Address314 Pike Street
LocationSeattle, Washington, U.S.

Seattle Eagle, or The Eagle,[1] is a gay bar in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood, in the U.S. state of Washington.

The bar is owned by Keith Christensen, as of 2010,[2] and caters to the leather subculture.[3]

Description and history[edit | edit source]

The Eagle is the city's oldest leather bar and attracts a "young, fairly mixed" crowd. The venue hosted theme nights such as "Underbear", "Vibrator", and "Western", as of 2003.[4]

The original owners of the bar purchased Le Chateau in 1980, and changed the name to J&L Saloon.[5]

The gay bar was one of eleven in Seattle threatened with ricin in 2009.[6]

In 2010, the bar received a violation for lewd conduct from the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) for showing a video that contained a man's erection.[2][7] The bar has received "technical assistance" from WSLCB officers screening videos for objectionable content.[2]

Detox Icunt and Vicky Vox of DWV appeared at the club in 2013.[8] "Dickslap" and the "Make Out Party" are regular events at the Eagle.[7][9]

Reception[edit | edit source]

Seattle Weekly included the Eagle in their 2009 list of the city's ten "most intimidating" dive bars.[10]

Matt Baume of The Stranger wrote, "There is nothing stranger than being at the Eagle during daylight hours—somehow it feels like it should be shrouded in perpetual dark, like a Gotham City where Batman suggestively rubs Burt Ward's package in a shadowy corner. It makes a squeaky noise."[11]
