SYNOPSIS: DO NOT COME HERE. The bouncer attacked my friend, put him in a headlock, dragged him outside and threw him nearly across the street. At the start of my birthday party (with NO ONE drunk), a big 6' 3" bouncer weighing over 250 lbs pushed past our group - stepping on my friend's foot in the process (my friend is a skinny 5' 9", 130 lb dude). My friend yelped, and the bouncer turned around - and yelled, then pushed my friend, grabbed him by the head in a chokehold. He then lifted him off his feet by the neck, spun him around. He then dragged my friend out of the door, up the stairs and literally threw him out on the street. We called the cops and filed a complaint. Also as a side note: They charged us an additional $100 because we had juice along with our bottle.

An Excellent Holiday Party

Alibi was a great place to throw a holiday party - great atmosphere, tons of delicious food (provided by Slane Pub down the street), and a helpful and attentive staff. Glenda, the owner, made planning the party extremely easy and it was totally affordable for the quantity of food and alcohol that we consumed. I would highly recommend Alibi as a place to throw a party.

My type of place

This place is great. It has a laid back atmosphere for those who just want to chill. But for those of you who want to dance Their D.J. is right on point. Drinks are good and price range is decent. Whether you're going after work or during the weekend this is definitely a place to go check out.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
