Village Voice's Description

For those unaware, Excelsior ("Ever higher!") has taken New Yorkas state motto for its name. This liquor-serving incarnation of the slogan boasts an expansive, lush outside space with plastic flamingos. Play a few classics on the jukebox, which had Echo and the Bunnymen, the Psychedelic Furs, and INXS, and quaff a fresh, extra boozy ("Ever drunker!") margarita served in a tall pilsner glass. Most of the primarily button-down-shirt-and-khaki-clad bargoers seemed, not surprisingly, to live nearby, judging from the presence of several dogs, who wove among the bar stools and tables begging for a pat on the head.

Tips from foursquare

  • Alan H. on 03/12/10

    Friendliest bartenders in the city.

  • Marc K. on 07/28/10

    The bartenders are some of the best in the city, and the patio and garden are an awesome place to chill out. :-)

  • Jon T. on 07/18/10

    Be sure to check out the back patio!

  • The Corcoran Group on 08/17/10

    Low-key neighborhood gay bar with a beautiful, year-round outdoor space. Order the Skittles Shot! Awesome jukebox.

  • Brian M. on 09/04/11

    Fun, gay, local. With very sweet bartenders and good drink specials. And a JUKE BOX!
