Henrietta Hudson (lesbian) bar Aug 14, 2009
First time venturing here was part of the celebrate Pride Week and help my friend Nance find a girlfriend because she "is sick of men" installment. I've since gone a couple more times as wing woman.
The music playlist was mostly Top 40s, hip hop club music, interspersed with a little Lady Gaga, and then just Latin music, not to my music taste. Fortunately, any of the women out there who want to go to Henrietta's can check out the playlist on their website before they go to see if the $10 cover charge will be worth it to them.
Upon entering, the bar is RIGHT there, the layout is a bit awkward with the small dance floor also right where the entrance is. There was a t.v. screen showing the music being played, a cage for exhibitionist lesbians to hump each other which some were during Pride Week ;). There was also a flashy Las Vegas type go-go dancer performing on top of the bar. They also have a pool table.
There are three bathroom I think, clean and well stocked, and another bar in the back. Some drinks are $5+ but mostly in the $10+ range. The bar near the entrance takes cash only, the one in the back take credit card.
The crowd was comprised of butch older lesbians, teenage looking converse shoe wearers, and couples. Poor Nance did not find her choices appealing, she did not want a "cougar," nor a lolita, and the rest of the women seemed to be coupled. So ladies looking for some love might want to look elsewhere. I had fun that night though, was very welcoming and festive, though my Latin dancing leaves something to be desired.
