Trendy, busy and quite eclectic. Mid Town bar in New York popular with the Gay community, it's really tiny so can get quite crowded in the evening especially on weekends. Great music, drinks are reasonably priced. Good service.

Cubby is the perfect place for meeting new people like you, there's no cover on a regular night and drinks are really cheap! It's one of the favorite gay places chosen by celebrities like Lea DeLaria and some others! :)

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
