Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Homo hot spot Hell’s Kitchen is the location of New York’s first specifically gay (but “straight-friendly”) luxury hotel. Built in the husk of a 1960s motel, the OUT NYC offers more than mere accommodation. The sprawling all-in-one playground also houses XL Nightclub, Cabaret & Lounge, a 14,000-square-foot club operated by nightlife bigwigs John Blair and Beto Sutter, and Tony Fornabaio and Brandon Voss of FV Events; a restaurant, Ktchn, and a 5,000-square-foot spa. The complex is designed around three courtyards: the faux-ivy-lined sundeck, which leads to a glass-ceilinged area containing two eight-person hot tubs; a serene black-bamboo-planted garden; and a faux-grass “great lawn” for lounging (and posing for the rooms that face onto the patch). Despite a few style statements like illuminated bedside cubes and dramatic black velvet curtains framing the bed, the monochrome room decor is on the spare side. The quad rooms ($99–$129 per person), with four curtained cubby-bunks reminiscent of old-fashioned sleeper compartments—upgraded with double beds and personal TVs—are a budget option for those who are traveling with a crowd or want to make new friends. Rooms: 103.
