    Best music in midtown.

    Basically just another typical NY gay bar. Plastic glasses, expensive drinks, same-as-everywhere music. Boooring

    You can actually have some fun in here even if the dancing floor is probably smallest one I've seen so far.

    There are 2 floors each with different music. The 2nd floor is much cooler and less crowded. Lots of drugs... if you're naive or innocent you may need to go elsewhere.

    I don't even know how they get away with selling shots this cheap (2 for $5!), but the dance floor was packed. Gay, Straight, Bi, and confused are welcome to dance the night away.

    The Ritz is a great place to come late at night when everyone is nice and drunk. Just be aware that guys tend to get a bit aggressive towards the wee hours of the night on the dance floor.

    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.

    Let's be real it's not the classiest of establishments, but when you want to go out and just dance with your friends, there's really no place better. It's all about the crew you bring here.

    5-24-2010: Lately,they're running all-day happy hour on Sundays. Drinks are,like,$4. I enjoyed the "3rd floor" outside. Walk thru dance floor, back patio, then up outdoor stairs to crow's nest perch.

    Totally agree with Travis. No attitude, friendly bartenders, generous pours. More roomy than most other gay bars in the hood. Each room/floor has a different vibe, lots of nooks.

    Monday nights with Bianca Del Rio are the funniest night if the week. Show starts around midnight. Fridays are the best with no attitude, cute guys, bartender who aren't pricks and DJ Xavier spinning.
