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.

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!

Gypsy Eviction, Part II.

Thanks to all who came out to our Valentines day pregame. We sold all of Mishto’s kisses to one pretty lady who now has an impressive debt to pay. A full gallery of that hot pink madness will be up this weekend.

More photos of the Gyspsy Eviction c/o Tchaikovsky Darling. The full set (over 100!) is up at our facebook page.

And check out this video from the Mehanata Haiti benefit concert, featuring a ton of cool bands and Michelle taking rakia shots with Ilva. The real deal.

Gypsy Eviction!

The commune was decked in sheer white and lights for the unceremonious eviction party that happened on the 2nd, hosted by our lovely friend Lennon and her band of misfit cohabitants. The tiny dancers dressed themselves like mystical thrift shop fiends and we all had a dose of honey on our tongues to keep things sweet.

Photos by nightlifebaby‘s camera, taken by Tchaikovsky Darling. More on the way.

Twilight Vision covers Gypsy Tabor…

Some of our favorite Mehanata regulars waxing nomadic at the Gypsy Tabor festival… Raphlex is photographing, Michelle is dancing, and Mishto is getting interviewed about Brooklyn wildlife. Watch out, it gets pretty deep. Click to watch.
