This cozy Hell's Kitchen gay bar is not really posh and therefore not as pretentious as its moniker implies. Posh routinely welcomes a mix of neighborhood gay men and their friends (many of whom are not gay) and on busy weekend evenings, the place resembles an extended Fire Island family. The lounge carefully balances its trendy touches (swanky modern lighting, black leather couches, pulsating D.J.) with laid-back comfort (friendly bartender, affordable drinks, enclosed sidewalk tables where you can people-watch and smoke simultaneously), and the sleek, brushed metal bar contributes to the low-key sexy vibe. Beer choices are basic, with wine options very limited (one red, one white), so do as the Greeks do and stick to cocktails.
