Friend's Tavern

91% love it
Cool Queens haunt
Friend's Tavern was there before anyone had heard of a Chelsea boy. Great, strong cocktails and drinks. Low-key, cruisey crowd.

      Local Hispanic Hangout but welcoming to all
      Friends is located in a safe and heavily Hispanic neighborhood with a high concentration of Columbians. It seems full of locals who mostly seem to know each other. This is a good thing! I am American born white, not hispanic, but love diversity. Salsa dance music plays constantly and Friends is welcoming to everyone, especially those new to the bar. I always meet someone new and interesting. The place is a party for everyone with both gay and gay friendly men and women joining in. Its a bar you want to spend the whole evening at. Just 5 blocks from 74th street subway station

      Friendly Persuasion at Friend's tavern
      Felt at home immediately I walked in. An easy-on-the-eyes bartender greeted me as if he'd known me forever. Has an odd shape, not very wide, but the place is long, very deep. There's a happy hour, four hours. Some lovely Latin guys were hanging out, and I couldn't take my eyes off them. Nice place, indeed. No attitude, no hassles, well worth a trip to Queens from Manhattan.
