Great bar, I really had fun and made new friends. A little trick, if you register on the site 909gay,com then you can get a voucher for a free drink

Amazing and important space for the men in our leather community, run by two total legends! These guys do so much for the local scene, they must work their asses off. Several times a year The Laird also opens their space up to all genders, and these days are the best fun! I always feel so welcome. I never miss one. The beer garden also is top notch x

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.
