Looking for a good place to hang out and meet people, without the "club" feel of Trexx. Anyone know of some other gay bars?

Rain is a small gay bar. More of a bar scene then a club scene

Um, I just drove by that faggotty place. Looks out of biz now. Even the signs are gone. You know, the ones that read "QUEEN PARKING ONLY" and RAIN LOUNGE.

Looks like the small sign on the door reads "ReHAB." I can think of plenty of ways to rehab folks from their perverted, sad, self-indulgent homosexual lifestyle....

You poor thing.
Your words reek of paranoia.
You don't have to be afraid.

The lifestyle isn't contagious,
but I must admit it can be rather catchy.

Not to worry though, no one,s going to reach out and grab you, or tie you up... that is unless you decide you want to play that that way.

Rain has relocated to North Geddes Street. Does anyone here know of any other gay places besides Rain and Trexx?

Ryan's Someplace Else was one of Syracuses best bars ever too bad it closed. Why it closed I never heard.

OMG! This is going back many, many years. I think it closed down in the early 1990's. Everybody used to go there. I think the reason it closed down is because there was another bar called "Screamers" that opened up a few blocks away that took away all their business. Screamers is also long gone. I had good times at both of them. Ryan's was one of the first gay placed I had ever been to. I remember before they were on Pearl Steet they had moved from a location on Clinton Square. There was also another small place a block away called "Cissy's". Does anyone remember that bar. Those days are long gone, but they were such fun!

I also remember another bar that was mostly a social bar called the Bunk House.

How long does it take to scrub the AIDS out of a closed gay bar? The bathrooms must be awful.

I went to Ryan's Someplace Else back in 1987. I found
the people there very rude,and snooty,including the
bartenders,and the waiters! One time I
showed up there in a white t-shirt & jeans,and this
nasty fag hag comes up to me and says "Didn't I see
you at the Bunk House?",then she,and the deejay that
worked there at the time started laughing at me.
Horrible place!

Those were the days.. it was spring of 1994 actually had I known he was gonna play for the NFL I would have let him nail my booty too!

many of the football players actually hung out there.. and Lots of basket ball players as well There was NO other place for them to pick up men discretely There was No real internet to speak of and the sleazy places that were there nobody went to them.. Ryans was a not at all sleazy, and the laurel tree was the lesbian bar I remember it being like an old wooden Victorian house turned into a nightclub.. what fun great music and the women were super friendly then there was candys restaurant small intimate place with great .. no really great food I guess not much is going on in that town lately from what Ive heard but it's a different time and those days are long gone.

I use to go to screamers after hours.
I wanted to know how to get some of the music from that time period. Maybe talk to the DJ from that time. lvsbikers on bear411

Check the Dance charts around the time you went there (month/year).
It could give you some idea on how to find those dance songs.
