Gay Nightlife in New York City

Grab a drink and grab a local.

Flaming Saddles Saloon

This ain’t your grandpa’s gay cowboy bar. With a mix of country and pop on the jukebox and bartenders in cowboy hats dancing on the bar tables, it’s like Coyote Ugly for people who like staring at hot dudes.

Stairs Bar

XL Nightclub

In the basement of a fabulous hotel (literally, it’s gay) is an even more fabulous club (also gay). Flashing lights, loud music and chiseled abs is all you really need to hear to understand the clientele.

XES Lounge

The club tagline says it all: “No attitude, sexy bartenders and strong drinks.”

Uncle Charlie's Lounge

Depending on the day, you can hear everything from club beats to piano solos. Check out their calendar to see which night matches your taste in music and men.

Ty’s

The older gays get, the friendlier they get. The scene here is more leather and bear, but everyone is welcome to have cheap drink and just relax for once.

Townhouse

A classy cocktail bar for older gentleman and those who love a mature man (or his money). It’s not for everyone, but you don’t stop being gay at a certain age.

Tool Box

A little older, a lot dumpier, but at the right time, it’s a place to cruise and explore the “basement.”  Any place that touts its display of porno is suspect.

Therapy

Ultra loungy, svelte, and trendy, it’s the place to be in Hell’s Kitchen. No dancing, just strong drinks, lingering looks, and done-up boys boys boys.

The Ritz

A popular (sometimes too popular) bar and lounge. When in Hell’s Kitchen, it’s where to go to see, be seen, and dance—all in one place.
