    Your system fucking sux. You got iPads to check your shit in but still rely on cash??? Fuck your atm machines with $4 charge. You suck and I hope your business will die very soon.

    a proudly crap-assed establishment. "VIP" tickets here entail lines as long as regular ones, with a 5 min head start on entry being the only benefit. and water is SIX bucks, with no tap. hateful

    If you're here for live music, grab a beer before beelining to the front of the floor area by the stage. It will be a long walk through the crowd otherwise.

    Will probably never come back here again. Staff was extremely RUDE and unorganized--had no idea what they were doing. Sucks to suck, Hammerstein. Sad good venues close and these shit shows still run.
