This review refers ONLY to the bowling venue. We went on a Saturday afternoon in January. Four of us, myself, my wife and 2 boys bowled two games after waiting about 30-40 minutes for a lane. The cost for just bowling 2 games with shoes was about $92. Very expensive entertainment but if you like very loud music and numerous giant screens, you'll like the atmosphere. You can only order food at the bar. A bartender, who is also making drinks for the entire place, takes your order for food and you must pay for it at the time you order. A light snack for each of us brought the food tab to over $42. The cost wasn't bad but the service was horrible. I had to request trimmings to my burger 3 times and the bartender didn't get it right all 3 times. The fries were ice cold. After complaining to a manager, I received a new steaming hot burger exactly as I requested it with hot fries at no charge. The burger was excellent and cooked very well. Although it is a family friendly place on a Saturday afternoon, with the loud music, I would recommend it more for younger people or couples without smaller children. (My boys are 4 and 6). We had fun but at that cost there are many more choices in Manhattan.

Great, not touristy cafe with tons of seats. Food was tasty, price is fair. A good selection of vegetarian sandwiches. Solid place to have in the neighborhood. Wouldn't go out of my way to go here but if you're in the area looking for a casual place to get lunch, a quick snack or a drink, then this is your place.

I've never gone to a concert here, but I have gone clubbing a few times. First of all, the line to get in is usually enormous and slow (not surprising, but still). The bouncers are super rude, as are the friskers at the front. They should really have more than 2 of those, because frisking one person at a time while there's about 200 waiting is a real drag. The coat check is another haphazard line, and I know people who haven't had items returned at the end of the night (either lost by the oblivious checkers or stolen somehow). Their drink selection is mediocre at best, and the staff as a whole is extremely rude and unapproachable. Also, if you're going there to meet new people, you're in for a disappointment. With 3 floors and 4 rooms of music choices (usually hip hop, 80's, techno & latin), you'd think there'd be a place for everyone. Well, until you actually GET to said rooms. Almost everyone there is annoying, and either in a tight (usually underaged) clique that won't speak to anyone else, or older, creepy questionable types who just want to ogle your assets and be generally lecherous. No thank you. But if that's your thing, have fun. I'm sure the experience would be a lot different if you're there to see a specific band, but for a night of clubbing it's really best to go with a group of your own.
