DRINK: UPTOWN LGBT BARS 2018
Boxers will be opening soon on Broadway by 159th Street. Below are some current alternatives to LGBT nightlife in upper Manhattan.
Alibi Lounge over on historic Strivers Row on the 7th Avenue side just below 139th Street and is the only official gay bar to open in Harlem in the past couple of decades. More on Alibi can be found in our past post: LINK
Harlem Nights on 7th Avenue at the corner of 138th has an LGBT-friendly evening on Thursdays. The casual bar known for cheap drinks apparently really brings in a diverse crowd every week and might be a good spot to check out for those looking for a new place to socialize uptown: LINK
Suite on Amsterdam at 108th Street is on the outskirts of Morningside Heights but has been the go-to uptown gay bar for well over a decade. Weekend drag shows at midnight are the main attraction and bring in the crowds: LINK
