Village Voice's Description
Factors that inspire nonstop toplessness in the old-fashioned, black-and-white photo booth at the Lakeside Lounge: two-for-one happy hour, gorgeous bartenders (including one lass infamously dubbed "the Jayne Mansfield of Avenue B"), a sensually stocked jukebox of Sam Cooke and the Stooges, low lighting, and large single-stall bathrooms for debauchery.
Tips from foursquare
This place oozes retro-rock cool, largely due to is its killer 99-album-strong jukebox. Choose from ’60s stompers by Them, the Strangeloves and a host of little-known Nuggets-era garage acts.
If you’re looking for a dive bar in the east village this is the spot to go. Great juke box, cheap drinks, and a perfect place to hide out. - Whitney
Buy a $4 token at the bar and get your photobooth on! It's the real deal, not digital!
Come here on a slow night, enjoy 2-for-1 happy hour, bring some friends, and take over the place. Order pizza from Eleven B around the corner. They'll deliver right to the bar.
Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga, and a jukebox with Buddy Holly's greatest. What more can I say.
