That may have been the last bikini bar in Manhattan.


I think there's still the Nassau.

I think the Deli is still there, but I don't think the back room is.

Yes, the Nassau still seems to be there. I know there are some in The Bronx. Used to be a number of them on Eighth Avenue.

Looks like my visit to Bill's Gay Nineties (before Monkey Bar) last week was timely. May be closing for good according to Lost City.

Years ago I worked across the street, and Fridays often meant chicken wings and Long Island iced teas in the bar. (Not necessarily my choice, but one goes with the flow occasionally.)

Lakeside Lounge on Avenue B set to close April 30. Much bewailed by the jeremiahs at EV Grieve, but I hadn't noticed that anyone goes there any more.

Did see some lively performances there, er, ten years ago.

I still go there, although not as often as I used to. A terrible loss.
One of the best place to see really bad bands.

Just take those old records off the shelf.

A good place not to quite see bands, thanks to the L-shaped room.

No way! Been to Lakeside two-three times in the past couple years. Drinks were cheap, usually pretty busy on Thursday-Saturday, and made for a good meet-up place before dinner in the area.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

It was my local when I lived in the EV, and a neat place to hang out. I am sad to see it go. It has been there forever.

Meanwhile, a survivor - Doc Holliday's - celebrates 18 years with 1994 prices. Which only goes to show how grossly over-priced Corona has always been.

With the closing of Timboo's comes news that it will be replaced by Skylark, from the owners of Abilene.

Abilene may not have Timboo's eccentric charm, but it's certainly grimy and drunken enough to spawn a suitable substitute.

The Court St. branch of Abilene is pleasant enough, especially in the summer when they open the windows to the street. At least Timboo's isn't being replaced with a wine bar that sells small plates. A branch of Terroir is already scheduled to replace Great Lakes, my favorite dive bar.
