Night Club
“- Great music! This place plays a great mix of mash ups/top 40s - Two floors: this place has an upstairs and a downstairs. Upstairs is more lounge feel, just to hang out and get some drinks. Downstairs is where you should plan to get your dance on! However, get ready to be up close and personal, because there is absolutely no room to move around too much.. it's basically a small room, with not a lot of space, and a ton of people.”
