@ Mehanata Bulgarian Bar – 113 Ludlow Street

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.”
