If you’re looking for a lively place to check out some colorful costumes a week from today, we would surmise that Valhalla’s B Lounge, located across the street from the Valhalla train station, would be a good bet on Halloween.
B Lounge is Westchester’s one and only gay bar, reports Westchester Magazine. Its proprietors were behind Stutz Bar in White Plains, which served the county’s gay community for years but closed almost a decade ago.
In steps B Lounge, which is crystal clear about who its target customer is:
“The newest and trendiest lounge in Westchester!” reads its website. “Westchester’s ONLY premiere all gay lounge!”
One error we saw in the Westchester Mag account: the article says that not only is B Lounge the county’s only gay bar, but it is also the only bar in Valhalla.
In fact, right across the street is the converted train station that now serves up many, many tap beers and decent pub grub: Valhalla Crossing.
Westchester Mag never tires of talking up the 9-1-4 as the Greatest Place on Earth whose amenities and offerings and residents are second to none; not even that city of 8 million a few miles south. (On salons: “Think you need to go south for Manhattan-style cuts and color? Think again.” On antiques: “ You don’t have to trek into Manhattan to find pieces with pedigree.” On restaurants: “If you think that Westchester’s restaurants can’t compare to Manhattan’s, we’re hardly sad to inform you that you’re wrong.”)
I can see the story coming up soon: If you think Chelsea’s got a lively gay nightlife scene, you should check out Valhalla!
