Barracks Bar

Long-running leather local

Leathermen, bears, and musclemen meet on the large outdoor patio for cruising. Opened 1992, this longtime favorite is also the host of some of the most popular leather events in the Coachella Valley.

Seen it all before

For me rather boring and I know some of these guys have to really think about their costumes they are or aren't wearing. But then not your leather and Levis man's man either.

Shut down

Well the owners and management were really stupid in allowing the Barracks to be shut down. They got in trouble for watering their drinks meaning pouring water in their bottles and then so much open sex happening in the bar. They were warned several times but did not listen so you get what you wanted. Too bad for it was a long standing Sunday afternoon tradition in the valley. The question is will they learn their lesson and as well not try to cheat their customers who have supported them all these years.

The wildest patio anywhere. Pool tournaments on Monday's and Friday's. Underwear party weds not for the timid. Sunday beer bust world renowned.

Friendly, Good Layout, Levi-Leather

The only problem was that I was there on a Wednesday between Christmas & New Years and there was all of 20 people in the place. I went to 4 other bars and this was the most crowded one
