    Watch out for the street bikes cruising up and down 7th ripping their pipes as you are walking out of the club. My right eardrum took the brunt of the sound pressure. Pain!

    Be aware that they NEVER have real lime before you order a Vodka Soda Lime. Lime juice isn't the same.

    Definitely go on a Saturday Sink or Swim night. Don't bring underage friends that like to drink, you will get kicked out...
