Party Earth Bar-Tini Ultra Lounge Review

The Scene

A sleek hotspot known for its exuberant parties, Bar-Tini Ultra Lounge is a lively gay bar and lounge that brings an air of luxury and excitement to Hell's Kitchen.

A sleek hotspot known for its exuberant parties, Bar-Tini Ultra Lounge is a lively gay bar and lounge that brings an air of luxury and excitement to Hell’s Kitchen.

Modern yet sensual, the space is done up completely in white, from the polished walls and plush high-backed chairs to the glossy bar, where well-dressed older professionals and skinny hipster-styled boys and their lady friends gather to chat and flirt over specialty cocktails.

Sexy disco-style purple lighting combines with the amber glow from chandeliers to add a touch of old-school decadence to the small dance floor, fitted out with a DJ booth and low white ottomans usually occupied by buff club kids nodding along to techno-infused disco beats.

On weekdays, a fun-loving crowd shows up for everything from singing competitions and drag shows to show tune extravaganzas, while hard-bodied dance fanatics and lively young professionals looking to cut loose pile in on Fridays and Saturdays for sweaty dance parties with a pick-up vibe.

A fabulous mix of electricity, enthusiasm, and swanky club class, Bar-Tini is a must for partiers looking for an upscale yet unabashedly gay night on the town.

Tip from Emma:

Try the Antioxidant, made with eau de vie, pomegranate liqueur, and cranberry – it’s a tasty drink that packs a healthy punch. Just one of those will keep you going for an entire ridiculous theme night with your boys.

Finally, a Gay Bar for the Straights
Colin H. May 23, 2013
The idea of venturing out of the comfort zone and exploring a gay bar may put off some of you bros out there... but don't get your ill-fitting Joe Boxer boxers tied in a bunch; it's truly a gay bar for the straights. Take it from a gay guy who won't even walk into a gay bar without at least 5 Johnny Walker Blacks flowing through his blood stream. Bar-tini is a great place to just let loose and have fun without the discomfort of oddly-thin gogo boys waving to you using only their junk for the sake of landing a dollar. Flaunting a chill, almost space-like environment, this place boasts an impressive and unique list of house cocktails, as well as a full bar. Later in the evening, it does become a rather packed dance floor with music at a reasonable noise level and fog clouding your vision but hey, live a little. My suggestion: grab one of their Cucumber Martinis. Or grab 5 of them. Whichever.
great night out!

we caught a really great dj and had a blast! The place is insanely heavy-handed in its pandering to the gay crowd which can be exasperating but if u drink enough... who cares haha I also noticed a crazy age range in the patrons, but college students up to and including middle-aged people all partying together and I think this is cuz one half of the place is dance-y and the other half you can just sit around together on stools. It doesn't feel awkward though it feels like it makes sense. A lot of girls here too so if you're into that...
Wait, it's a gay bar?!

When out-of-towners think of an NYC gay bar, they think of Bar-Tini. Its space-age decor and weekly calendar of drag and dance events make it a solid slice of city gay culture, if not the most classic or necessarily authentic. Still, if you want to rock out to some Prince and have some decent mixed drinks, hit this joint up.
