Woody’s is a gay bar in Midtown Village, and it’s one of those places that you only go to if you’re trying to have a big night out. The first floor is more of a pub, with lots of tables and a small food menu with things like chicken fingers and mozzarella sticks. But the second floor is entirely different. It’s a nightclub, with strobe lights, loud house music, and dancing. if you’re coming here, you should be prepared to stay until the place closes.
