Cash only bar. We walked many blocks to get to the bar just to find out it's cash only! It's 2023. No bar should be cash only. What are they hiding???

When I got there, I was so excited. I have been wanting to check this place out for the longest time. I walked in with my head high. When I entered it was chaos. The music was sounding great, but very few were listening. It was just a bunch of dudes standing around saying nothing and being by themselves-which in fairness is most gay clubs in 2023. Hardly anyone was dancing, just standing around-some without any rhythm. Just bodies. It was so gay and yet not gay at all. I was afraid to look at someone let alone go up to someone and start a conversation. Everyone stood there and swayed lightly with the sound. No gay connections, no grinding---you might as well have women come and make it straight.

Guy at coat check were the friendliest ever. Very reasonable prices for drinks. Guests - very eager to know each other. Had the best time ever. Thank you The Eagle NYC!

At first I was nervous about visiting the eagle in NYC. There are some harsh reviews here.I first visited on Thursday 3/23. The coat check staff were amazing. The bartenders were all friendly. I felt like the drink prices were reasonable. About $5 more than what I pay at the eagle in providence but it’s NYC. I did see security point their flashlight at someone once. But people need to be respectful of others. You can’t block access to others for your “fun.”Went back Saturday the 25th, and had an amazing experience. The guys at coat check asked my partner their pup name, which was cute. The bartenders were polite and the service was fast.I cannot wait to return!

Im listing the places I’ll visit again in my next trip to NYC i came up to this place and honestly I couldn’t ignore what had happened to me back in 2016 when the racist bouncer “white chubby and bearded” had to search me from head to toe and even had the audacity to tell me to”move around” to check me from behind all that ladies and gentlemen because I have a saudi passport with the traditional clothing as the the passport picture!! NOT TO MENTION he grabbed my passport and was checking through pages like i was in the airport!! he let all my friends pass!! I was so angry embarrassed iv never seen anyone being searched like that for a bar! i was drunk so i ignored it but never forget it!! And we literally didn’t stay for even 5 minutes, So yeah never again

I have been going to the Eagle for almost 10 years and it’s always been a favorite until the last year. With the increased cover charges, coat check always being an annoyance and a dwindling variety of people who go, they might as well move to Hell’s Kitchen.

I went last night and never ever again , I will be really objective . Learn how to manage a bar, because it's really chaotic how you manage a "cruising bar", they had only one floor open last night , so this is not a problem at all , but when you put a bar completely in the dark and you can't see absolutely nothing they are a problem, 3 poor spotlight reds at the bar and some lights at the clockroom , the rest of the bar absolutely no light at all. The barman who don't know what to do with his body who walk around, It's very, very annoying, and who talk to himself , it will be better he talk to the customers than talk to himself. The price of the drinks are not displayed anywhere, so apart from if I didn't see because it was so dark, but I did look though, another lesson to learn maybe? displayed the price list of your drinks, to know what the customer is going to pay, same at the cloakroom no price displayed, apart from tips Then the "cash only" is a bit limited in 2023, don't you think??? the COVID did not teach you anything ?

The staff is top notch. Friendly, fun. But a $3 ATM fee is not. Charging people a premium to spend more money at your bar is greedy. Especially after a $25 cover.

They’ll loose your jacket.Went there last night and waited in a 30 minute line just to check my jacket. Kept the ticket till the end of the night. Gave the ticket to the attendant but they had given my jacket to someone else. They told me to wait till the end to see if it was somewhere, which it was no where to be found. They made no offer to replace it. I wear a L they gave me someone else’s unchecked S jacket so I could get home in the middle of the winter.They take no responsibility for their actions of not properly taking care of your property. Even when a nice worker there tried to help me the Manager Oscar pretty much just shooed me away. And it was my birthday on top of it. Really terrible way to treat customers.

Was having a great time at the Wednesday night jockstrap party until I went upstairs and encountered a woman who had stationed herself in the dark room and was ogling the gay men having sex. When I complained, the bouncer told me she was more than welcome... Don't understand that at all unless it's part of their new policy to keep the friskiness to an absolute minimum....

I have four times already . It was before the pandemic but the bar is amazing, good drinks, friendly people and nice music. I think it’s my favorite place in NYC.
13:44 20 Oct 22
Great loaction, good music ... BUT a jockstrap party where 50% of the crowd wears ordinary street wear doesn't make sense. Wouldn't be possible in a similar club in Berlin.

One of my favorite bars in the city. The only leather bar left. Great staff and atmosphere. Sadly the new dance floor and the door cover has changed the clientele but at least it creates more space.

So glad I read the reviews prior to going. 25$ coverage with expensive drinks - get over yourself. Come to the Eagle in Toronto where it’s free admission, 5-8$ drinks, and a great open fun area with no hovering security.

Expensive, every night they charge from15 dollars or more, with a weak excuse, also the drinks are so expensive and little. They are milking the gay community. They need to improve cleanliness so bad and more because of MP🦍 and COVID.

Very large club with several levels and multiple bar areas. Music was good and the dance floor on the first level is large. Started to really get busy after midnight.

A great time altogether, at first. My partner and I were finishing a drink and the bouncer threw our drinks to the ground and said we must leave. I asked “Why?” He replied, “He’s stumbling.” We paid more than $50 for the two drinks he threw to the ground and we attempted to remain calm. The bouncer proceeded to exclaim that we had to leave immediately. My partner and I are very relaxed individuals so we complied, however, we live in Manhattan and will never return to The Eagle. What was once a safe place now feels threatening. Very unfortunate.

0 stars.... 25$ dollar cover charge cash only. Only for security to watch you get stamped and then physically have to check it. Then security walking in acting with no sense Then coat check and expensive drinks. No thank you . If you wanna spend 45$ walking in please go here

Love Eagle NYC, & honestly it's been a few years since I've visited. I recently attended the DILF party and it was awesome! Great music, tons of guys & very mixed crowd, almost forgot COVID is still a thing. The new dance floor they added is amazing! Only issue is the cash only bar at an underwear party. My friend lost money & I'm sure many people do, hard to really stash your cash if you're only wearing underwear.

This is a nice enough place but on a Saturday, no thanks! $25 cover, $4 coat check, $10 drink, $2 tip. That is $40+ just to get in and start the night. There is nothing appealing about that at all. It isn’t exactly inclusive either as only well off people can afford it, so you’re going to spend your night surrounded by people who are all pretty much the same and pretty wealthy. Nor is it good value for money because nothing special happens inside. Expensive and a massive hike in cover compared to pre COVID. Got to feel ripped off. No thanks :/

Heard a lot of things about The Eagle and decided it to try it out one Saturday. To my surprise, there was a $25 cover to get in. Nowhere on their instagram did they mention any sort of cover, so it was annoying to pay for an Uber only to see it cost more than my trip to get in. In my experience, any LGBT spot in NYC that feels the need to charge a cover isn't worth the price of admission, so I left. STATE THAT THERE'S A COVER ON YOUR INSTAGRAM! DON'T SCAM PEOPLE!

So I went to have a good time tonight and when I went to retrieve my belongings, my wallet was completely missing from coat check. When I went back in minutes from noticing, they acted dumb. I flipped out and asked them to check the cameras and threatened legal action. Suddenly my wallet turned up. But my wallet was missing my debit card. Don’t trust this coat check. Keep your belongings safe. They will steal your items.

From the moment I walked into this establishment, I was instantly mesmorized by the music. Wild and crazy. Hedonistic and forbidden I could let myself go.

First off don’t ask me for proof of vaccination. My personal health choice and as a registered nurse in Boston it’s against HIPPA to ask me about my health records, your bar shouldn’t be open if your requiring people to show proof first off. I was completely shocked when I was asked clearly there dead for a reason. There was no one even out side so when y’all go out of business just realize why! All the other places in New York were packed fun no vaccine proof required so I would recommend everyone going somewhere else

A slice of classic New York city this is what the town is made of. Three stories of non-stop naughty fun! At the very top you’ll find a fabulous rooftop with a view of Manhattan, and underneath the city lights you will find the friendliest crowd in all of the city. This is a must for any kinky visitor or resident!

Came here for the first time last night during my trip to New York. Staff at cloakroom patiently answered all my questions, with only a slight tone of condescension, but overall very friendly and helpful. Despite the crowds, very short queues at the bar. Good atmosphere, I had a great time and I went again today. Reminds me a bit of Berlin. Loved the rooftop terrace.
