A neighborhood gay bar with absolutely with a friendly clientele and staff, cheap drinks, and absolutely no pretentious attitude.
A couple of miles east of The Strip.
The crowd is mostly local, with a few tourists mixed in, and mostly guys in their 30s and up with a few women mixed in.
Very cheap. There is never a cover and you can get a beer for $4 (or less sometimes).
Weekend nights are the most popular.
Because you want to go to a gay bar but the thought of going to a trendy nightclub makes you itch.
The place doesn't look like much from the outside but it's nicer than you'd expect inside.
A simple bar like the one you go to in your town.
There is absolutely nothing special about the Funhog Ranch and that, precisely, is what makes it noteworthy.
This is the kind of bar found in just about every American city or town tolerant enough to have a gay bar. It's a single room dominated by a big central bar and a few cozy booths along one wall. That's pretty much it other than the video poker, darts, and jukebox providing the entertainment. No dance floor, no DJ, no velvet rope, no VIP booths with pricey bottle service. It's just a bar.
The clientele leans toward the levi/leather variety and its appreciators, definitely skewing a little older than your average trendy nightclub and a whole lot more casual. Friendly is the watchword; the kind of place where you can strike up a conversation with the bartender or the guy sitting next to you without breaking a sweat.
Prices are rock bottom - no such thing as a $40 cover and an $8 domestic beer here. Think free and $4 at most. What a welcome change.
By the way, in case you are wondering, the Funhog Ranch was the name of the establishment before it became a gay bar. Quite frankly it makes more sense now.
