Large crowd, 2 bartenders; one upstairs, one downstairs. Very busy, bad service, plus $10 cover change. There were more door people working than bartenders.

I like this bar for its urban feel. Mixed-races and everybody having a good time. Gay or course but very straight-friendly. Fair number of college types, and B-boys. Often the music is soulful, pop Divas, or top 40 etc. Fri and Sat night there's usually...More
