    The oldest gay bar in NYC. Around so long it's a hip dive again. Julius' has the widest age range of clientele, from twinks to men probably here when it first allowed gays in the 1960s. Great burgers!

    Fun crowd and super strong drinks! And of course, still serving the burgers and fries you need when you want a bite!

    Great local crowd, cheap strong drinks, and a great dose of civil rights history. One of my new favorites.

    The oldest, and arguably, nicest gay bar in New York City. The food is great, the drinks are decent, but please leave your straight friends elsewhere, unless you're having a birthday(!). Thank you.

    For the older crowd (average age last night was around 55), but fun, casual, non-cruisy, with seating and a 80's jukebox.

    Established as bar 1864 in building from 1826. Allegedly oldest Greenwich Village bar and oldest gay bar (since 1950s). Site of gay activist 'sip ins' in the 1960s.
