Best Lesbian Bar 


When is a bar more than its building? When it's Novak's. Losing her original Manchester Road location didn't seem to faze the energetic Nancy Novak -- she just shifted business to the cozy upstairs bar at Magnolia's and started work on a new Novak's. Mag's upstairs bar is lean, smoky and stocked with an ample supply of whatever liquid you'd like to consume; the entertainment varies from an open-mic night (Tuesdays) to themed parties, all detailed on the bar's Web site, as is an amusing virtual tour of the new location, set for 4121 Manchester. The bartenders are friendly, and the cast of regulars live up to Novak's' self-styled "Cheers for queers" image. With the closing of the dance-oriented Attitudes, Novak's is virtually the only openly lesbian bar in town, but it's a worthy standard-bearer.
