East Village gay bars come and go, but Wonder Bar has somehow managed to cling to its good standing with downtown's notoriously fickle fags. The bar originally opened under different ownership in the early '90s, when a trip to Alphabet City was thought to be an adventure; the neighborhood's other vanguard gay joints like the Crow Bar and Cake are vague memories now: Yuppification has effectively heteroed the 'hood. But this little bar that could still attracts a good-sized crowd every night: Everyone from the Cosmo-inclined to Bud boys to Bombay-and-tonic gentlemen still flocks to this grungily stylish and oh-so-friendly small wonder.
