Love going to this bar, don't like the drag shows much. The owner need to have dance content instead of the out dated drag shows. The music is great, the drinks is a reasonable price, love the mix crowd of people.

This is my second time going here on the weekend after moving away and not coming here for years. Not much has changed, but I will say the people at the door need to relax. Especially the bald black guy, who takes his job and himself way too seriously. They act as though they are doing you a favor to go into that bar !! He asked for ID, which is fine, but there was nobody else in line when I arrived, and he was making me feel rushed to show it to him. I told him to give me a minute, and he says he’s not rushing me. My current ID is still from FL, so he proceeds to tell me we do things a little faster here in NY …. Really ?? I live in NY, and there is no one else in line trying to get in. Please just do your job. I don’t need your two cents. If I’m not drunk, and not causing a problem, do not disrespect me. I am the patron of the establishment, and you need to treat me with respect. No other gay bar in Chelsea does this. I won’t be coming back on the weekend due to this guy’s attitude.

Barracuda offers good, reasonably priced drinks served by friendly, attentive bartenders. It's a great place to enjoy a drink and music, or venture into the back for a typically great show.

This place was the perfect spot to get lost to the music. Props to the DJ for playing all the bops during Pride weekend! I had a blast in here dancing the night away. Oh and Greg! Sir Manager Greg was awesome and even on our way out introduced us to a sister spot nearby. Happy Pride!

I have been here a few times and I've really enjoyed it. The bartenders are really friendly and made great drinks. Not a huge selection of beers though. It's never been really busy when I have went, except one Friday night, but even then it wasn't packed. I was still able to mingle and hear people speaking to me. The bouncer on one occasion wasn't waiting at the door when I walked in so he got up and walked towards me without saying anything so I had to awkwardly walk backwards outside of the door, then he gestured to see my I.D., again without saying anything. I thought he could have been a little more tactful, but he was just doing his job.

The clown DJ that works here will take your money during a drag show but not play the song you requested. At least there's no cover!

Went in there with some friends. It wasn’t what was advertised , it was very dark not very diverse and boring tbh. They have a discrimination thing against IDNYC tho so beware my friend couldn’t get in even though he’s well past the legal age and a great patron of other bars . I guess there better bars out there so we left to the better bar on 8th Ave and 19th st

This place is so great, it's one of the lastoriginal gay pubs in Chelsea with that neighborhood feel. I used to live around the corner and loved stopping...

Cozy bar with some good drag shows. Ordered the same drinks from two different servers and they were different prices each time.

This seems to be a place where it depends on the night and the mood you're in. I came in, and while there were very few people, everyone was very kind...

This place is so awful it's a shame the pandemic economy didn't finally close it. What an awful relic of the 90s. You want to know the reason it's so dark...

It's so dark in here. I think this bar is ok for happy hour specials and cheap drinks. However, the cash-only policy hurts my feelings. :)Aside from...
