Tue-Sun, 10pm-4am; Mon, closed
E, F, G, R, V at Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Ave.; 7 at 69th St.
Steps from the 69th St./Roosevelt Ave. subway entrance and across from a huge evangelical church, this gay club caters to a mostly Latin clientele encompassing young guayabera- and Western-shirt-clad men, middle-aged gringos on the prowl, settled-down couples eager to salsa, and immaculately groomed twentysomethings resembling misplaced East Villagers. Surrounded by mirrored walls, the dance floor takes pride of place under the elevated D.J. booth in back; salsa, merengue, and cumbia segue into raucous reggaeton, dance-hall reggae, and hip-hop as the night wears on (and the shirts come off). Those who arenï¿½t moved to dance can perch at a neon-lit bar under a cabana hutch then watch the spinning lights and smoke machines at a distance. Weekly late-night drag shows make Lucho's a destination spot, especially for Mirkala Crystal's biweekly Star Search on Sundays.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
