Bar Babe of the Week: Julian at Ty’s

Required West Village weekend activity: stepping in to Ty’s and getting served by this sexnugget (who also plays the best music video mixes of all time). We love Julian!

Bar that I work at: Ty’s Bar, 114 Christopher St.

How long I’ve worked there: Almost 6 years (really…?!)

What are my shifts: Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday 8 to closing every night.

What makes this bar great: Ty’s is turning 45 this fall; I guess that fact alone tells the whole story.

Best drink I make: Raspberry cakes (delicious and dangerous!)

I love it when customers: Are totally enjoying themselves!

I hate it when customers: Start acting stupid or walk in with an attitude or a chip on their shoulder, blah!

Craziest thing I’ve seen here: What haven’t I seen?! Especially back in the day when Boots was still part of Christopher! I’m gonna be a gentleman about this and plead the fifth here, lol!

Other places I’ve worked:
I’ve been pouring at many places all over the city but what you really wanna know is that XES (RIP) gave me my very first chance ever at a gay bar, it was a holiday party, I wore nothing but my undies, beautiful memory!!

My hometown: Sunny and trendy California!

Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: Concerts and independent film (and no, I’m not being snobby!)

Single or Taken: Single (sigh!)

Who/what turns me on: Jim Silvestri (wink!!)

Favorite music: Punk, Goth, New Wave, SynthPop, Glam, World, Jazz, House, Electro, Drum & Bass, Trip-Hop, HNRG, Jungle, EuroTrash, Ambient, Industrial, Garage, Surf, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Metal, and basically everything that is NOT top 40, or Taylor Swift related or EDM /Du(m)bstep related (yuck!)

Favorite movie or TV show: RuPaul’s Drag Race! You know it!

Favorite drag queen: Raja! There’s more than lip syncing to Britney or Beyoncé and she knows it!

My drag name would be: BeYAWNcé lol

Favorite gogo dancer: I can’t really point out any specific name, with that said “Fire in the Hole” at Nowhere Bar has always tickled me in the right places with their ginger gogo boys!

Favorite DJ: Tough one! What about favorite a DJ that I miss and it’s not longer in NY? Aaron Tilford!

Other stuff you need to know about me: A lot of people have this misconception about me being mean and grumpy all the time, I’m totally not!! I guess those are just my natural face features, I’m as sweet as a peach!!

Follow me on: Facebook & Instagram (No Grindr or Growlr or BBRT, sorry!)
