Best Gay Night

  • Gekko

    The Library Bar at Gild Hall, 15 Gold St., nr. Platt St.; 212-232-7700

    Sorry, Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea, but this year’s most pulsating gay party takes place in the financial district. Ben Harvey, half of the duo behind Dumbo’s popular Gumbo parties and a recent Fidi transplant, found the nabe’s luxe new condos flush with gays but short on festivities. So on the last Wednesday of each month, the Gumbo boys take over the hypermasculine Library Bar at Gild Hall hotel and stock it to the brim with men of seemingly every demographic, from aging Wall Streeters sipping Sidecars by the antique bar to flashy youths bouncing along to D.J. Pony’s pop remixes.
