Still rough and ready after all these years
An Eagle to nearly rival San Francisco's in terms of leather history and nostalgia as experienced and felt by the surviving men of a certain generation, this fixture of the Warmoesstraat for decades shared a clientele with the Argos across the street, up until the latter's demise in January 2015. As with the Argos in its final years, the Eagle struggles to maintain its status as a 'leather bar' in an era of increasingly relaxed and casual personal presentation and expression, though it continues to provide sexy spaces and hideaways in which to cruise and play. A manly-style bar on three levels, two of which offer opportunites and facilities in which to get down and dirty, the Eagle shares a history with nearby Dirty Dicks in that during their 1980/90s heyday they were owned by the same man, Paul Wierks (1949–2010), and, since 2011, are run by the same man (Michael). The skeleton of the building dates from the late 15th century. Leather and rubber are the priorities here, but by necessity the bar fully embraces the increasingly wide spectrum of sexual needs and fetishes of younger generations. Themed evenings include regular Friday party Men Inc., borrowed from Eagle London. Plus two safe-sex parties that started elsewhere: ncAdam (Naked Club Amsterdam) —a four-hour naked-only safe sex party (first Sunday of the month 3pm–7pm), previously at the now-defunct Argos, then the also sadly gone WareHouse. And Horsemen & Knights — a four-hour naked/underwear party for the well-endowed and their followers (third Sunday of the month 3pm–7pm), previously at the WareHouse. See http://www.horsemen.nl/.
