1. Splash Bar
2. GYM Sportsbar
Manhunt: NYC's gay sports bar. FYI - Drinks are delicious but STRONG. Musclebear, bear, cub, older crowd mixed in with All-American Boy type - some actually there to watch sports.
3. The Eagle
Manhunt: Where there's a city with gays, there's an Eagle! Tip - The Eagle in NYC has an AWESOME roof deck that gets very crowded with burly boys. Check it out!
4. Ritz Bar & Lounge
Manhunt: One of the latest Happy Hours in the city ('til 9 PM). There's also a smallish outdoor area behind the dance floor area to cool off and get some evening air. PACKED on Friday and Saturday nights.
Manhunt: Popular with the Latino LGBT community. Younger crowd (18+).
6. Posh Bar & Lounge
Manhunt: Posh's DJ = awesome. They spin full cuts from pop albums as opposed to remixes and take requests.
Manhunt: Dark. Quirky. Cheap drinks. Did we mention cheap drinks?
8. Club 57
Manhunt: The return of the huugggeeee-ass danceclub. Saturday night is gay night. Shots, not drinks.
9. Industry Bar
Manhunt: Attracts HOT boys. FYI, bar is cash only. Drinks are priced reasonably. Bring your ladyfriends, they will appreciate the unisex bathroom.
10. Boxers NYC
Manhunt: Watch the game, try the pizza. Gets PACKED on weekends, so be experienced at maneuvering for drinks. Most of the barkeeps are straight, so flirting probably won't work.
11. Therapy NYC
Manhunt: Delicious drinks. Quirky, two-floor layout. Good place to pre-game before heading on to other places.
12. Pieces Bar
Manhunt: Drinks are cheap. There's porn bingo on Sundays, and beer pong on Thursdays. FUN!
13. XES Lounge
Manhunt: Crazy strong drinks at Happy Hour.
14. Stonewall Inn
Manhunt: The most famous gay bar in history. You've gotta stop in for at least one drink to say you've been. When marriage equality passed in NYC, this is where everyone came to celebrate.
Manhunt: Dive bar but the good kind. Nice wait staff, very good music if you're into stuff other than dance remixes and top 40 and pool.
Manhunt: They have 2 different happy hours every night. Two.
17. G lounge & Gallery
Manhunt: Here's the truth - G Lounge's bar staff is the bar staff we most want to do in NYC.
18. Boiler Room
Manhunt: Happy hour means well drinks that are 3 and change. Note - Lady Gaga is frowned upon on the jukebox. You've been warned.
19. Urge Lounge
Manhunt: Note the ass. Go-go dancers - WOOT. This is a dive bar. A gay dive bar. That's a good thing.
Manhunt: The variety of vodka is stunning, and we liked it because you can take your drink outside if the guy you're trying to trick with is a smoker and you want to keep chatting him up.
