Candle Bar Flames Out

   I've always believed Julius' was the oldest gay bar in New York, but REPORTS of the Candle Bar closing say it was. (Wikipedia explains the discrepancy HERE.) Either way, sad to hear. My Upper West Side days were mostly at The Works, which feels like it's been gone forever, but now I'm wondering if the area has any gay haunts at all.



i loved this place. such a great dive bar. it's the only gay haunt i knew of on the UWS.

Didn't know the Works was still around. I think last time I was there was in '83?

No, the Works is long gone. Was just mentioning it as the last place I used to go up there:-)
