    Great venue w/ grungy feel. Live music but can get really loud so you may not want to meet here on a first date. Go for the fela burger. It's a win. Wings are tiny. Don't get if you're really hungry.

  • Harlem A.

    Africans, Euros, and Americans all come for world music with dance and reggae thrown in. Since the bar is ALWAYS open until 4am, there is often a late crowd. Those albums on the ceiling are legendary!

    Great music venue playing Jazz and African/Caribbean/South American music. Very mixed crowd of people from all walks of the world. Once you're here, you're in another (chilled out) galaxy.
