This is the best place to be on a Saturday night. The crowd is great, theres a nice variety of 21 to 30 somethings. The girls are probably some of the hottest I've seen in Manhattan bars and I've gone to quite a few. The bartenders are great as well. Drinks are always good and their not cheap with the liquor like some of the places I've been to. Also, most of the bartenders are unbelieveably hot! The food is great, with a variety of fries, wings etc. However. the thing I love the most is the music. Everytime I've gone the DJ has been amazing, playing a variety of hip-hop, r&b, old school 80's and 90's mixed in as well. Not like the typical techno you hear in most places. I would definately recommend this bar!

This bar is the best time in the Upper East Side...The Friday night special is actually from 7-10 and you get $1 drafts and mixed drinks..the bartenders there are so fun, and my friends and I always have an amazing time!! I love it!

  • 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.
