  • Table of Contents

  • The city that never sleeps is no stranger to going big, and the New York Pride 2022 is no exception! 💃🏾 🌈 💃🏼

    From protests and marathons to dance parties and variety shows, there’s something for everyone in NYC this Pride.

    Have a look at our list and find the perfect place for you and your queer squad to celebrate Pride.

    The Stonewall Inn

    Stonewall is an iconic landmark in queer history, so where better to celebrate Pride?

    The birthplace of the modern gay rights movement, Stonewall is a pivotal part of the queer community. A place for the community to celebrate and enjoy themselves, the gay bar has a variety of events held every week.

    Visit the weekly Piano Bar for guest pianists and singing waitstaff, Karaoke Fridays and the annual Tony Awards party, which includes a drag show and Stonewall Invasion: A weekly drag spectacular featuring a different queen and guests each week.


    Cubbyhole is the perfect spot to be surrounded by a welcoming queer community.

    Whether you’re meeting new friends or bringing old ones, you’ll never feel alone. The colorful environment and welcoming atmosphere combined with lively music, dancing, and drinks will create an experience during and after Pride. Every Friday enjoy specials on well drinks, wine, and beer.

    Henrietta Hudson

    Henrietta Hudson is built by lesbians and made for queer people 🏳️‍🌈
    The spacious, airy lounge is a safe space for the queer community to gather safely in a great atmosphere. A cross between a cozy living room and a cafe, you’ll be sure to feel relaxed in the cozy chairs, ottomans, and work areas available.

    During Pride month, you can enjoy their Pride Dance Parties with various DJs including Tikka Masala, Vero-MA, and more.


    Gingers is a space dedicated to queer women, trans and non-binary people. Chat, drink and relax in a community of like-minded people.

    Spend Pride at their Dyke Drag show, a drag show “by dykes for dykes”.

    Metropolitan Bar

    Metropolitan Bar in Brooklyn welcomes everyone LGBTQ+ and allies alike. Chill on their huge patio and garden, while enjoying their weekly Sunday BBQ held every weekend from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

    You won’t be able to resist FREE food, rotating DJs, and backyard shows. Spending Pride here never sounded better.

    The Phoenix

    The Phoenix, originally established as The Bar in 1999, has a strong tradition of catering to a diverse and trendy crowd and has become a gay institution in the east village.

    The Phoenix has never closed its mind after opening its door. With new management, and a renovated interior, the bar has transformed from “go-to dive” to “be seen at destination”.

    Surviving blackouts, hurricanes, and crises in between, the bar has never shuttered, striving to serve a community and neighborhood it holds more dear than the strong drinks poured every night.

    The Sultan Room

    The Sultan Room is a sanctuary for our community of artists and revelers. Peaceful behavior is mandatory. Consent is sacrosanct.

    Stay tuned to their site to check out the Pride events happening.

    Bryant Park

    This month, the New York City Opera’s annual LGBTQ Pride concert will feature a diverse program of selections from opera and musical theater sung by a quartet of stars from City Opera’s Pride Series.
