167 8th Ave
A non-pretentious Chelsea sports bar full of hot bears of all flavours. The friendliest bar in New York and they have incredibly cheap drinks. My home away from home — please forward all my mail here.
8. Rainbow House Playground
35-12 Northern Blvd, Astoria
When the friend that you’re staying with lives in Astoria and you don’t want to travel to Manhattan to get off. It’s a sex club with semi-private and open door events, NYC-style. Plus, it’s BYOB.
7. Eastern Bloc
505 E 6th St
The Lower East Side Soviet-themed bar with a campy, sleazy vibe. Great for pre-drinks.
Santos Party House, 96 Lafayette St
House/techno meets leather every month. The men and the music are always good.
The promoters that host sleazy circuit parties including Night People and the infamous Black Party in March bring you The Saint At Large. Even if you don’t dig the circuit, you have to experience it once.
4. The Cock
93 2nd Ave
The infamous bar that gets busier and busier, even past last call. If you didn’t get lucky anywhere else, it’s a dependable last stop. Includes a wide assortment of men and groping. Now on two floors.
165 8th Ave
The video booths in the backroom of this Chelsea porn shop are a wonderful throwback to the cruising of yesteryear — with surprisingly hot men.
250 W 26th St
It’s a dungeon. It’s underground. It includes bondage, bear and spanking themed parties. “Encore” after hours on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Semi-private door so RSVP beforehand.
1. Eagle NYC
554 W 28th St
By far my favorite spot. It’s dependable on weekends and maintains the classic leather bar vibe.
