Sash Bash! Mr. & Ms. Philadelphia Leather 2015!

Screen Shot 2015-01-11 at 4.48.36 AM

The Philadelphia Leather Contest will be held on Saturday, February 14, 2015 on the third floor of the Bike Stop at 206 S. Quince Street in Philadelphia, PA.

Many contests have claimed to be new and different, but this one really is.

You, the audience, will be witness to every activity and category that the contestants are judged on. No secret interviews behind closed doors influencing the final outcome.

You, the audience, will be able to cast your votes for your favorite contestants — and your votes will count in the final tally to help decide the winner.

You, the audience, will be a part of the event like never before!

And best of all, the contest will only run until 10pm – leaving you plenty of time afterwards to party with Philadelphians MC on the third floor at one of their infamous gear parties.

Strap on your hottest gear, grab all your friends, and bring your cellphones so you can cast your vote online and help decide the winner.

Limited seating will be available on the third floor. Everyone will be able to watch the contest on the TV monitors located on every floor in the bar except the basement.

See you in February!

NYE 2014!

EQUMEN 482We’ve gotten a lot of calls this week asking what the cover is for NYE at the Bike Stop, and we had to think about it quite a bit. There are a lot of options out there- Boxers, Briefs, Thongs, Boxerbriefs… As long as you’re covered, right?

Other than that, there is no cover tonight, so come on out, bring your party pants and ring in 2015 with us!

Farewell, Argos


We just heard the news that Europe’s oldest Leather Bar is closing it’s doors for the last time on 2nd January, 2015. Located in the heart of Amsterdam’s famous Red Light District, the Argos has been in operation since the 1950s and will be sorely missed.

We say it all the time, but when a Leather Bar closes, it doesn’t grow back. Our thoughts are with the staff of the Argos and the countless Leatherman who’ve passed through it’s doors.

Sweet Baby Jesus!


We like beer.
We like chocolate.
We like peanut butter.
Now, thanks to the fine folks at DuClaw, we can have it ALL!

Sweet Baby Jesus is a 6.50% abv Porter that’s a confection lover’s dream.
It hits the Stop tonight, so come try one. Or two. Or three!

Elf on the Shelf!


It’s that time of year again!
The ‘Stop finally unleashed the Mad Elf!
It’s a holiday tradition here- one that’s only available while supplies last- to start slingin’ Troeggs Brother’s MAD ELF on December 1st. But since I couldn’t wait a day longer, I snuck a few bottles here and there for your drinking pleasure.

This crazy elf packs a punch and will be gone before you know it, so come on in and start your holiday season right!

Gobble Gobble! We’re open Thanksgiving!

as1903There’s only one thing I love more than cartoon turkeys in Pilgrim hats…
And that’s being able to cheer on the EAGLES at the ‘Stop on Thanksgiving Day!
For that, we’re going to open up the bar so you folks can join us!

AJ will be opening the main bar at 4pm so get in early, grab a seat and get ready to rumble!

Naughty or Nice?


Ho Ho Hos!
Our friend (and Mid-Atlantic Leather boy) boy Quinton is going to be decking the halls of the Bike Stop with holiday cheer on Saturday 22nd November!

As the temperature drops here in Philadelphia it’s critical that our LGBT brothers and sisters who can’t afford proper Winter clothing have access to coats, gloves, scarves and hats. Quinton is going to be doing a 50/50 raffle, tasty Jell-o shots and a special Christmas edition of ‘Stuff the Stocking/jock’ to raise funds to make sure that everyone stays warm this season. 9pm-2am on the Main floor of the Bike Stop.

Gear is most certainly welcome: Leather, Levis, Western, Military…. and we’ll even have a bootblack on site to make sure your boots are polished to perfection.
