Lest you think the name of this place is a joke, a sign on the door announcing the bar’s “one drink minimum” reveals its true nature: Guys aren’t really coming here to drink. But don’t let that keep you from ordering a cocktail from the friendly bartender, especially if you prefer watching your leatherdaddy porn while listening to the jukebox tunes of Elvis Costello.
