    Weddings here are very reasonable & below NYC prices at some similar- The Foundry, The Green Bldg etc. Here it starts @low 10Ks incl. full open bar for 6 hrs (add. $700 gets🔝). Adam Aziz =the man💯✔➕

    Watch out for the rivers of water surrounding the red leather booths! Many a technological device has met its demise here.

    The bawdy hosts and performers change every week at Floating Kabarette!, a weekly cabaret show (Sat 10:30pm). The red-lit island tables on the indoor lake are the most romantic seats. Read more

    Another underlit—but beautiful—venue in NY (see Le Poisson Rouge). Great acoustics, dramatic architecture and comfortable seating. You'll get used to the strong chlorine smell after a while...

    Burlesque? More like "brolesque" because of all the guys in it. If you go to the show expecting scantly clad women be prepared for a letdown.

    Great place for performing arts. Love the look!

    Nice spot, but for the love of all that's holy, get an air conditioner or turn that bad boy on!
