A big red X on the brick wall near the entrance literally marks the spot at this Midtown gay bar that sits at the intersection of the rainbow crosswalks. X, or what everyone calls Ten, is a single, simple room setup with two bars and a dance floor. When we’re worn out from clutching vodka sodas and grooving to pop 2k remixes, we hit their patio. It’s perfect for people-watching, and it got a serious foliage upgrade (a silver lining of the pandemic) with a living plant wall providing an oasis from the street. Though not the most popular place in the gayborhood, the central location, theme nights, and all-seasons patio still make X a scene-y spot.
