Grab A Drink At The Oldest Gay Bar In NYC

Sometimes, it’s best to keep things classic. With a wide open space and an Italian countryside vibe, Morandi feels like a legitimate getaway. It's also one of the only West Village Italian spots that takes reservations, and advanced planning makes us happy.

After dinner, take casual to a whole other level at Julius’. This little dive bar in the heart of the Village is considered the oldest gay bar in the entire city, and the love is apparent the second you walk in. With super low-key digs, the interior decor may not seem especially impressive, but it’s the history that makes this place worth the trip. Photos of gay icons line the walls, there’s no shortage on rainbow stripes, and you’ll have to keep an eye out for their classic line drawing of naked male patrons.
