In this standard, slightly beat-up, moderately sized space, inexpensive mixed drinks flow while a steady crowd's din drowns out the speakers. A selection of bottled brew compliments the extensive liquor choices, and the regular patrons seem to value excessive alcohol consumption—so the vodka tonics are served strong. Despite drawing a more sexed-up Saturday night crowd, Gussy's doesn't charge a cover. The friendly, fast-moving female bartenders welcome newcomers and chat with regulars. Crowds are drawn as early as noon, but there are no happy-hour specials. Even the typical bar food isn't offered here, so the focus remains on the (again, we remind you: strong) drinks.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
