Mehanata on Ludlow Has a Gypsy Party Bus

Posted on: October 20th, 2011 at 6:18 am by

Popular Lower East Side haunt Bulgarian Bar (aka Mehanata) apparently operates a tricked-out trolley it calls the Gypsy Party Bus. During last night’s deluge, the “Balkan party on wheels” was parked outside 113 Ludlow Street for some routine maintenance and cleanup.  This is the first we’ve seen of the vehicle around these parts.

The Gypsy Party Bus has a separate website dedicated to the cause.  Here’s more:

The craziest Balkan & global music party in NYC is now on wheels, packing the music and madness into a beautiful old school trolley car that will cruise Manhattan while you celebrate the night away!

Our Gypsy Party Bus is an old school trolley car that has been rescued and revived to serve the needs of Mehanata’s festive patrons, with gorgeous interior and plenty of room for your entire party.

Cruise the city FOR FREE with lights flashing, music blasting, and people dancing… and then you and your party of 28 can return to Mehanata, skip the line, and head right into the Ice Cage. The bus comes free with the booking of our special Birthday Package!

Where else have you seen the party trolley?
