A great place to get a good portion of pleasant sensations. Skin and invigorating atmosphere. You can get two free cocktails per share and a private room for an hour. To do this, you need to register on 909gay,com to create a profile and just show it to the administrator. I was very pleased, I want more. I will come.

Love this bar and the vibe. Good people, good prices, smoking patio and a food truck out in the front usually.

Amazing place with great music and a dark, sleazy (in a good way) vibe. I hope this bar never closes -- it's full of character and history. Support this bar with your money and patronage!

I absolutely loved this place! It’s such a sexy old school bar, the likes of which are few and far between these days. It’s a really fun crowd, fantastic music and drinks were cheap. This place is a must stop when in San Francisco.

The venues in this list have been curated by BLUF members, and we believe them all to be welcoming of men in leather uniform. However, note that in some cases, dresscode may only be approriate on certain nights. If in doubt, check with a venue before travelling.

We make every effort to keep the information on this page up to date. Please let us know of any errors or omissions.

In some cases, you may see more restrictive opening times listed in BLUF information than in information from Google. Where this is the case, it may mean that a place operates as a leather or dresscode bar only during the hours we have noted.

When you use location-based functions on this page, you location is not sent to BLUF, and is not stored by us.
