About the San Francisco Eagle

In at least nine countries and 15 U.S. states, you can find the Eagle.

In Montreal, it’s called L’Aigle Noir; in Minneapolis, it’s the Eagle Bolt Bar; in New Orleans, it’s a room above another bird bar. But all of these places are unmistakably the Eagle: A family of gay bars with no formal relationship.

The SF Eagle has been an important meeting spot for folks for some 35 years existing South of Market… welcoming everyone… from leather lovers to lesbians, and Pups and Growlr fans alike… the Cigar lovers too and even a Bear or two… you’ll find a melting pot of the abstract and the queer, and much more you might not expect here.

The bar and patio located at 398 12th Street has long been a special place, not only to the LGBT community, but to the entire community for decades, not to mention the live music community as well.
