David Barton Gym| David Barton Gym Closed

David Barton in 1991, he opened his first eponymous gym in Chelsea, then New York’s emerging gayborhood.

There was house music from the DJ booth, sexy guys looking in the mirror, and a frisky steam room—pretty much everything a gay New Yorker would want on a night out. The fact that there was state-of-the-art equipment and top trainers was nice, too, of course.

Those who went to gyme would watch nightlife icons like Amanda LePore or Suzanne Bartsch (Barton’s ex) working out at the next machine. You half-expected a velvet rope to get into the locker room.

everything has an end in New York, anyway—and it looks like David Barton Gyms has stoped operating. Customers coming to the location in Astor Place posted pictures of a sign indicating all locations in New York, Miami, Chicago, Boston and Seattle had “ceased operations due to competitive market conditions.”

far off the note, the company has not made any formal announcement or responded to a request for comment.

Barton most recent outpost, on Sixth Avenue, was also the one that most hearkened back to its gym-as-nightlife ethos: It was previously home to New York’s legendary Limelight.
