Lime Green Gypsy Punks

The proceedings of February 25th were enough to thaw us out from the blizzard, and somehow also quite full of citrus flavor…

See you next week!

Major Lazer – Hold The Line (Frikstailers Remix)

In case you were wondering what summer looks like at [Burdel Dali Presents]…

Amazing party last night – the blizzard couldn’t keep us down! Photos on the way.

God Bless the French

Les Touffes Krétiennes! Self proclaimed “happily crazy and impertinently groovy” brass band from France took up half the room when they took the stage last weekend. They gave us CDs, hats, and after-hours life advice. But mostly it was their live set that blew us away. Visit them online.

Gypsy Punk Dance Party & Recent Live Music…

Thursday night, get ready…

[Burdel Dali Presents] Gypsy Punk Dance Party!

A dance party worth getting passionate about… Come shake it like Polaroid evidence of unspeakable scandal for Russian festive anthems, Yugoslavian classics, funeral marches, and the crazed music of your favorite burdel ringleaders. We’re toasting to DJ Mishto’s 10 years in the states, so be sure to catch him hovering near the bar and make him buy YOU a shot of rakia. Opa!!

Dance tunes and world anthems by the infamous Raphlex & Mishto, hosted by Michelle Christina of Tchaikovsky Darling. Live performance by Avram Pengas before we get crazy.

FREE ADMISSION on our list – $10 otherwise.




And some photos from the amazing bands we’ve had entertaining us at Mehanata recently… starting with BAD BUKA – they’ll be gracing the stage again March 6th.

Next, Where’s Ilva?, who we met through our friend (wouldn’t you know it) Ilva. We swear the vocalist has a face – and a dashing one at that. But the ice cage lighting didn’t do our photos any favors.

★ ☆ Mardi Gras ★ ☆

The carnival party was a ridiculous success – we’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Tons of photos at our facebook page – check out the Mardi Gras Album and the Mardi Gras Photobooth Album… ★

TONIGHT! 2010 Winter Olympics Party!

It’s been a week of unspeakable chaos for the Burdel Dali Militia, which is why only now, at 5:37AM, are we letting you know about our Winter Olympics party happening tonight. Alas!

[Burdel Dali Presents] Winter Olympics Party – TONIGHT

Join your local patriots and international citizens at the most multi-cultural world music venue in the LES. Burdel Dali Presents is honoring the 2010 Winter Olympics with a night of music, dancing, and general frivolity.

If you have any energy left after Tuesday’s Mardi Gras party, wear your stripes or something fresh & white, and come out to deplete the rest of it!

Dance tunes and world anthems by the infamous Raphlex & Mishto (two nationalists if ever we knew some), hosted by Michelle Christina of Tchaikovsky Darling, and endorsed by the Mehanata Wives Club. Live performance by Avram Pengas before we get crazy.


FREE ADMISSION on our list – $10 otherwise.




Burdel Valentine ♥

Photos from our amorous eve of this and that – decor, crazy women, and all the things we promised.

Don’t forget about our Mardi Gras carnival tomorrow night – rsvp to !

Propaganda & Mardi Gras~!

This party is going to be totally bananas. You’d be foolish to miss it.

[Burdel Dali Presents] Mardi Gras Carnival Party! ★

Next week the Burdel Dali Militia will dust off our dancing shoes two days early to celebrate Fat Tuesday in a fit of debauchery and excess. Come out, have a shot of rakia, and ring in the festival season like the sinner you are!

We’ll have drink specials, pretty girls in sequins & beads, dancing, screaming, and hookah chain-smoking. Festival tunes by Raphlex & Mishto. Join us in costume and leave your dignity at home. COSTUMES STRONGLY ENCOURAGED!

Tuesday, February 16th at 9:00PM.

This event is brought to you by Rachel Martinez and Mehanata Bulgarian Bar.





And finally, a few photos from our Propaganda party last Thursday, c/o nightlifebaby.

Thanks for coming out!
