    Cool bar. Crowd is good-looking. One bartender was very hot! Not a bad place to start or wrap up your evening before or after the dance club. If you like conversation, sit at the bar and chat up a bartender or bring a friend. A little diner a couple of doors down serves good food.

    Heres the view from a relatively new Clevelander (grad student from Charlotte NC): Several friends told me how good the Hawk is. Went with a couple of guys one night during the workweek and the regulars were friendly enough. Not too exciting. The bartender was a short old guy who liked to make silly jokes. Not a very cool hangout. Gave it another chance on the weekend by myself as my friends like to dance and I just wanted a place to chill. Wow! What a change. The OK regulars were gone and the place was full of trashy white guys and scary looking black homeless people. Quite a few women. Were they fag hags or lezzies- I dunno. Didn't care to find out. Here's some good news for you: the straight bar next door ("Now That's Class") was a riot! Bartenders were cool, crowd was fun. If you're gay but straight acting and don't care about getting laid, check out "Class" and forget the Hawk. As a music fan, Class was great, live bands were playing and had a lot of fun. Hawk looks like an old skool eighties post-AIDS dump. Can't believe they still make gay bars like this anymore. Way to go Cleveland!

    Not what I expected. But when you think about it, most gay bars aren't what one would expect. Check it out if you like the divey old skool gay atmosphere.
