      Bill Bernhard's desire
      Coming out gay and being new to the scene I visited Ripcord and found it to be a nice place to meet guys wiling to show me the ropes so I recommend it to anyone visiting Houston and wanting to get into the scene you will not be disappointed.

      Great leather bar in town
      Ripcord is a great bar. Nice, chill atmosphere. The bartenders are great, if you get a chance, check out Christopher Barry, he's the best. They're always having events from guest djs, rewind to the 70s-00s, to leather, and they even host geeks who drink on Wednesday's at 830 pm. They also host an art gallery which you can purchase. Over the years this bar has vastly improved with awesome friendly staff and the upkeep. Definitely worth checking out if you're into the leather scene and need a place to catch a few drinks.

      One word.... TIRED!!
      Rude Bartenders, no personality and they could care less if you want a drink... Leave your personal baggage and crappy attitude at home!! People come out to have a good time and spend money. Which..on the good side, well its a hit and miss these days and the music..not so good... Re-staff and spruce it up.. people do look up at the ceilings...

      They claim to be "The Leather" bar in Houston, but it's always dead. The bartenders look like death warmed over - thank god we have Eagle on sundays

      Great space if it would see a little TLC
      Like this bar, the layout, great patio. But I agree with the others, it really could use a little bit of work put into it. It's really a plain old leather levi type hangout bar that you would expect in small town America. For Houston is should be a little more exciting. But the crowd is fun. Patio is fun. Restroom is fun. Pool tables, darts, touch screen games, pinball. With just a little money and some elbow grease, they could really kick up the sexiness of the cruisey atmosphere and keep the hot guys there all night instead of just drive by's.

      The crowd is definitely friendly here, the bartenders not so much. The patio is NOT that clean, and anyone who thinks so hasn't seen it in daylight. How hard would it be to hose it down once in a while? Obviously they are not spending money or taking time to make this place as nice as it could be. In many ways a typical bar. The crowd shows up at 11 pm, at off times you may find yourself bored unless you are looking for activity outside.
