Different, that's for sure! 7/28/2007

As the Philly gay scene goes, Bike Stop certainly is an anomaly. It's not quite a club; not quite a neighborhood bar. There's live music, a weekly underwear party (called "Bulge"), a sports bar, and a leather enthusiast shop. The crowd usually skews older but not always. It's definitely worth checking out but don't base your opinion on just one visit. Every night of the week brings a different crowd so give this place a few chances. One of the best things about Bike Stop is that you will almost definitely meet people you've never met at any of the other gay hangouts in town. Pros: Drink prices, great staff, easy-to-talk-to customer base. Cons: Some of the older customers can be a little too frisky...and a tad under-dressed. more

Security and staff rude if do not fit leather, bear type 1/18/2007

As my friends and I enter the premises, we did not feel welcome based on the door mans attitude, moreover we came to play pool but the staff members were not polite. I believe my friends and I were too slim and too conservatively dressed for this bar. I do not believe I'll return again, but if bored I would return just to determine if it was just this night. If you are a chubby chaser, this is a great place to frequent. My friends and I do not discriminate because we are such a diverse group. Hopefully the rest of the world will follow and stop this separation; there is room for everyone. Pros: A place for gay men into leather and bear types Cons: Parking is difficult; staff doesn't seem open to different clientele more

Definitely worth a swig or two 8/21/2005

Definitely only for the off the normal beat bear, bondage and leather crowds. Nice masculine men on occasion. Normally nice staff. Worth hanging out in. More into the upstaris Short Stop Sports Bar. more

Needs Renovations 1/2/2005

The Bike Stop is in serious need of renovations and modernization. This place definately needs new management which will not cut corners. more

Bears Oh my! 12/15/2003

This is a good friendly bear bar, where the locals like to meet for drinks and good conversations. Although leathermen are abound, the bears certainly rule this roost. certain nights dress code enforced, and the pit is a must to visit. Pros: friendly atmosphere, inexpensive Cons: needs renovations more

To each his own -- not for me... 7/29/2002

After the third time going there, I am convinced the beer-guzzling, overweight bear crowd is happy there. More power to them. Good beer and friendly bartenders, though. Definitely no Washington Eagle. more

Needs Help and Renovations 7/1/2002

The Bike Stop can be a nice place to chat, but the place is in need of help. It needs renovations and the staff could be more friendly. Pros: Crowd Cons: Service, Atmosphere, Staff Deportment more

Editorial

  • In Short
    On weekends, leather and Levi enthusiasts hang out on the cruisey first floor as well as down below in the even more cruisey Pit Stop. A mixed crowd of average joes, bears, and leather dykes watch the game on TV, play pool and shoot the breeze. Even if you don't fit into the biker or bear category, it's still a good place to hang out. The second and third floors are definitely more comfortable for those who are leather- or fur-challenged.
