Seattle's best gay mens leather bar.
I've gone to the other gay bars of Seattle and I've made the Cuff my home bar, followed up by Mad pub. It's a mans bar, where you can go with friends and have a good time. It's not a debutante bar, nor trashy, it's down to earth west coast casual dress/blue collar fun.
Weekends you will find guys in their leather/levi's/harnesses/cowboy/Nasty Pig gear. The dance floor gets hot and heavy by 11pm on the weekends.
Happy hour from 5-8pm m-thurs is great too, half price appetizers, anyone for some pool, beer, and 3 dollar baskets of chicken strips with friends? It's awesome.
To the straight women you are welcome to come, and yes us gays know how to party hardy. But honey don't get out-of-line tapping your stiletto at me thinking you are gonna be treated like a royal princess, it's a guys bar. If it doesn't smell pretty like your powder room at home you don't have to be there and don't complain to us. Go to Pioneer Square or Belltown if you want guys to worship the ground you walk on ladies We'll call you out on your outfit for being last season if you give us attitude, you have no power over us. And if you bring your bf, he should be comfortable with getting hit on by other guys and if he wants to start trouble with it, be prepared to be asked to leave or 86ed.
Get ready to hold your nose!.
You have to enter through the bear bar up front. These guys have not had a bath in weeks and are so proud of the stiff smell of bo floting through the front bar. Crowded on sundays but tends to only be patronized by bar flies. Cliques everywhere. People are not approchable. Bartenders serve cheap vodka you will regret the next day. Nice light show that is cheapend by cheap decor and lights on the wall. If you go by yourself, youre on your own. You won't meet any people.
I do love it.
I do love this place.People are really cool and very well dress (good sense of fashion ) and very good looking guys .I think it is the best spot of the area specially the bar and dance floor .
Fun mixed "Levi" (not so much Leather) Bar.
Sunday T Dance is good, inexpensive drinks all day and in the summer, cheap hamburgers. Mondays have free games. Saturday before 11pm is good after that it's life in a gay sardine can. However you probably won't be drinking very much. $6.25 for a well cocktail is just a bit pricey, on top of $3 cover charge! I still go the Cuff. Its one of the better places. Lots of places to wander around.
Variety is great.
This place is a great hangout. The drinks are adequate, beer is cheap. It?s a huge bar, you can really walk around and change it up. The outdoor patio is huge and is a great spot to socialize without trying to shout over the music. The bar shows prOn which is a great distraction for unwanted conversations. Sundays ramp up and this is the spot ? packed and thumping!
Wow, still the best Sundays!.
Reading the old reviews, I'd suggest that they revisit the Cuff Complex. I was there on a Sunday recently and the Tea Dance was unbelievably fun. It starts at 4 PM, the DJ had no problems with all the requests I gave him and the format was a combination of 70's 80's 90's AND the current hot dance music over the afternoon and night (til 2AM.) The staff was friendly as were the bartenders. And what a great sound system! Still the best gay bar in Seattle.
All the right stuff !.
i have been going to the Cuff since i moved here and it remains my favorite club. on many occassions i have danced till i dropped. i have checked out all the other clubs in seattle but i always feel most comfortable at the cuff, the men are men and if you just want to cruise, thats cool, or if you strike a conversation with a new friend you can do that easily. i will continue to enjoy the cuff and it will stay on my hot list as long as its around. this club rivals the best in the u.s. , i have been to Ft. Laud, Miami Bch, New York, Atlanta, Key West, Ptown, LA, etc and the Cuff has all the right stuff!
