Welcome to Hell’s Kitchen’s first super bar, courtesy of gay nightlife veterans Bob Pontarelli and Stephen Heighton, owners of Chelsea institutions like Barracuda and Elmo. The duo has transformed a former parking garage into 4,000 square feet of gay playground where you’ll now want to park your ass seven nights a week.
With six different areas, there should be something for everybody at Industry Bar, regardless of whether you’re looking to play a game of pool, rub your bum on the snakeskin couch, or cosy up in the back room that comes complete with a holographic fireplace.
The finest of NYC’s drags will liven things up from the massive stage but if you prefer to chill in one of the booths, then there’s waiter service to keep you hydrated while you check the booty situation on Grindr. With places like Therapy across the street and Flaming Saddles around the corner, this is a near mandatory stop on the Hellsea bar hopping route.
