Dear Friends, Happy Pride
Wow! 2020 will certainly be a year I will never forget.
Thankfully, everyone is healthy and has had time to reflect on what’s important in life. Slowing down, connecting with old friends, finding new ways to bring in income, virtual schooling and adjusting to this “new normal”. There are some who don’t live in safe environments, just know, I hear you and support you. To the friends who demand equality and fair treatment, I hear you and support you. To those who lost loved ones during this time, I send my condolences.

I am thankful to everyone for their support during these challenging times. The donations from the GoFundMe page, checks from our beloved Thanksgiving angels, and donations from friends and family have helped us tremendously. I feel for my fellow local business owners who will never recover.
I look forward to the day that we can sit inside the bar and enjoy a drink and a burger. I look forward to the day when we can exchange a warm hug hello and share our quarantine stories.
Thankfully, we are once again open and providing takeout service for food and drink.

 I will keep you informed via Instagram and Facebook.
Stay strong dear friends, this too shall pass. We look forward to seeing you, even for just a quick hello. Be safe!

Helen Buford, Owner

We appreciate your patronage and we will get through this together.

Opened: 1840
First holding court as a grocery store in 1840, then as a bar in 1864, today it’s one of the city’s oldest gay bars.

Real-talk: the best-kept secret at this joint is their juicy $6 burgers. ©

Who We Are

A bar has continuously operated here since the mid-19th century known as Julius's by around 1930. It started to attract a gay clientele by the 1960's. On April 21, 1966, an event later known as the “Sip-In” was organized by members of the Mattachine Society. Inspired by civil rights sit-in in the south, they set out to challenge the State Liquor Authority's discriminatory policy of revoking the licenses of bars that served gay men and lesbians. The refusal of service to those who intentionally revealed they were “homosexuals” was publicized and photographed. It was one of the earliest pre-Stonewall public actions for LGBT rights, and a big step forward in legitimizing LGBT bars in New York.
