Best Straight Bar for Gays

Hamilton's Ultra Lounge

Those of us old enough to remember rue the day when Keys nightclub closed and left the city's gay glitterati without a late-night hang on Playhouse Square. But last year, Marc Hewlett opened Hamilton's, a gay-friendly bistro conveniently located near the theaters. A hot spot for artsy queer eyes, the club has earned respect for its cleverly constructed theme nights. And Hewlett himself moonlights on weekends as DJ Tinkerbell, with a hi-NRG catalog of house and techno spins.
