The Monster *

A West Village institution
Walk in at street level to the bar/piano lounge piano bar which looks like it hasn't changed in 30 years. But don't let the decor discourage you, pull up a stool and the friendly crowd and fun singers will have you hooked. For a change of pace, work your way downstairs to find drag shows and a dance floor.

    Sunday Time Travel
    Sunday afternoon happy hour at The Monster is like traveling back in time. Terrific DJs such as Lady Bunny play a variety of '70s dance favorites and it's a blast to just sip a cocktail and watch men of a certain age take over the dance floor and relive their glory days at Studio 54.
