We attempted this bar about 5 times, and it wasn't busy any time we went. Nice enough staff, but it looks and feels dirty. But, in all due defence to them, if you are into older "leather' type guys, then you should be ok here.

This is a great little leather bar and very busy on the weekends also a great place to stop in and get a reasonably priced drink on other nights

I've been to the Tool Shed on several occasions and always have a great time! The staff are very friendly, the drinks are well made and the DJ keeps the atmosphere upbeat and sexy. It's smaller inside that's no deterrent.
