As this new sign maybe not-so-gently reminds you: Pony is a gay bar. I know there's penis art covering every square inch of the place and half-naked go-go boys on the stripper pole—making it SEEM like the perfect party palace for your prenuptial last night of drunken freedom—but it's still a bar for queers. And in rapidly gentrifying Capitol Hill, this space is special (see also, the segment last Friday on KUOW called "Why Is Capitol Hill No Longer the Gay Epicenter of Seattle?"). All this said, I'd like to suggest Seattle's only all-male strip club, Stallions, just north of Ballard. Hooooo, baby! Now THOSE are horses that are ready for you to ride! recommended
