Hell's Kitchen, New York –
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.
Successful local professionals, skinny club boys, muscle guys, show tune and drag lovers, and artistic ladies, 20s to 30s.
Variety shows several nights a week feature trivia and cash/drink/snack giveaways up to $1,000. DJs spin most nights before events. Theme/show nights include The Paige Turner Show on Mondays, a singing competition on Tuesday’s Got Talent, a VJ on Showtune Wednesdays, The Shequida Show for drag on Thursdays, DJ dance parties on Flirt Fridays and Squirt Saturdays, and various shows and DJs on Sundays.
Happy Hour daily 4–8pm.
Beer $6+, wine $8+, cocktails $8–$10, specialty cocktails $8–$10.
Classy club wear: button-downs, nice jeans, boots, tight dresses, tight shirts, studs. Vinyl and other slightly outrageous attire for drag nights.
Tuesdays for the performers, Thursdays for drag fans, and Fridays and Saturdays for the biggest crowds and the best dancing.
The Ritz (369 West 46th Street) is another fun gay bar down the street.
