What’s a gay village without a decent showtunes bar? Slap bang on Canal Street, it’s hard to miss this underground lair of plush velvet, lavish cocktails and bellowing musical numbers, given the massive golden Oscar statue marking the venue. Through the velvet rope and down the narrow stairs you’ll be greeted by a baby grand (how they got that in there is anyone’s guess), and while it’s rarely played, the screens around this small bar keep you entertained with songs from film musicals on a seemingly endless loop. The drinks aren’t cheap but it’s a friendly crowd and you’ll be joining in with the crooning in no time. Occasional live performances are as camp as the decor so check the Oscars website for details.
