    I'm planning to go to New York sometime soon and was wondering what the best gay bars/nightclubs are in NYC. The last time I went I only got to check out Splash and wasn't that impressed. I'm looking for places that are a little younger...any suggestions?

    You probably want clubs in Hells Kitchen. The average age there is upper 20s I'm guessing.

    Don't know much about Hell's Kitchen. But I hear it has good looking, young, muscly guys. I hear some people describe it as a younger Chelsea.

    If you want even younger guys, East Village gay bars will have NYU students. It's not just NYU students though, they get a lot of other guys that are a little older too. Eastern Bloc, Boiler Room, The Cock, and Urge (it has gogo dancers lol) are some off the top of my head. They're all close to each other too so you can bar hop.

    Only go to The Cock if you want to get felt up, sucked off, or "other"... on the dance floor. I'm not exaggerating. There's a ton of places here for every scene, so you might want to be a bit more specific in what you want. When you get here, you can pick up a NEXT magazine that's in any gay bar. It's a weekly print that will show where all the clubs are and what's going on each night.

    Good looking, young, muscly guys? Sounds perfect for me icon_biggrin.gif

    As for specifics, I'm looking for a younger crowd around my age 20's, to early 30's, fun and lively, but not sleezy. I'm not into public groping and sex. East Village sounds promising.

    For the OP:

    Sounds like you might like the college twink/jock scene.

    RUSH might be your thing:

    579 6th Ave.

    Formerly managed as "Heaven", it has an 18-30+ crowd skewing heavily toward the 18-22 college aged set - and near enough to Splash and G Lounge if it turns out to be too young a crowd for you.

    My bf and I were just in NYC and we went to Crimson on saturday. It was pretty bumpin! 3 go-go dancers i think and the club was actually pretty packed with mostly younger people.
    Plus no one tried to grope me so I appreciate that lol

    Hey I'm into guys of all colors. You're actually a pretty cute guy icon_wink.gif

    And looks like i got a list going of places I need to check out when I hit up NYC. Some of the places didn't get the best reviews on Yelp....but eh, what do they know? I'll take personal recommendations from you guys over theirs anyday.

    Awww thanks! Those yelp reviews were probably written by ugly people who didn't get any play. Wherever you go you will leave with a cute guy. icon_smile.gif

    LOVED EASTERN BLOC! So much fun on Wednesdays when they play nothing but disco. The crowd was mixed as far as age goes but more hipster bear/cub/otter types who kept making out by the DJ booth. I can't wait to move to NYC in January and be there EVERY wednesday night.

    "I'm I'm not into public groping and sex. East Village sounds promising."
    Does not fully compute...LOL
    EV has far more more sleeze than Hell's Kitchen. Eastern Bloc plays vintage porn on the televisions, but it does have the youth you seek; they just all seem to be ironic types and dressed in skinny jeans and dark rimmed wayfarers, and scarves with short sleeved tees (in the summer, for some reason). It is a very different scene than muscle guys dancing, just FYI, in the EV.

    Check out Club 57 on a Saturday, it is great fun if you want to see lots of ppl dancing with no shirts on and hot bods, but nothing gets going until midnight at the least. You want to make sure you stay late enough to go upstairs, because this is when all the magic happens, and the magic isn't sleeze. It's clean, there are hot muscle guys, and it is very highly decorated/ renovated. You might also try Industry, but again ages are all over the place. Honestly, can't think of any one bar that solely has 20's & 30's. But, Chelsea and HK have most of what [I think] you are looking for.

    Just because there are "NYU students" in the EV, does not mean there is not a lot of sleeze; I am being nice and will leave it at that! icon_biggrin.gif


    haha I never said the EV didn't have sleaze icon_twisted.gif. Some places are more sleazy than others, but its not like youre walking into a bathhouse. Chelsea and HK are more like standard gay neighborhoods in any city like West Hollywood. The EV offers something different. You can hear stuff like New Order or the Clash along with your gay standards like Madonna and Kylie being played in bars here. There's no gay clubs here though, but there's dancing in the bars. "They just all seem to be the ironic types and dressed in skinny jeans..." hahahaha. Well, did you ever talk to them. Most of them are pretty nice, some are a little too nice icon_wink.gif. Not everyone who wears skinny jeans is an ironic hipster douche bag. I'd recommend you check out places in both HK and the EV. Maybe do one night in HK another in the EV or start off the night in one and take the subway to the other.
