NEW YORK CITY… Weekly Scene

New York has a ton of people, and therefore a ton of parties. While LA may have the most predictable and regular set of scenes, New York has got new shit going on all the time, and it’s hard to keep track of the huge roster of weekly and monthly parties that happen there.

MONDAY

Gen X @ Easternbloc
505 E 6th Street
New York, NY

On any mellow Monday (or Friday or Wednesday) night in the East Village, this is where we’d be.


Peppermint @ Barracuda
275 W 22nd Street
New York, NY

Peppermint does a little bit of everything, and along with DJ T-Boy hosts this lively party which caters to those in Chelsea who don’t need to be up too early on Tuesday.

Musical Mondays/Curtain Call @ Splash
50 West 17th
New York, NY

Mucial theater queens pack in to this old wet hole to watch Broadway clips til 11, before hottie Scott Nevins takes the stage with his Broadway diva showcase at midnight.

Twin Cheeks @ The Cock
29 2nd Ave
New York, NY

For those of you still tweaking from Saturday… And also for those of you who want to hear DJ Sparber and grope a few cocks.


TUESDAY

Glory Ho @ Vlada
331 W 51st Street
10PM

Join host dowtown hostess Wendy Ho at this weekly midtown booze fest, featuring a lot of good-looking, mostly preppy boys and thumping beats.

Beige @ B Bar
40 E 4th Street
10PM

This is one of those scenes that just never seems to want to die — it’s even spawned an LA sister party — despite all the primping, and posing, and the fact that everyone is so self-consciously pretty and knows it that pretty much everyone goes home alone.

WEDNESDAY

Good Times at EasternblocGood Times @ Easternbloc
505 E 6th Street
New York

10PM – 4AM

It’s a hip’n’hot shitshow at this weekly shindig for the beardy otter mafia and their admirers, featuring different themes every week curated by DJ Josh Sparber. $2 vodka and beer before 11 (See pics from last week’s party here.)

SlurpTheCockTHUMB.jpg Slurp @ The Cock
29 2nd Avenue
New York

Wednesdays

Drag mess legend Linda Simpson hosts this weekly party with DJs Telfar and Michael Magnan and a revolving cast of downtown’s most fashionable fags and their friends. Wake up on Thursday with fresh regrets! $5 at the door.

SugarThumb.jpg Sugar @ Vlada
331 W 51st Street
New York

Every Wednesday

You got free tickets to a Broadway show on a Wednesday night and you’re too amped up from all the faggy show tunes to go straight home, so where do you go? To this party DJ’d by NY fave Brenda Black.

WillClarkPornoTHUMB.jpgWill Clark’s Porno Bingo @ Pieces
8 Christopher Street
New York

Wednesdays 8PM – 10PM

NYC porn stars and others who happen to be passing through town between penetrations man the balls at this porn-lovers game night in Hell’s Kitchen.  Proceeds benefit local charities, and free giveaways (free porn!) keep the kids and elderlies alike coming on back for more.


THURSDAY

GoGo Idol @ HK Lounge
523 9th Ave @ 39th
New York

 9PM

Cazwell and Michael Formika Jones take over Hell’s Kitchen with DJ Adam and the dirtiest strip contest around.

Boys Gone Wild / Vice Club @  Mr Black
251 West 30th Street
New York

Gay pimp (and sometime sketch comedian) Johnny McGovern hosts this balls-out electro fun fair, with DJ Tekshur downstairs.

 

FRIDAY


Gary 49
@ Mr. Black
27 W 24th Street

It’s the kind of party that doesn’t pick up until after midnight, but it’s best time you’re likely to have gay dancing in NYC these days. Untuck your shirt and join resident DJs Sammy Jo and Johnny Dynell and hosts Drew, Mackey and Ladyfag for some good old uncomplicated twirling and floor stomping.


Bloc Party @ Easternbloc
505 E 6th Street
10PM

This is one of our favorite gay bars in New York: the music’s good, the crowd is smart and cool, the bartenders are hot and it’s the kind of come-as-you-are, non-BnT booze fest Manhattan needs more of.



SATURDAY


Ticklyn
@ Sugarland
221 N 9th St (W’burg)
10PM

Brooklyn: it’s where half the under-thirty gays live now anyway. DJ Emjay spins deep house, etcetera for the Manhatts party monsters and Billyburg homos alike.


Juicy @ Vlada
331 W 51st Street
11PM

It’s the land of the preppier and prettier Hell’s Kitchen crowd, and we have to say Vlada is probably our favorite venue in the ‘hood. Saturdays are now ‘Juicy,’ with DJ Corey Craig spinning the uje, and all the boys doing their best to bop their heads and give off a confident vibe while silently dying of insecurity on the inside. Go on, buy someone a drink.

SUNDAY


Cuckoo Club
@ Hiro
363 W 16th St
10PM-4AM

It’s always a little mobbed after midnight at this glam weekly fete, but y’know… Sundays are for drinking.


Sundays
@ 1 Oak
453 W 17th Street
7PM-midnight

Summer’s dunzo, and so is Garden of Ono. But the Josh Wood circus train has picked and moved over here, across from Hiro. Expect expensive drinks and the A-gays in full force, donning their autumn best.

Hot Mess @ HK
39th & 9th Ave
10PM

Ba

BanaTH.jpgWall Street Bath & Spa
88 Fulton St/William St

Recalling the days of the Continental Baths of the 70s where Bette Midler got her start performing for gays lying about in towels, this occasional bathhouse/pool party’s 2nd anniversary will feature performers Gina Vitro and Leonid the Magnificent. 

Schmooze Saturdays

SchmoozeSaturdaysTH.jpg

HK Lounge
523 9th Ave
New York

Saturdays, 10PM to 4AM

Marc Berkley’s come uptown with everyone else and hosts this weekly
party featuring Ginelle Gordon singing her ass off and a bunch of
hotties boozing it up and schmooze-talking their way into Sunday.
Anyway, we always like a bar with a nice bathroom and multiple levels.
