Sometimes change is NOT good... – The Cuff used to be THE place for Men (with a CAPITAL M) to meet in Seattle. In the past 2 years, it has been in a rapid and sad decline. New STRAIGHT owners came in and fired almost all the staff, who were greatly responsible for creating the success of the establishment. The only things going for it are a great environment, nice outdoor patio, and it is STILL the place to go on Pride Day for the massive street party. I used to go to the Cuff 2-3 times a week. Now it's once a year, for the Street Party.
Gone Down Hill – Recently the Cuff has made major changes. All for the bad. Different Bartenders and the feel is all wrong. Used to be fun BUT no more.
Lousy service, lousy drinks, and lousy music. You can do better at other bars in town.
One of Seattle's Best Gay Bars – The Cuff is a great laid back gay bar. It is unpretentious, unlike some of Seattle's other gay bars. It is big, and has plenty to do. The scene is pretty mixed. Mondays have free pinball and games, and a great low key time to unwind at the Cuff.
The Cuff Is Too Complex! – When did customer service fall out of the structure for operating a bar, dance club, and lounge? If anyone knows customer service it's the gay community-but The Cuff has fallen into a very self serving rut. Request a song-sorry, you're stuck with whatever "trend" the DJ assigns themself to. I can drink at home, dance somewhere else, and chat with strangers ANYWHERE else. The Cuff is off of my list!!
Huge, cruisy nightclub offering drinks, dancing and men, men, men. – The Scene
This dark, expansive space is one of the most popular gay bars in town. There are pool tables, darts, pinball, three barrooms, a large outdoor patio, and a noisy little dance floor for getting down. It draws men of all ages on weekend nights, an eclectic mix of Abercrombie & Fitch pretty boys to bearded daddies.
With its cross-generational appeal, the Cuff is simply where you'll find the most men. While suspended TVs play looped footage of male strippers and college wrestlers, the guy-heavy clientele roams with drinks in hand. When things get too noisy or smoky, there's always room on the open-air patio.
this is the place if you want to just relax with friends or cruise a bit. there is someone for everyone here leather twink and everything in between. the staff puppy and daddy jeff are the greatest hosts you guys rock!!! and larry is the greatest bartender always smiling and pours some fantastic drinks!!!!
Lusty after leather clad men – I have to admit, I'm not gay and I'm a chick. My sister is gay and so is my brother. We all like to meet here with our significant others and hang out and dance. This is a great place. Lots of men without shirts. Love those Chaps.
Fun place, hot men! – To me, The Cuff Compex provides several great bar areas to cruise and mingle. I always find lots of hot men to cruise or just to chat with. I love shooting darts and then hanging out in the back bar or on the Dog Run or Patio. The NX3 Tea Dance was a blast - WOOF! The Cuff is gay owned and has a great staff and is always giving back to the gay communnity. The Cuff is a great Men's bar!
