When I saw "what's not to love" I knew I had to respond with a short little essay on "what's not to love" about the Majestic. The layout of the place is just kind of bad. Since you have to pay at the front, if it is busy there are often people standing right in front of your table. One time, their hot-dog made me sick. It was green (and no, I wasn't drunk!). The inside looks like Johnny Rockets, but what is mostly not to love are the prices. You can get the same food, twice as much of it, and twice the service at the Landmark. That, is what's not to love. The majestic exploits it's historic identity and delivers something historically called a ripoff.

I went to Icon one night last year it wasn't too crowded which I thought was cool got kinda drunk went out side to find a guy selling bacon wrapped hotdogs!! Yes My favorite I had 3 hahaha shut up I know its a lot. Told the man right on for cooking outside and scarfed down the yummy fattening hot dogs.. Spilled a little mustard and ketchup on my shirt but overall that night I had a pretty good time. Last month me and a couple of my people were over here to celebrate my bday.( The night before I had lost my ID so all I had was an expired one keep in mind that I'm 25.) We get to the front of the line and the asshole won't let me in. Doesn't matter that it is my bday doesnt matter that I have like fuckin 15 people with me who are all ready to blow so serious loot at the bar the dumb ass still wouldn't let me in.Even when the other bouncer said i was the business and we should most definatley let me in The mothafucka still wouldn't do it.. Was he gay maybe!?.. with that being said fuck ICON haha

Can't really say much about this place because I was there for a magazine release party back in January. Music was dope, but it was a hot blues singer by the name of Acantha doing a live performance and Gilles Peterson and Nossa were on the decks, and I doubt any of them are going to be regular fixtures here anytime soon. Drinks were cheap, but it was an open bar. Crowd was cool, but that probably has more to do with the magazine than the venue, so who knows if any of those people will be back during a "regular" night. However, what I CAN say about the place is that the space is nice, although I think I'm getting a little tired of the whole nondescript-facade-in-a-crappy-looking-but-actuall y-gentrified-neighborhood-leading-to-a-surprisingl y-nice-interior schtick. It's big enough for a live performance, but small enough to feel intimate. The front is reminiscent of somebody's Victorian parlor with a bar, and the back is like an old-fashioned theater, laid out just as didi s described. As a venue, it's got a lot of potential, but it will depend on the strength of its entertainment booking to live up to it. Definitely a place to keep your eye on for the moment, though. Three stars for now, and worth revisiting later.
