Pretty cool place. Reasonably priced drinks. Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Oh and some pretty cute chicks.


$10 cover for an empty juke box bar, not worth it in my opinion. I'd rather go someplace friendly than pay to have the staff be rude to me...

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/16/2013

Henrietta Hudson is the longest running lesbian bar in the country and we are alive & well in NYC!!! We are open 365 days a year!!! WE are alive & kickin!!! more

Not worth it 5/24/2012

The place is ok on Saturdays but the staff is extremely rude... I would go there more often if I was treated better (I am a CUSTOMER - why would I get treated differently?)... I guess the owner or Manager are too busy to train the staff... What a shame!!! more

Isles of Lesbians????????? 3/31/2010

Oh please Henrietta is so boring,the music sucks.The only thing new about this place is that the pool table isn't there any more.Henrietta only became known after ""Crazy Nannies"" closed.This person who think this place is the isle of lesbians, perhaps a newbie and never being to this club before.Yeah isles of rude staff members.water down drinks.dirty bath rooms,no coats hangers.Henrietta is no place i would suggest.Non New Yorker perhaps would find it quite cool because they have no ides.Real New Yorkers knows the deal. Cons: Same crap different days more

$10 to be harassed by rude staff? 11/19/2008

After being greeted by the SO OBNOXIOUS AND RUDE ""Bouncers"". (I think the title does more justice, than there not so intimidating faces) You must pay $10 to enter this dump. Sooooo not worth it. So I have taken matters in my own hands... Get the word out and join in boycotting hen's. They MUST make changes. \r

discrimination 3/1/2008

I went there 3/01/08 with six women and five men. We were of mixed sexual preference (gay, bisexual and strait men and women). The men were not allowed to enter because we weren't on the ""guest list""!! Henrietta's is not a private club, so why the ""guest list""? We thought it was advertised as a friendly atmosphere! I was suprised to see that there is still such discrimination! And by the gay community! We are supposed to be above that, having experienced it so much. As we walked away another group of men made the remark that all gay women hate men...I don't believe that...only Henrietta Hudson's does! Cons: did not allow men inside more

Best Lesbian/Gay Bar 11/17/2007

Classic. If you haven't been to Henriettas - you really are missing out... It is the first lesbian/gay bar that I have been to in NYC and it truly was one of the best. The other places that I have been - have only been ""party nights"" at Straight Bars/Clubs ... at Henriettas you are bound to meet up with a hot lesbian or make a new friend to party with in the city. The place is quite small but thats what makes it so much fun. Hey, you can never lose who you came in with!! There are two pool tables in the second room, two full bars, and two bathrooms!!! There is one DJ who spins a variety of music that changes throughout the night... Thursdays are free and known for the hip hop and salsa ... the bartender DEE is wonderful and the bouncers are sooo sweet. Sometimes there are go-go dancers that perform on the mini-stage / pole (which is open to the regular public when they are not there [wink] ) There is a happy-hour and many people show up after work in their full-suits which is always a pleasure... check it out - you'll def have a terrific time\r \r *** spring and summer are the best because of the outside area *** Pros: Music, Cheap Drinks, Beautiful Girls Cons: Crowded more

Girl Crazy 5/16/2007

It was in fact the first 'gay' bar in NYC that i went to -- as well as the first 'lesbian' bar i've ever been to. Possibly the best time to go is during pride -- so many different faces... \r packed. more

Highly Recommended to meet women 12/24/2005

I have been coming to this bar since before it was Henrietta Hudson thats how long I have been going to this bar yes it is a small cramped loud and deliciously filled with wall to wall women. Womens bars come and go as we all know but this bar has been around for long time why? Because it has what it takes to keep a womans bar going and that is? A Lot of women from all over. I love this bar even though you cant hear yourself talk but hey if its women you want to meet and have a good time as well then this is the place. I truly give this bar a high recommendation and hope that it remains open for a long long time. more

nice spot 10/17/2004

My first bar to go to in New York....and girl was it fun. Met the bartender -Dee who was extra nice and super sweet. I also got a few numbers ...with some great prospects. New York is just great !!! more

real-estate 6/22/2004

First time at H.H and the vibe was great! Alot of girls, very crowded. Being from Toronto,Canada the scene was very different. There are so many more hotties here!! Plus Lisa G- D.J is awesome! Everyone who worked there made us feel so at home. We danced and got totally ripped and it was fantastic. I can't wait to go back. Pros: great vibe, good looking people, inexpensive Cons: , crowded, music could be better more

Horrible Night 2/7/2004

Drove for 2 hour thinking it was going to be the day of my life, finally at the door I get searched by a male bouncer who was rude to begin with, once inside I couldn't talk to anyone because it was so crowded and loud I couldn't hear my self speak. My biggest dream got shattered in 40 minutes. more

missin it already 7/11/2003

The atmosphere is great, if you like meeting all kinds of different girls; the bartenders are great, although some of them gotta go. It's really small, but pleasant if not too crowded. Variety of music is an excellent idea. I like the fact that there are only females over there, which sometimes that's what you are exactly looking for. So far it's the best spot that I found and you feel that you could be yourself at. For some of the chika's that work there, thank you for making my weekly time pleasant. My girl really enjoyed it! more

Finally...Lesbian Chic 1/2/2003

After years of searching, a lesbian bar that is actually worth weathering a storm for. Beautiful interior that is not pretentious or outdated, cozy yet not cramped; very neighborhood, but not unwelcoming. Young, feminine, not stereotypical clientel adds to an enjoyable, satisfying evening in the west village. Pros: pretty girls, good music more

HH is the place to be 12/21/2002

This is basically the only bar I go to anymore. Weeknights are calm and relaxing with a friendly after work crowd. And on Weds. the DJ spins my childhood favorites and has no problem taking requests. Saturdays the place is pumping. Wall to wall ladies. And there's no trouble getting one or five to dance. Dee's at the back bar and never waters down a drink. The dancers are hot!!!! Don't know why it didn't get best bar again this year. The only bad points are Saturdays there's lines to get in and longer ones for coat check and the bathroom. Plus there tends to be a few to many straight guys parked in front of the stage. Pros: Only $5.00, Great drinks, Friendly crowd Cons: CROWDED!!!, Long Lines, Straight men need to more

Cool Thursdays 10/28/2002

I love thursdays at HH. Why? It's FREE and they play hip hop, salsa, and R&B...Love it! more

Absolutely loved it! 9/5/2002

My first time here last night. Me and my firends had a wonderful time. I expected more lesbians and it seemed there were more straight people. Th atmosphere was great, the music was great, the service was excellent and the crowd was very friendly!!!!!!! I'd definitely go back to this place. Pros: Great parking, Great service, Great music Cons: Not enough lesbians, Too many straights more

weeknights at Henrietta's 8/7/2002

This is the best place to go for happy hour during the week. The bartender is so friendly and good at what she does. Everyone should go to Henrietta's, just 'cause it's the best lesbian bar in town. Just be prepared for Fridays and Saturdays 'cause this place is so popular it is fully packed. It's undergoing major renovation now so it's going to be even better than it was before! Head on down! Pros: cute chicks, good service, GREAT happy hour Cons: crowded on weekends, crowded on weekends, crowded on weekends more

Bridge n' Tunnelicious! 7/23/2002

Big hair, aloof bartenders, crowded atmosphere. Sure,m it's a neighborhood favorite, but really - where else do we have to go? more

  • A casual, welcoming hangout complete with videos and jukebox. It gets pretty packed most nights, so don't expect to get anywhere near the pool table unless you arrive extra early. Bands and DJs...
