NOT a dance party

  • No, I would not go back!

I went here last night expecting to dance and was sadly disappointed. The DJ had NO dance music on his computer. No hip hop, no R&B, no 80's, no pop, no nothing. What he did have was a bevy of lame excuses such as "it's my first night", and "its early". I even called ahead of time and asked what kind of music they would be playing and the bartender told me "fun dance music and old school hip hop". Not the case. The drinks were good, the staff was nice (except the DJ), and the crowd was eh. If you want to dance go elsewhere.

Lots of Fun, great/diverse scene

What a time some friends and I had here. After a night of BK bar-hopping, this was definitely the apex of it all. The DJ kept the dancing alive, the dancers itself were from all over and covered all the young demographics (well at least the hip ones). The service would good, the fusbol was better, and that Bramble drink is delicious and worth trying.

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.
