Our first night in NYC we went to some music video premier at the Flatiron Hotel? We were supposed to make it there in time to watch the band perform live and then stay for the party. Of course we didn't make it to the performance, but got there just in time for the party! For some reason staying out till 5am is standard in NYC. After the party at the Flatiron, we headed to the lower east side to Los Feliz Taqueria. The best part about this bar was that there was a Bulgarian bar next door. My cousin wouldn't stop talking about this crazy/weird/awesome/creepy bar, so after a few drinks and an awesome conversation with a gay guy about his new tank top line for bros, we headed over to Mehanata.
I can't even begin to explain what this bar/club was about, but it was effing awesome. Its the type of place that has bras and panties hanging as decor, swings, hookah, a dj, skeletons, soviet decor and women passing out strange shots. Apparently it also has an "ice room". You pay a small fee to go downstairs to the basement where they dress you up in soviet garb and make you drink vodka till you puke. My kinda place. Too bad it was "closed" by the time we got there. Next time Mehanata....
It was the most fun I've had out in a while!
