I'm surprised at how many bad reviews this place had because I actually really enjoyed myself here! We came here for the happy hour (on a Thursday) after a failed attempt at M&S and were really glad we did! I haven't been here since they changed owners but I definitely like the vibe and decor better. ALL drinks are half off from 5-8pm EVERYDAY :) Also, I tried their pulled-pork sandwich (a recommendation from our really nice waitress) and thought it was pretty awesome. Better than other typical bar food and it was quite tender. I wouldn't recommend getting the tacos (2), albeit tasty, since the price wasn't worth the quantity. It was fun times grabbing a beer and relaxing to some random sports news on the many LCD TV's. Definitely will come back!

I was a fan of this club. We actually met and chatted with the DJ, and the staff was very kind. Though $5 mandatory valet isn't that cool, it does keep your car safe and saves some hassle when it's cold outside. The club has plenty of bar and dance floor space. The music was very danceable and nostalgic with tasteful hip-hop, dance and top 40 hits from then and now. Granted, I was pretty drunk and with a group of wonderful friends - my memory of the venue is definitely a little biased towards that. But I can say that nothing about the venue turned me off one bit as far as enjoying a buzzed clubbing night out. I can easily add this spot to my list of clubs I like along with MBarGo, Amnesia, Sky Club, Delux Lounge, Club V, Elysium, etc. But the nice thing about this place was that it had the swank and classy lair type feeling without the patrons reflecting that too much. Folks here were pretty sharp looking but also down to earth, a diverse mix reflective of metro Detroit. Probably a good amount of Royal Oak and Ferndale hipsters mixed in with suburbanites from my way as well. Ferndale is pretty accessible off I-75 for east and west siders and those coming from Detroit, which is nice. Drink prices were good for beer (about $3-$4) but cocktails bordered on a little pricier ($8-10). My only gripe was that no smoking ban has taken effect here, so it did get a little smoky in the bar area, and I don't like coming home with smoky smelling clothes. Some nights are busier than others, and so on slower nights they just open up the more intimate basement section, and on busier nights the main floor is open.

Again, a place that the website said was open at six on Sunday. We bring friends from out of town. Six of us, only to find out it is not open at all. grrrrrr. Of course, then I heard it is quite pricey to bowl, so, I think I will stick to the 'hood bowling alley on my side of town...
