    one of the weirdest, funniest places I've ever been. If you might enjoy being locked in an ice cage while you take shots of watered down vodka then this is the place for you!

    We dare you NOT to have a good time at this raucous den. Drink and dance the night away, but make sure you venture downstairs to the ice room to cool off with a shot or two.

    This place is WILD. There are bras hanging from the ceiling, there is a walk-in fridge in the basement, and you can sit by the bar on a swing! If in doubt, go for the cider.

    Let's explain the "Ice Cage": For $20, you're thrown into a frozen glass room full of open vodka bottles in a Soviet soldier uniform. Frozen shot glass in hand, you get 2 minutes, all you can drink.

    thursday night dancing was lively, not too packed, and not too dark. good crowd, eccentric decor.

    Great music! Diverse crowd, the place smells like beer and vomit when you go down the stairs but if you can get passed that it's a fun time.

    Go with a big group of friends. Spend some time on the upper level with shisha and live Balkan music. Then go down to experience the ice cage, forgotten music of 80s-90s and naked women statues.

    Are you still being stupid and contemplating that $10 cover? IT IS SO WORTH IT THAT YOU ARE WASTING TIME. You'll have fun. I promise. If not, I won't give you your $10 back but I might high five you.

    Great music and atmosphere. Loved the experience. Their special apple drink is good and the idea of swings as barstools was fun

    Check out both floors for a night of electro-gypsy music. Step into the "ice cage" freezer room with friends for 2 minutes of unlimited vodka, if you dare. Then dance on the pole stage downstairs.

    Great place to let loose and dance. Try the Ice Cage: dress like a Soviet soldier and drink vodka

    The Bulgarian bar below Kuma Inn features an ice cage, Bulgarian beers, and rowdy dance parties that last way after hours.

    Eastern European insanity downstairs. Step into the « all you can drink » ice cold Vodka room and then take a few spins off the stripper pole.

    It is loud, it is packed, it is absurd (yeah there's a cover). Not a place to start the night but coming here while already black out drunk to dance and end the night is a good idea.

    Came for the Balkan and Cumbia. Was thoroughly pleased. Equal parts janky and rustic, Mehanata has become my new favorite discotheque.

    After you get your fill of gypsy punk, end the night by grabbing a crepe to go at the Creperie (135 Ludlow). - Jim Shearer, Top 20 Countdown

    $20 a person gets you 2 minutes of unlimited vodka in the Ice Cage downstairs. And you have to wear the provided Soviet uniform. A must.

    With brass bands, electro-gypsy music, an “ice cage” freezer room, and plenty of good-looking patrons, Mehanata is to tame evenings what nuclear proliferation is to world peace. Read more

    Mandatory cover, mandatory coat check, bouncers are rude and the waitresses blow a whistle in your ear to make you get out of their way. Management aside, such a cool bar!!
