind down before heading home after a movie. It's just not the kind of place I'd hear anyone say "I came here to hang out all night". Badlands staff are friendly and have solid bartending skills. They have a good assortment of bottled beers you might miss because they're on a shelf off to the side. Customers are low-key and friendly but not really outgoing. There's bar stools if you're solo and a few booths if you're with friends. I went on Latin Night but there were no Hispanic guys to be found. Badlands is a nice enough bar to hang out for a while, maybe chat with strangers a bit, then be on your way.

  • Clean, wholesome garage themed bar for gays who would NEVER change their oil themselves
    The Garage is clean, well lit, loud with conversation, and full of squeaky clean under-30 gay men, their straight girl friends, and lady boys. Most of them have their eyes glued to their iPhones or are in a booth with their BFF's so there's absolutely no interaction with solo customers. Lots of giggling, pointing and waving, and grand gesturing. I had no idea an auto garage could be so flaming. Bartenders are competent and prices are reasonable. This is absolutely NOT the place to come dressed as a macho auto mechanic from a 1980's COLT Studios video.

  • The last bar in town that can be called "leather", just barely
    Sadly, there are no leather bars in Vegas. The Eagle went twink a few years ago, and Fun Hog Ranch (or Funhog Ranch if you read the outdoor sign) has leather events maybe once a month and even then they're sponsored by Las Vegas boys of Leather (lower case intentional to show subservience to those who give a damn about such minutia). But it's still a little seedy, a little shabby, a little sleazy in a city obsessed with glitz and glam. The neighborhood was voted Best Block to Get Your Wallet Lifted By A Crackhead. It's also a great bar for professional alcoholics, the bartenders hand out 2-for-1 drink cards faster than hookers on The Strip hand out business cards. Some of the bartenders are good and know classic drink recipes, others will ice your drink no matter how many time you shout "Neat. Neat! NEAT!" So if you want to revisit 1979 but with iPhones, visit the Fun Hog Ranch.
