    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Every song was ON POINT! Great jams, crowd, dive vibe. Shhh don't spoil the secret and ruin it!!

    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!

    $5 weekend cover but I went on a Friday and it was all 50s rock n roll (did the twist all night)

    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 ....

    Fun music for dancing and decent priced drinks for that area. Gets crowded fast, however.

    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.

    $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.

    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.

    Cool if you like to drink with underage kids who spill their drinks on you. And bartenders who stare you in your thirsty face

    Taxidermy-Oh-My! Drink until the decor become slightly bearable. Doubles. Then dance so everything becomes a blur. Fun times!

    Come with no expectations, buck up the $5 cover charge, drink among taxidermy, and boogie down with the hipsters like it's no tomorrow.

    Open bar night only, of course. And while you're at it, stay away from the park across the st. RATS everywhere.

    One of my favorite random dancey sketch bars. Not saying there is anything wrong with that.

    $20 credit card minimum, but decent drink prices for NYC: shot or tequila & shot of Jameson = $12.

    Don't come here in the summer. You'll be dripping with sweat in the first 2 minutes, and there's no way they are meeting fire code with the massive crowd

    The bouncers discriminate against gay people. I wasnt let in because the bouncers rejected a gay friend of mind entry

    If you're not a "hipster" you'll hate it! Also, there's taxidermy all over the place
