This place was great. It's a weird underground cave thing with good music and dancing. I was there Halloween weekend so I imagine that helped but everyone was nice and we had a great time.

This place made a huge splash on the scene during 2015-2016. If you're lucky, there will be a bunch of hot art kids lurking after a gallery opening.

Place sucked straight up. Perhaps with dim lighting, some up lighting on the walls, a solid dj, and tons of people it would be a good nightclub. But this was not that or we were clearly there at an off time. It was like a...More

I have been here a few times since I live in the area. On weekends it gets super crowded and you will come across drunk people dancing with not too much room. I prefer to come for happy hour when drinks are half off and...More

It really gets crowded on weekends. Not enough space to dance and move around. Bartenders serve well and Drinks are mixed well and small bites are tasty. Decors are really interesting. Restrooms can be a little cleaner!

It is easy to miss, but it is a great basement bar fashioned after a cave with cool cave art. We didn't eat there but drinks were cheap. $3 beers. The staff was super friendly and attentive. Id reccommend it.

This is a VERY interesting space. It's basically made up to look like a real stone cavern. The mostly Italian menu is ok. I would more heavily recommend a visit for the space than the food.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
