It does seem that Bungalo isn't really happening these days.  Their bartender left, as did Rob.  Caos, Clic, Bungalo, Cave, something needs to last on that strip.  They just don't promote it well and don't work get a crowd coming in regularly (plus it being one night a week sucks).

I'm pretty sure that Krash closed because it moved to Manhattan a few years ago (big Friday night party).

I have said this all along, and I'll say it one more time.  What is needed in Astoria is another gay owned and operated bar that caters to the GLBT community seven days a week.  No more 'nights' at a straight establishment on their slow nights (hoping they can make a fast gay buck).

Anyone have the capital or desire to open a bar?  Be a trailblazer, I dare ya!

I agree completely.  I wish we had a fulltime gay bar somewhere near a train stop.

I guess Astoria is so close to Manhattan that most just choose to get on the train when they want to go out, I'm guilty of that ;)

We all are guilty of that, but that's why we live in Astoria.  Cheaper rent so we can afford to go out in the city.  Still, it would be nice to have a couple of different watering holes here just a hop skip and a jump from home.

and you wouldn't have to pay for a cab home if it was late or you didn't want to deal with the train.

I just always take the train anyway.  Where do you like to go out of the places around now?  I don't mind Albatross, but wouldn't go out of my way to go there either.  I know that Brick, Cafe Bar and Crescent Lounge have a big mixed crowd, but what about other nearby places?

I get to all three locations periodically, less so now that I'm in a relationship, but if they were gay all the time, I'd go there at least once a week, if not more, to be supportive.

I think Hump is no more, but I could be wrong.

Crescent Lounge is pretty gay nowadays, at least the handful of times I've been there. I've always had fun there and met new people, unlike bars in Chelsea or even the East Village. Last Friday night was mixed, but I'd guess more than 50% gay.

Crescent is a great place, very gay friendly too.  Are some nights gayer there than others?

Anytime I've been there I would say every guy was gay except for maybe one at the most.  There are a lot of women too, mayguess would also be about half the crowd as noted below.  I would say it's more a matter of what nights (and at what time) there are people there.
