    Amazing service, amazing music, and a space made for dancing around like an idiot! (In a very good way though). Definitely recommend this place!

    Sexy dark east vill vibe .Sunday nights for me I think is the best . Plus beats are on point. No drama just chill back an enjoy the people and vibe .

    Grungy bar/club/live music venue. Sometimes a pain to get into, particularly after midnight. Really has the East Village dive style going on here.

    simmering drama, glimmering fauna, unidentifiable spirit, come, spent, viable, leer at, dank basement, stank bass, bent, raucous dance floor, noxious hands, door, sticky fingers, prickly tinglers ...

    Check out Ethan Lusterman when he performs downstairs! Truly excellent vocals and guitar.

    Good crowd during the week but a little hit-and-miss on weekends. My local for a while :-)

    This damp cave is dark to the point of nonrecognition, which works in your favor. Trust us. Read more

    Ugh. This is the place of the 30 second DJ...every song plays for 30 sec, every genre, RPM, and style mixed.

    Every time someone likes my last tip here, I get douche chills because I wrote "see" instead of "sea". Just so you all know, I'm not a moron. Thanks for your time.

    NOT dancing music and they force you to check in your bags and coats. They have security walk around and take your stuff if you leave it. Not coming here again.

    You should come here now and get real drunk and see if you can dance better than me and/or Nate.

    The long haired art fag downstairs is the worst thing that ever happened to humanity. Go back in time, kill his mother. You'll be new york's biggest hero. Spider-Man won't have anything on you.
