Gay bars aren’t famed for their punctuation, but the apostrophe in West Village legend Julius’ has been there a while. Like, since 1862. It’s New York’s oldest operating gay bar and that deserves some serious gay respect!
The bar has been used as a TV and film backdrop for everything, from the bar scenes in Can You Ever Forgive Me? to Ryan Murphy’s The Boys in the Band. And, more importantly, is famous for being the site of the 1966 ‘sip in’ protest, a precursor to Stonewall.
Expect a range of ages – from longtimers at the bar, to younger folks out the back, there’s a tasty in-house grill, and plenty of special nights and parties, including Mattachine.Website
