Reliable leather-friendly non-leather bar for tapering on
A generously sized and tastefully brick-walled space with a determinedly darkened basement, Prinzknecht has a slightly provincial feel in terms of both music and clientele. But it's great as an early-evening start to a night of serious cruising, with a 2-for-1 drinks deal for two hours on Wednesdays. Gets very buzzy out front in the summer, especially during Folsom Europe in September. Owned by Karl-Heinz 'Kalle' Klatt, whose CV also includes the adjacent Connection sex shop/cinema and neighbouring Connection club, and nearby established leather haunt Mutschmann's [see entries], plus the now-defunct SM hotel the Kinky Tulip. Opened 1999.
