New York Bars & Hangouts
Part of a chain of clubs that also have residencies in Chicago and Miami, Crobar is a superclub that harks back to the heyday of New York clubbing. The bar area at the front of the club has some seating and a small stage, but it’s the cavernous dance floor and its balconies that grab the attention. Other highlights include an art gallery and a mock subway tunnel that fits in with the old school atmosphere. The music is as diverse as the crowd, ranging from house to hip-hop depending on the night.

Beauty Bar, once a hair salon and sister to the equally quirky Barmacy, is one of the most amusing and kitsch drinking and sometime-clubbing experiences in the city. Kick back in an old barber’s chair, slip your head beneath a 1960s hairdryer and order yourself a good strong cocktail.

Starlight Bar and Lounge
One of the most popular and trendy gay venues in New York, the Starlight is a funky mix of Chelsea boys and East Village artistes. A crowded bar area gives way to a mellow back room to sit and relax with friends. There are DJs every night of the week from 10pm. Highlights include Friday’s mix of dance and soulful house and Saturday’s eclectic hotch-potch of pop, dance and R&B. Wednesdays boast a comedy night and Sunday nights is Ladies Night – one of the most popular lesbian nights in the city.
