I've had the same experience as the reviewers below and can confirm that it's been like that for the last eight years. You play behind a railing to a very thin bar. The good news is that there is practically ONLY standing room! We were rushed out because of a party as well.

This is NOT a venue for bands to play at.
This place is set up for private parties or some nonsence. Before the other bands even fininshed playing their set, the owners/employees were basically rushing us out the door to make room for a party that was coming in.

Place is basically not a venue... Played on a Friday night to NO ONE. We had out usually crowd of ten or so but no one there just hanging out. More of a party place, sound guy said people pay $350 a table there, and the tables were incredibly small, as was the place itself. Had to stop playing at 10 because of a bacheloret party coming in. Sound guy said the place was jumping on Thursday, but I doubt it. I would never play here again and unless you draw VERY well in NYC don't even bother, plus if you draw well you would be better of elsewhere.
