Eastern Bloc is a small gay bar in the East Village. Despite its size, Eastern Bloc has a great reputation for its dance parties and unpretentious, kitschy feel. It’s a bit of a dive, not much flash or glamour, which will work in its favor for some, against it for others. Weekly them nights include: Blococholic on Saturdays (“Proletarians, hairdressers, prostitutes, bearded ladies of the world unite.”), Bloc Party on Fridays (“Start your weekend off drunk.”), Atomic Karaoke on Mondays and Contact on Thursdays (featuring a genre of music called “Boner Jams”). Cash only.
