The Silverado struts with its head held high, its balls proudly on display, and the tip of a string of anal beads hanging out of its ass waiting to be pulled. No matter how far other gay bars evolve in Portland, the Silverado will always be the central location for scandal, drama, sex, debauchery, and wicked stories you won't even tell your closest friends about. Cruising is practically mandatory. If your body cries out for attention it will receive attention in abundance whether you like it or not – attention of the grabby-hands variety. This is currently the only club in Portland where there are male strippers every night. Because of the strippers, females tend to come here in hoards, which means the staff and patrons tend to be especially mean to women in a vain attempt to ward them off. This is a gay club, ladies. We're sorry you don't have your own male strip club to go to. We know you have money, but seriously, this is a gay bar for gay men. Just saying.
