One of my favorite gay bars in the city. Not over-crowded, strong drinks, and reasonable prices. There was a wide range of ages there when I visited.

The Townhouse, a New York institution at this point, but never, ever shows it’s age. Cosmopolitan, sexy, but always with a welcoming neighborhood pub feel and on Saturday nights, they’ve got Rick at the piano!Everybody singing, some good, some not, but when they write stories about piano bars in NY,the Townhouse, is an experience no one should miss! New York, at its best!

This is my favorite bar when I visit NYC. Depending on the day of the week it can be quite quiet or crowded and lively. There's always entertainment but it's also a gay bar where you can also hold a conversation. There's a lively mix of age and types - and yes, there's a fair share of "gold diggers" but they're in the minority. Take it for what it is - a friendly, neighborhood gay bar that's a fun place to spend an evening.

Excellent place in NY to meet other guys. Drinks are reasonable and service always good. Need to embrace taking credit cards as most of us don’t carry much cash. Cash also leads to dishonesty.

A landmark establishment that has consistently served the needs of the community for years. It’s a fun place to “let your hair down in”! Popular times are Happy Hour weeknights and late night weeknights and weekends.

Come as a local or bring out of town friends — everyone enjoys it. The Townhouse is unique in the world, a distinctly New York flavor. It’s as much a neighborhood bar as a destination. You can settle in ... the brownstone type building is classy, safe and cozy in which the back room is an old-world feel where professional pianists bring charm, warmth and and talent. The owners and staff all make a great effort to make it feel unrushed and friendly.

I want to sing your praises. I live on the West Coast, LA and Palm Springs. Every time I come into NYC, your establishment is my go to place. I have been going to the TH since it opened many many years ago. I wish there was one in LA. I am now 64 and it my type of establishment. I love the location, the lovely staff and the ambiance. Congratulations!!

Watch out! You go in for one drink and they have a time warp machine and you don't come out for hours! Has a wonderful vibe where strangers become friends and it's good times all round!
