Tucked away behind the Bank Club is a horseshoe counter with stool seating. Sit down and either Wally or one of his friendly employees will greet you with a bowl of hot, spicy lentil soup. No, you didn't order it, nor did you order the baklava that will arrive with your bill. Tuck in, you're in good hands with this crew. Wally bills the fare as "Mediterranean & More," and that's an understatement.

Fondly known as the "White Ho," the White Horse Inn is one of the oldest gay bars in the country. Built in 1936, the white building at the corner of 66th and Telegraph with a flag of a horse draped out front and cigarette butts like confetti on the sidewalk doesn't appear to echo much of its rich past. But inside, the bar is a lively place and welcoming to all walks of life, with a big-screen TV playing continuous karaoke and a single pool table to fight over underneath. Three nights of the week, DJs spin a variety of dance, Top 40, and hip-hop; in addition, there's lively karaoke every Monday and Tuesday nights, drag shows on Wednesdays, and breast cancer charity bingo games Thursday afternoons. No cover charge on Thursdays, otherwise it ranges from $5-$10.
