The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
How to get there
  • Christopher St – Sheridan Square • 1 min walk
  • West 4th St – Washington Square • 4 min walk

    Not what I’d expected…
    I was excited to go to such a historic bar, and don’t get me wrong it it’s lovely. The rainbow lights are particularly atmospheric. But… no prices anywhere. When I ask for a menu and then order the stone wall inn IPA ($8), I was told that it’s actually $12 now. 2 drink minimum per person for card payments. And you can’t take it outside to their tables. But at least the beer was good in the end. Just a frustrating experience really. Disappointing when I was so looking forward to visiting the historic place.

    History
    We had to visit here - this is where gay liberation began. We found it friendlier and more pleasant during the day than at night. Drinks are expensive but I don’t really blame them for capitalising on the fame of the place. They also sell a good range of commemorative T shirts. Apparently there is nothing left of the interior of the original bar where the riot took place (according to Wikipedia) but that shouldn’t detract from the history of the location. I was pleased to see that a museum is being created next door which should open in 2024. Also don’t miss the displays and statues in the park opposite.

    Stonewall Inn, Kristy and Mel made it a special visit!
    Stopped by The Stonewall Inn tonight a little early before the crowds. Kristy was awesome. She greeted us with a smile and took our drink order right away. I always love when I get to a popular place early, with time to make conversation about the venue. Kristy took the time to give me the history of the bar and the neighborhood - thank you so much. It's not very often that a NYC bartender makes such a personal connection. Mel soon joined Kristy for the evening crowd. Mel was just as attentive and made sure that we had our drinks filled. I really appreciate the personalized service that Kristy and Mel gave us. We left as it got pretty busy and they both took the time to say goodbye to us. We felt like part of the family. Thanks Sonewall Inn. It was a great experience, thanks to your staff. I'm going to rate Stonewall with 5-stars, which was well earned.

Bar person unwelcoming. Bar frequently left unattended. Bar person was moaning about a group of girls coming in looking at the history of the place before they got a drink. Then later having she was having a hissy fit because people formed a Q. They could not get to the bar because of everybody sat in the way.

Plenty more welcoming places in NYC.

Amazing, historic, great staff. I went to the top floor for a friend's event, which was amazing, and then hung out downstairs on the main floor afterwards.
It's Stonewall. What more must I write?

The historical significance of the bar was the reason we visited but its reputation is badly let down by its current employees.

The menu can be found by scanning a QR code in little display frame on the tables - we worked this out later - our table didn’t have one when we were seated outside, leaving us without a clue about what was available. When the server came to take our order, they were unnecessarily abrupt/rude with us when we asked what they had. We saw the same server be similarly unpleasant to other customers but very friendly to people they obviously knew.

The worst service experience we had in New York on our entire trip!

I was so excited to come here, the place has amazing history for our community, only disappointment is the staff. Everything that lets the community down, self-indulgent gay men bar staff who are power mad… such a shame

We visited while the Inn was closed. The park is right across the street. You can down the TellBetter app for a audio walking tour. Around the corner is ‘Gay street’. There is a museum and store under construction- target to open at the 55 year anniversary in June 2024.

So cool to be drinking in such a historical bar. Went during the day and it wasn’t overly busy but still a good vibe and friendly customers and staff.
