The lowdown

Industry is a welcome blend of the three types of gay bars you’ve come to expect in Manhattan: the tight-shirt lounge, the tank-top megaclub, and the casual-plaid cruising spot. Excellent D.J.’s spin genre-spanning pop mash-ups of Erasure and Ke$ha, D.J. Earworm mastermixes, and hits from Cher to Kanye to Cher to Robyn to Cher, all while bartenders pour stiff vodka sodas to handsome men of all ages who are all under 40 online. The loosely divided rooms, sprawled across a single floor, are comfortably sparse, ideal for unfettered roaming. Go early on Fridays to relax and talk, and then let the room heat up around you.
