Sure, Tuesday’s ‘On Top’ party might be a little extreme for some (hell, we don’t all have leather and lace stowed away under our desks for a quick work change), but Le Bain at The Standard is far from a one trick pony.
For a more, um, watered-down affair, head along to ZigZag, the Thursday night from Beige-founder Erich Conrad. Less colourful and less scandalous (do we need to say more straight?), it nonetheless draws in an attractive crowd who’s keen to kick off the weekend early.
Mixed rather than outright gay, it's gay-friendly in this venue that can be anything but (particularly on weekends). Co-hosted by fabulous nightlife veteran Sophia Lamar, you can be sure of a strong turnout of handsome boys and pretty poseurs, alongside Euro hipsters pulled in by Misshapes’ Greg K and promoter Kristin Gallegos.
