    Terrific theater space that typically presents LGBTQ+ themed works.

    You could easily spend half a day wandering among the multi-floor exhibits in the heart of Times Square. The museum traces the history of Broadway from its early days to today's hits, with set pieces, costumes, and behind-the-scenes looks at big shows like "Wicked," "Rent," "Phantom of the Opera," and more.

    For anyone headed to NYC for Broadway and beyond, this is a must-visit! The rooms are small but well-appointed. The real gem is the incredible collection of theater memorabilia and incredible public spaces/design by famous scenic designer David Rockwell. Head to the rooftop bar to feel like you're floating above Manhattan.

    A great menu and environment if you're looking for a place to dine in Old Town. It's been around for a long time but still feels fresh, and its owner just won a James Beard Award for Best Restaurateur of the Year (2023).

    If you want to spoil yourself if Philly, this is the place to do it. This isn't a men's spa, but an upscale spa that offers facials, massage, and a bunch of high-tech treatments. Their retail section is also amazing for those who are skin-obsessed.

    It's the place to go in Philly if you're an oenophile. The crowd skews a bit older and it's got a traditional vibe (part of the Penn's View Hotel), but the wine list is packed with over 120 selections by the glass.

    Gorgeous! It's the perfect place for a date or low-key cocktail in style. Really innovative cocktails and small bites with a Swedish theme (but not of the IKEA variety). Feels like a speakeasy and looks unassuming from the outside, which adds to the charm.

    A stunning property that pays homage to the women of Philadelphia. Modern luxury with historical touches in the heart of the Gayborhood. It's a virtual check-in, so guests should be tech-savvy enough to communicate with staff by instant message and coded entry to the property and rooms

    A fantastic spot for a pre- or post-theater cocktail. Different levels offer different vibes, and the rooftop is great, too.

    A super buzzy vibe can be found in this boutique property, with lots of design touchpoints and creative nooks for those who like to explore the details. Rooms are minimalist but charming, which makes for a nice break from the high-traffic public spaces. Don't miss the rooftop!

    A quick stroll from Jackson Square, the LGBTQ+-friendly staff shakes up craft cocktails worth checking out, along with a cute garden in the back if it's not too hot. Expect fresh takes on NOLA classics and a super vinegary/spicy Bloody Mary at brunch

    Luxury digs conveniently located within walking distance of shops, Old Town, transportation, and the Ligurian Sea. Small but charming rooftop pool and restaurant.

    A New Orleans classic, but it feels a bit mechanical after so many years of operation. Not the place to worry about calorie count, but desserts and cocktails can be cloyingly sweet.

    One of the most unique dining experiences in NYC, helmed by queer chef-owners. Located in the East Village, which is also a great location for pre- or post-dinner cocktails and nightlife.
