My friend and I were checking out the Stonewall Monument and noticed this bar. So later that night we returned for a drink and ended up watching a drag show (on a Monday!). We had such a great time. This place is really cool; two...More

I've been to Monster many times over the course of the last 8 years or so, and it always has a friendly crowd. The upstairs is a bit small and can become crowded, while downstairs is a bit larger. They do not take credit cards...More

We visited this bar whilst on a night out in the village. The drinks were reasonably priced for New York $8 for a gin and tonic, which is okay. The piano bar was very busy with locals and tourists alike. Downstairs there was a drag...More

I visited Monster in August last year and made a lot of new friends from one visit. Awesome venue, music and friendly staff. The drinks are reasonably priced too. Handy to Stonewall pub and park which are just over the road.

Supposed to be one of the most famous gay bars in NYC; would more likely herald it as the rudest bar in NYC. Went in and got served at the bar straight away but wish we hadn’t bothered, as immediately cliques of people were judging...More

Hi guys. Nice, but quiet. Is it to be American? No music but good drinks :) Went across to Stonewall — but didn't get in because I didn't have my ID ~ though (unfortunatly) don't look younger than 30 ;)

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
