Boardwalk Bar is a site that streams live shows from a Ft. Lauderdale, Florida strip club. While the physical bar is open seven days a week, the virtual bar operates from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Sunday through Friday and until 3 a.m. on Saturdays. The website boasts 35+ male dancers from all around the world, and these guys range in their twenties and early thirties, and they're well-built with gym-fit bodies. The site was a part of the Badpuppy network, then they left, but now they're back again, so we wanted to head back and take a fresh look.

The performers are what you'd expect from erotic male dancers; they have athletic to muscular bodies and are good looking. I saw a variety of men - Caucasian, black and Latino. The guys are often introduced by a drag performer, then one of the performers appears on the stage in shorts, underwear, a jockstrap or swim suit, and he dances for a few minutes. I see on the tour that they advertise guys in towels on Saturdays and shadow dancing on Sundays. Unfortunately, the guys don't take it all off, but sometimes they flash us their bare butts.

When you log in, you're taken to the members homepage where you'll see a number of different cameras listed on the left (two on the stage, one in the foyer and one in a cage). There's also a selection to see cams on Roku; then there are Bonus selections on the right, but we'll talk about these later. As I mentioned, the cameras are live afternoon through night time when you'll be able to watch the live bar shows that run from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. (or until 3 a.m. on Saturdays). However, when there's no live show running, you have the option of watching the latest 11 recorded shows, but more about that in a minute.

The stage cams give you a front and rear view of a male dancer, the foyer cam seems to be nothing more than a view of the bar floor and a part of the bartender's area where you'll see people sitting at tables or walking around. The cage camera will give you a show of whatever guy is shaking his bootie in the cage off the main stage. You can watch the shows or videos on your computer or mobile device, and you can catch them on your Roku. I don't have Roku, so I can't tell you anything about what you get.

During the hours outside of the live shows, you can watch a selection of 11 streaming videos from the previous Saturday night or special event, but really you'll get the most out of the site in the evenings when the dancers are live. Those 11 recorded shows play in a streaming player at 360x274. They're clear enough, but they're small so you don't get the detail I'd like to see. You can use the full-screen option, and you may like them better this way, even if they lose some a noticeable amount of sharpness and clarity. As well, past shows aren't archived in any way, so aside some these 11 shows, this is really a site that you'll want to experience live.

When there are live shows happening you can watch them by clicking any of the two stage cams or the cage camera and a second viewer pops up above the one I just described for the archive shows. The live show plays at 360x274, which I found too small to get much out of, and in fact, if the performer is dancing at either end of the stage he often disappears out of sight. Using the full-screen option gives you a better view of the show, but you also sacrifice picture quality, which wasn't great to begin with. As well, when I visited, the live shows were visual only, there was no sound. I don't know if this always the case, but there was a note saying the shows didn't have sound.

There are also some picture galleries under the Bonus section on the navbar (or on the right side of the members homepage), and this is the only place where you'll see any of the dancers naked. There are 54 picture sets with around 20 or more pictures each, but none of the galleries feature any information about the guys - not even their names. The pics display from 400x600 to 600x900 and appear to be digital stills; they're decent quality and show off the guys nicely. You can right-click and save pictures individually but there's no downloadable zip files. Once you enlarge a picture you can use the forward and back controls on the viewer to continue browsing, but there's no hands-free slideshow. There are 22 more picture galleries in the Archive section, which is found in a section underneath the model picture galleries. These are small, displaying at 334x500, and I believe these are purchased stock photos and not dancers from the bar.

Broadwalk Bar is a part of the Badpuppy network, so you'll also get access to Badpuppy, Club Amateur USA and a huge selection of third-party videos feeds. You're easily looking at access to over 3,000 more videos and a catalog of erotic stories, too. So there's plenty of solo and hardcore gay sex videos to keep you busy mornings and early afternoons when those live bar cams are dark.

Not everything is perfect on Boardwalk Bar. The biggest problem for me is the live show streams and recorded videos play at a small size and there's no full nudity. Next, the non-recurring month membership is a whopping $20 more than the recurring monthly membership. There are also some navigation issues. For instance, if you have logged in with your membership and you happen to click the Home or Events selections on the navigation bar, you're taken back outside the members area and clicking back to any of the cameras will require you to log in again. There's a VOD link on the navigation bar that takes you to AEBN, an online gay porn theater that isn't included in your membership. 

A couple last things worth mentioning. There's no model section where we can see profiles of the dancers. And while Beefcakes might seem like something you'd want to click and look at, it's actually the food menu for patrons who are visiting the physical Boardwalk Bar, we virtual visitors don't have any use for it.

Boardwalk Bar lets you ogle exotic male dancers in a real bar located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, but it gets a mixed review from me. Live shows only happen every evening; when the dancers aren't live you can only check out 11 archived shows, so there's not really a lot to do here. I wish the show window was bigger and the streaming quality was better, but it is fun to watch the guys shake it live. The biggest draw here is that your membership gives you access to the Badpuppy network where you'll find over 3,000 solo and hardcore sex videos. So you can take in the live bar shows from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. and you also can see what new videos have been added to Badpuppy.
