    No better place to dance to the best DJs that come through Boston. Fri nights are EDM and awesome!

    The crowd usually sucks, especially if you go on a weekend. It's alright for concerts, but the slightly increased floor right in front of the stage is obnoxious

    Good music, shitty front staff. They coat check but wont let hats into the building even if you plan to check it with your coat. You're forced to leave it outside by the door & hope no one steals it.

    expect lines for any show. They search and it takes way too much time. Staff generally rude. Drinks outrageously priced. Decent venue to see bands but with all the negatives I'm always hesitant to go.
