Buddies began in the Summer of 2008 as a relaxed, friendly place to meet up with friends and make some new ones. Since then, it has become the premiere weekly go-to party in NYC for men of all stripes—especially those of the beefy, bearded set. Really eclectic music sets and great drink prices help keep the packed-in room super friendly. Normally every Tuesday, Buddies switches gears for one night only to welcome everyone in to town for Urban Bear NYC.
