Why locals recommend it
Though Chelsea isn’t the city’s gay hub anymore—the action moved to Hell’s Kitchen about a decade ago—Barracuda will probably be there forever. It’s survived because it’s a real neighborhood bar with a lived-in, unpretentious vibe. They have drag shows every night, and while the clientele can be a bit drunk and lively, they’re always welcoming.

“Gay bar. They have TV screens to watch games and what not, and there's a pool table, but Gym bar has more of a sports bar vibe. Crowded most of the time, so I'm recommending it anyway.”
