    Chic bar area; the dance floor tends to be packed with good music and captivating lighting.

    Interesting to me. Plenty of air to breathe. Then there are a lot of drug deals going on so. No, not safe.

    Worst layout of any club I've been to! Who's ever idea it was to put a 3 feet wide hallway as the only passageway to and from the dance floor is an idiot!

    Unfortunately one of the few after-hours clubs in Boystown. Great if you don't mind paying cover for repetitive, uninteresting, monotonous and dry dance music in a vacuous hole-like setting.

    So the asshole owner Mark is here tonight. He is walking around with a cane. Looks like someone finally gave him a piece of his own medicine.
