Interestingly, this news was first delivered yesterday via Twitter @ArmenianNews:
“Armenia's first Gay Bar, "Cocoon" - opens in central Yerevan with large crowd.”
I am so not regretting for joining Twitter. Thanks to Onnik for inspiring me to do so :)
Strictly said, this was rather a re-launch than a launch, as it replaced a former techno bar with the same name Cocoon.
Also, Cocoon is not the first gay bar in Armenia. The very first gay bar in Yerevan (and Armenia) was Meline’s.
As far as I understand, it would be more correct to call it a gay friendly bar, rather than a gay bar. In any case, good news for sure. I’ve been told that ambience at Cocoon is cool, and people have good time there. (Cocoon is on Tumanyan street)
Time to update my Armenia Gay Guide. I know, I promised to do it quite some time ago, but could not find time, sorry for that. Now I have even more reasons to do so. Will do it asap.
