Village Voice's Description

Departing somewhat from the standard underlying cruisiness of your average gay bar, Barracuda strikes a relaxed pose between fun and stylish. Comprising a well-lit back room stocked with ample cushioned seats around a pool table and a flirty front room stocked with spunky barmen and at least one reasonably dark corner, patrons can choose what takes their fancy and no one gets too angsty about how their hair is looking. Regular drag shows happen weekly and two-for-one happy hour is from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m., Monday through Friday.

    Men can’t be counted on—the pigs—but the long-running hangout Barracuda can be: for cute bartenders, a spunky drag show, and some late-night company before heading home for Forensic Files. Prance in on virtually any night—after showing your valid ID to Joe the genial door guy—and you’ll be guaranteed an assortment of mixed nuts to talk Madonna with in the front room. Keep walking...

    Gay bar light on 'tude. If there really is such a thing, this could be the place. - Andy Cohen, Watch What Happens Live!

    It’s dark, dirty, and just what you want! There is always a crowd so dress accordingly! -Derek, The A-List: New York

  • LogoTV on 11/30/10

    NYC's ultimate drag bar. Don't miss Star Search on Thursdays at 1am- the 22 years & running drag contest that has launched the careers of many. Hosted by me! - Mimi Imfurst, RuPaul's Drag Race

    Place can def be DARK & CRUISY, but you'll also find the most down to earth people here. And it's great place to bring a group of friends. Zero attitude, unlike some of the 'classier' bars in town.

    The ideal combination of a Dive Bar and a Gay Bar. Cheap drinks, no attitude, great shows and lots of couches to chill with friends or make out with that hottie you just met!
