CHANGE THE DJ OR THE CD – THE DRINKS ARE WAY TOO EXPENSIVE, BUT THE BAR ITSELF IS NICE. THE MUSIC GETS TIRED WEEK AFTER WEEK. AFTER 2-3 MONTHS OF GOING THERE I GOT BORED AND STOP GOING OUT PERIOD. ITS A GREAT PLACE TO MEET PEOPLE AND MINGLE BUT I THINK THEY NEED TO PLAY MORE RECENT MUSIC AND MAYBE LOWER THE PRICES ON THEIR DRINKS. I PAID $7.00 FOR A HEINEKEN AND THEN I HAVE TO TIP?
A real place – THANK YOU for Victoria Lace!!!!!!! such a happy place. Handbag house, Salsa, Merenge and way too much hip hop........... but just when you get bored with MTV Hip hop club remixes made for MTV white hip hop TRL Fans a Legendary show begins and if you are lucky ..... Victoria Lace or The "Lady" Bunny will perform and remind you that Paris has burnt out and NYC is burning........ if Harmonica Sunbeam was nice out of drag I would say dont just stand there and just hollar......... instead I will say shake Victoria Lace's hand and give that classy entertainer some of your time. Escuelita is a wonderful place to enjoy yourself if you are willing to leave your hang ups at coat check. Visit this place before it's gone nothing this unique lasts forever.
Not as latin as they say – I visited Escuelita with the real hope of finding a club in which a gay couple could dance salsa and meringue till they dropped. Didnt happen!! They charged us $15 each to enter, played techno most of the night, dropped in a great Latin set for about 30 minutes and charged $14 dollars for a beer and a coke! At 1am they started an interminable drag-show designed to extract dollar bills from a mesmerised crowd that unbelievably sat on the filthy floor like kids for the duration. After the show they just played more techno so we quit and went home at 3am. Their street security was officious too which didnt help at all. Id say this is a normal gay club playing a little Latin music and a slick, long drag show. If that combination works for you, try it out. I found it to be an expensive let-down.
