Time Out NY Aglow for nearly 40 years, this Upper West Side bar is not about candles. Rather, it's one of the neighborhood's go-to gay bars, where boys in the 'hood drop by to meet, play pool or just catch up. This is no meat market, and the conventional decor--white string lights, wooden bar--reinforces the low-key vibe. Hell, you might even see an errant straight couple wander in.
