    Come here with your boys for some drunken fun at their Happy Hour from 10pm to 4am when well drinks are $3.75 and the cheesy & fun pop music is blasting.

    Great laid back bar and the $3.50 drinks can't be beat! Its a bit of a random crowd though and will skew older, so keep that in mind. Great place to pre-game before going to your ultimate destination

    The Boiler Room is a ‘big enough,’ nice neighborhood bar, with a nice mix of guys from young twinks to daddies, all relaxing together. Very friendly and warm crowd and bartender. 4 WOOFS

    NewNowNext.com called it one of the best bars for husband hunting. Not sure about that, but the drinks are cheap and the music is decent when queens don't colonize the jukebox all night.

    Awesome bar. But their gagafree jukebox that is dictated by a bartender's remote is disrespectful, ignorant, and especially upsetting when britney's 'songs' are allowed to play in their entirety.

    Great place to start your weekend nights: cheap, strong drinks. Not a bad place to return to later in the night when you want to wind down after a club.

    One of my favorite bars in all of NYC. But when they turn gaga off and let katy perry and ke$ha play, it's wrong in so many Chelsea ways. Faaaaiiiiillllll

    Check out the jukebox, which you can control with an app (TouchTunes). If you hear Oasis' Wonderwall, I'm near..

    Can get a little packed (and don't forget it's cash only). Prices are dirt cheap and the jukebox is usually cranking out crowd-pleasers.

    The bathroom line becomes a moment worthy of trash reality TV as the night goes on. Not to be missed!

    Happy hour means well drinks that are 3 and change. Note - Lady Gaga is frowned upon on the jukebox. You've been warned.

    Talk to a "normal" gay person, and not a queen you'd find at Splash or Heaven.
