Fun place to dance

By regineregine on 2/26/2012

  • Overall Rating: 7
  • Yes, I would go back!

Fun place to dance to top 40 hits and old throw backs - 90's style. Crowd was fun. No major hotties but we crashed a bachelor party who were generous. Full of pretty girls, some hipsters, lawyers and financial people from what I could tell but that's expected in that area. If you get there early, 11 ish no huge lines, but we did wait in the cold for 5-10 min. Bathrooms were always free even though there are only 2. When everyone is dancing there are no problems.

WORST PLACE EVER

By lychee25 on 1/12/2011

  • No, I would not go back!

don't even think twice about even dropping by this place. the above accounts are all true and then some. a close friend reserved the back room for his birthday and after one drink and leaving for a cigarette for 5 minutes, i was not allowed back in but rather was escorted out. we brought in a great crowd but everyone else throws elbows, money and aloof insecure glances. not even the trying-way-too-hard-to-be-Moroccan-themed decor is worthy of a glance and would never go back much less recommend to anyone. if the line, doormen, bartenders and clientele aren't an immediate deterrent, the money, effort waiting in line to get in, and part of your night you'll waste there will be.

Rude and $40 credit card minimum

By gusgus84 on 5/22/2010

  • No, I would not go back!

$40 credit card minimum and there isn't even an ATM in the place. When I ordered my drinks and handed the bartender my card he informed me of the minimum and I said I'm not going to get to that. He grabbed my drinks and threw them out. He didn't even tell me where I could get cash - made it really easy for me not to patronize that place.

jaw fracture is on the house

By marcosrules on 8/27/2008

  • Overall Rating: 5
  • No, I would not go back!

My friend got his jaw and cheekbone fractured coming out of this place by some coke blokes wanna be hipsters, apparently they are regulars at this joint. And were eagerly trying to pick a fight inside. When he left alone they attacked. So watch out for the anti socials here.

  • 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.
