Description

Village Voice's Description

More of a museum than a bar at this point, the Stonewall Inn is an open door into the history of the West Village. In 1969, the bar was the site of the infamous Stonewall riots, which became a catalyst for the gay-rights movement in the United States. Today, the walls are lined with photos marking the Stonewall Inn's historical significance. It's still a popular spot, too--DJs play regularly, and the calendar is always full of special events, ranging from karaoke to drag queen nights. The warm interior hasn't changed, and two floors provide welcome changes in scenery. Both the bartenders and regulars are always willing to give a history lesson. The Stonewall Inn turns a night out into an educational experience. --Gabriel Herrera

    oh, stonewall. Always something interesting going on. The last time I was there I played drag queen bingo with a group from australia. The place has two floors, stripper poles, a pool table and even a small quiet lounge room with couches. Buy one get one free during happy hour.

    The gay rights movement began here during a riot on June 28, 1969. Today, Gay Pride events are held annually throughout the world toward the end of June to mark the Stonewall riots.

    Stop by and pay homage to the birth place of the gay rights movement the best way you know how, whit cheap shots. -Zac Young, Top Chef Just Desserts

    The most famous gay bar in history. You've gotta stop in for at least one drink to say you've been. When marriage equality passed in NYC, this is where everyone came to celebrate.

  • PHOTO: The Stonewall Riots began here in 1969, with crowds attempting to impede a police raid on the Stonewall Inn. Click "More Info" to see this historic pic!
