We had one of our most fun nights out at this club. The video dj played a great mix of music which had me dancing away for a long time. more »
Place is super gay. Their drinks are good, but it is only cash. Dance floor is small, but it's fun. Crowd is friendly & is a great place to find someone to dance with!
Love. Love. Love. There's friendly coat check people, the bartenders are quick and the security staff is super friendly. Every time I go out, I almost always end up here.
