Hey Doug, Sorry we weren't busy, you must've came by on one of the slower mid week nights. Come by on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday and I can promise you wont be the only party people in the club!

Our waitress (Sarah G) was terrific. Chatted about the area and even sat down with us for a minute to learn a bit about us. Insanely rare in a night club. Drinks were good, music was good and the crowd was cool and diverse.
