The 1100 Club was a moderately popular bar, moreso with the leather community although it didn't fit the traditional model of a levi/leather bar. 1100 Club was a friendly place that held any number of shows and similar events, and this is where the leather community embraced it: it was a good venue for leather man title contests and similar events for the leather community.

More information about this business is welcomed from anyone who can contribute it.
