I'm new to town and in the music industry so I'm always looking for new sounds. I had some friends give me the heads up about places that actually have decent bands. Arelene's is hands down the best I have seen so far. The neighborhood rocks, the scene is very lower east side, and you can usually rely on hearing some good music. This one band, THE DEFOG played and blew me away, I can't say enough good thins about them. Its nice to know that someone is still making original music that isn't just a creed rip-off. They had such an interesting sound, mellow at times and more catchy at others, and they had amazing instruments. I listen to their CD in my car constantly. I definetley will be back to find more new music. YOU ROCK DEFOG!

Highly recommended! Bar Staff is amazing, Order a PBR and a shot of Jack!! 6 Bucks! cant beat that. Great place to get wasted with great people. Weeknights are usually pretty dead but it's the best time to go.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
