    Hates it

    Grime, dirt, scum (the dirt and human varieties). Vast hallways, passages, and corridors filled with a strange emptiness. There's going to be a RECON party in April? What kind of guys will that attract to a place like Flex? You can have it!

    Hates it

    Same crowd all the time with a few wanderers. Some guys are ok but others are downright obnoxious and full on turds. Was alot better a few years ago but like everywhere has gone downhill fast. The friendliest bartenders are Troy and Bob. If they arent there dont spend anymore time. An irritating development is the habit of guys playing the internet jukebox with their smart phones. Customers have gotten into the annyoing habit of playing 20 or more songs without anyone knowing. Jukebox runs nonstop for three or more hours. So get used to listening to other people's tunes all night long. If you don't like the music it gets boring pretty fast, as eye candy is in short supply. The bartenders are the only reason to go anymore.

    Live music and food one door from the Hawk
    They serve Mexican food. Have bottled and draft beer of a multitude of different varieties including craft beers. The wall behind the bar is lined with Rodney Dangerfield memorabilia (lol) and a jukebox has nothing but old school rock on it. The customers are mostly twenty-thirty y.o.'s indie rockers and punks. Some old men once in a while. Some gay guys (maybe from next door at the Hawk). The bartenders are all girls, and the crowd is a mix of male and female. Very loud.

    Not gay but it has live music and hot dogs :)
    Yeah its not a full service restaurant. Its a bar that serves hot dogs with something like fifty different toppings and features bands and dj's. Its a fun spot in the expanding and gentrifying Gordon Square neighborhood. Not for the pretentious or super trendy fags.

    A faded beauty
    The oldest gay bar in Cleveland has sunk to its lowest point. Never never never anyone in the bar. A busy night is three or four men plus the bartender. Lots of room. Back patio open in summer (Summer Sundays until Labor Day are the only busy days all year). No leather, no hot guys, no fun. Old men quietly drinking. Thats it. Forget about it. The area is not the best at night so dont park too far away.

    Loves it

    Attitude central
    The place to be for those who need to be snubbed. Stand and model are the key words here. Its the cleanest and most stylish bar in Cleveland so it deserves three stars. The arrogant and self conscioulsy cool customers ruin what should be a nice experience. last time i was there four guys were at the bar and none would speak to anyone else. Two were absorbed in watching 'Modern Family' on the tv over the bar. ??? Stay home to watch your favorite tv shows. Bars are for guys to meet other guys. Ive never understood the posing and stand and model thing, even when I was younger.

    The lowdown no BS
    Three stars for the OK bartenders and the clean and spacious bar. But thats all. Maybe when they open the remodeled dungeon it will be better. Upstairs its empty most nights. What you find. One little group of a woman and her two men friends sit at the far end of the bar and talk among themselves all night. At the other end of the bar old men and thirty yo's come and go. Most guys dont sit at the tables except on weekends. Friday and Saturday the transvestites or whatever you may call them fill the bar. Ive seen some of the strip shows and they are best skipped unless you like super skinny flamers with an occasional 'straight' guy 'just doing it for the money'. Who needs this? I dont.
