Henrietta Hudson is a queer human space built by Lesbians.

Henrietta Hudson has not only survived but thrived for 30 years and is embarking upon a massive reinvention of its legendary space. It will be a while before packed dance clubs are back in full swing, so we're adapting and changing our model from a crowded nightclub to a spacious, airy lounge for the community to gather safely.

We’re back with a cross between a living room and a petite cafe dressed in rich mid-century modern color palettes, featuring comfy chairs, plush ottomans, work nooks, and a dining area.

Along with these interior upgrades, we're also adding a stylish outdoor enclave for guests to enjoy, a new charcuterie bar, and a revitalized cocktail menu.

Please Note: In line with the CDC, you must present your Vaccination Card or a negative Covid test within the last 24 hours to be able to enter the Bar, this policy is to keep both our Team Members and the Community Safe

    I placed a reservation at HH and was placed outside. The bartenders skipped me around 10 times before I was given any attention. Overall was not a great time.

    Sat outside which was nice. Service was phenomenal. Tiger is exceptional. She was wonderfully attentive. Drank a few FOMOs, enjoyed happy hour and chowed down on the charcuterie board and guac - tasty snacks.

    Love what this place is becoming recently and I appreciate all changes that are done! Food and drinks are good! My only issue would be the size of cocktails for $15 it’s a way small glass, 90% filled with ice.

    We had my fiancé’s birthday party there last night. We had a table from 7:30- 10pm. Georgie was our server. They accommodated us so beautiful. Their energy was always calming through the music and the people! When they needed to take our table we were able to move to another seating area in which Georgie offered us tickets to come in and it was like we were VIP, the stars were so aligned! Alena was great inside. They always had such a smile and made sure we had waters/drinks and that we were having a good time all in all. Evelyn the security at the door was so sweet and made us all feel safe. At one point I had to check on someone and they let me go outside and even held my drink for me while I handled that. It was not something they had to do but. Was so sweet to do so. We stayed until 3:30 am and there wasn’t a moment we didn’t feel taken care of. Thank you all so much for making that night so special and can’t wait to celebrate more good times with you!

    The experience was great! We did order extra shots which were $11 each :0 but other than that it was great value! It came with 2 charcuterie boards, a big pretzel, and 2 beers/pp.

    My friend and I miss the old Henrietta Hudson, which was affordable for all. This new Henrietta Hudson truly appeals to the wealthy queer community. Truly disappointed, and will likely not return.

    Fun, energetic vibe, and such a great place to spend an evening out. The drinks were delicious, the service was spot on (exactly when you needed it, but never felt rushed or hovered over). So come on out and support one of the best queer spaces in the city!

    We came after a movie at IFC and the staff took great care of us! We were seated in the charming parklet, safe from rain and wind. It felt magical and special. The cocktails were delicious (highly recommend the Bitter Lady), the charcuterie and guacamole plates were yummy, and the pretzels were off the hook! But the best thing was the attentive, warm, and engaging staff. Thank you Henrietta Hudson! I'll be back!

    Our server was very pushy with making us order bottle service. The serve kept coming back every five minutes asking us if we were going to order more drinks. We were not given any water. After asking multiple times for water, when we asked for a refill it never came. Our server was absolutely terrible. I work in a restaurant and I know what customer service should be like, but this wasn't it. My cousin got a bit sick from stomach issues and had to use the restroom, one of the employees banged on the bathroom and demanded he get out. While we were waiting for our Uber they made us move away from the restaurant. We spent way too much money to be treated so disgustingly. Everyone attitude was very condescending and rude. Queer spaces are supposed to make you feel welcomed but we did not feel welcomed. This place isn’t what it used to be because of the new employees.

    I have been coming to Hens my whole life and I am overjoyed to see it re-opening. The night was absolute perfection, nothing short of my expectations. The new GM, Shaunie, I believe that was her name, did a table touch on several occasions and the staff as a whole were excellent. I can’t wait for my next visit! Welcome Home Hens! 💝
