    Great Dive Bar, friendly people.
    The people here were so friendly that I wish I had found this bar on my first night of my 3 night stay. I went twice and each time everyone talked with me. The bartenders were friendly and attentive, drink prices are great. The patio is cruisy which is always a plus. While most of the men are 38 plus, there were a handful of us younger guys scattered about. While the building is old it is still comfortable. Jukebox selection is good. I will go back next time I am in town.

    Not too bad for Tulsa
    I went here twice, once on Friday at about 8pm. Tulsa, I have found, is a late city, there were only a handful of people inside. The drinks are inexpensive and the staff friendly but not overly friendly. The patrons of the bar stared ALOT, which I kind of like, but no one was friendly enough or brave enough to speak to me, just stare. Until I was leaving and then one guy got up the nerve to say "you leaving? You're hot." The next time I went was again on Friday about 11pm and the bar was packed. The crowd was mixed but definitly dominated by bears. Which is cool becuae that's the type of bar it is. Still, the patrons were stand offish and just stared. I'm a talker so it wasn't long before I engaged others in conversation though. The bar itself is relatively small, small dance floor, dimly lit, but still comfortable. Not bad for a visit but I was hoping it would be more cruisey for an Eagle.

    Really surprised.
    I went on a Tuesday for Karaoke and there were probably 70 plus people in. Friendly clientele, a handful of cute guys and men and women of all ages. Not as cruisey as I like but all in all it was a fun night with inexpensive drinks and good people.

    Drinks are cheap, that's about it.
    There are only two clubs in Augusta as of now, so if you have to go to one this would be it. The other don't bother. I was visiting for three days on a weekend and was told this was a high energy dance club. Uummm, yeah, not so much. It is actually two bars, downstairs they play dance music, charge a cover most nights and no one is there. Upstairs is more like a dive bar and there is no cover on weeknights but they expect you to pay $6 on Friday and Saturday, I'm not sure why. The bar doesn't open until 8pm and got decently busy around 10:30 everynight. The drinks are cheap and good but the bartenders lack the attention to get them to you quickly so you may have to wait for 5 or more minutes. The crowd is diverse with all ages and types. The building is old and small but does the job. Other than the cover and slow bartenders, i would say it's worth checking out. Cruisy level was ok on the weekends. I didn't find out until I was leaving that about 25 miles away across the stae line in Aiken SC, there is a gay bar called Marlboro Station that I am told is really good but I did not get to check it out. The other bar in Augusta called The filling Station, well, just skip it, just FYI.

    Skip it...
    This club is only open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8pm til 2am and for good reason. I was there each night, the only clientele comes from the gay hotel next door (see my review on it) called the Parliment house. Well, actually, the clientele comes from the campground behind the hotel. Each night the only people inside was the 12 or so guys that live or visit the campground. All over 50, which is fine, but they aren't really bears, more like retirees. They stay for a couple of drinks and then leave. They all live beside each other so they tend to sit together and the then the bar is empty for the rest of the night. The bar itself is very, very small, having been a converted two bay garage. It is one small room with the bar along one wall, so there are no cubby holes or dark corners. You have to go outside and around the corner as the bathrooms are located outside, like they always use to be on old gas stations. There is a nice big patio out back. The drinks are cheap but weak. The bartender is extra friendly and attentive. That is abou the only good thing I can say about this place.

    Scary...and not in a good way.
    Having stayed at cruisy gay hotels like Parliment House Orlando, The Flamingo in St. Petes, Habana Inn in Oklahoma City and even the Cheshire in Atlanta, I had high hopes for this place. The rooms are reasonably priced and though dated they are clean. I got really excited when I found out there was a building with a maze, steamroom, porn room, private booths, orgy rooms and tons of glory holes. There is even a building known as the pig pen with slings and a watersports room. But sadly, that is where the good part of my review ends. There is a campground behind and woned by the hotel, apparently people live there year round and that is the majority of the clientele. I was there three nights on what was supposedly a "good" weekend but all I saw was men over 50, noi in good shape and not in the least bit attractive, and it was the same men everynight. There is a huge fence up around the place and a private gate, the public has to pay to get in if they are not staying there and I think that is the biggest drawback. At the other gay resort hotels, the public was allowed to walk in and cruise which brought guys of all ages, shapes and sizes in on a constant basis, especially "straight" guys who did not want to be seen any more than possible. Here you have to go into the office, fill out paperwork and pay $10 to cruise. The building with the maze and orgy room is so dark that you literally can not see what is in front of you. I actually ran into guys and walls. There is zero light. I am not sure how anyone could have sex in that place. It was creepy, not cool and there was almost zero heat. There is a bar next door owned by the hotel but sadly, it to was only occupied by the same 12 guys that live/or visit the campground behind the hotel. So I went to the other gay bar in town, met a hot bi guy in town for the night, tried to bring him back to my hotel room at the Parliment and guess what? They would not let him come back to my room unless he paid a $10 membership and filled out paperwork to get into the grounds.My entire stay there I saw maybe 15 people at once on the weekend nights, but it was the same people as the other nights, usually there is just one or two guys wondering the grounds. Sad to say this place has potential but don't waste your money.

    I was here on a Friday night, after 10pm, what is advertised as a hard core leather bar is actually older, overweight men, who sometimes come out in leather, but mostly are just in jeans and t-shirts. Don;t get me wrong, nothing wrong with this type, it's just that no one there was the least bit masculine, as a matter of fact, they were all down right feminine. The bar has a lot of nooks and crannies and is spread out pretty good, but there was no cruising going on while I was there and only about 12 people. The drink prices are expensive, but hey, welcome to Atlanta. I say skip it.

    People here all seem to know each other and no one really talked to strangers, except for the really hot door guy who tried to pick me up. It was a Saturday night and the crowd didn't start coming in until almost 10pm. By 11:30 it was pretty packed. Drink prices are reasonable but again, just a so so, hum drum kind of vibe.

    Best bathouse i have been to in my travels.
    I travel all over the US for my job and always make it a point to see if there is a bathhouse in whatever city I am in. This was probably my fifth time visiting Flex and I always have a good time. The same hot guys you see out at the bars in Atlanta who pretend they are too good to talk to anyone, are here and sucking cock. And ofcourse, there are a lot of travelers from out of town. I always leave happy, multiple times. Usually best to go after 8pm but I have been on both weekdays and weekends and it seems to always have a good crowd flowing in and out.

    Worth it...
    While it wasn't too crowded when I went, on a Friday at midnight till about 1:30 am, there was a total of about 20 guys in and out. The price was reasonable and there are plenty of private rooms with locks and beds and various furnishings, tons of glory holes, good porn playing and a maze to cruise in. It's pretty dark and there are computers with wifi to use and a smoking lounge. I like this place because, unlike bathhouses, if you are looking for something quick, you can go in without taking your clothes off, get off and leave.

    Good bar...
    The staff was very friendly to a newcomer. The bartender bought me shots and the coat check guy kept me company as one guy after another flirted with me.I went three times during my stay and it was always a late crowd, after 10:30pm. I did not see any crusising going on in the back hallway, sad to say, as I was looking for it. There is a cover at 10pm on the weekends and the bar is closed Sundays. Worth checking out for sure, not as pretentious a clientele as other Atlanta bars and it's close to the sex clubs on Faulkner.

    Tight,, cramped, surrounded by pretentious queens trying to get a glimpse of really bad drag queens. Drinks are strong but pricey, like all of Atlanta.

    You will find my original review below, I have been to this bar 3 more times since my last review, and it gets worse everytime. Horribly, unfriendly staff, smae clientele everytime, and just nothing special. The drinks are pricey in comparsion to the other bars in the area. Skip it. Disinterested bar tenders. clickish crowd, $4 for a warm draft beer that was stale, I couldn't finish that nasty beer fast enough to get out of there. They play one country song then one pop song. Not going back!

    Yes! Yes! Yes!
    I have traveled all across the country for work and try to stop in as many gay bars as possible and give an honest (and sometimes harsh) opinion. But I have to say, this place is so far, the best bar I have been to. While I'm not Nebraskas biggest fan, other bars in the counrty could learn something from the Max. It has a lounge feel in one part, with the most comfortable, upholstered, high backed barstools I have ever seen in a gay bar, then there is an awesome dance floor and (on a Wednesday) the DJ was playing some great mixes, not just all the crap you hear on the radio, but actually good music from the past mixed in with today's top 40's. The outside patio is large and beautifully landscaped complete with a fountain. There were two other parts to the bar that were not open tonight, one part called the disco. The bartender, named Hugh, was probably the most welcoming bartender I have ever met. The clientele was literally all ages. You had a few preteintious queens but that's anywhere you go, for the most part, people were extremely nice considering I was a stranger. There was an upstairs area to get away from everything...this was a great experience for me and has somewhat renewed my faith in gay bars! Very upscale, trendy but without the attitude...

    Really? gGay strippers who try to pretend they are st8 because they can use that as an excuse not to do anything with the nasty, old men there, which is the only clientele there, besides the occasional desperate queen. What I found really funny, is that the strippers would try to have a fake accent and pretend that they were from Switzerland or somewhere, it was priceless. That and all the drugs floating around was pretty scary. I gave it three tries and it was more pathetic each time...i travel all over the country and strip bars always are the worst...

    Where to begin about this place...
    Ok, first, the only good thing about this bar is the building itself, multi level, great seperated spaces, well decorated...now charge to get into this great space (a cover charge? to give you my money? to buy your drinks?)Hire the worst, unfriendliest door people and bartenders you can find. Make sure they don't know how to mix drinks and jack the price up three times. Then,just to make it better (worse) advertise to the most undesirable, bulimic twinks you can find. But they have a huge dance floor, right? Sure do, and the so called DJ plays the most generic premixed cds he could get off the internet...really? REALLY? Three times while I was in Dallas I was convinced to go here and three times I thought, what a waste of what could have been a great bar...

    I don;t live in Dallas and travel all over, I was warned about this place ahead of time, but most times, if someone tells me I won't like a place, I wind up loving it...gave this place a chance twice, never again. Not an "all ages" or "slighty older crowd" but a so old you should not be out of the nursing home crowd. That's cool though, it's their bar, but don;t be misleading in your post. The drink prices are just like all the others in Dallas, overpriced, both times, I left before I even finished my drink, and I never leave a drink...

    This is the 3rd JR's I have been to on my travels, and they kept true to keeping them all the same, which is bad, because I could swear I'm at TGIFridays, I'm suprised the bartenders aren't wearing any flair. The crowd was that type of crowd that wanted to be at "the place to be" so funny to watch their make up run as they had to go outside on the upstairs patio to smoke in the Dallas heat. There are always a few nice, normal people mixed in, but all in all, this is one of those cookie cutter bars you can just pass on by and go to a real gay bar down the street. Nothing special here...

For some reason Dallas is one of those places that think they can overcharge for drinks. Now the main reason I went here is because I heard it was a great cruising place, and yes it is. I'm 29yo, and met guys here from 22yo to 40yo (even though there are older than that here) Sundays are busiest, but while I was in Dallas, I went maybe 15 times or more.

That is just stupid. And the drinks are WAY over price. They hire bartenders that pretend to be str8. The strippers will let you touch and see for money, but you know strippers never put out (for free) But I always find a really hot guy (or three) to bring back to my room so i can;t really complain can I?

    I am only 29yo and travel for work all across the country, every older bar I go to people always tell me :you should have been here in the 70's and 80's anything went" well nothing has changed at Hanks! (including the decor) This is the hands down funnest bar I have ever been to! Outside is a sign that reads "this is a gay bar, if homosexuality offends you then you should drink elsewhere) They only serve beer (and wine I think) but everyone is friendly, overly friendly. There are two bathrooms, one for massive orgy sex and a private one for actually using the bathroom. Awesome patio that is large with a lot of hidden places to get a blow job or fuck around. I never left unhappy! I was nervous cause some of the reviews said it was all old guys, and 98% is, but each time I went there were atleast 10 guys 20 to 30 including myslef, and there was always that occasional really hot, supposed str8 guy that came in around 5 or 6 after work for a quick blow job.

You still get your undesirables, but that's all bars, and was really expecting more out of underwear night other than six old guys sitting around in underwear that is two sizes too small, maybe if the bar would give a better deal to get in your underwear (.50cents off a drink?) more people would participate.

    Loves it

    Fimally a good Tampa bar...
    After my month long stay in Trampa, and hittin most of the other bars and not being impressed, I adopted this bar and wish i had found it sooner, I went here about 12 times before leaving town. The bar is nice, really nice, great decor, two bars, lots of seating around the bar or you can sit at the tables or sofas, All the bartenders (except one) were extremely friendly and helpful. I think the clientele is the best part though, this bar had that right crowd, clean and goodlooking but not snobby and stuck up, i met some really good people to just hang out with and I never had to go home alone unless I chose to. It seems to always have a crowd too, even earlier in the day when I go out (usually start after work around 5pm) I will definitly hang out here next time I come through Trampa...

    Hates it

    Typical...but not good.
    I was in Tampa for one month, I went here cause I heard it was good, the bartenders flirted with me long enough to figure out I wasn't putting out and then ignored me and most of the people around me the rest of the night. It's filled with 80% of pretentious queens in their 40's trying to look like they are in their 30's and failing, who think "it's the place to go" but it's not. I went back a second time before I left because a friend wanted to go thought maybe I just caught it on a bad night but no, it was basically the same, walk from one side to another, stand pose, walk back. wouldn't go back when I pass back through.
