      Always seems empty when over the Summer. Where is everyone?
      The few times I've been there over the Summer, it's always painfully devoid of people. Everyone can't be away in P-Town every weekend. How does the bar stay open without people? They don't seem to have theme events to draw people in. Boston bars always seem empty now. The glory days long gone. What happened?

      The East Coast Tenderloin!
      I've been to some great places before, but this tops all of them. And I thought the San Francisco Tenderloin was great.

      Lately this place has completely died. Very sad. Would like to see it pick up again, since it's a decent space and the bartenders are the friendliest in town. There is one extremely hot new bartender upstairs, a Brazilian guy I think with an incredible ass. He's worth just showing up for. Don't believe the line about a leather code. There's just not enough people going here to support any restrictions. There used to be a very popular karaoke on Thursdays, but it's just deserted now.

      Love the Ramrod. I remember when the backroom was the backroom. Great leather crowd.

      RAMROD is no longer
      Sure the name is there, but no leather and no dress code strictly enforced. Check out their website Friday night is now Latino night and has been for months.

      Not on Mondays
      Ramrod was extremely well lit. Went to the back bar since the bartender had no other customers. Gave a good vantage spot to see who comes in not only Ramrod, but Machine also, since they are actually the same bar. Lot of security guys patrolling the small crowd upstairs. Didn't have the stomach to go downstairs after seeing a steady parade of drag queens and gender fucks marching down the stairs.

      Not what it was.
      Bartenders are awesome and the drinks strong, but it has lost its charm. It needs a makeover STAT!!! When there are leather events it is a must go!! If not it's a pass. If you wear harness and gear you will get more stares because they rarely wear it. Those who do (locals) should not!!! Music is awesome best nights Friday and Saturday. Go downstairs for more fun.

      Prefer the downstairs @ Ramrod
      Downstairs @ Ramrod is not really a leather bar although still technically part of Ramrod; guys intermingle from Machine the disco portion of the club and is filled with pool tables. I like hanging out here with a beer and people watching on Friday nights.

      This bar is fun later in the night. Leather is only inforced in the back room. Looking for mr. Right now? This is the place for you

      Not like it used to be....
      IF there is a local leather club event going on, then you'll see a nice selection of leather. Even the expected busiest nights (Fri&Sat) is more and more of the lookie-loo boys from Machine downstairs with their female friends which come up to visit. No more dress code requirement, that is for sure. The BEST positive of the place is that a most of the bartenders are friendly. Music is typically good with a different genre for the night. It does make for a decent place to have a slow-night late evening drink.

      A REAL Leather Bar!
      when your traveling, you need to always have an extra suitcase for leather, cowboy, cashmere sweater and sport coat. We put on our leather and had a great time at this bar. Back rooms are HOT! Just go with the flow and enjoy yourself. Actually it was one of the best leather bars we have been to in the last 5 years.
