    Wanna dance with your crew? Come here on a Friday or Saturday. But be prepared for lines to get into more lines if you get here a little after 11:45

    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.
