    Case in point: the 300 lb gorilla who was smacking around a prostrate 90 pound Spanish girl whose only offense was to seek help for her friends being triple teamed by the rest of the brute squad.

    If you like underground hype places, this is the place to be. Cuba libre are excellent over here and music is incredible. Watch out for drug dealers outside

    A great spot for underground music in town. Beats are varied from heavyweight bass dub-step to nasty electric. Get ready to join the mad crowds.

    Lots of weird electronic music in a spot that is clearly trying hard to be cool, but is also succeeding at doing so. Had no problem with the doormen.

    If the bouncers tell you it's not busy, they aren't lying. Don't go in - grab a drink at apartment (a couple of doors down) and hope it will eventually fill up!

    Don't mess with the goons at the door. They'll dispense a beatdown to you without provocation.

    Find a spot under the air con vents by the bar for some much needed coolness.
