      Backroom Bars in Phoenix?
      I love active patios and back room. Does this place have one? Does any bar have one in Phoenix?

      great place
      After a very disappointing evening at Charlie's, I came to the Bunkhouse. All Male, not a drag queen or Chick in the place. Friendly guys, cheap drinks and a great time.

      Kick Back & Cruisy
      I've visited Bunkhouse a couple of times in the summer of 2006 and it has made an impression. The bartenders were very nice and too cute! The crowd, mostly 30-to-40-somethings, was very pleasant. No attitude at this bar - I kicked back, conversed with a few strangers, and I was cruised a bit (it was alright, though, not creepy.) Had a great time there... will visit again soon!

      Pat!! We met you and several others in your group on your recent cruise to Ensenada. You guys were so very nice and made us feel welcome. So the next time we go to Phoenix we will be stopping by the Bunkhouse. Donna and Susie from Bakersfield

      Friendly crowd, mens bar feeling, great patio
      Have been coming here for years for happy hour or early evening starter drinks. Bartenders have always been friendly. The bar itself is nothing special, just a hangout, but has a really great big patio out back. Especially nice on a warm night. Fire pit, bbq.

    • Local yocals. A nice warm welcome.
      Real down to earth. Easy to find. Two pool tables were free the Tuesday I was there. Nice looking crowd. No pressure.

      Great Mans Bar
      Had a good time. Cheap drinks with nice lookin bears roaming around the bar. Bartenders were great and helpful to this out-of-towner. Will go back to this bar next time Im in town. Which will be next week!

      Wrong Night?
      Went in on a recent trip to Phoenix. Bartenders were not, well, friendly, interior wasn't anything to write home about. Patio had a lot of larger men. An overweight barback in track pants and dirty teeshirt shuffling around picking up empties kind of put a stamp on the entire experience. Didn't bother to finish my drink.

      Relaxed fun atmosphere!
      Have been a couple of times, the first was on a karaoke night, and that was a little scary but going back on the weekend the bar was full of regular guys (bear type) down to earth staff that were all pretty friendly. We'll be back for sure!!

      MEN + Cheap Beer | Friendly, Cozy & Cruisy
      What more do you need for the perfect gay bar? This is an easy going blue jeans kind of place as comfortable as old hush puppy sleepers. All types, but tends to an older crowd. You will probably find what you are looking for. Wear your best underwear on Thursdays. Sexy bartenders.
