More of a museum than a bar at this point, the Stonewall Inn is an open door into the history of the West Village. In 1969, the bar was the site of the infamous Stonewall riots, which became a catalyst for the gay-rights movement in the United States. Today, the walls are lined with photos marking the Stonewall Inn's historical significance. It's still a popular spot, too--DJs play regularly, and the calendar is always full of special events, ranging from karaoke to drag queen nights. The warm interior hasn't changed, and two floors provide welcome changes in scenery. Both the bartenders and regulars are always willing to give a history lesson. The Stonewall Inn turns a night out into an educational experience. --Gabriel Herrera
