While this favorite gay bar may have moved in 2005 (the space was previously inhabited by The Hole), its knowingly-corrupt spirit is still willfully intact. A litany of cheeky riffs on its own name (visit for the "Happy Cock Hour" and you might later be featured on the bar's website in "Happy Cock Shots" photos) combined with weekly dance parties featuring guest DJs ("electro-figurehead" Man Parrish is a regular) have made this grungy spot into an area institution. Glittery go-go boys and cheap, strong drinks (served in seemingly-ironic plastic cups) appear to be in the hands of all patrons. --Mallory Stuchin
