The front of Ramrod bar during the day featuring the two large stone lions by the front door.
Eight colorful condoms each inflated and over a cup around a lamp on the back patio of the bar. Red and blue streaming lasers over a crowded dance floor full of hot shirtless burly men dancing. Inside Ramrod from the corner of the main bar with the cages and a gothic candelabra in view. Inside the main entrance where a suit of armor is framed by a fireplace and stained glass window of a dragon. The back patio hall during the day showing the benches that hot sexy half naked men hang out on at night. The pool room surrounded by benches with a trough hanging above that acts as the light. Two gargoyles that surround the dancefloor and a laser shining on a picture of a Leatherman. Jail doors by the entrance that you have to navigate around to get to the dancefloor. Mysterious iron gate on a red wall with red light above that makes you wonder what lies beyond. The back patio bar during the day with the Leather Pride Flag hanging above.

Ramrod, started in 1994, has always been a heavy-duty cruise bar, and the Miami Herald says "the vibe is cool and friendly (no attitude here)... This is a man's bar. The decor is dark and gritty" in its own unique way. It was one of the first bars to jumpstart the north Fort Lauderdale / Wilton Manors gay district. It's customers are not all about leather... but Ramrod was voted world's Best Bar (Leather Category) by GayCities.com. and also the most famous International Mr. Leather Contest in Chicago has had Ramrod sponsored contestants capturing the title twice, winning second runner up twice as well; on the podium more than any other bar or organization. Ramrod's logo defines the club as a "levi, leather, uniform bar;" but on any given night you're bound to find musclebears, hunks, "butch" twinks / boys looking for daddys, and a mixture of anything and everything in between. If you don't feel like that suit and tie fits in-- just take it off-- 1/2 of the guys won't be wearing any shirt at all anyway.

Well known for it's over the edge music, which is enhanced by an infamous light show every Friday and Saturday after midnight, there's so much energy here that many people just move, grind, and dance everywhere. There's a DJ in the booth every night after 10pm, but find the Skull and Boner patio bar in the back yard for a more quiet place to cruise.

Back inside, whilst doing that endless search for Mr. Right (now) [or Wrong?!] in Ramrod's dark, medieval surroundings, the combination of erotic Ramrod videos, gargoyles, griffins, lions, dungeonesque jail cells and lighting fixtures, the Gothic to gritty atmosphere will lead you, as Guy Magazine says, "to the mysteries of the underground..." There's also a pool table in the western room, boot black station, and LeatherWerks bar store full of clothes, toys, and accessories to help you find your inner pig (oink!).

Speaking of pigs, check out the monthly Pig Dance the first Saturday of every month, headlined by world famous guest DJ's! It's one of the hottest and craziest events in town-- complete with an extra outside area that has two bars and various vendors. As one South Florida newspaper said, "If there's a line to get in, don't let it scare you, it's worth the wait." At the end of the night after cruising all the butch men you may just leave as stiff as the Knight of Armor by the fireplace, or as hard as a rock like the huge lions out front.
