A friendly, no-attitude neighborhood gay bar with a particularly loyal following among bears and cubs, C.C. Attle's
(1501 E. Madison St.
) opened in the early '90s and has, along with its casual restaurant Cadillac Grill, been a fixture of Capitol Hill's gay cruise seen ever since. Dinner (simple, stick-to-your-rib pub fare - burgers, turkey melts, chicken-fried steak) is served nightly, and there's also brunch available on weekends throughout the afternoon.
C.C.'s is home to the Northwest Bears and stages an official "bear night" the first Saturday of each month, but you'll always find a pretty bearish bunch here, tending toward age 35 and up. The bar used to be affiliated with C.C. Slaughter's in Portland, but I don't believe this is the case any longer - the two bars aren't particularly similar in clientele or theme, other than both being gay clubs.
