Its exterior smacks of carnival kitsch, but once inside, the vibe is that of a party thrown in a squatter building by a demented host who has made it a point to cultivate only social misfits as friends. Except for the trippy local art that lines the walls, everything inside this warehouse space (white brick walls, concrete floors, exposed pipes on the ceiling) looks like it was dragged out of the trash, from the ping pong table to the theater seats to the church pews to, in some cases, the partiers, who tend to be teenagers sporting faded punk rock T-shirts but also include jaded old-timers and Williamsburg 20-somethings looking for a freak show. At the hexagonal island bar, a dj spins new wave and techno while industrial fans blow everyone's napkins away. Vinyl U-booths add an unexpected touch of class, but don’t expect a VIP roomójust a bizarre "bubble room" sloppily made out of plastic sheeting.
