Julius' Bar in Greenwich Village Added to National Registry of Historic Places 5 Decades After "Sip-In"

Exactly 50 years after the historic Sip-In at the small gay bar in Greenwich Village, Julius’ has been added to the National Registry of Historic Places for its part in the fight for LGBT rights.

April 20, 2016: Our nomination of Julius’ to the National Register of Historic Places was approved one day before the 50th anniversary of the sip-in! We are thrilled that after months of research our report is now available on the National Park Service website. The bar is now the eighth site in the country listed on the National Register for its significance to LGBT history.

Check out the NPS page for more info and history on the pioneering gay bar.
