I really wanted to like this place. I'm a huge carnival fan and I am in love with Coney Island and the games you find at such places. however, when My friend asked me out to her birthday party, I squealed in delight at her " Come to this carnival themed Club with me", What I found was anything but fun. FAIRNESS: Let me start by being fair to the place itself, the theme is an amazing and unique one. The decor is certainly done well and the few carnies that entertained around the floor was really something fun to look at. My favorite was the amazon looking woman in dominatrix outfit blowing up balloons on her breast and making penis shaped things for all of us (6+ people). The waitress was fantastic and always came with a smile and great drink suggestions. Here are my concerns: Entrance: They want to be a premiere nightclub... but their attitudes stink at the front door. They wouldn't let in one guy based on his "ripped" jeans. They were fashionable ripped jeans. He was black. You be the judge. Inside, there was about 1 black man for every 12 white men. Affirmative action? My friend who cam elate had to go back home to get a "collared" shirt, he was originally wearing a black shirt with Grey slacks. He's Mexican, they turned him away and let his best friend who was wearing a hoodie and loose jeans ( he's irish) come in. My friend came back with a collared shirt and was almost turned away again before some of the other people had noticed what the front door people were doing and told them to let him in. He got in after a few minutes. Cover charge was $10.00 to get into this place. With mandatory coat check. it's a 5 floor walk up and in heels, that don't work... DRINKS: It's REEEEEEEEEEDICULOUSLY overpriced. The drinks were not that great. I tried the "Dunk Tank" , Pina colada and the Margarita. The Dunk tank was good, but not very strong, is 2 gallons, 2 of which is made up of ice. It's watered down and after taking my 1/6 of it I was unimpressed. The margarita was ok, bu again very weak and at $16.00 a pop... I wasn't going to shell out for another. The Pina Colada was good but only the favor again not very strong, I had to fight to taste the alcohol, It was another disappointing $14.00. I stopped drinking after that. FOOD: The BBQ Pulled Pork mini buns were excellent, it cam with fries! Sno-Cones: Good, not that strong. PEOPLE: Good mix of people. Although one guy was insulting and weird with a few of the girls in my group. Bathrooms: CRAZY! 4 stalls and 10 girls. no toilet paper to be found, a HUGE HUGE HUGE pile of paper in the trash overflowing onto the floor. A passed out girl who had obviously drank before going here, or super rich. Games: Fun, but at $4 a game so not worth it. The terrible prizes too! Guys, if any of you are looking at this review and work there... tell them that a better prize for winning would be a second drink! or a free refill on what ever you've had. Most of the plush toys are worse than what you get at a regular carnival. The fish game... poor fish. I counted about 12 dead. The Dunk Tank was fun to watch, but my friends who are on the softball team would hit the target and the game wouldn't dunk the guy! WTF?! we stopped after the third girl didn't get the target to work. Dancing: there was no dancing till about 1:30 am. we got inside at around 11 pm but the place wasn't "packed" till 2:30. Overall: a big waste of time and money. I've had more fun at bars with a nastier exterior but beautiful people inside. I sat there literally counting the minutes before my friends (whose birthday it was) to leave. I love them, but i wouldn't go back there for them. I wasted money that could have brought me great times at a less swankier place.

I loved this place. It was one of the first places I went to when I moved here. I went with a group of girlfriends and we sat upstairs outside for dinner. We ordered a few rounds of martinis and everyone was happy. Our waiter did not disappoint us. The majority of us ordered sushi which was delish! A few more drinks and before we knew it the place was transforming into a club. The music/dj was good and we moved over to the bar and eventually to the dance floor. Good night!

this place is really cool - and you should really go at least once while living in the city. i came on a friday night for the poetry slam. It's really fun and the MC keeps things entertaining. The poets are super talented and when I went they were so young (one of the girls was 17!) - it was really a great experience. Only minus is that we had to stand the whole time b/c we got there close to starting time and my feet started hurting after the first hour. That being said - its a good spot - they serve beer and $4 wine only - but you don't come here for the alcohol, you come here for the talent...and that impresses.
