The oldest bar in the West Village and the oldest gay bar in the city, Julius's (circa 1870) has always been popular with the "interesting"ai.e., arty, mixedadowntown crowd. By the late '30s, when Greenwich Village's boho fabulosity peaked (see The Young and Evil

by Charles Henri Ford and Parker Tyler for a bawdy, unapologetic view of "the life"), Julius's was the hot spot for outrA(c) village types, slumming socialites, and newspapermen. Somehow this charming diveathickly hung with fading newspaper clippings and PR photos of starlets, jocks, and thoroughbredsasurvived both the buttoned-down '50s and the swinging '60s intact. Today, Julius's is home to what is politely called a "mature" crowd of gentlemen and their admirers. Naturally, the jukebox is a diva lover's dream. Drop in soon for one of Julius's legendary burgers and the best super-dry manhattan (a bargain at $6) you'll find south of the Algonquin.
