    Absolutely brilliant. Three floors. Three different scenes. Great fort a first date, bachelor party or picking up a new fling.

    You should definitely try to make a reservation for a table because this place gets packed and fast!

    Greeeeat rooftop. Really friendly staff too. Most basic (in the worst sense of the bud light word) beer selection, regrettably. It's like an InBev showroom. There is more to life than Stella Artois.

    The rooftop is a nice space to host an event

    A decent spot to see a band, but beware the $30 minimum on cards!

    Great for rooftop day drinking

  • Michael N.

    Cool setup with 3 different floors and vibes. Weird odor on the top floor is what scheved me from the get go. Bar tenders up there did not practice good service. Not cool for drinks at NYC premiums.

  • Kaitlyn P.

    the rooftop area is way better than the downstairs bar area

    Kaitlyn Pezik · May 11

    Top floor is killer

    This use to be our favorite location to go to on Fridays after work. The last floor has an open roof (on nice days) but you can't hear the music from there.

    Ehhhh dive bar with young college students. Don't confuse this place w/the DL

    Avoid this place. Plenty of better options.

    Love that rooftop bar in any weather! Lots of room to dance and chill on the main floor.

    Sara T. · December 3, 2014
  • Tom M.

    Heated rooftop type upstairs in the winter

    Tom Maxim · November 6, 2014
  • Inje Y.

    Lounge upstairs and 2 more floors of dancing, music, and bars. Nice but it's thin and can get cramped.

    Inje Yeo · October 12, 2014
  • Jenise

    Great Sunday day parties. Current Hip hop and reggae!! The rooftop is so nice. I love this party.

    Jenise · October 12, 2014
  • Jamie C.

    While it could do with a tad more lighting, the rooftop is lovely. Staff is friendly and attentive, and drinks are reasonably priced. Rooftop is covered and heated.

    Great rooftop bar, though it gets packed pretty quickly.

    Karl B · August 2, 2014
  • Jaycob B.

    Cool rooftop with lots of plants. A little cramped though, so probably best for a quieter day of the week

    This…is the Times Square of locals.

    If you are in a frat, have ever been in a frat, or like being in Times Square, then this is the bar for you. Absolute. Nightmare.

    avoid this place in general. overcrowded, $30 minimum for credit cards and overplayed avicci songs.

    $30 minimum on credit cards.... Wow.

    Kirk Miller · June 6, 2014
  • Rodrigo N.

    Don't come here! The drinks are horrible and the bartenders worst! They hate you! The security guys too.

  • Adam I.

    The drinks were expensive and the service was terrible. Only worth going if you reserve a rooftop table.

  • Karmun T.

    Overcrowded and bro'ed out. The rooftop bar looks like the inside of a hollister store.

    Karmun T. · April 21, 2013
  • Alexys B.

    The Chinese barmaid is rude and over charged us on our drinks...then demanded that we tip her afterwards. Will never gig there again....

    Alexys Becerra · April 17, 2013
  • Cristina L.

    Sooo overpriced!! NOT WORTH IT!!! And a hike from everything else

    Great for birthday parties with places to chill and places to dance to non-electronica music. Great scene and no cover
