From bartenders hopping on the bars to dance with customers to jukeboxes playing country music, these gay bars offer everything you could want in a night out. Some are as low-key as a Cheers while others are more over-the-top and sexy. Whatever the vibe, it's always best to go with a friend or three. That way, if you're feeling awkward about hitting on that guy sitting inches away from you, someone can step in to help break the ice.
One of the original Hell's Kitchen gay bars, this laid-back bar features a photo booth, old-school jukebox and a surprisingly comfortable atmosphere. It's a great spot to bring friends to for Bingo Mondays, Sexy Saturdays or Drag Race viewing parties.
Located in the heart of Hell's Kitchen, this bar has been around for over 30 years and still has a dingy but friendly feel to it. It's a great place to take friends for karaoke, trivia or any of the many other events they host.
The bar's front room is a place for mingling and cruising while the back room has DJs and more seating. They also have a pool table and plenty of space to dance with your buddies. The bartenders are very nice and there's a lot of good beer specials.
A Hell's Kitchen favorite, this bar has three distinct rooms for mingling, dancing and chatting. The front bar is a cash-only place while the back room has a mix of seating areas, a small dance floor and a pool table. The crowd here is mostly 20-30 and very diverse.
