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.
The original owners of the bar purchased Le Chateau in 1980, and changed the name to J&L Saloon.
The gay bar was one of eleven in Seattle threatened with ricin in 2009.
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. The bar has received "technical assistance" from WSLCB officers screening videos for objectionable content.
Reception[edit | edit source]
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."
