    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?

    The bartenders here are sweet and nice to look at and the drinks are reasonably priced! It smells horrible in here though,the place is way too poorly ventilated! Hot as hell in here & too crowded!

    Gayest dive bar ever. When the poles are up the night's just getting started. One at a time in the bathroom boys

    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.

    Fun dive spot, soviet

    Ian Cummins · March 15, 2014
  • Andrew C.

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

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

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

  • Amber M.

    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.

    Amber Moller · September 14, 2013
  • Bri B.

    It was hot & stuffy & the crowd was less than average looking with poor dancing skills.

    Be warned: Ass Juice Shots ($3)... You've been warned.

    Heard a rumour that Anderson Cooper's boyfriend owns this place.

    “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.

    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.

    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!!

    Marc Isenhart · October 24, 2011
  • Carlos F.

    You are in an east village bar deal..... the Bartenders are awesome and sweet just take the time to ask how their day is cause.... mid town douches don't know how to act like humans

    Carlos Fernandez · October 13, 2011
  • Eric R.

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

    Reminisce about the days this was Wonder Bar and feel old.

    Johnny Malangone · September 26, 2011

    Avoid the rude, entitled bartenders.

    Dark. Quirky. Cheap drinks. Did we mention cheap drinks?

    Start your week with Sunday Social. There are $2 champagne cocktails and $4 well drinks every Sunday from 2:30-7:00.

  • The Corcoran Group

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

    The Corcoran Group · July 9, 2011
  • Anthony G.

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

    Anthony Galante · July 6, 2011
  • Curt H.

    Check out the bar stools...leave a photo of the one that describes you.

    Curt Haase · May 16, 2011

    Party like the Russians did in this Soviet-themed gay dive bar. However, this war is a little warmer with a happy hour that last until 10 p.m. and the go-go dancers on the stripper poles. Read more
