Village Voice's Description

Billed as the first and only gay sports bar in New York, Gym Sportsbar is an establishment whose welcome is long overdue: an open atmosphere for the many gay sports enthusiasts in the city, boasting nine large-screen TVs, a 40-foot mahogany bar with frozen energy-drink slushies, and Final Four eats such as buffalo wings and nachos. Co-owners Rick Schmutzler and Nick Leonard reach out to the many gay sports leagues in the city, hosting registration sign-ups for tournaments and partnering with them for charity events. The atmosphere is friendly and riotous; nothing not to like here.

    I don’t recommend this place. The Bar’s management opposes any display of affectionate behavior among the patrons.

    It's the only GAY Sportsbar in town. Def check out downstairs when it's open. Small smoking area can get a bit crowded outside, so you'll be sure to make some new friends LOL.

    NYC's gay sports bar. FYI - Drinks are delicious but STRONG. Musclebear, bear, cub, older crowd mixed in with All-American Boy type - some actually there to watch sports.

    We don't like toting bags around crowded bars. GYM: please consider opening your coat/bag check in the spring/summer.

    Friendly gay sports bar with 2-4-1 happy hour until 9pm. If it’s open, go downstairs to the Locker Room for a pick-up game of Flip Cup.
