    There are 2 floors each with different music. The 2nd floor is much cooler and less crowded. Lots of drugs... if you're naive or innocent you may need to go elsewhere.

    Fun, but don't expect to find someone to dance with if you're a queer girl. When I went to crowd was 100% gay guys and straight girls.

  • Rae @.

    I don't even know how they get away with selling shots this cheap (2 for $5!), but the dance floor was packed. Gay, Straight, Bi, and confused are welcome to dance the night away.

    Best DJs in the city. Two floors, secret third floor on some nights.

    Great music, good drinks, be careful on all the stairs ....

    Daniel L · September 18, 2011
  • Matt M.

    The Ritz is a great place to come late at night when everyone is nice and drunk. Just be aware that guys tend to get a bit aggressive towards the wee hours of the night on the dance floor.

    Matt McDonald · September 16, 2011
  • Jerome J.

    Nice place to get lessons on how not to dance

    Jerome Jones · August 30, 2011
  • Manhunt

    One of the latest Happy Hours in the city ('til 9 PM). There's also a smallish outdoor area behind the dance floor area to cool off and get some evening air. PACKED on Friday and Saturday nights.

  • OutSpokenNYC

    Let's be real it's not the classiest of establishments, but when you want to go out and just dance with your friends, there's really no place better. It's all about the crew you bring here.

  • Matthew D.

    Generally I don't remember what goes on when I'm here. Great spot to get wasty-face. Read more
