I've only gone twice, and my experience has been "meh." I was lured in by friends and the advertisement "5 shots for $10" but perhaps the nights I went were just incidentally off nights.
There was a velvet rope with bouncer deal, apparently they are trying to make it more upscale and weed out people not dressed nicely. Which seems weirdly snooty for the funky, semi-gritty, college, St. Marks Sq. area. I was wearing a nice blouse and flip flops tho on both occasions, which apparently fits the bill of nice, umm ok?
It's sort of a sad, really dark, long room with the back wall illuminated with a projected film. Last time I went they were playing "The Graduate," I came in on the scene where, the main character has forced the female lead to go to a strip club and she was humiliated, kinda depressing as hell when you are with your friends trying to drink and be merry haha.
Drinks as mentioned are cheap, that's what it's got going for it. Pre-game on-
