At most local gay bars, sports night is little more than one television tuned to the game. At Gym, enthusiasm for athletics runs deeper with leagues for cheerleading, hockey, and wrestling as well as the more expected teams in soccer, softball, and volleyball. On screens big and small, you’ll see rodeo specials on a night devoted to country music or playoff games during that stretch of the season. And whereas many straight counterparts tend to blind patrons in the glare of video light, Gym features many thoughtful design touches such as wide wood floor planks, exposed brick walls, and attractive black couches beside the clutch of sports trophies and a busy pool table. Big game days draw big numbers; so do the generous happy hours when everyone’s big-city attitude seems to fall a notch or two.
