Elvis sighting in NYC at the Trailer Park Lounge & Grill!

Git your best white trash tank top on, marry your cousin, and mosey on over into this shrine to tackiness! Yee-haw!

l (4)I seriously laugh every time I think of this bar, and smile every time I am in it. On a scale of one to ten the kitch content is turned up to 100! There is so much attention to detail you can find something different every time you walk in. Velvet Elvis paintings, manniquins, posters, old beer signs, vintage tv’s, retro cigarette machines, old magazine covers on the walls, and it goes on and on. Best part is to grab a lawn chair seat in front of the old RV they have parked in here and sip from a PBR or Miller High Life – the champagne of beers – and soak it all in. You can’t make this stuff up.

Yes, there is a menu of food here. Think backyard BBQ style. Burgers here have that real charcoal grilled taste, and the sweet potato fries have a nice cinnamon flavoring to them. Tater tots too! Ice cold cans of PBR, Schaeffer, and Rheingold all add to the trashiness of it all. Plus, they have a few different margarita pitchers on the menu, but they can get really pricey. Stick to the beers. Happy hour from 4-7 with $3 beers! They even sell Moon Pies here! Gluttony rejoice!

Yes, on occassion there is even a real life Elvis sighting in this joint. A few times in the past when I have stumbled into the Trailer Park they had an Elvis impersonator belting out “The King’s” tunes in all his cheesy glory! I really need to get me a rhinestone outfit and cape!

If you are looking for somewhere different to hang out in NYC and like all things kitschy this is a great choice. I love cheesy bars and the cheeziness here is off the hook. It’s so ridiculous that I love it. Worth a visit if in the area as it’s a non-pretentious spot to grab some lowbrow grub and a cold brew just like uncle pappy used to do before he was put away for moonshining.

  1. This place sounds like so much fun. Like a home town neighborhood bar. If I lived in NYC you’d run into me in a place like this a time or two for sure.

    1. Hey Jennifer!

      Thanks for dropping by my blog!

      This place is fun if looking for a spot to grab a beer or two. As for Little Italy most of us New Yorkers kind of avoid it as it’s really for tourists but there are a few decent spots. Pellegrino’s, Benito One, Il Palazzo, Angelo of Mulberry Street are a few. For dessert there is the iconic Ferrara’s which is a bit overrated to me but always a good choice.

  2. YAY for once I can actually say we also have a bar like that in Dallas! Its called the DoubleWide and it has the same cheesy atmosphere. It has old toilets on the patio for seating and velvet pictures everywhere. Its so fun and yummy drinks.

    1. Hey Holli!

      OK – now I must have a beer there! Sounds like my kind of place!

      Wonder is anyone has ever tried to actually use those toilets?

  3. Wow, that place is full of character and colour. I love the idea that they have Elvis in every now and then.

    BTW what is moon pie? I haven’t heard of it.

    1. Hey Guy!

      It’s so goofy it’s way to much fun. Elvis has left the building!

      A moon pie is a dessert – two round chocolate covered graham cracker cookies with marshmallow filling in the middle.

  4. This place sounds all kinds of awesome, I definitely need to bookmark this place for my next trip to the city! 🙂

  5. Funny, I was in NY for a Duran Duran show and met up with about 16 or so Durannie friends at the Trailer Park. Good food and good fun was had by all!
