Monster Bar NYC
Monster Bar — a maverick proudly gayly serving the community since 1970. Since 1981, this Manhattan LGBT venue has been a pioneer on the scene with loads of adventures through its rich years of history.
The Nightclub named after a carved wooden sea serpent from a Coney Island carousel became a bona fide hit from the get go. With its fine-dining experience & classic Disco it became legendary hosting many celecrities from the political & film world. In the past 3 decades there have been 3 awesome locations. The most famous location premiered in ’71 as the flagship or original Fire Island Monster.
Although they no longer serve dinners, they continue with finger food, monstersized drinks, great music & good dialogue. No surprise that celebrities continue to enjoy our hospitality. Their film location credits include: Tom Cruise’s Vanilly Sky & Lindsay Lohan’s On Top It.
The Monster has 2 floors of fun, each with it’s own full bar: the street level opens early and offers a piano where you can sing or just listen; or sit a spell on a stool at our 360 bar. The nightly basement disco features the hardwood dance floor with a dance-up bar, and the lights and sound to flash and blast your troubles away. They offer the strongest drinks around (check out the user posted pics of shots) where if you think they are weak, you’ve obviously had too many. Drag performers frequent whether for a venue hosted weekly event, or if blown in by a fabulous wind. Go Go Hotties can be found nightly.
