Contest winner

The Bonk prize, for best gay bar name, goes to Ian Preston, for Cockpit, as a rival to Mineshaft and Toolbox in combining a phallic symbol and an omphalic symbol in a name that also evokes a high-masculinity social context.

    From Ian Preston, more suggestions, though not quite of Cockpit quality:

    Log Cabin? Wood Hut? Tube Station? Pipe Shaft? (The last reusing “shaft” but as the omphalic term)
