I've decided to give this place 2 stars, but perhaps I could upgrade it to 3 stars someday. First off, the club is hard to get into without bottle service or a group of girls with you. Luckily, we were getting bottle service but I heard the bouncer say to a group of guys that they were only doing bottle services for now. If you manage to get in, the place is just okay. My biggest complaint is on the layout of the club. The entire club is just one big square room, nothing too interesting. It has a small upstairs, but it's mostly just more for private seating, not really a place to hang at. Due to the moderate size of the club, it's really hard to carry out a conversation, yet alone bust a move on the hot girl in the corner, because the sound system is too powerful for the room. It's LOUD inside. There's no good intermediate spots to just chill at, either. It's just the dance floor and private seating areas, and as you can imagine it gets very crowded. If you don't get a table, you're pretty much just standing along the perimeter of the dance floor. The music was fine, but didn't knock my sox off. They didn't play much hiphop, which is fine with me since I'm from LA. Oh yeah, did I mention there were a lot of guys there? The 2 tables next to us consisted of a total of 8 guys and 1 girl, haha. I'd say it was about 65%-70% dudes. Is it that New York girls are too smart to go out clubbing?

Best caipirinha that I've ever had! Granted, I've never been to Brazil, but the cachaça they used was indeed top notch. I ordered the Afro Caipirinha, which included (my choice) of fresh tamarind juice in addition to the standard ingredients - the sticky, unique sweetness of tamarind really complements the flavour profile of the drink. The bartender was quite friendly, and they had some excellent music in the background. My girl got the hibiscus margarita (@ $5)- also quite excellent, but I am glad I had my choice. I will definitely return for their happy hour - goes from 5:30-7:30, with $2.50 house cocktails!
