New York's Finest....Bartenders


New York's NEXT magazine was good enough to share a few exclusive outtakes from the shoot for its annual pull-out calendar with Towleroad.

The calendar features NYC bartenders shot by photographers Troy Phillips and Akimitsu Sadoi in the bars where they work. The bars involved this year are Barracuda, Posh, Vlada, Evolve, Splash, Stonewall Inn, No Parking, Gym Sportsbar, therapy, The Monster, D-Tox, and The Ritz. The boys are also showing off some C-IN2 underwear.

For you New Yorkers, the calendar, which they promise is packed with dates important to your social schedules, comes out in Friday's issue. The photos will also be posted at NEXT's website Friday.

Above, Frank from Barracuda.

Five more men — Ashton and Juan Castro from Evolve, Anton from The Ritz, and Jeff and Erwin from Splash Bar, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Frank's thighs, meet Dback's tongue. Dback's tongue, meet Frank's thighs--for starters.

  4. Ageist crap. Where are the tenders over 40? Amazing that they're referred to as "boys". "Oh well, youth, it's wasted on the young."

  5. The bartender at my bar is a drag queen in a red wig and pearls usually with a Chanel type suit on....except that he doesn't shave or wear makeup.....guy looks just like my grandfather in a wig except not as hot.

  8. How sad to see the gay community stoop to the same appearance demagoguery as you see in straight men with their images of women in bikinis. We are no different, frankly.

  9. If that's NY's finest bartenders, then they can have them. There's more grease in those pics than in all that fried chicken we eat down here in OK. Yuk.

  10. Where's the bartenders that look like Ricky Martin??? With fur?

  11. wow, i used to work at abercrombie with Anton. He's put on quite a bit of muscle and looks great.

    And as for Jason's post: Since when HASN'T the gay community been on par with, if not even more taken to, demagoguery when compared to straight men? There's a time and a place for holier-than-thou rhetoric and I doubt a Towleroad post about gay NY bartenders is one of them. I take it you ordinarily would skip through the posts which admire the male physique, but THIS time you could not be silent!

    We're all holding our breath for that hot editorial of bartenders with fabulous minds.

  13. Frank can top up my Screaming Orgasm any day of the week!

  14. Anton can serve me anytime!! (or vice versa, lol!)

  15. As a fellow NYC bartender, I'm so glad I don't have to take my clothes off just to make just as much money as they do.

    Then again, I'm assuming they're getting paid a lot for this shoot . . .

  16. Frank, Anton and Jeff can serve me anytime.. or vice versa.

  17. Anton is straight. Don't know about the rest of them.

  18. JASON,

    you are right that gay men and straight men are no different in that regard. beside that, what is your point?

    Posted by: nic | Dec 12, 2008 7:02:02 AM

  19. Frank is in those Levi's Ads on LOGO. Totally hot!

    Posted by: mike | Dec 12, 2008 7:14:22 AM

  20. Havent seen all the bartender photos yet but all i gotta say is the hottest bartender is Ben from downstairs at Gym Bar. just wait til u see. he's a straight one tho :(

  21. It's amazing to see the vitriol come out from gays when something like this goes up on Towleroad. So much bitter projection. Why can't people admire or not, or just leave well enough alone.

    These are fine looking guys. It's a pull-out calendar, for God's sake. It is what it is. Objectification of beauty whether it's gay or straight is fine with me. Not everyone's going to have the same opinion about it, and if we did, then the world would be a truly horrible place.

    Some of the bitter people on this thread should take a good look in the mirror and check out the ugly soul that's looking back.

  22. Some may be bitter, Tom. I can't speak for them. And these guys are nice eye-candy, no doubt. But, IMHO, this sampling shows a very narrow view of NYC bartenders -- although I wouldn't expect any better from NEXT.

    In all fairness though, I haven't seen the entire calendar.

  23. Well nobody's going to mention the elephant in the room, so I will: Ashton is shamelessly plugging Captain Morgan.

    Posted by: TikiHead | Dec 12, 2008 9:04:14 AM

  24. These guys are hot, no doubt, but I agree with HUGHMAN: when I lived in NYC from 94-99, the bartenders at Splash were some MANLY dudes (god they were so hot/dreamy to this 24 y.o. at the time!!!)

    Posted by: Mike | Dec 12, 2008 9:18:27 AM

  25. maybe after midnight, in bad lighting, after a few drinks...
