“Default, most frequented bar for whatever mood or outfit your wearing. You ABSOLUTELY MUST take a #brilloselfie in the mirror of the bright pink unisex bathroom near the kitchen entrance. People pile in 10 at a time, don't think twice about it. It's tradition. ”

Music Venue
“I saw my favorite band for the first time at Stage AE! The club side is a smaller section usually reserved for local and upcoming bands; the main stage is the real "stage;" outside shows are the biggest events. The bar's in the back near the entrance. Looking at the stage, bathrooms are on your left. The staircase to the second level is between the bar and merch area / small stage. There's another bar upstairs at bigger shows with a neat seating area.”
