This is NYC’s best-known lesbian bar. If you just came out, or you’re visiting NYC, someone will inevitably bring you to this small, cash-only, kinda-divey place in the West Village, where the ceiling is always completely covered in seasonally-appropriate decorations. It stays pretty low-key during the week, but on weekends it’s packed, and you should expect both a line and, once you’re inside, at least a few straight couples looking for a “friend” and groups of non-queer people who wanted to go to a lesbian bar “just for fun.” Cubbyhole also does Happy Hour every day until 7pm: half off all drinks, and free pizza.
