Gay Dance Clubs on the Wane in the Age of Grindr

Westgay, a frisky gay dance party in the West Village, ended last summer when the building was sold to condominium developers.

PrettyUgly, a twink-filled dance party at the Diamond Horseshoe in Times Square, ended its run this year. New owners, new directions.

JB Saturdays, a party in Hell’s Kitchen that drew about 1,600 shirtless gay men every week for three years, stopped in January.

And in February, Escuelita, a Latin-flavored gay dance club that throbbed for decades near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, shuttered its doors after a liquor license dispute.
