Very popular leather bar
The Eagle in NYC attracts a wide variety of men for cruising and all around fun. Sunday's fun beer blast brings in even boys you wouldn't expect to see at an Eagle. Head to the roof for all kinds of debauchery.

      The death clock is ticking for the Eagle
      When the Eagle was on West Side Highway, they were a strictly leather dress-code bar and they were fantastic! When they moved up to their new home, they dropped all but 1/6th of 1/7th of that (there is a dress code, hardly enforced, on Thursday on one half of one of the three floors now -- a far cry from 100% dress-code!) None of that really matters much now anyway as since a shiny new high-rise condominium building went up across the street and the Hudson Yards is being developed, tolerance for gays and leathermen is evaporating. The Eagle is already self-enforcing things like "you must have a shirt on the roof deck" and "you can't have a cigarette on the sidewalk in front of the bar" because children might see you (or something like that)... Who was there first? Oh, yeah, it doesn't matter, does it. Money rules and they WILL find a reason to void their liquor, business or other licence required to operate in time -- mark my words. Add to this that a simple mixed drink (like a Jack & Coke) is now upwards of $15. I think they know their time is limited and they're miking the patrons all they're worth until they're forced to close. Enjoy it while you can, but please be respectful: wear your leather or kit and leave your fag hags at home! Don't bring cu*ts to a leatherman's bar!!

      Only leather bar in NYC
      Great 3 floors (when they are open), some bartenders are rude, others fantastics), te rooftop is a plus.

      Not trans friendly
      The scene and the bartenders were fine, and I would've had a good time, but one experience really turned me off and made my visit a bad experience. I was going to go to the upstairs part of the bar with a friend and even though my friend used the appropriate pronouns (I'm a transman and use he/him/his) when we were talking to the bouncer, he kept using female pronouns (she/her) even after we corrected him and didn't even apologize or try to correct himself, but just ignored us completely. I did not expect to have that sort of an experience in a gay bar since I was dressed as a guy, and my friends explicitly used male pronouns to start the conversation. My friends and I are not going to go back here because of how rude this employee was.

      not friendly
      Been to the Eagle because it was the only leather bar in NY. Never seen so rude and unfriendly staff especially the guy at the vestiaire. If it wasn't a gaybar, I should think they were homophobic. They organise jockstrap evening but when you're standing to close to each other, there is a guy with a light saying you have to stand back. Very bad experience....

      I was here on a Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday night during The 4th Of July weekend. Monday night was the only night that was not impressive. Even though this is a leather bar, there are all types of guys that go here and I loved how diverse the crowd was. I didn't go to very many bars on this NYC trip because The Eagle was good enough for me.

      Going down hill fast..5 STARSGreat bar & crowd 5 STARS!!!!!
      After living in NYC for over 30+ years its great to see this institution in its current location. Yes years ago there were more men in leather & the "play" was abundant...things change - but there is still lots of "activity" of all sorts to watch & participate in. I work a professional business job(suit & tie / 9-5) so late nites aren't as often(or late) as I'd like - but certainly Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays & Sundays are my favorites. Saturday & Sunday tends to get more out of towners...weekdays more Manhattanites & tourists. There is something for everyone that likes masculinity. I'm certainly not a bear nor a leather expert but I've always been welcomed, been comfortable, had fun and hope they continue what they are doing. The bartenders have all been nice, the bouncers considerate but firm(all but the short guy who can be a jerk at times) and the music & videos great......there is even a store that can help you with the things you want....real men having real fun. Went back last week for Jock Strap nite -Wednesday - lots of guys in jocks - hot but again the manager is an a-hole & the little bouncer a real jerk & both very disrespectful....still lots of play except when those 2 idiots charge in -sort of crazy to promote a jock strap nite & not expect & then be a holes a bout guys playing 2 the eagle. Also the coat check guy was either too drunk or stoned or stupid to be able to read the 3 digit coat check stubs. Get a new friendlier / efficient manager, get rid of the little pussy bouncer and the men can enjoy the great music & videos and atmosphere of being w/ leather men that enjoy each other....September 2014 May 2015... went to eagle 2x recently ..last sunday I was packed due to a city wide Bear event...the line to get to the roof deck was all the way down to the first floor.crazy. I went again on Thursday which is leather code nite. Again its eveident they need to get rid of the manager(I believe his name is Oscar).he scampers about doing things that should of been taken care of before they open at 10:00pm. Last nite he was hanging decorations at almost 11 pm in the first floor and then he is fixing beer taps that should of been checked before he has a line of thirsty customers. the bartenders really have to get over themselves & serve the customers & Then chit chat amoung themselves. For quite a while now customers have been complaining about the pour on the drinks..the worst was last night by the bartender on the first floor w/ the red cap. Then there is the rididculous rules about being admitted to the second floor ...there is no longer enough leather clad men to support the segregation of the customers. at one point a man was denied access to the 2nd floor because he was wearing black sneakers(no sneakers on 2nd fl) despite the fact he was shirtless & wearing a harness and leather arm bands! Then there is the drama ridden "Barber" that they place on the second floor taking up much space for his show. Its like a bad soap opera ...not many customers & yet it takes quite a while to get a buzz cut & the guy is using a hair dryer and teasing hair like it was aunt flo going to her weekly appt. Put him downstairs near the front of the bar & the coat check..people will see him (NYC has changed ...there are now women in the eagle...but the management & its drama inducing methods certainly do not help. Its too bad...once again customer service is traded for the idea that the establishment & its employees are doing the world a favor by being there.....even the manager was like a warden going into the bathrooms to break up the play that was gong on....his methods were more appropriate for a cell block of convicted felons...not a group of men that were enjoying a night out in various ways. There are ways of asking people that their behavior is not permissible at that time even tho its going on all over the 3 floors. Too bad ..the customers tend to be a great group of guys.

      PLACE TO HAVE FUN AND MEET NEW FRIENDS
      I have been at the Eagle at the first time on July the 4th 2013. Since that day, I cannot stay one only week far from all that movement. A good vibe place, nice guys and a surprisingly fair price for drinks. My favorite days? Saturdays and Sundays afternoon. I have made so many friends and learned a lot about leather and bear cultures. A really great place to hang out.
