How's the real cruising at the Eagle these days?

A portrayal of cruising as fashion — or vice-versa — happened there this week. The bar hosted a cruising-themed fashion show July 12, 2017 by designer Willie Chavarria for New York Fashion Week: Men's.

Once inside the Eagle, there were a handful of old guard leathermen behind the bar and sprinkled around the space, embodying the BDSM and motorcycle-imbued subculture that continues to shape mainstream trends. The show was appropriately kicked off with Smokey Robinson's iconic song "Cruisin'" which I've haven't been able to take off of repeat since I saw the show. From the very first look, it was clear that through impeccable casting and styling, Chavarria captured a look that was sweet and full of swagger. The silhouettes were exciting and continued to advance his cholo-inspired aesthetic: His trousers sat high and were cinched at the waist, but billowed out at the leg. His black motorcycle jackets looked incredible oversized and styled without a shirt underneath.

Despite the excellent tailoring, some of the strongest elements of the collection were the graphics. One of the stand out messages was "Silence Still Equals Death," an update of the popular motto of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, that he placed on several different shirts. I loved the T-shirts that featured a crucified Christ and bore the words "How Can I Tell Mom & Dad," bluntly confronting the dichotomy between the "traditional" values of church and family and the lifestyles we want to lead for ourselves. He also presented several flat bill caps that had the words "Cruising" embroidered across them in a cool gothic script, which paired perfectly with the music and vibe of the space.

Probably the best bar in the city for action. Maybe the Cock as well, but I was only at the Cock once and there was very little actual action going on while I was there.

You won't see any major sex at the Eagle either, I don't think I've ever seen anyone get fucked there. It's more jacking and some occasional sucking, but it does go on especially in the second floor bathroom and around the pool table in the back.

Saturdays after midnight are the best times to go, and you'll find a lot of hot Raging Stallion/TitanMen types there during the summer on the roof bar and you may even recognize a porn star or two. A trip to the Eagle during Folsom East Festival in June is a must.

Sexual tension is high in certain corners of this place, but they do a steady job of breaking things up (only when anything below the waste is involved). I have been told not to worry, they won't kick you out, but I don't push the envelope. If you have to be told not to break the rules more than a couple of times, you should be told to leave. Treat respect with respect.

Do not be too hard on the management. They could get hit with huge fines or even get shut down by the city. Why the city is wasting NYPD resources on monitoring gay bars is beyond me.

It was pretty decent however overt sex is not allowed by the Eagle 'patol' staff who zealously walk around the place putting a stop to it wherever they see it.

I went to this bar on a very recent visit to NYC and I was very impressed with the many different types of hot guys of all shapes and sizes. There is a very cruisy atmosphere that I did not experience in some of the other bars in town. I hooked up with several hot guys on a Friday and Saturday night.

Wow, this place is great. Why waste money going to a bookstore. There's no cover and there is action just about any night here. Friday, Saturday and then Sunday beer blast are best times. The best action spots are the men's room on the second floor, the front off the bar on the second floor by the pool table next to the men's room, and the smoking patio out back on the main floor. There's some security but they just tell you to cool it and move on sometimes.

This place is fantastic. Great bunch of friendly and randy guys of all types. Thursday nights are leather nights and part of the second floor is restricted to guys in gear or going bare-chested, which kicks up the hots. The rooftop in the summer is a great place to hang and it is shoulder-to-shoulder with beef and muscle. The notorious back corner and bathrooms get tons of action and are regularly monitored by the security staff to stop blowjobs and stuff in case NYPD has undercover agents in there trying to close the joint down. This is the closest to a European sleaze bar that New York has. Lots of Brazilians hangout here too, which is always fun. A great, uninhibited place to hang if you let yourself go and stop being a tightass.

I went here on St. Patrick's Day at about 10 pm. There were male dancers, one had no problem showing his hard dick and letting you stroke it for him. Had lots of fun in one of the dark corners. I sucked four cocks on hot guys in their twenties and had mine sucked also. Wish I was in New York more often. I had a blast!

This place is a craphole! Nothing but a bunch of old tired leather queens. The staff is rude and there is an area that has a 'dress code'. Basically it means you cannot be dressed nice, must be a disgusting, stinking, dirty looking biker type. Yeah I know it's a leather bar, but what happened to freedom of choice?

This place is probaly your best bet to get it on with a hot guy or two and unlike the bookstores and baths it's free to get in and it's a bar. Friday and Saturday nights most of the action is on the second floor by the pool tables and bathroom but in just about any dark area fun can be had. Also, Sunday beer blast is really good starting around 7 pm -- even better if Monday is a holiday. Security can break things up but it depends on who is working that night as some break it up and others don't at all.

I have been here once before and thought it was tame but two Saturdays ago was hot! This guy grabbed my ass at the bar upstairs so I followed him to a corner. While making out he found the hole in my jeans between my legs (not wearing underwear). He went to town finger fucking me in the middle of the bar. He whipped it out so I could give him a handjob during the whole thing. He also took my cock out and sucked it in front of everyone upstairs in a dark corner, and by a window near the pool table. I'll be back!

The Eagle sucks. Just another boring Chelsea bar. No sex. No sexual tension.

I went to a private party here that they had closed the upstairs for. The bouncer still was walking though the area and kicking people out for sexual activity. I think when the old Eagle closed Guiliani opened this Disney version. I have been to Eagles all over the country and the one in Manhattan is the worst and sorriest excuse for a leather bar I have ever seen. I know it is still a bar and not a sexclub but making the bouncer act like he is doing a cardio workout by running around and around everyone like he was doing the other night was crazy. I sat back and watched him and a group of us just kept laughing at him. It was really sad.

Just use your head -- this isn't a bathhouse, after all. I have had my dick sucked on the roof deck, been in a three-way at the urinals on the second floor (with guys watching through the chain link fence), and gotten fucked in the stall. I don't think I have ever seen the stall when someone wasn't getting fucked. The roof deck is especially hot when it is crowded. All those big bodies can hide some pretty overt action. If you like beefy, regular looking studs, this is the place to have some sweaty fun.

Pretty good crowd Thursdays to Sundays, but not many guys there on other nights. The bathrooms are very cruisy, although you do need to be discreet or the bouncers may come in and break things up. I've sucked many cocks there and taken some guys home as well.

Well, it's a bar. With a room that is dark. That's true. Every corner is constantly patrolled by bar staff who will toss you out for even flashing your dick. If Disney opened a leather/fetish bar, it would be the Eagle. With one or two exceptions the barmen are without personality or even stuck up. The Friday night doorman is a nice guy though. But overall -- it's all hype and not worth the trouble unless you're going to get a haircut from Jake on Thursday night.

Are you kidding? The Eagle has become a Chelsea boy bar with a lot of attitude, and not much else. If that's what you like, fine, but don't expect much action.

No sex going on at the bar (and they'll kick you out if you try) but if you are looking for a hot masculine man to take home, this is the place to be. I've always had good luck there.

Admission is free and it's a great place to meet white bears and chubs. Very few black, Latino, etc. It has three floors and the second floor is actually the dark room, but very little cruising. Went there last Saturday and there was no sex anywhere.

I have been told to stop having sex, but have never been thrown out. They just break it up. I guess the mayor is at it again. Also, the guys are very hot lately. Wednesday nights, beleive it or not, seem to be very busy and cruisy besides the weekend.

I've gotten into some hot scenes here. You need to be careful for the workers. It seems like they come around every five minutes with flashlights. They definitely don't condone any nudity. It's a great place to make out with a hot daddy, though.

This has to be one of the worst places in the current gay male leather sex world. It's all attitude, with no sex, no fun, and lousy drinks. I thought the world had come to an end when I was there. There are so many better places in New York City.

This is a great bar to meet people, but they have signs in all the bathrooms about no sex. On Saturday night there were men walking around with flashlights checking the bathrooms to make sure you were not doing anything. You can go into a stall and have some fun you might get thrown out.

I was here two weeks ago and had a blast, both downstairs in a huddle of guys and then upstairs in the toilet. I went back today, also on a Sunday, to find the place rather well lit with signs all over warning people not to have any sex on the premises. There was an employee checking out the bathrooms periodically. What a disappointment! I hope it's temporary.
