Top ways to experience The Stonewall Inn
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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 neighborhood 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 stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
How to get there
  • Christopher St – Sheridan Square • 1 min walk
  • West 4th St – Washington Square • 4 min walk

The free TellBetter tour app has an AWESOME free tour of Greenwich Village called Rebels & Radicals that has a stop at Stonewall. It has sound effects and voices makes you feel like you feel like you were actually there on the night of the uprising. It's pretty amazing. Really dramatic. Search "TellBetter" in the app store.

My experience at The Stonewall was transformational. I was so lucky to have visited when Tree was tending bar. He was also tending bar 51 years ago, on the night of the riots. While keeping your drinks full, he regaled you with incredible stories, anecdotes, and hilarious jokes. This is a must do on your visit!

Warm, welcoming staff and a great stop for a couple of drinks on a cold afternoon. The history is celebrated and although we were only there for a few hours, we enjoyed our conversations, learning about the history of The Stonewall and also the legacy of support to the GJBTQ community by The Stonewall. Well worth a visit.

Stopped in for a beer during our holiday from the UK. The place is good and worth a visit for the history that is represents. The bar women was blatantly rude to me for no reason. I was nothing but polite whilst there just received sarcastic and rude comments whenever being served or asking for the bill.

We arrived at the stonewall in at 12.45 on a Sunday. Google info states opens at 1pm. Hung around until 1.15 and no sign of opening, thought was maybe a mistake as didn’t open other days until 2pm, so we looked around the local area and came back at 2pm. Waited with others until 2.30pm when a lady came out, but didn’t say they were open, when followed them into the bar, we wanted a beer. Only to be asked for ID. At 60 and 45 years old it seemed a strange request. Although had all documents including vaccine etc on NYC covid app. We were turned away because we didn’t have physical ID. So in effect wasted nearly 2 hours of our day waiting on the place to open and then couldn’t even get a drink! Absolute joke!!

Visited this iconic place spontaneously and I’m happy I went there. The bar was beautiful and there were colorful pride flags everywhere. The atmosphere was welcoming and the staff was kind. Tried their Moscow mule and it was great - very gingery!

It’s a must go if you are gay or gay-friendly, because of the riots that took place there 50 years ago.
Friendly bartender, and it didn’t feel like a gay bar to me.
Just a regular bar, with good prices for drinks.

I visited in late November. I got chatting to some locals and had a nice time. However, being a bit drunk and also a British tourist, I forgot to add on a tip to the card receipt after buying a round of drinks. The bald barman then said 'thanks so much' really angrily. Cut tourists some slack! The bar is so iconic, I'm sure the staff make plenty in tips.

As nearly every mature gay person in America knows, this is where Gay Liberation began in the United States. The night that the drag queens got tired of being harassed by the police and took over Christopher Street and drove the police out. For historic reasons alone, I would recommend Gay, Lesbian, and Transgendered people to stop by. The staff is always polite and friendly as are most of the patrons. I was arrested for being in a Gay Bar just 2 weeks before the riots, and owe them a ton of grattitude for the changes they brought on for Gay around the World.

I understand the cultural significance of this bar and that is absolutely not what I'm bashing here. I'm all for equality and equal rights for all human beings on this planet but upon visiting this bar I witnessed some of the worst customer service I've ever had the misfortune of experiencing.
The first thing anyone should know before coming here is that this is not a party location. This is not a club, this is a bar. That was the first thing my friends and I misinterpreted about this place as the Stonewall back in our home city is a dance club. New York's Stonewall is better suited to people who want to sit down and have a drink with friends, maybe socialize with others and whatnot.
The disappointments started when we went upstairs and watched a drag show which involved a drunken drag queen stumbling around on stage, breaking glasses, attempting to sing to songs they quite obviously didn’t know the lyrics to and then loudly and obnoxiously demanding tips from the audience.
And that was fine I suppose. It was funny to a degree.
But our whole experience was ruined by one very arrogant waitress. Despite the fact that we already had drinks (and had tipped the bartender) and weren’t planning to stay for long as we had other plans, she demanded that we buy more drinks or we couldn’t remain where we were. We told her we weren’t planning to stay for long and just wanted to finish our drinks before we left but her response was, “Yeah, you can go downstairs now,” in a sullen tone.
Honestly, I’ve had it with the customer service in not only New York but this whole country. It’s pathetic. Truly pathetic. For someone who works off tips, maybe – just maybe – you should have a consideration for how you treat your customers. Maybe we didn’t tip you (overweight, dark haired woman) but that’s no excuse for your abhorrent treatment of us.
Where I’m from, customer service is the number one priority of anyone working in hospitality or retail no matter what the situation. I would never speak to one of my customers the way you spoke to us, and you would never make it on my team. And I don’t even work for tips or commission. You need to seriously reconsider your field of work.
I have never been so downright disappointed in a locale that’s supposed to be regarded in an almost legendary status. The Stonewall Inn may have once stood for something of incredible cultural significance, now it’s just another haven of truly pathetic customer service.
