Marie's Crisis - New York City Gay and lesbian
This West Village piano bar might be my (straight and female) roommate's favorite bar in the world, since it's rare to find a spot in the city where it's socially acceptable to belt the Les Miserables soundtrack. For decades, Marie's Crisis has been a prime sport for musical theater performers and non-professional enthusiasts alike to warm up their pipes, with skilled pianists drawing from a seemingly endless catalog of Broadway shows. Cheap drinks and showtunes aside, the bar itself is practically a work of art, sitting on the site at which Common Sense (and The American Crisis) author Thomas Paine died in 1809.
