We're also anticipating bars being packed for viewing parties. If you're looking to head out with your friends to watch the show, here are the best options to catch the season nine premiere in New York City. 

Bars throwing premiere parties for the big season opener in the city include a mix of gay bars and straight bars. Venues like Hardware BarTherapy NYCBoxers NYCAlbatross Bar, Rockbar NYC and Suite Bar NYC are all throwing viewing parties for the show.
