Not what it used to be

  • No, I would not go back!

This place is overrated. Staff is really rude, expensive drinks are served by bartenders with attitudes and the corporate air that has landed over this establishment now overshadows anything cool that went on there in prior years. Not a place I ever look forward to entering. Luckily, the majority of interesting acts are now choosing to play elsewhere. Time for something new.

Sadly, I concur with the above reviewer. I once enjoyed seeing shows there but the venue's aesthetic has been in steady decline for some time. The sound man was god awful at the last show I attended.

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.
