Perfect place for a quiet night out the kids....if the "kids" refers to your certain preteen party monsters with strong preferences for neon body paint and death-becomes-her cocktail attire. .... Sitting in my brooklyn apt a few hours previous, i had nothing to worry about other than reaching the bottom of my proverbial bottle... But 25 minutes later, I was being herded up a crowded staircase scented with that iconic perfume..."last nights hooker" Once inside i was greeted with a barrage of different guests, ranging from the love-hug ravers, overly disheveled hipsters, to the few confused NYU bros who were wandering around searching for the keg-stand room.....and to be completely honest, Rubalad may have a keg-stand room- because it certainly has everything else. Granted, you're not going to find any fancy hibiscus martinis or warm vatted scotch here, the bar consists of 3 types of high school quality booze and a few mixers, but if your looking to climb into a hidden bear cave, scale a ladder to nowhere, or get lost somewhere in a sea of terrifying stuffed animals, you have come to the right place. Every single corner of this dusty warehouse is clogged full of something, and yes, positively every surface is most definitely covered with bits of illegal substances/various bodily fluids. Still, I cant deny, I stayed til 5, dancing the night away in the sweaty crowd of bedazzled 20 somethings. When I woke up the next day I had a respectable hangover, about 7 mystery bruises, & gold glitter dusted through my hair....would I do it again....hmm, perhaps, but it would probably take a pre-party handle of whiskey to get me there.

I hate this place. Just hate it. Its like pulling teeth trying to get me to come to this place. I think booking clubs in general suck, but I guess some girls like feeling like prostitutes. Let alone partying with a bunch of bitchy girls and guys that are just too ugly or have no game (or both) to have waiters pull in girls for them. Music sucks ass, while the dance floor is small. The only good things about this place are the fruit plates they give your table, the convenient parking and ....thats about it. Ew no thanks. This place seriously puts me in a bad mood.
