    Grungy dive bar that can be fun for live music but otherwise nothing special.
  • Ryan W.
    Go listen to live music in the basement.

    Fun for going out dancing with a group. We stayed downstairs most of the time. Can get hot but they have giant fan they turn on when it starts to get toasty.

    Fat Baby is my second home, I should invest in the place at this point. Staple spot in LES, always great music. They have decent pricing and open until 3-4AM. Don't go there on Sunday

    No frills night club. Can get really crowded. If you're with a bunch of guys, this place is easy to get into. Cheap drinks.

    Great comedy club that gets lots of major acts, many on an impromptu basis. Always fun times and also has great bartenders!

    The drinks are pretty up there as far as bar prices though. They have a 3 drink minimum on cards after 10p. After 10/11p, it gets packed fast. Lower level opens after midnight.

    This bar gets really crowded around 12:30 but empties real fast. Drinks are decent/cheap/appropriate for LES. Crowd is mixed of frat boys, nerdy guys and NJ

    Screw this place. 3 drink minimum on a card. Bartender accused us of not tipping (which we did) and said she wasn't going to serve us if we didn't tip. I went here solely for a friend- never again!

    This place is a dump, avoid at all costs. The crowd is in attractive and creepy, and all the staff are rude.

    “The 2 areas have totally different schedules – as the live music ends downstairs, upstairs really gets going. Plan to stay late to check out both.” More at http://www.partyearth.com/venues/fat-baby.

    No cover. Great dancefloor spot. Lost of dancing, girls and drinking. The music can get heavy with hip hop, dance and top 20.

    Wednesday night is apparently the night they play old ministry. I recommended having at least three drinks here. 5/7.

    Try and decode the sharpie markings the bouncer draws on your hands. If you get some hearts then he has a crush on you...eww

    Just pay cash, they'll charge whatever tip they please. Or better yet, avoid it completely.

    If you never want to college, check it out to find out what a bad frat party is. Also-minimum on cards is $40, which is illegal. Downstairs is passable, upstairs blows eight dicks.
