By Matt SperoThe New York Gay Bar & Grill has its sights set on opening its first gay-themed venue in Manhattan.
The first location is in Bedford-Stuyvesant, just west of Central Park, where it will open on March 11, the company announced on its website Wednesday.
The bathhouse will have a bar, a dance floor and a lounge area.
The location will open at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, and a limited number of guests will be allowed inside the bathhouse for a pre-dinner cocktail and a photo op, according to the announcement.
It will have three screens on the floor, and it will be open from 9 a.m.-2 p.d.
Each guest will be able to pay by credit card.
The venue will be available for breakfast and dinner on Sunday mornings, and will be staffed with bartenders.
There are more than 400 gay and lesbian businesses in the New York area.
The city’s Pride parade will be held on Sunday at noon, and there are plans to bring more events to the area as well.
The company has been working to open more gay-friendly venues in the city for a few years.
In 2016, the gay bath houses at The Bathhouse in New Jersey and Baskin-Robbins in Atlanta opened, and more locations are on the way.
