This place closed the arcade years ago. Used to be nice.

Just went there recently and was told by the cashier that the upstairs arcade area was not available anymore. Good bye, Admiral.

I was here this past summer and found several guys willing to suck my cock. Just go into a booth and leave the door slightly ajar. I pulled my cock out and got hard in no time was getting a good blowjob.

Two years ago, when I adventured to go to this place, it was amazing. The crowd at that time was mainly bi, inclined more to the married type. No pretention and no drama from anyone. Through the years the clientele has been reduced to the minimum! Barely anyone goes to this place. And those who go always close their doors. I wonder if there was an issue at some point that I am not aware of. It's too bad because this was the only place in the city that was safe, clean, and with good clientele.

It's dead most of the time. If they really wanted to drum up business they'd cut some gloryholes and maybe drop the price just a little. $10 would be fair.

This place is becoming A1! All ages, anytime.

Great place. It's discreet. There's an older married crowd. It's worth the entry fee. Booths upstairs.

Approximately two years ago this was the most discreet place for a movie and jackoff session between work and home at the end of the day. I don't know if I have missed something but suddenly the place is isolated at all times! Maybe because of the fee increase. It's a shame that little by little this place will close because of lack of clientele for the second floor booths.

Admiral is one of those places that is slowly coming back after being dead. There are always two or three cruisers here. The best times are early evenings or during the day. It's quiet, discreet and of course better on the weekends. I have been getting dick there lately after not seeing much. I recommend it as an option, especially since cruising in the bookstores has become so much harder.

I go occasionally. I find the place nice and clean. No irritating staff. There's an admission charge but then no tokens necessary. There is some sex going on. You'll find ethnic men too -- some Asians. It's better on weekends. Seems to attract a middle-aged crowd. This place should be busier than it is, frankly. The majority of sex takes place early in the day and evening. It's not a late night place. What would their wives think if they were getting dicks sucked late?

This place is best during the daytime. There's no point in going at night and waiting to see if some straight guy is going to come upstairs after watching strippers. It's a flat fee for the upstairs rooms and one can stay all day until closing. I've had some pretty good action just about everytime I've gone there. Straight, bi and gay guys come here.


Posted Oct 10 2005:
I visited this place last night. What a waste of money.
It is a place for straight men who like strippers. It costs to get in to watch old dried up women strippers. The old sluts come up to the guys and put their stinky pussies in the men's faces. Soda is expensive. A waste of time and money. Stay away from this joint run by the mafia!


Posted Dec 13 2004:
The Admirial is pretty much a strip show for straight guys, and a few couples. Strip shows do get a guy hot and hard, though, so it's possible to get some action. Just be patient. I suspect that a lot of the guys that go to the Admiral also show up at a gloryhole every now and then, so they know how the game is played. It typically happens when they make eye contact, and make a quick rub down the fly of their pants. Just last week, I had a good-looking stud do exactly that. In five minutes, we were in his car, and his eight inches were all the way down my throat.


Posted Sep 26 2004:
This place seems to have potential. The good thing is that there are no queens walking around having social chats in the hallways. The majority of the guys were straight or straight looking. They have a good variety of movies including some gay ones. Thumbs up!


Posted Dec 09 2002:
Ouch! Expensive entry fee and not much action in the arcade. The focus is on the straight boys strip club downstairs, and they rarely venture upstairs.


Posted Dec 22 2001:
After a fire, this place was totally renovated.They now charge a flat fee to enter for the video arcade - $10.00. Once you get up to the third floor where the arcade is, all the booths are free. There are no gloryholes whatever. There were a few older men who were interested, but it really seems that this is a straight guys' place.
