The Eagle was the first of these bars to open, back in 1998 - it's open nightly and especially popular for happy hour in the late afternoon. Off the back of the bar is a good-size heated patio, which also has access to Bolt Video Bar. In 2003, the owners opened Bolt Video Bar, and a year later, they added the rather industrial-feeling Bolt Underground on the basement level - both of these spaces have dance floors, and they're open Wednesday through Sunday. Sundays are a particularly big event at this cruisy compound - in the morning, the Eagle kicks things off with a Bloody Mary brunch. Then at 4 pm, there's an "all you can swallow" beer bust held at both the Eagle and the Bolt. Once a month, the Bolt Underground has an underwear party, and there are also leather (dress code enforced) parties on a monthly basis. If you're objective is meeting guys with the potential for a hookup, this is probably the best gay venue in the Twin Cities.
