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.

A bizarre but amazing dance experience. I didn't try the ice lounge area, but just came here for the dancing and drinks. Drinks are a bit overpriced so next time I would pregame before coming. The dancing is EPIC. Nothing compares to this place. The $10 cover makes this place more worth it than any other place in NYC. I can't gush over this place enough - it is ABSOLUTELY A MUST SEE experience.

Unexpectedly fun spot that features live music on certain nights. The bar featured different liquor shots which you could mix with your choice of infused teas/mixers visually displayed on the bar. My friend's birthday party was seated at the upper level seating area for a bit more privacy and dancing space. Overall, a good time.

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

This place is quite awesome! Where else in NYC will you get a chance to pack into an ice cage and have 2 minutes to take as many vodka shots as you can? They give fur coats to women and russian military coats to men as well as russian fur hats so you keep warm in the cage. The vodka in the cage is good quality too, so don't be afraid. You do, however, have to knock on the door so they can let you out (kind of strange - I guess they really lock you in the cage)! The upstairs lounge has a hookah bar but the place gave us a broken hookah and told us we broke it after we realized it wasn't pulling. Unnecessary. Go there for the cage, not the hookah!
