Bar Babe of the Week: Adam at Therapy

Actor, web show creator and all-around Bae Adam is a staple of Therapy Bar and all of HK nightlife!


Bar that I work at: Therapy

How long I’ve worked there: Since September of ‘17

What are my shifts: Wednesday and Friday Happy Hour, Thursday and Sunday night

What makes this bar great: Therapy offers a variety of options for an all-inclusive experience in Hell’s Kitchen. There is something for everyone. I always felt welcomed at Therapy, even before I started working there. I love it even more now that I am apart of this family.

Best drink I make: I have been told I make an outstanding Manhattan.

I love it when customers: Can feel relaxed at my bar. I try to make it feel as comfortable and welcoming as possible, and if you acknowledge that feeling, then it makes both our experiences that much better.

I hate it when customers: Try to flag/wave me down. I know when you have walked up to the bar and I have put you in my mind’s order. Waving at me just makes you get further down the line in my head.

Craziest thing I’ve seen here: Someone had come in with a date and sat at my bar. They were all over each other. Then one of them started really hitting on me hard and the boyfriend or date (whatever he was) saw this and grabbed the guy and body slammed him over a bar stool. We obviously kicked them out right away. That was probably the craziest thing I’ve seen at Therapy. I’ve seen way worse at other bars.

Other places I’ve worked: I bartended out on Fire Island at Cherry’s in Cherry Grove. I also bartended and managed a restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen called B Squared.

My hometown: New Orleans, LA

Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: I still enjoy the nightlife scene. I attend a lot of drag shows and cabarets, but I also enjoy going to Broadway shows. As long as it is something creative, I will be there to experience it.

Single or Taken: I am single.

Who/what turns me on: Someone who can carry a conversation is someone I find attractive. I have a lot of types of physical turn-ons, but I tend to be attracted to guys with a little more hair and a little thicker. I love a pretty face, too.

Favorite music: Haha, I tend to be a top 40’s Pop kind of guy. My favorite song is probably “We Found Love” by Calvin Harris.

Favorite movie or TV show: Well there will always be one TV show I could watch over and over again: The Golden Girls. I  watched it with my grandmother when I was a kid and loved it. I still to this day watch it with the same enthusiasm.

Favorite drag queen: I enjoy many and am friends with many. I even dated a drag queen for a couple of years, but the one drag queen that has always been my favorite is Varla Jean Merman. I met her in Provincetown 6 years ago and fell in love with her. She is hysterical, and a hot man out of drag.

My drag name would be: Sara Tonin

Favorite gogo boy: I always thought Zahk Michael Flynn was sexy and a great guy too.

Favorite DJ: That’s a tough one, but I would have to pick DJ TK in Hell’s Kitchen.

Other stuff you need to know about me: I am also an actor, and becoming a producer. I produced my own web series called 5 to 9. It’s a comedy about gay nightlife in NYC.
