Top 5 Lesbian-Nightlife Spots


281 W. 12th St., nr. 4th St.; 212-243-9041
The tiny, always gregarious West Village bar unites the neighborhood's corporate-climbers with a mix of sporty types and postcollege hotties, plus a few wayward hipsters.

363 Fifth Ave., nr. 5th St., Park Slope; 718-788-0924
Those pining for the buzz-cut babes and flag-waving mammas of small-town Lesbianville will feel right at home shooting pool or singing karaoke at this Park Slope institution.

The Dalloway
525 Broome St., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-966-9620
A lesbian bar that mixes a literary atmosphere with a club scene.

Henrietta Hudson
438 Hudson St., at Morton St.; 212-924-3347
A no-nonsense party bar for rocker girls and brainy ladies looking to kick back without pretense.

Girls Girls Girls at Metropolitan
559 Lorimer St., nr. Metropolitan Ave., Williamsburg; 718-599-4444
Young, hip, androgynous lesbians have put their stamp on this weekly get-together from the moment the Metropolitan opened its dingy doors. Order a $3 PBR and dance to some indie rock.
