Overview:

Metropolitan (referred to as Metro by almost everyone) is a divey, neighborhood-y, boisterous gay bar that has been a staple of Williamsburg queer nightlife (and happy hour life) since 2002. You get what you pay for at Metro – a strong pour – that isn’t offensively priced. It’s casual, familiar, and relaxed. There’s a pool table, a big backyard that’s full of gays during the summer and randomly warm days, smokers during the winter, and an elevated dance floor indoors that’s filled with a rotation of drag queens, gogo boys, and twinks at any given moment

Metro is a place where you can meet up with friends at 5:00pm for Happy Hour when you skip out on work a little early, go to see a drag show at midnight, or end the night with a nightcap at 3AM. It’s versatile, fun, and accommodates large groups of friends. 

Their infamous summer Sunday BBQ (Memorial Day through Labor Day) has outdoor drag shows, hot dogs, and hamburgers, hosted by Metro’s very own Merrie Cherry with weekly drag queen guests. Ask the bartender for bug spray during the summer months outdoors.

You’ll become friends with your favorite bartender. It’s worth noting, Metropolitan is sisters with Macri Park, another gay bar just a block away, and the staff of each often move back and forth between venues.

Why go?

  • Strong Drinks
  • Casual Neighborhood Spot
  • Engaging Drag Shows

Ambiance: Divey, relaxed, anything goes, chill. Can be fun, or sleepy – or a combination of both. A true neighborhood spot. 

Happy Hour: 3PM – 8PM Every Day, with discounted house liquor and drinks, house wine, and house beer. 

Events (Subject to change – check out Metropolitan’s Instagram account for the latest events information)

Friday and Saturday night dance parties with intermittent drag shows starting at 10PM; Happy Hour Daily; Sunday BBQ during the Summer; regular rotating events including drag shows, trivia, comedy nights, drag race viewings, and more. Check out Metro’s IG for the latest and greatest.
