    After remodel, the toilets are still a travesty of modern sanitation, only less so. If you're a female, just pee in the gutter, you'll feel cleaner.

    Awesome venue, but the bathroom is terrifying. Unisex, small, dirty and crowded. Make sure you're ok to tear yourself away from the music and have some awkward encounters before you venture in.

    Now that 285 next door is also booking indie bands, some say this venue has mellowed a bit. We say the more, the merrier. Definitely worth going out of your way for. Loud music/Cheap beers/friendly
