    Widely considered the birthplace of the gay rights (shh, don't tell them about Julius!), this place was completely renovated and opened under new ownership after the riots, but it's a great bar.

    The most fun I've had in New York. Everyone is friendly. The drinks are cheap and you never know who you'll run into. Such an incredible place.

    Even though it is a historical symbol of gay movement, it is also a friendly and normal bar for you to hangout no matter who u r. The bartender is nice and might touch ur face at some point=]

    Great bar except when the Hetero Breeders come in and "pretend" to be down with the cause... Go to your own bar and let us gays have our own thing for once..

    Worth dipping into for the history. Not the best bar in the hood tho. Great place to get beaten at pool by a lesbian.

    The fact that it ties into the other club on the block via the back passage way is nice. The shitty pool table needs a refurbish. The shows and events are great for pastime.

    I cant believe this has turned into a straight hangout. Was in on a Saturday night and it was full of young staight people making out. They probably dont even know what that place stood for.

    A very important place to visit as part of the LGBT community. This is where pride began. 🏳️‍🌈 You’ll finds many pool playing lesbians here.

    In light of recent attacks against gay men in NYC, I urge you to be aware of your surroundings as you leave until you get home. Buddy up, stay aware, stay safe!

    Lots of lezzies here, but the once-a-month Collider party with Damian and @DaveHuge is a pretty hip cub adventure.

    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.

    It’s a legendary bar but it’s stuck in its past. Not in a good way.

    Holy Homohistory Batman! Yes it's THE place the Queers fought back. Always changing music & scene but drinks & friendly atmosphere persist.

    We stopped in just because it's a historical landmark. Had a decent time. Wasn't really all that impressed.

    We were thrilled to visit this historic place. It's just a cute little dive at this point, but one that I love so much due to it's place in history. Great value for your dollar on drinks!

    Friday is Karaoke Night from 5pm until 10pm. So much fun, very casual, and totally worth the trip. Go and escape from reality for a bit with booze and singing.

    The stretch of Christopher St in front of Stonewall is the go-to gathering spot for NYers anytime something gay/political happens. So much history here.

    A historic monument! It's still a little divey and a little messy, and friendly for all people, including lgbtq allies!

    Don't trip when approaching the bar, there is a thing there that I've tripped over a couple of times. Don't forget that sometimes the second floor is open and a full bar is upstairs as well!

    Like many of the gay men in the West Village this is an icon that is starting to show its age but is still a fun time.
