    Even if you don't like rap, come here for freestyle Mondays. Especially the first Monday of the month when the best MCs in the city battle it out. It's such a fun experience!!

    Stupidest rule I have ever heard in the history of any bar/club ever. Watched a band...tried to use the only bathroom located upstairs and was told I would not be able to go back downstairs.

    I don’t like my cocktails sweet so I asked for my Dandy Wellington without sugar and loved how refreshingly light it was. I seem to gravitate towards anything made with gin and mint. Read more

    Go early for great live music (check the calendar) in a Gatsby-esque locale. Later on with DJ, crowd was very young and fratty. Great drinks and decor.

    Totally a douchebag venue including the guys at the door.

  • Jack C.

    Typical "no dudes" / "we have a dress code" bullshit from the guys out front. Won't be coming back; there are plenty of places I can go to with less hassle. Shame because it's actually a nice space.
