One of New York’s first gay bars to open after the Stone Wall Riot of 1969, Ty’s has been gay owned and operated since opening in 1972, and it’s always been a “man’s” bar. Throughout the years, we’ve catered to the Levi’s/T-shirt, leather, and bear communities. We’re well known for our no-attitude policy, friendly helpful staff, and great drinks at great prices. Tourists from around the world feel as welcome here as the locals who call it home. We proudly sponsor many community events and charities. Ty’s is the official bar of Fireflag/EMS and the Empire City Motorcycle Club, and it’s the home of the ‘Ballbreakers’ softball team.
