About

Proudly & Gayly serving the LGBTQ community since 1970! The Monster retains a nostalgic atmosphere here in the heart of historic Greenwich Village, something often missing from the newest trendy spots.

The Nightclub named after a carved wooden sea serpent from a Coney Island carousel became a bona fide hit from the get go. With its fine-dining experience & classic Disco it became legendary hosting many celecrities from the political & film world. In the past 3 decades there have been 3 awesome locations.

​Although we no longer serve dinners, we continue with finger food, monstersized drinks, great music & good dialogue. Our Monday Sabor Latino show is extremely popular replete with Salsa & Merengue music!

The venue hosts bridal showers, wedding & anniversary parties & remains a rollicking, fun, equal-opportunity spot where anyone who's anyone can enjoy themselves.
