Based on the large number of ugly people making out on the dance floor at Ruby Skye on Friday night, the ecstasy industry is alive and well. My friends warned me that the crowd is pretty horrible (they used the terms "douchey" and "B&T sausagefest" and other terms containing the words "douche" and "B&T" and "sausagefest" but I digress) and while I dismissed all the advice, saying that I was there to hear one of my favorite DJ's spin (ironically enough, BT) I just couldn't get past the fact that the crowd was a B&T douchebag sausagefest. Oh yeah, and a weak ass Jack & Coke was $10. No bueno. Two stars for the awesome sound system and the relatively friendly staff but unless the Smiths get back together and decide to play Ruby Skye, I doubt I'd ever return.

this place is tiny. thursday nights are $20 for bar seats and $35 for tables. my visiting brother and i hit the bar. we came to see the recently nominated yellow jackets. there's a $10 drink minimum. i had a hot toddy. let's just say they don't skimp on the bourbon. one star for that. our vantage point from the end of the bar was meh. the set up isn't favor if you are sitting at the end of the bar closes to the entrance. i didn't mind not seeing the musicians at all times, but for those of you that do get there early to get your primo bar seat. it's first come, first served. bonus: they invited kids to stay for the second set at no cost. i guess it was slow. not sure they do this all the time.

I would give this .25 stars if rateclubs allowed me to. if you're looking for a restaurant that strives for decor, but lacks in tasty dishes, this place isn't for you. The scene is pathetically decorated in their attempt for modern decor and yes, their food is NOT worth the price you pay. I could have had a better Japanese meal that cost me $10 this junk. Philly in general is terrible in sushi and this restaurant hits rock bottom. Go to Fuji instead down on Chestnut I believe. Steven Starr is a disgrace as a restauranteur.
