This place has an incredible identity crisis. It LOOKS like a dive bar, its drinks are PRICED like a dive bar ($5 dollar yummy mango margarita thingies... mmmmmmm) and it SMELLS like a dive bar... but this ain't no dive bar ladies and gents. You'll meet all sorts of folks in here. From every race religion creed and varying level of hipster-dom all the way to jocks and frat boys. Everyone seems to come in peace though and they are all there to drink and DANCE. This is why I write off the dive bar categorization of this place: Its a dance club. They play dancey music with a DJ at the back ( a mediocre DJ at that... but you know... whatever... I was crunkish enough to dee ay enn cee eee).

Minimalistic, whitewashed ambiance. Solid service. Just show up on time as the desk staff can be amusingly arrogant (though begrudgingly accommodating) about punctuality. If you are going to try sushi for the first time in your life, this is the place. If you go with friends who really do hate sushi, then add in the chicken lettuce wraps and potstickers. For dessert, the Fluffernutter Spring Rolls are wrong in so many ways; and I order them every time.

Shamefully gaudy furnishings, attempting classy but fails. There's one main dancefloor with a nice overlooking balcony, topped with high ceilings and a maze of little chill rooms. Notably enthusiastic elevated go-go dancers. Music was common dancehall reggae and top 40 hip-hop and the crowd came to dance and leer. Unless you want to be slimed, slapped for looking at someone's man accidentally, and extorted for alky unjustifiably you might want to stay away. I should also say that I came in here by accident looking for a friend's party. There is no way in hell I would have paid the asked for $20 otherwise. The door chick was awesome though when we told her we were in the wrong place she gave us our loot back. Thus two and not one star.
