The Abbey needs very little introduction - it’s one of the most recognizable gay bars in the entire country. This place is a true metropolis and you could spend an entire night just wandering around making sure you’ve seen every part of it. Weekends get absolutely ambushed when the horny housewives and bridge and tunnel kids arrive, so our move is always a weeknight. Things are just as fun, but you’re actually able to find a space on the dance floor. Don’t sleep on that Sunday brunch either - it gets weird.
