Our showcase of Besties winners starts off with the popular bar Blackbird, which won for both Best Gay/Gay-Friendly Bar and Best Place for Mixed Drinks. A hit since it opened, the tasty cocktails, beers and wines attract a nice mix of gay, straight and "Who cares?" clientele. Located near the busy intersection of Church and Market streets, Blackbird is a perfect destination for early evening drinks during their 5pm to 8pm Happy Hour for meet-ups before heading out to a show or dinner.
