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 Kanye to Robyn to Cher, while bartenders pour stiff vodka sodas ($7) to handsome men of all ages. 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.
