DID YOU KNOW?.......

The 1980 Warner Bros. movie, 'CRUISING'......starring AL PACINO, and directed by William Friedkin, was filmed at 'THE BAR'.

'THE BAR' was open for 26 years, and was one of the very first openly gay bars in New York City in the late 70's. THE BAR was owned by the same owners of THE BOILER ROOM....up until just a few years ago, both bars were open and running at the same time, just around the corner from each other. 'The original outside canopy of 'THE BAR' now hangs in THE BOILER ROOM, to this day as a nostalgic reminder of the discreet gays days of the past.
