Houston Press' Description
Ripcord has a reputation for being a "rough" bar thanks to its more than 25 years as Houston's premier "Leather and Levis" establishment and weekend nights can sometimes look like a reunion of the cast of Cruising. Go during the week, though, and you'll find much more of a neighborhood vibe. Thursday is classic rock night, a definition that seems to include everything from .38 Special to Television. Maybe not the place to bring your straight friends, since the scrotally enhanced painting over the stage seems to draw a line in the sand, but a great place to meet for drinks and good bar conversation in an attitude-free zone.
Tips from foursquare
have heard complaints about open racism re staff from quite a few people. but the music kicks ass!
TX leather experience most of that is 300 pounds men wearing leather or jock strap, drinks to strong, back room not pretty at night, dissent place to hang out with your manly buddies and play pool...
This is where you wear your leather. Besides the S&M vibe, it's actually a low-key place to play a game of pool with your pals. And to demonstrate how to successfully paddle someone.
Okay, found my watch - anyone see my elbow?
The racism crap is BS. Nobody likes the damn hustlers no matter what color they are. Quit spreading s&*t!
