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...

  2. This is so true.
    Every time we go out, my hubby says to me "Why is the waiter and bartender hotter than any of the dancers?"

    BTW, if you like these guys, YOU'LL LOVE MONTREAL!!!

  3. @Strepsi: I couldn't agree more. Those Montreal boys are a delight. If there were a job in my field in Montreal, there would be a big sucking sound and then I'd be gone.

  5. Last time I was Barracuda my partner and I had the pleasure of meeting the manager of the bar. He explained to us that his bartenders were all straight, most bars in NYC use the practice -- according to him. So I guess this calendar is a lot like our porn -- gay for pay for the camera.

  6. Frank's definitely not straight. That I can tell you for a fact.

  8. I'd take Frank or Jeff any time. Woof!

    It does seem, though, that the media representation is much less diverse than the reality of whom many of us lust after.

    And I'll second Strepsi: Montreal boys are the hottest! We're there now, with a foot of snow and more coming... Unfortunately they all have to wrap up in winter, but it's always such a joy in spring/summer when all the layers start coming off!

  9. I love Jeff from Splash! He's mine and my friends favorite bartendar. He's always so nice and happy, never has a bad night and always remembers what you need even with it gets crazy packed. You can always find us on Friday night right after work in the lower level laughing with Jeffy and loving the fact that his uniform is a small pair of chonies and sneakers...

    He get's tipped very well...
