I hate black rice chasers. This unashamedly punky, vital East Village gay bar relocated last summer, and the new address is a vast improvement. What if they did give in for the cameras and let him in -would he really want to be there? This way they could have a private party that allowed only K-singles to be members, the same way Jewish dating clubs work. These are all the same person, right? Simply renounce the racist policies and move on.
where pride began
I remember hearing they had great hamburgers there, but that wasn't enough motivation to get me in there. It was always a Black neighborhood for most of the 20th century. Later a dress shop, cosmetic store. Just heard last night. You might have more problems if it was the other way around-—Black guy with X female in a Black club.
Lucky Cheng's - New York's #1 Drag Queen Show Cabaret, Restaurant & Bar
This West Village piano bar might be my straight and female roommate's favorite bar in the world, since it's rare to find a spot in the city where it's socially acceptable to belt the Les Miserables soundtrack. Nathan Lane was always there at the end of the bar, drunk and crying It was only after someone told me about its history that I learned that it's NYC's oldest gay bar. I just heard that Bartini what a terrible name! Everyone who worked there was completely caught by surprise. Ppl would line up to the red 9 building down the block the Avon Bldg. I recommend the book from the Sandel post from yesterday:
This was before the Swamp Club which eventually became the Star Club, a straight bar, when they realized straight clubs made more money out there. Anyway that's been gone for about 5 years, and The Cock 93 Second Ave. Would love to know the gay bars of the 60's and 70s -- come on eldergays -- give us our history. I think it closed years ago. Kick Off starting at 6pm.
