You definitely feel like you're in the Cibao here. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the food is on the pricey side and I have had better Dominican food for those kind of prices. Not too say that the food isn't good because its better than most of the restaurants in Corona. You won't be disappointed. My favorite thing about this restaurant is the live Perico Ripiao band every Friday and Sunday nights.

Pretty fun, A great deal if you haven't been here before. If you don't have the opportunity to come to the Academy of Sciences during the day , this is your ticket. As this is a 21 and over event, it is nice to explore the museum without tons kids running around. "Nightlife" allows your own inner child to come out and run amok in the Academy of sciences, while indulging in libation or two. Drinks are 7 bucks, parking is about 10. It's a good idea to get into the Planetarium and Rainforest's exhibits early as the line ends up growing quickly for both. As far as the crowd, I figure it's mostly 20's and 30's and a few older folks. All in all it's a bit of an older crowd that I'm used to, but it was a good time for sure. I definitely recommend getting tickets on-line before the event. One look at the line will explain everything.

The interior is quite nice! I have been here once on a Friday and twice on Saturdays. the Saturday crowd seems much more pedestrian. Decor is very much like how Home looked in New York when it opened three or so years ago. Layout of bottle service is not as concussive as I might like though. Warning, a few of the bar staff have pretty big attitudes. I once ordered a gin and tonic expecting a decent well, only to find that they poor real cheap wells. Any place of a higher pedigree I I expect to pour at the very worst Absolute. I gave some commentary and was quickly rebuked by the bar maid. Mixed drinks here are also not overly strong. I prefer Halo for mixed drinks. The crowd is stylish though compared to most places in Atlanta. I can not give this place a true 4 or 5 star lounge rating simply because it charges a cover and seems to let most riff raff in. The good thing is that while there is a like 30 deep for Cosmo Lava down there street, most riff raff do not know about Door 44, and therefore you are sheltered from the "Bridge and Tunnel" crowd that plagues places like Cosmo and Opera. See for yourself, it is worth checking out!
