    Watch out for the random steps in the back if you're at a reserved table. Especially if you're in heels and intoxicated.

    Venue is actually 2 separate clubs in one building. The Bowery Electric is downstairs, and The Browery Electric is upstairs. If you're from NYU, don't ever go downstairs. EVER.

    Don't use the coat check! I checked my coat with my cell phone in the pocket & the attendant gave it to someone else without a claim ticket! And the Bowery did nothing to help! Very irresponsible!
