“Are you big enough to run on Diesel?” The new bear bar has been open on 14th Ave for a week now but celebrated its grand opening Friday night. Below, you’ll find a selection of images of the new space and some of the fuzzy specimens who’ve visited.
When CHS talked to co-owner Mike Reis about his new project back in June, he told us he hoped Diesel would embody the spirit of Spags, the long time E Pike gay bar that became a “homebar” for bears in the 90s. Today, the Unicorn lives where Spags used to. “When Spags closed in summer 2000, we were just kind of lost,” Reis told CHS.
Diesel is located at 1413 14th Ave and is open 2-2 on weekdays and 11a-2a on Saturdays and Sundays. You can learn more at dieselseattle.com.
