Shining brightly on the Upper West Side, Candle Bar is a beacon for local gay men who come here to unwind. This neighborhood bar has never been the “it” place to go, which is precisely why it’s the place to go to escape the pretense of downtown bars. A happy hour from 2pm to 9pm and nightly drink specials, such as $2.50 margaritas on Tuesdays and $4 appletinis on Wednesdays, also help to ensure a good time. The laid-back men who frequent this joint are always eager to chat you up about almost anything, but you may want to save conversations about the gym and protein supplements for another venue. Regardless, a night at Candle Bar still guarantees a great afterglow.
