Ah yes, I remember it now. Under the El tracks. I met a girl named Elaine V. there and dated her for a while. I wonder whatever happened to her? Great club, but probably bears some responsibility for less that perfect hearing in my old age, lol.

Queens Blvd.

If you remember, up the next street was a club called The Escape. I used to play there with my band back in the 60's. It was a blood bath, fights every night.

Re: HONKA MoNKA CLUB

The Honka Monka was for a time the hottest club in New York City.
Many attendees were literally fixtures there..............two in particular were known as the Sicilian twosome, brother and sister Tommy,and Marie Sgandurra.  Hailing from Burnett Street in the Marine Park section of Brooklyn, they were the Derrick and Julianne Hough of their time.  A  Latina tinged club,it was the hottest of the hot.
