The funky Pyramid Club in the East Village is where the art of drag was defined and refined in the 1980s by legendary drag queens like RuPaul and Lady Bunny. Often called "a caldron of talent," it also hosted the first New York performances of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana. Pyramid is as funky as ever with live bands, 80s dance parties (Thursday - Saturday) , special events (Tuesday, Wednesday, Sunday), but you'll have to catch RuPaul on TV. DJs also play Electronic Body Music (EBM), Industrial, New Beat, Synth and Electro. Drink specials, $6 cover and cash-only bar (but there's an ATM).
