    The place to go when you just want to drink and dance like no one is watching. Be sure to check your claustrophobia at the door.

    If you like trashy people, sticky floors, ghetto music, and shoulder-to-shoulder space... Then this is your bar.

    Always remember to tip your bartenders because they have been dealing with your drunk ass all night and it's a nice way to show your appreciation

    Great specials, fun atmosphere. The music can be hit-or-miss tho. DJs like Katy, Dolo and Konsept are on point. The others need to work on their "flow." Sorry but true.

    I think they play the best music here. The only trade off is that it is way too small

    The youngest crowd on the Halsted strip, save maybe Minibar. It definitely beats Minibar in attitude, though. People here are friendly and just want to have fun.

    This place totally violates capacity laws! Shitty dance floor and weak drinks... It's like a smaller, less classy minibar. Stay away!

    BEST bar on the strip. Just wish it was bigger! On the best nights it's so crowded. I guess that's a good problem to have though. The people are nice and non pretentious. Bartenders cool etc..
