    Really tiny but the folks are super nice! Be careful if you're going to an early concert: they like to shuffle people along for the next event and hard to just chat afterwards.

    Great sweaty dance venue. Roof deck is a nice addition. Come for Peach Pit. One day the floor will cave in.

    One of my favorite dive's. cool bartenders....rooftop deck..enclosed and heated in the fall/winter. Main level jukebox...a good time.

    Get a table near the fireplace. My identical twin sister sweeps the chimney so I can guarantee you'll enjoy a great meal without the smell of silly soot.

    "Instant banter with the barman as we walked in. They have the best burgers and the smoking bar on the roof is a nice touch. Area seemed safe, but don't stray to many blocks away." -New Cassettes

    Wow, um, so the staff was Gestapo assholes all around on a Tuesday night. Other then the roof deck, this place BLOWS thanks to the disgruntled unhappy dicks working. Sorry your life sucks!

    Katie Delevati · March 21, 2012
  • Victor Z.

    Terrible weather out but still feeling like being semi-outdoors? DC9's new and improve rooftop is covered and heated. Real thermostat heaters no less, not that gas powered crap.

  • Skillshare

    We hosted a happy hour here and loved the staff and vibe! Come back for the most rock 'n' roll class you've ever been to - who says you can't analyze the history of punk while at a concert?

    The new bar menu is really delish. The stars: wedge salad, Cuban pork sandwich & the burgers. Kitchen closes at 10:30

    If u go to the bathroom from the roof deck you'll be stuck downstairs in line!
