best undercover-cop bar (2008)


In March 2000, an undercover cop murdered Patrick Dorismond after unsuccessfully trying to buy drugs from him at the DISTINGUISHED WAKAMBA COCKTAIL LOUNGE. Located adjacent to a Gray's Papaya and a DVD porn palace on a sullied midtown strip, the Wakamba still attracts a late-night blue-collar crowd, and we're pretty sure these fellas don't work for the phone company. Also suspicious: Despite a rather whimsical nautical interior, the Wakamba doesn't even have a listed phone number.
