Eagle NYC

Gay in West Village, Chelsea & Meatpacking District

A bi-level club full of hot men in leather, the Eagle is the choice for out-and-proud fetishists. Its two levels, plus roof deck, offer plenty of room for dancing and drinking, which are done with abandon. There are frequent theme nights, so make sure to check the website lest you arrive without the appropriate attire (which may be nothing).

Located in a renovated 19th-century stable, the inside joke is that 'the studs keep coming.' The rooftop deck is one of the best in the city and is perfect on summer nights. It gets packed on warm Sundays when the bar opens earlier in the evening.
