  • Daily 5pm-2am
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining
This Eastside club takes flight several nights a week, offering gritty ambiance and great sounds. Some might call it a dive - albeit a very big, multilevel one - due to the sometimes sketchy scene outside, but its unfettered charm is well-suited to the raw sounds within. Inside, the vibe is friendly and totally unpretentious, with peeps seemingly more concerned about the musical offerings than with being seen. Rowdy live bands and rappers rouse the outdoor patio stage, and bangin' DJs fill up the big dance floor inside.
