Motor City Bar - Closed

127 Ludlow St. New York, NY 10002 | Lower East Side | 212-358-1595

Location Description:

Motor City's windows are concealed by red drapes, but what lies behind them is revealed every five minutes. In these intervals, like clockwork, a go-go dancer pushes them aside and wiggles her dollar-bill-stuffed bikini bottom, summoning you like a siren. Here in this NASCAR-friendly den of sin, rockabilly tunes and hot-rod decorations (salvaged "Detroit" signs, race-car seats, etc.) prevail. And though the sexed-up pit-stop look seems decidedly male-centric, there are nonetheless an equal number of ladies milling around. Perhaps Socrates was right: "Chicks dig fast cars."
