    If this place was better ventilated and bigger, I'd come here more often. That being said, it's a pretty awesome bar: Soviet-themed, friendly crowd, porn on the TVs, and strong drinks sum it up.

    Why not join The Party? Happy hour is late and shenanigans usually start even later. Self-proclaimed "best fucking gay bar in the universe." I wouldn't argue with Cold War era Russians, would you?

    Great bar! The music is always amazing, gorgeous go-go boys and the bartenders are hot! Make sure to get a drink from Darren!

    If you think the bartenders are rude or entitled, you're obviously a douchebag that knows nothing of common decency or bar etiquette in NYC. The bartenders here are sweet, and sexy on top of it! Go!!

    Dingy yet ecstatic dive bar with the allure of 80s Gay New York. CNN Anchor Anderson Cooper's boyfriend usually slinging drinks behind the bar.

    Definitely has a more club vibe and doesn't get started until after 1am. If you come early expect to leave soon or stay and be bored.

    Better for dancing than some nearby gay bars, but more crowded than Bedlam. And darker and more humid..

    Small and very dark Soviet themed bar packed with an ever-changing crowd, very loud music and dancers. Happy hour lasts until 10pm.

    “The venue has cool décor & a laid-back vibe, but the gay porn imagery on the walls are enough to scandalize even a hardened club veteran.” More at http://www.partyearth.com/venues/eastern-bloc.

    Stumbled into this place thinking it was a dark & dingy dive bar, but alas... It's a dark & dingy gay bar instead! There are cocks hanging from the ceiling & porn playing on two screens. Drink was $8.

    Come here if you'd like to see questionable dancers on a pole or literally, Anderson Cooper himself. Both may occur.

    Some of the bartenders here have attitudes. I don't care if you're dating Anderson Cooper, just serve drinks.

    One of the bartenders was very rude, the drinks were bad and the music was even worse. Definitely NOT recommended.
