Location

    • Too crowded...and stinky
      way way too crowed and extremely stinky...I guess the Bear/Cub crowd doesn't wear aftershave, colonge and or deoderant..Too bad..probably won't be back...later

      Great Saturday night!
      Pumpjack is the place for the over 35 crowd to go to avoid the snobbish Millennials at other area clubs & have a great time. Good, friendly crowd on Saturday nights, great music & strong drinks! My Saturday night hangout place!

      Facelift..of sorts
      The place is bigger, no longer smells like urine but regret still seems to be around. Home of the Leather Face! Even the baseball cap can't hide that one.

      bartender will screw your money
      Went to Vancouver for 2014 gay pride , I found this bar is quite interesting, people are friendly, so I was hanging out there for 3 days. The every last day I was there, I gave bartender $20 CND for one beer, he gave me $4.5 back, then left right way, I looked at the change, I knew that he may be made a mistake, as I knew I have got ride all the changes and 10 dollar bill at lunch, only had 3 $20 CND bills in my pocket. So when he came back I ask him how much is the beer, he told me $5.5, at same time, he open the register and took $10 CND out right way, I said to him that I don’t have 10 Dollar CND in my pocket. He said to me that I gave him $10CND, if he does run the register, it will show that I gave him $10CND. He sound like that I’m trying to get a free drink. I stood there and really felt that I should let someone run the register. I went to ask another bartender, wondering who is the manager on duty and I would like to speak to the manager, this way, I won’t have any argument with that bartender. He came over and won’t let me talk to his co-worker, he told me that he has run the register, I only gave him $10 CND, now he wants me to leave. I told him that I would like speak to the manager and run the register, he said that he is the manager and want me leave the bar. I didn’t leave and told me if he wants to leave, he has to get police here. He called police and police ask me to go another bar (Fountainhead). I felt that I was really humiliated by this bartender. At this point, I truly believe he wants screw my money, as he knew I’m here traveling, after I questioned him, he doesn’t want me to tell anyone what was happened. I gave it one star, because it is fun bar, I would recommend to go there, but really be careful some bartender will take vantage of you, so get small bills or pay credit card for your drink.

      Huge change!
      PumpJack has acquired next door property and renovated it to be ....drum roll .... a Dance Floor!!! Gays that danced stopped going out after the Odyssey shut down. Well now the word is spreading that the old lounge like Pumpjack has dancing. Enjoy it cuz it will be overwhelmed soon when everyone comes out again. PS - the old $14 to 20 cover charges have been rolled back too. Junction is only 5 and PumpJack has no cover. UPDATE August 30 2014 - had nasty experience here that tells me staff need more training - wake up Pumpjack manager!

      Was there for pride...
      Had a fantastic time. Very friendly crowd and it was usually quite busy. I'm a sucker for daddy bears and I was NOT disappointed! So many hot guys and all of them were quite friendly. I will be back. Only complaint is I wish they could keep the back patio open later but I get the noise issue.

      Nice enough but...
      Decent service and down to earth crowd - the wall to wall pistachio (?) shells all over the floor were a bit of a worry! Seriously, kids. 'Butch' and 'broom' are not mutually exclusive concepts!

      Not bad but why does this place smell funny??
      This place serves it's clientele (older leather guys and bears) and it's not half bad (fun for a quick drink and some pool) but could use a renovation and some cleaning. It always smells funny inside (the way that I imagine bathhouses smell right after being soiled.)
