The name may be slightly ambiguous, suggesting that perhaps the spot is a dwelling place for sandy stoners, but the first thing you'll see upon entering Dudes is a black-and-white poster of a gorgeous young man sliding his briefs down farther below his ripped abs than a Calvin Klien ad would allow. This doorman sets the proper mood to enjoy more of the same on the TV screens and to sip signature drinks like "Blackbeard on a Diet" with other stimulated fellows at the bar or in the more secluded sofa areas. As patrons mingle, the nightly entertainment escalates the mood. The happy hour piano player starts things off and is followed by dancers and a drag show on Fridays. Dudes is an excellent place to be a dude... if you're into dudes.
