Lakeside Lounge - Closed

162 Ave. B New York, NY 10009 | East Village | 212-529-8463

Location Description:

Factors that inspire nonstop toplessness in the old-fashioned, black-and-white photo booth at the Lakeside Lounge: two-for-one happy hour, gorgeous bartenders (including one lass infamously dubbed "the Jayne Mansfield of Avenue B"), a sensually stocked jukebox of Sam Cooke and the Stooges, low lighting, and large single-stall bathrooms for debauchery.
