Best Gay-Men-Under-30 Scene (2008)

G Lounge

For all that they do, most Manhattan bars—even the painfully sleek, effete G lounge—make socializing less than comfortable if you aren't rocking a six-figure salary, some Gucci-something, and a body courtesy of countless years of Deca cycles. Starlight Lounge has managed to remain a heavenly oasis of good vibes thanks to three constant, refreshing features: (1) the sound system's purring thump of smoothly mixed deep house, from which you will never hear Whitney or Cher; (2) gorgeous guys of every stripe who care more about how you can dance than how much you can bench-press; and (3) the downright alluring lighting, which seems to ease the most nervous little wallflower into a comforted smile.
