For decades bar culture has loomed large in the LGBTQ community. During this three-hour stroll, learn why bars have played such an outsized role in gay life. Join us as we tip back our glasses at four special gay/lesbian bars, on an entertaining tour of Manhattan’s most storied neighborhoods.
During our walk, we will see the site of former LGBTQ bars, clubs, and speakeasies, and visit some of those that are open today. The tour stops for optional beverages at The Cubby Hole, Henrietta Hudson's, the Stonewall Inn, and Julius.
Our tour begins at 2:00 PM sharp, rain or shine, at the LGBT Community Center, 208 West 13th Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues. Subway: 1/2/3, A/C/E or F/M to 14th Street; L to 6th or 8th Avenue. After viewing the Center’s famous Keith Haring bathroom (now a meeting room), we explore the rich history of West Village watering holes. Refreshments on your own. Tour ends at approximately 5:00 PM at the historic Julius bar.
Due to the fluid nature of this unique walking tour, we highly encourage that you allow for an extra hour after the official end time. This will allow you the flexibility to enjoy all four of the historic venues where we stop for beverages. You may also want to consider at the end. Plan ahead and enjoy this special, rarely-given tour to the fullest!
