Stopped in to the Stonewall Inn while visiting Christopher Park across the street. This bar holds an important moments in the fight for equal rights for the LGBTQ community. The drink selection was vast, prices standard and they also feature entertain throughout the week.

Place was amazing. The atmosphere was great and bartenders took great care of me. Honestly if you're LGBTQIA+ and visiting NYC you need to check this place out, for one it's a historical landmark for us and two they're just great people

Lots of history and the bartenders were super cool. We stopped by mid-afternoon on Saturday and this was the perfect spot to cool off from the heatwave outside. They didn't have any beer on tap, but they had a pretty standard selection of cans and bottles, plus the Stonewall IPA from Brooklyn Brewery.

First off, the Stonewall Inn is an icon -- a frickin' National Monument, so just being here is amazing. Second, the Stonewall Inn is a bar -- pretty much...

We (a gay couple with a baby) were disappointed to be refused service at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon with our 10-month old son. Popped by hoping for a quick drink to cool down and were told babies are a liability and they can’t allow them even to sit with parents outside. What!? Dogs, yes - children of gay couples, no? We hope management reconsiders otherwise they run the risk of becoming a historical gay monument stuck in the past.

A solid but not superb choice for a night out in NYC. Drinks are reasonable and staff is usually nice. It can be eclectic crowd, and generally seems to draw tourists and students (sometimes straight). Music upstairs on the weekend often plays top 40. Actually prefer to go on weeknights with more locals and piano bar style upstairs.

My friend and I have just returned back to the U.K. after the most fabulous holiday to New York and to top it all it was Pride too which was the icing on the cake. We visited Stonewall Inn nearly every evening of our holiday and we found the bar to not only be iconic and stand for so much but the staff were very nice particularly the ladies during the afternoon/early evening shift. The atmosphere was fun vibrant and friendly. We had excellent evenings here. Thank you to all of you at Stonewall Inn and we are hoping to come back for Pride 2023 and we will most definitely be back to this wonderful bar 😀😀👏👏

My partner and I had a wonderful time having drinks and conversation at this historic bar. The bartenders were so nice and friendly even during busy times. I hope to be able to visit again soon

This is really an iconic place and I recommend everyone to visit twice. Come the first time as a tourist, understand the history, visit the US National Monument across the street. Go inside and think back to what it must have been like at that time. You won't need to use a lot of imagination, I am not sure it's changed that much on the inside. Then visit a second time - come visit just like you would go out to any fun neighborhood gay bar, and enjoy the drinks, the handsome bartenders, and the fact this is a local institution for the community, and have a great time. Drinks are strong like many local places, various beers on tap, pool tables downstairs and drag queens upstairs... It's hard to ask for anything more.

They talk a big talk about inclusion and safe spaces but they don't let you in with a New York City ID because they can't make money off of booze sales. What bullcrap. What if a low income queer person without any ID needed to get away and be amongst their people for a night? What about sober queers?I was visiting NYC from Canada and wanted to visit this iconic place, but my friend (a tax paying working individual with a NY city ID) was denied entry saying they don't accept this form of ID. In her 4 years of living in NYC she's never been denied entry for her NYC ID. And to have it denied at Stonewall of all places was messed up.

LOVED IT. so full of history and so vibrant. Outdoor seating was great. Felt at home! We spent 4 hours here drinking in the sun and had such a great time. Highly recommend!!! Service was just ok but the experience was so great it didn’t bother us at all.

As a Gay Man I was Very Disappointed in the lack of qualified bartenders. I was there with cash in hand, and they proceeded to take 4 credit card orders of others that came in after without even the slightest polite word. Might as we'll have gone to a straight bar at least there I could have gotten a drink

Had a fun time at Stonewall while visiting NYC! There was a drag show going on upstairs and a typical bar setting downstairs. It was laid back and everyone seemed to be having a good time. The employees were nice too!

Come here for the history but stay here for the warm atmosphere, friendly service and good drinks. I always have a great time whenever I visit The Stonewall Inn. It’s a perfect spot in west village to hang out with friends. They often have shows/events in upstair section. Overall a must visit whether you are a local or a visitor.

The food is consistently fresh and tasty, cashiers hands out great service. I like how neat it is and vibes. I highly recommend this place.

A friendly venue for an afternoon cocktail in a friendly atmosphere. A fair number of customers are not locals but visitors from around our country.History is a shifting lens but the place of the Stonewall Inn in the annals of gay liberation are set in stone.The establishment has been designated a New York State Historic Site (bronze plaque at the entrance).

This place is absolutely fantastic, and of course dripping in history. It was an absolute pleasure to come here, and it was a highlight of our trip to New York. The staff here were super friendly and the drinks were inexpensive. I also found that the music was amazing and the place is brilliantly decorated. This in an absolute must-go place for any LGBTQ+ people who are interested in the history of LGBTQ+ rights in the US.

For being a Historic place that I hold great value transcending gay rights and over passing hardships. It pains me to give this place a one star simply because they don’t accept ID NYC. As the only way of identification for people like me . I have no other way to validate my identify other than what the great people of this city are allowing me to have. I’ve been here before without a problem supporting my great peers like Honey Davenport and Novazcar. Unfortunately I can’t support gay places that won’t support me simply because of my legal status.

I had a great day at Work and My friends and I decided to stop by stone wall and pay homages. However despite my great mood we were introduced to Peggy the bar tender. Talk about horrible service. FYI when stopping by here I hope you do not get the same treatment as I.Might I add. I believe In killing with kindness. I continue to be pleasant and sit at the bar while I wrote this review. #smiles make the world go wrong.

We stopped by and went upstairs to check out the live pianist. Both bartenders were fantastic singers, and the pianist takes requests; you can also sing karaoke style if you wish. This place is really great, and you’ll portably end your night here if you stop in.

Not bad. We liked. Nice place to stay. I especially liked the promotion for new visitors, you need to register on their website 909gay*com, create a profile, and show it to the bartender. You will be given a private room for 1 hour, and a free drink for two

Went out for an early birthday celebration and I must say from the moment we walked in, the staff was friendly and accommodating. Loved the look and the people there were fun. Definitely going back. 2 years Later and here we are once again, we went on a slow night and met this incredible bartender named Chuck. We had such a great time so we decided to go on Halloween to celebrate my birthday once again Chuck was AMAZING!!!

Stars are mostly for the historical significance of the place. Nowadays, it may me a good bar to just chill and have a reaaaaally relaxed time, rather than enjoying and having fun.It could really use way more staff, bartenders look perpetually busy even when the bar isn't that much.

It was my first time here and the staff was nice except for the bartenders. The second floor was so much fun but on the first floor the bartender practically ignored us even when we called him. After we finally got his attention, he told us to wait to get our drink order. We waited for almost 30 minutes and then decided to leave because he didn't acknowledged us after that. He only attended one side of the bar.

RUDE staff! The bartender completely ignored us while we waited for 30 minutes at the counter. We understood the place was relatively busy. We were more than patient with her. The several groups arriving before and after us had all be served. When we flagged her to remind her of our presence, she gave us attitude, exploding that she was serving customers sitting outdoors. All she had to say during our waiting and when we approached her would be: Sorry I’m busy and I’ll be right with you. The bartender has no sense of customer service, nor how to triage and prioritize. The usher and waiter outside were equally rude...These employees aren’t worthy of the namesake national monument status of the Stonewall Inn. Saturday, June 26, 2021, 4:30 pm ET.

Worth a visit for the history, very expensive for the drinks. $10 for a rum and coke in a tiny cup and $20 for a double rum and coke in a standard cup size. The cocktails were tiny (like small cup of water from the water cooler at the dentist waiting room tiny) and all around $15. The waiter wasn't the nicest, either, which didn't help the vibe. We left shortly after because it wasn't worth the money. The stars are really just because we love a gay business and historical icon.

Went here this past weekend with my friend after another bar we wanted to get into was fully packed. Bouncer was surprisingly very nice, as I've never been anywhere in NYC with a pleasant bouncer. She was tough but fair, if that makes sense. Anyway, we weren't expecting to get in because it was a Saturday night and this was the most famous/historic LGBTQ+ bar in NYC. We were able to get in anyway!We sat outside and the host was super kind and funny. Our waitress was very nice and patient with us not knowing right away exactly what we wanted to order for drinks. I loved the atmosphere and being in a place with other people like us, no judgement.5 stars, hell yeah!

The place paved the way for my generation and many generations to come.It brings back amazing memories.One of the things Stonewall still has going for it, “I’m told from Rick the owner of sip&snip one of the best places in NewYork to get your hair done. “ if you can get an appointment “Is that Tree is still working there.The guy is a legend in himself and Stonewall is very lucky to have him.I wouldn’t recognize the place without him.If I had to give him and Stonewall a score,He and it would get nine circles. LolHope your well Tree.Danny Arzon

Historic place, no doubt about it, yet with a warm and inviting environment. Here you will find a lot of interesting people to chat or a quiet place to chill if you are not in the mood, everybody will respect you the same. People from all around the Globe come and go and the spice of life is paying a visit to this old and still strong bar.
