I came here this weekend for the first time because I wanted to check out the Circus night thing they had going on Saturday nights. I was a little wary and didn't really know what to expect here as it was a 19 and over place. the only thing i can say is....girls watch out!! oh my god, i have never encountered so many aggressive old sketchy men in one place ever in my life!! The venue itself is nice. Huge with plenty of dance floors and different types of music going on. I was annoyed though that the upper two floors didn't open up until around 12:30 even though they were supposed to open at midnight, and there really weren't very many circus-themed performances going on. Nothing very exciting. Where were the trapeze artists?? Maybe they didn't come out until later. But yeah the whole circus thing was a bit of a let-down. But back to the sketchy men. It was rather unfortunate because I liked the dance floor and I liked the music, but it was literally impossible to dance for 30 seconds without a sketchy old man (and by old I mean hitting 40, a lot of them) coming up to try and dance with (aka "grope") my friends and I. There was a severe imbalance between guys and girls there, i would say at least 4 or 5 guys per girl, which explains why we were getting attacked from every corner. It was the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. I have never had this much trouble with guys than here. At least it was free to get in so the night was not a total loss (print out the free passes on the webster hall website and you can get in free before 11pm). Coat check was kind of expensive at $4 but what can you do *shrug*. Perhaps this place is better on different nights? I wouldn't come here again to find out though...

I went to a party upstairs Saturday night and it was great. The food was good, and there was plenty of room to sit and talk or walk around and mingle. Recommend for private functions.
