Tuesday (Karaoke), Thursday (Hard Up) and Saturday (Sinful Saturdays) Bartender, “Voice of Pieces” on Social Media
Bedecked with multicolored lights illuminating its name, Pieces stands out even on Christopher Street. Inside, a bevy of disco balls reflect Christmas lights adorning the walls. Every night’s a show, but the equally colorful clientele get a chance to shine at the ever-popular Karaoke Tuesdays, featuring a diverse selection of songs (though not without the requisite Judy and Barbra). Liquid Brunch on Saturday and Sunday afternoons afford ample opportunities to cruise for a cheap date to go with your cheap drink.
New York MagCritics' Pick
A West Village staple, this comfortably ramshackle neighborhood hangout with homemade decor offers a solid value during its 2 to 8 p.m. happy hour, when you’ll get $3 liquor, beer, and wine. But even after 8 p.m., the drinks are still a value at $6 — and shots are a buck. If you’re around on the weekend, you might head this way for drag queen bingo after a boozy brunch.
Village VoiceBest of NYC Award
A personal fave of mine, ranked in order of sheer fabulousness, factoring in their ambience, staff, events, and history. This is the gay Cheers — a haven to come back to again and again, for all its no-frills splendor.

Karaoke, wild? At Pieces (8 Christopher St.; 212-929-9291), the singers are fierce, the booze is cheap, and the décor is cheesy—a potent admixture. You’ll get a heavy dose of sparkly rainbow décor replete with multiple disco balls. The extremely perky (and boyishly cute) staff hosts a different party every night, each with a different theme.
