Ramrod, started in 1994, has always been a heavy-duty cruise bar, and the Miami Herald says "the vibe is cool and friendly (no attitude here)...This is a man's bar. The decor is dark and gritty" in its own unique way. It was one of the first bars to jumpstart the north Fort Lauderdale/Wilton Manors gay district. It's customers are not all about leather... but Ramrod was voted world's Best Bar (Leather Category) by GayCities.com. and also the most famous International Mr. Leather Contest in Chicago has had Ramrod sponsored contestants capturing the title twice, winning second runner up twice as well; on the podium more than any other bar or organization. Ramrod's logo defines the club as a "levi, leather, uniform bar;" but on any given night you're bound to find musclebears, hunks, "butch" twinks/boys looking for daddys, and a mixture of anything and everything in between. If you don't feel like that suit and tie fits in-- just take it off-- 1/2 of the guys won't be wearing any shirt at all anyway.
