There was a gay bar on Polk St. in San Francisco called the White Swallow.

Here in the South. All the gay bars are basically 'sports' bars during Alabama/Auburn football season. They basically shut off any music and turn on the big screen.

Also...as gay bar names go that's pretty tame.

I met my SO in the late 80's at a gay bar called "Mabel's Beauty Shop and Chainsaw Repair"

The guy that owned it had it decked out with those pink beehive vintage hair dryers and this fake back story like about "Mabel" and her Lover "Eunace"
There was a adjacent lesbian bar called "Eunace Crabtree's Cut Rate Delicatessen and Bait Shop" With even more bric a brac on the walls (fishing nets, fake photos, canoes, etc) With a big neon sign above the bar that flashed "Fresh Fish....Fresh Fish"

O..M...G! I totally remember both of those places! And I could not, for the life of me, remember their names.... "something, something chainsaw repair" and "something cut rate bait shop".  Thank you, thank you for a reminder of those heady days in 'Bama.

/ and you also must have been to Michael's. Who, along with his wife put up the money so her son could run the gay bar and perform as the timeless chanteuse "Magnolia"

In Tuscaloosa? Only a couple of times when one of the 'mystik crews' would do their mardi gras party at the theaters across the street. Great fun..great shows as it was just mostly the crew captains, who were rank..ahhh..rank amatures and a scattering of decent drag queens.

We hung out at a fun bar in London that had a sign out front reading "Not a strip club, but still a fun bar"

dodecahedron: There was a gay bar on Polk St. in San Francisco called the White Swallow.


In that same era, there was also a liquor store a block or so down the street in Polk Gulch called Sukker's Likkers, and a clothing store called Hard-On Leather for Men.  And I think the gay nightclub called the EndUp (around 6th and Harrison) might still exist, or if not, it did until recently.  For SF gay businesses that started in the pre-AIDS era, subtlety of nomenclature was not exactly a prominent feature.

The Brits think every good thing from anywhere in the Isles, or even their commonwealths, are British. Except for England... their good things are English.

The bad things? "Bloody Irish, Scots, Welsh," etc ... Well, except, you know, England. It's always "bloody Britain"...

I love the fact that we started talking about a gay sports bar in Denver, and now we are discussing history and geography.

Back in college, a group of us went to the Laugh Factory in Hollywood.  Unfortunately, it was "amateur night", and most of the comedians sucked....and the movie lace was maybe half-full.

Fortunately, Damon Wayans came on stage and he was HILARIOUS.

After that night, I always respected him...because he loved being a comedian that much...where he was willing to get on stage when the attendance was mediocre at best.

And this was back in 1998, so he was already famous.

Bit of background first: Winston-Salem NC includes Old Salem, a Moravian community going back to the 1700s. Traditionally, men living there would live and work in the Single Brothers House between moving out with their parents and marriage.

There's a bar in Winston-Salem called "Single Brothers" and I totally thought it was a gay bar at first.
