    Amazing music! I literally never heard any of the songs before, all up-beat 50s old school. I want to pick through the DJ's collection! Wear sneakers or flats to dance...uneven concrete cellar floor.

    After much internal debate, I'm ready to say publicly this is my favorite bar in NYC. Everything about it is perfect. Divey, cozy, dancey when needed, late happy hour, great music, prices & staff.

    I love this place. Douchebag-free dance floor, young crowd, and great music -- the kind you "groove" to. Fridays is 100% oldies but Saturdays is a good mix of classics and modern.

    Awesome whatever no rules dance party go to spot. Some of the DJs need a lesson in mixing but at least they play the jams.

    the staff is awesome, the drinks are reasonably priced, and they spin old school music until late! shout out to the trio playing tag on the dance floor, but beware of very aggressive creeps!

    Next door to the gated, locked door marked 131 there is a gaping hole in the wall w/ stairs. Congrats, you've found your crazy uncle's cabin hideaway. $3 drafts/wells 'til 8, M-Sat. Cover on wkends.

    This taxidermy-decorated bar flaunts a mixed crowd (there are occasionally bankers & clubbers here), which means hipsters cling to other like-minded hipsters and make out on the stuffed mongoose. Read more

    Takes you out of new york and into the woods, i feel like i walked into a cabin in the south. Love it. Hipsters and occasional hip hop= awkard dance battles

    Music is surprisingly good. Definitely on the more divey side, although doesn't cross into grungy. Also check out the bobcat taxidermy.

    Amazinh place to dance and socialize. Wait until the bartender is done with whatever he is doing if you want to talk to him. Otherwise he will yell some bad words at your face!

    Full of knickknacks (and one arresting disembodied horse head), this underground dance club is filled with students and after-work hipsters looking to hit the dance floor and let loose.

    I love this place, but the happy hour friday bartender needs to pick better music to play that makes people want to have fun and not die!

    There's a bartender that looks identical to Silent Bob and he makes some of the best drinks in NYC. Don't trip over a stuffed eagle or fox while you dance in the back ....

    Music was very loud. Several hours later can still notice the effect on my ears. Saw some dancers with ear plugs. I would recommend the same if you're going.

    This is a great little spot. Taxidermy theme. Pretty good music and atmosphere. Dark and Moody , but the music is pretty much funk, soul and disco. They are doing something right...+not a bad crowd. Read more

    uneven dance floor makes the smiley face sad on the vent located above the couch. :| however this could just be a side effect of the heavy handed bartender's drinks.

    $25 minimum on credit cards, rum and coke will run about $6. No door on men's room stall. Absolutely deafeningly loud. Love the decor, though.
