A previous GLAM door goddess nominee and an entire Brooklyn institution, Molly Rhinestones is a sparkling delight on either side of the bar.
Bar(s) that I work at: Macri Park, Metropolitan, and Paragon
How long I’ve worked there: I’ve been at Macri since we reopened. I’ve been doing a number of different jobs at Metro for an amount of years I am not disclosing because just like Fran Drescher, I am forever 28.
What are my shifts: I’m at Macri Tuesday and Sunday nights, Metro Friday and Saturdays, and Paragon for every one of Frankie Sharp’s “Demons” parties
What makes this bar / these bars great: the community. The staff is such a family and that spills out into the overall vibe. I have met so many life long friends here.
Best drink I make: vodka soda…..(I secretly make a killer Blue Hawaiian, which is also my secret favorite basic bitch drink, but only ask me if it’s not busy)
I love it when customers: are hot, tell me I’m pretty, bring me snacks (especially goldfish), and overtip
I hate it when customers: I mean obviously being a bad tipper is the least sexy thing you can be. But also, people who complain about cover are so low vibrational. Cover is how entertainment gets paid….respect the girls or go to the TGI Fridays where you belong. I also hate when straight women woo girl in the bar. I swear it works like dolphin echolocation for them to find each other so they can go buy the most annoying specialty shot you have ever heard of.
Craziest thing I’ve seen here: I feel like the first ten things I can think of I am going to get in trouble for saying, lol.
Other places I’ve worked: like literally every gay bar in NY.
My hometown: Oklahoma City
Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: I love sewing–particularly ball gowns, and snuggling my dog, Garland Judy
Single or Taken: Can I say both? Lol I’m gonna say both. Y’all are welcome to slide into my dms.
Who/what turns me on: I’m deeply bisexual. The best pickup line I ever got was “how do you want me to murder you tonight?” Gonna leave it at that. Okay, except actually lol… I feel like this is my chance to advertise that I have been trying to get railed on a pinball machine like Lana Del Rey in the “Ride” video….so just throwing that out there.
Favorite music: Lana Del Rey “A&W” on repeat
Favorite movie or TV show: Moonstruck, Peau d’ane, Sedmikrasky, and the “Lucy Lucy Apple Juicy” arc of season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Favorite drag queen: Countess Luann
My drag name would be: Molly Rhinestones
Favorite gogo boy: I love all the babes equally (but Angel 💖)
Favorite DJ: I have so many favorite DJs but Charlene playing the Phantom of the Opera remix at the first “Demons” is my favorite moment from a set this year, like jaw on the floor, lol
Other stuff you need to know about me: Capricorn Sun, Virgo Rising, Scorpio Moon, and I don’t want to talk about my Aquarius
