Description

Village Voice's Description

The KGB Bar was, once upon a time, a gathering spot for Ukrainian Socialists. To this day, a Communist flag hovers over the dozens of vodka brands resting on the bar, crimson curtains block all natural light, and propaganda ornaments the room like tchotchkes at a TGI Friday's. This would all be genuinely disconcerting if it weren't for the bar's current incarnation: a literary club. Sunday nights are for fiction, Monday nights are for poetry, and author readings are usually scheduled through Thursday. They even publish a lit journal! Nonetheless, the vodka-loaded bar is still highly functional. You, after two hours in this place, less so.

    Its a nice homey little bar. Get the Baltikaa Beer, most bang for your buck.

    Try to count the urinal cakes in the bathroom...You'll be there a while.

    Hah, communist. KGB reminds me of Rounders.

  • Janice on 11/22/09

    Feels like a Communist when I'm here. Uh-oh parents wouldn't like that, would they...?

    AWFUL bar. Was completely disrespected & it was also empty so not sure why we were treated this way. The asian long haired bar tender is possibly on drugs and crazy. I will no be going back. CYA!
