Very eclectic space. On the main floor, you can find some live music, a dance area, and a good bar with some great bartenders to take care of you. The first time I came here, my friend and I had been drawn in by the random ska music coming from inside. We had some tasty hot cider, danced a bit, and, when it got crowded, headed upstairs to the balcony to watch the end of the band's set. In the basement, you'll get a dive bar feel. There's a glass room called the ice cage filled with different vodkas. People pay a fee to enter the room with a shot glass and a goal of drinking as much vodka as they can within two minutes. Whatever kind of night out you're looking for, this bar is always a unique experience.

Honestly it would have been a great experience but I later discovered they added an extra $10 to my credit card bill for a tip (I didn't leave one because the bartender was super rude). Next time I'm paying with cash, if I even decide to come back at all.

This place screams EURO-trash dive bar meets I hope that you speak English kind of place. 3 floors of fun. *** Decor screams divey with bras, panties and other items dangling from the ceiling. Tasteful nude art as you enter the venue. *** Main floor has a bar with wooden swing sets to sit on as chairs. The kitchen is also located on this floor. You can order hookah and smoke it on the main floor but the same space is used as a dance floor once it hits 12am so you might want to take the smokes up to the second floor. *** MUST TRY : House Apple Cider; it is well made but the cocktail could have been stiffer. *** 2nd floor is used primarily for hookah and dining. It has a great view of the dance space below. *** 3rd floor is where the infamous ICE CAGE is located. *** ICE CAGE; a refrigerated room with shelves of vodka and shot glasses made of ice to drink from. You have 2 minutes upon entering the cage to drink up to 6 shots of the assortment brand and types of vodkas available in the cage. They are lenient on how many shots you can drink. The world record was 21 shots and a trip to the hospital. *** DON'T LET THAT BE YOU *** There is a throw up bucket inside just in case you can't hold your liquor. *** FREE ICE CAGE ENTRY IF YOU ARE THE BIRTHDAY GIRL/BOY ON YOUR BIRTHDAY ONLY. VALID ID REQUIRED. *** Regular price is $10 to open ice cage door $20 entry, $30 for 2 minutes of chugging. EXPENSIVE but can be well worth your time if you are a quick drinker. *** There is also an additional bar, dance space as well as bathrooms on the basement floor.

Where the fun always is! Great for dancing to international / balkan tunes! The party here gets wild, be careful how much "rakia" (the famed strong bulgarian liquor) you can handle ;)

Great music and great vibe. The DJ was incredible playing several numbers from languages across the world, including some trippy Punjabi songs. One of the best nights you'll have in an informal setup in NY city.

It is a fun place with different kinds of music playing from around the world. However, I called three times prior to confirm that they start charging people at the door at 10 p.m. Me and my friend arrived thirty minutes before ten and they were charge people. The people in the front was the manager and the girl that collects money. It really pissed me off because the manager was a scum bag and the place was fun.

Do yourself a favor go here on a Friday(live band check the calendar) or Saturday. I used to go here a bit when it was at the old location off of Canal. Over the years the crowd has changed but still remained pretty fun. Not the best place to go solo, bring a group of friends and get ready to dance the night away... -- Try the Apple Vodka drink, or one of the Bulgarian beers. -- Don't get sucked into the vodka cage with out friends -- Try to get here a little earlier especially in the summer
