Henrietta Hudson has been a long serving Bar & Night Club, that has provided a safe and inclusive space for not only the LGBTQIA+ community, but anyone that is hanging out in the West Village.

The bar was opened in 1991 by Lisa Cannistraci & Minnie Rivera, and has become the longest standing Lesbian bar in the Country.

Here at Henrietta Hudson we believe in Community and making an Impact, which has driven us to re open with a new concept from a Bar & Night Club to a Mid Century Bar & Lounge.

We want to re create our space where you feel at home and appreciated when you come to work as well as a place for everyone in the community to feel safe and re connect.

Within this entirely new concept we will be offering a range of elevated wines, beers and cocktails along with a Charcuterie Bar.

Due to the current state of the Pandemic for New York our entire new concept will consist of indoor and outdoor, seated table service. Our guest will have the options of ordering a selection of small plates such as meats and cheese along with a wide selection of new drinks, and also an opportunity to suit themselves up in our new Henrietta Hudson Branded swag, from our in store & online gift shop.
