Best Bar

Five travel pros tell us about their favorite bar or nightclub (gay, straight or otherwise).

Horse Meat Disco at Crown and Anchor, Provincetown, Mass.
“My annual disco pilgrimage. The bars close at 1am so you’re sure to hear all your favorite songs before you even start to get sleepy.” ~ Mac Malikowski, editor, Mouthfeel magazine

Cactus Bar, Javea, Spain
“Hidden on the mountainous slopes that look over the Spanish town of Javea, this locals' spot where you drink and dance amongst orchards is one of the best hidden treasures I have ever discovered. Tough to find but so worth it.”  ~Jos Davies, Global Head of Marketing, Black Tomato

Red Rooster, New York, NY
“All the cocktails are handcrafted and I love the live music. Plus, if you’re hungry the food is amazing (get the fried yardbird).” ~ Brandon Voss, President, Voss Events

Ritz Bar, Ritz Hotel, Paris, France (photo above)
“Recently reopened, it was gorgeous. The staff knew how to take care of a woman at the bar sitting alone. How to treat people in general. How to make us feel as special as the place we were sitting in. It made a $30 cocktail seem reasonable. No regrets.” ~ Donna Keren, SVP, Research, NYC & Company

Hanky Panky, Mexico City, Mexico
“I’d pick this speakeasy solely for the sheer excitement and drama of trying to get in. Hidden behind a secret door in the back of a taqueria, you can only gain entrance if you’re invited. Once you get the green light, however, you’ll find a moody space filled with some of the sexiest people in the city.” ~Bryan van Gorder, Editor, OutTraveler
