    So I'm flying back to NC through Newark and was considering spending Friday night in New York. I have been to New York before but never experienced the gay scene. And so I turn to you guys in my search for a place that would be the real life version of Real Jock. Where would you recommend me to go?
    Where do all the good guys in NYC hang out ? icon_smile.gif

    I guess that depends on what you're looking for... are you looking to club, dance, "meet someone", chill with a drink... or what?

    NYC is a big place heh.

    I guess I would be looking to chill and possibly meet someone but not in a sleazy kind of way icon_smile.gif A bar that is not too crowded would be nice too. Any suggestions? Maybe I just need a local guide icon_wink.gif

    Both are a decent list but not necessarily too accurate. If you want the typical "gay club" experience check out Splash. Both Vlada Lounge and Vinyl are also low-key / meet people kind of gay bars.

    I'm actually not really big into the gay nightlife scene in NYC but I have a lot of the friends that are. The number one tip seems to be to signup on the promoter email and mailing lists to get free admission/drinks/specials. You definitely don't want to be charged $20 entry into a club.

    The biggest promoter groups I know of are boiparty (www.boiparty.com) and Dougie Meyer Presents. Both groups run most of the parties at Splash and some of the other larger venues.
