    Don't let the name fool you, it is fun. The music was just a little too clubby at times.

    Way too cheesy music. Over-commercial for my taste. Don't go in if you are familiar with EU techno.

    If your squad is comprised of not hideous females, expect the Australian/Brit (heritage ambiguous) to pull you to the front of the ridiculously long line. Happy "No Fun"-ing!

    Back room of No Fun was amazing! Dj was great! He plays every song less than 2 mins & party never gets slower there! Actually summary of No Fun: White people who enjoy with the music of black people.

    Bouncers pretend they are landing airplanes by flashing lights in your face and giving you directions to move. We are supposed to know you're there... Not constantly be harassed by you.

    The irony is this place can be a lot of fun depending on the party. The front bar area can get a little claustrophobic on busy nights but the bartenders are usually on point. Authentic LES sh*t.

    Thought the bar tenders were awesome, they worked with us to make my bro's bday amazing. And the DJ was sick. Started with good house but switched over to an awesome new school/old school mix at 12

    The tuna sliders were the clear victors from the menu of apps and pastas. It's a shame about the gelato, it was clear to me that it melted, re-froze and crystallized. Grainy, not creamy.
