Still popular Chelsea meeting place
Barracuda has been a Chelsea insitution for years with frequent drag performances and regular guys enjoying the strong drinks at the long bar in the front and just hanging on comfy sofas in back.


    • Cute guys, epic drag shows, no attitude bar.
      I love me some Barracuda. They have 2 for 1 happy hour until 8pm daily. The clientele is no attitude, sexy guys both young and old. The drag shows are EVERYTHING and the guys I have met here have become some of my best friends.

      worst bar tender
      Avoid; bar starts out great getting in, music, people, but then when you need to get a drink you end up with bad service. There is a muscle mary bar tender who is so coked up that he mixes up your drink order every time. When you complain he has a fit. Happened several times and with several people i know.

      The Bar is a very nice place well located . but unfortunately the manager is a pig
      The Bar is a very nice place well located . but unfortunately the manager works in the bar and his behaviour is nasty and unfriendly with tourist or locals. Customers are not treated with respect by the manger he preffer to resolve calling the security guy and throwing out instead of resolve..also the comment by the staff of the the manager is : he always has issues with clients... a tip to consider if you go . good luck.... El bar es muy bueno y bien localizado , pero lamentablemente el manager trabaja en la barra y es un tipo rudo y poo amigable con turistas y locales. Los clientes no tienen derecho y el manager si se enfada prefiere resolver llamandote a el guardia para sacarte del bar , segun el guardia siempre es asi de severo. un dato para considerar si te pasas por el bar...buena suerte...

      Barracuda lounge NYC
      Getting in to the bar was a good expierience. Music was great but the show by miss Trixie the dragqueen was the comedie went wrong! The [email protected] is from Florida and aren't pleasant when it comes to humiliation nation whe it comes to customers. She adds her racist big mouth when drunk! So far about the lounge everything was good and cheap drinks! Not as crowded as Saturday (Sunday) but still a lot of fun!

      Comfortable Neighborhood Feel
      I still like coming to this place, especially when I'm in Chelsea. It's a good place to meet up with friends and it's kind of an "ole reliable". There's really a dwindling amount of options in Chelsea these days and this is certainly a contrast to G. G is polished and a bit standoffish, Barracuda just feels inviting albeit a bit rough around the edges.

      Super nice bartender. I visited on a week night recently during a drag show. It was a great experience. The clientele were friendly enough, the performer was incredible. I wish I remembered her name.

      Great Chelsea bar
      I found this bar to be low on attitude, and appreciated the 2-for-1 happy hour special. The bartender was friendly. I will definitely go back.

      Bar sympathique. Bonne ambiance. Il faut connaître l'entrée car il n'est pas indiqué.

      Drag Show
      Best drag show in NYC and defintely a place to go if you want to sit down. Pretty average crowd with anything ranging from twinks to bears to older people! Big fan of the drinks and the bartenders are cuties!
