    This place was cool! DJ was good! Only downside was it's small interior. Gets very crowded on the weekends.

    Fantastic old school hip hop. Like I'm back in grade school in the 90's again. Great vibe in the LES. $5 cover but free shots with a $100 tab.

    This place is way too small and packed with students. Womp. They played random rap/hip hop on Saturday night. It's like the music we loved maybe 10-15 years ago but most of the songs...eh.

    One of the best places to be if you're into hip hop music. DJs are of quality and really understand the importance of maintaining beats and counts.

    Your claustrophobia fades (shoulder to shoulder in a space about the size of a New York apartment) once you realize the crowd is pretty amazing. Music is mainly 90s-early 2000. There is a $5 cover.

    This is exactly what you get in the LES for small size (busy nights can be overcrowded) and hip scene but the music is so on point if you like hip hop bangers, classics and Thee throwback too

    Good vibes come from this place playing old school hip hop all night. It's small and a bit crowded but it's still a blast with friends.

    Gets EXTREMELY packed and sometimes you may have to wait 30 minutes since over capacity, but definitely head over because they play reggae, hiphop aka REAL dancing music! Lol always a good time.

    I like to get here before the crowd to get my dance on, other wise I get here as a last stop for the night after I'm too drunk to care.

    A 'hot box' of a club. Saturday nite = asian invasion. Good hip hop music. One room not much bigger then my apartment. Total score = 2 stars.

    An unpretentious ”sweatbox” that plays a combo of old school & new to a crowd that gets down around midnight. Swing by earlier for a more relaxed vibe, a seat & a view of the rotating art collection. Read more
