    Friendly lesbian bar. gay men frequent & rarely I see 2 straight dudes. Everyone is cool with each other. Cheap beer. Hot professionals, college graduates, artists, & bar tenders from other bars visit

    Formerly a lesbian bar but now a mixed crowd. Half price beer, wine, and well at happy hour. Check out the crazy decor on the ceiling!

    One time a lesbian took the Rangers hockey jersey off of her back and let me wear it. That's the hospitality you come to expect at Cubby. Oh, and always order beer (the drinks are cheap but weak).

    I have to give a loud shout to the bartender of the evening, Mitch! Fantastic bartender!!!!!

    I love the Cubby, always, but love it even more when the bar buys pizza for everybody! Time for another beer.:)

  • Tony X.
    This place is packed with Ranger fans and zero attitude, making it the best lesbot bar I know and trust me, been to a few. $5 Yuenglings all night and a jukebox that hates Mariah Carrey. Awesome!
    Tony Xerray · June 3, 2014
  • Susan R.
    One of the best Happy Hours in NYC.

    The best place to hang out with cute lesbians is this aptly named, cozy bar. There’s no attitude here, just lots of paper lanterns and holiday decorations. Strike up a conversation at the jukebox. Read more
