Couldn't go dance it out at the Crystal, so I danced it out here. Went on a night sponsored by 95.5FM, so that might have affected things some. But it seems like, at night, this *really* becomes a danceclub--don't go there if you're looking for the low-key escape. Music was a pretty good mix, mostly current Top40 with some R&B/hiphop thrown in. Yeah, there's some dudebros there that'll grind up on you no matter what, but whatever, those people are everywhere.
As for the place itself: what a wall of shots at the bus there, gotta try some of those next time. Three bars means getting a drink isn't a scrum up there. Artie the Bartender seemed pretty cool, even guessing straight off that I am a whiskey kind of gal, and then making me something girly and disgusting anyway later when I asked for it.
As a plus, the bathroom seemed clean, functional, and stocked--at least on the ladies' side, idk about the men's. I think I've found my place when I need to just dance it out to some club music. Won't find much alt stuff here, won't find a girl in heels below three inches (except me, the loner in flats and perfectly happy like that), etc. But for what it is? It's not half bad.
I went here once and i'll never go back. It kinda reminded me of a jersey shore party. Lots of douchebags. The bartender what i heard said, 5 dollars for my drink, I laid the money down, he grabbed it, i walked away. Then he ran over to me and said, "why did you just walk away?" He said the drink was 6 dollars, ok, fair enough,my bad, so i didn't have the extra dollar so i ran my card. Then he tried to tell me that he did not take my cash. I said sir, i visibly saw you take my five dollars, can i have it back...still denying he took it. So the bouncer head douche talked to me and i told him the problem, and he said well you have to talk to him about it. I wasn't gonna let this go, arguing with him over 5 dollars, wasn't the money, was the principle of it. Just because you are some hotshot bartender, i don't give a s***, i tip when i want, thats my right you don't have to attempt to steal money i work hard for, when you make prob twice as much as me. So he finally said here if it makes you feel better. Yes thank you, now f*** off :) The former Candy's was a little classier.
