  • Barracuda

    A perennial contender for NYC’s Best Gay Bar, Barracuda is an unpretentious dive, low key and quiet enough for an actual conversation instead of thumping club music, except for the weekends and late night, when it can get packed. The décor is traditional enough, with low lights and... More >>

  • Marie's Crisis

    A West Village favorite, Marie’s Crisis is a small, often crowded piano bar that specializes in old classics and show tunes. By all accounts, drinks are cheap and strong, often resulting in late night sing-a-longs with the performers. It’s not the place to go if you’re... More >>
