Mehanata, better known as the Bulgarian Bar, is a popular night spot (and restaurant) in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City. The address is 113 Ludlow Street, between Stanton and Rivington. After several years on Broadway and Canal, it relocated to its current address in 2006, due to [ expansion plans by Ramada Inn] .

The establishment is much more than just another Lower East Side watering hole; it is a cultural Mecca for Eastern European expatriates in New York City and promoter of Roma culture. Although the owner is Bulgarian, hence the name, club regulars hail from all across Eastern Europe, from Albania to Latvia and everywhere in between. The music distinguishes the club from most other venues, dominated by pan-European techno and other world music dance tunes, from the DJ stylings of [ Joro Boro] and gypsy punk superstar Eugene Hutz. A defining characteristic of the old venue, weird films projected over the throning dance floor by avant-garde film maker Nick Zedd, is so far sorely lacking from the new location.
