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.

  • Why did Village waterfront bars welcome the rougher side of gay life
  • Who was the woman who opened the first lesbian nightclub? How has she been immortalized?
  • Which bar was the site of a major gay protest resulting in a famous court case years prior to Stonewall?
  • What are the biggest threats to today’s gay bar culture?

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.

  • Due to high community interest, this is an encore of our sold-out August tour. Register in advance to avoid disappointment.
  • See photos from a prior tour on Facebook.
