Went to the show on 9.29.18 the acts were awesome. The ambience was great. I have no complaints about this venue and will hopefully be returning soon.

The sitting arrangement is less than ideal, as you’re likely to be paired with strangers and have to share a small table. Two drink minimum, which seems a bit much to ask when you’re already paying $50 for a ticket. Just a small/cramped place in...More

We made reservations months in advance and got placed at an uncomfortable table with no room...airline seats are more comfortable. When I asked the guy seating us if we could move to another table his response was "that table is reserved for the owner." I...More

We went to the late show, 10PM, and were sat next to some nice people from Chicago. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The opening act got a couple of chuckle, but the guy after wasn't so entertaining. We left early.

This was my second time at the club. The first time the ticket price was 15 a person. Last night however, it was 34 a ticket, Dave Attel was performing so we knew why it was extra money. The club is very cozy. Drink prices...More
