Mehanata Bulgarian Bar

Map & Directions 113 Ludlow St.
New York, NY 10002


Village Voice's Description

Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Mehanata replicates the drunken fervor that one experiences at a concert starring Gypsy-punk mustache gods Gogol Bordello. The bar embraces its Bulgarian heritage by serving rakia, a throat-stinging vodka-equivalent, as well as platters of hummus and kebapche. The real draw, however, is Mehanata's events, such as the self-explanatory "Trans-global Gypsy Punk Dance Party" and "Gypsy Punk Rock Meltdown." Downstairs, you'll find the Ice Cage, a "Siberian paradise" wherein one dons a Russian military outfit and downs shots. Advice from the website: "What happens if I get sick?" "Don't."

    After you get your fill of gypsy punk, end the night by grabbing a crepe to go at the Creperie (135 Ludlow). - Jim Shearer, Top 20 Countdown

  • AskMen on 05/21/10

    With brass bands, electro-gypsy music, an “ice cage” freezer room, and plenty of good-looking patrons, Mehanata is to tame evenings what nuclear proliferation is to world peace.

    Let's explain the "Ice Cage": For $20, you're thrown into a frozen glass room full of open vodka bottles in a Soviet soldier uniform. Frozen shot glass in hand, you get 2 minutes, all you can drink.

    Super fun! Be sure to take a trip to the toilet and check out the sink! Seriously.
