The Cell Block has it all: Darts! A pool table! A leather bar in the back! Coined by regulars as “your neighborhood bar with a fetish,” this spot is a great place to meet your new queer best friends and then subsequently make out with them a few hours later. The main area of the bar is low-key and a nice place to chat with buddies over a heated game of pool, which is also free on Mondays. And the back is open for anyone wanting a more intimate, adult experience. Whether your preference is to be whipped or play a relaxing round of darts, this place caters to all.
