It's a pretty small bar. Be ready to get up close and personal with the band!

If you like Blues music it was great. I did not attend the venue as this place allows you to go to the other club across the street. That place had a great kitchen with soul food which was very good. Not too far away from the L train.

Loved the vibe and authenticity of the place. It looks like it could have been around since the 1930s speakeasy ...

Small and a little loud but the caliber of the music trumps everything!

Great experiance. Very small, very crowded but great music, great people, a true blues bar experiance. I will for sure return and bring some friends who will be able to enjoy what my girlfriend and I enjoyed.
