  • I hear the downstairs is the place for action.... Hehe
  • Love this place
  • neeze or you'll give someone your cold in this closet with bar privilages. Drinks are killer and so are some of the conversations from locals that have imbibed one too many. That jukebox is tops
  • Perry is the best, very attentive and drinks are excellently priced. Only gay bar on UES! Come on in for a good time with the UES locals.
  • I wish I were a gay man just so I could beat Billy out of being the mayor! Enjoy your club boys!
  • Billy is awesome!! Best gay bar in the city!
  • Strong cheap drinks but the locals can be a little rude and unfriendly.
  • No fair, Billy. You can't be mayor if you work there!
  • Drink Specials till 10pm. $3 Miller High Life after midnight
  • Very friendly staff, Perry is awesome!
  • SUPER reasonably priced drinks, RuPaul's Drag Race viewing parties, incredibly friendly clientele, and drag bingo, all crammed into a space the size of a studio apartment... what else do you want?
  • Still one of my faves when hanging out with my friend Dean Super chill vibe.
  • Awesome low key karaoke night
  • Bartenders are so friendly
  • Where the bloody Mary's at these days! Great addition for a Sunday hangover
  • Friendly staff and customers. Love how it's always low key
  • Don't waste a Saturday night here, but still good to socialize with friends
  • Jake the Fri/ Sat bartender is the hottest!
  • Happy Hour 8pm - 10pm. Two for one drinks $3 can beer all night
  • Billy is awesome and that Bingo bitch Dylan can't be beat!!!!!
