Ok, so I'm a little biased on this place because I work here BUUUTTTT it really is the new hotness! Finally, a boutique club/lounge done right and with consistently amazing music! And the food is killer too! I think my current favorite is a pizza with butternut squash puree as the sauce with bacon and sage on top. It definitely walks the line of savory and sweet like a swan. Oh yeah, the drinks! I sling'em. They rule! All the bartenders are friendly and sexy ;)

SOB's is a great venue which affords one the ever disappearing luxury of Intimate performances from an eclectic genre of artists/performers. I have seen a few shows there, from Floetry to Collie Buddz. Their monthly calender is always filled with interesting gigs. My one disappointment there was a 'Jimmy Cliff' show that was cancelled by the artist. SOB's is also a great place to 'shake-what-your-mama-did-or-didn't-give-you' on one of their many Brazilian Dance Nights. The Bar is Ok, I cant speak on the food because I've never eaten there.

Here's the deal: Wednesday night IS MJQ night and it's wonderful! highlights: dancing. DJ spinning. two bars. two rooms. dancing. lots of seating. and more dancing BUT I give four stars and not five due to the logistics of getting there... if you want close, free parking, get there at 11 and parallel park on the street on St Charles Ave. because it won't be crowded yet at all. The drawback is that it won't be crowded yet at all. In fact, the doors don't open until 11:00pm and the party doesn't get rolling until midnight. If you're with friends, you might like getting there at 11 and watching the crowd buildup and thus bring the dance floor to life. But if you're there JUST to dance or JUST to meet strangers, you'll be bored until midnight. And gosh, don't dress up. This isn't Buckhead. But it isn't Sunday School either. The style is skanky/emo/posh/grunge. I'd say...
