This place rules! Starting with cool and entertaining door men always willing to chat or light up your smoke. Then as soon as you enter the swanky velveted wall classic bar, you ...


I originally really liked this bar, but after constant rudeful treatment from bouncers/bartenders, I felt I had to abandon this bar. I happen to work in the "biz" so getting in h...

No room to even breathe! 10/19/2005

I heard that this was going to be a great bar because they have cool music, a little dance floor and good drinks but after going there I beg to differ. I went on a saturday night with 5 girls and it still took a long time to get in, I would think it would be when we got in we could barely move. People were like glued on the wall and on the barstools, and you barely had anywhere to walk. The crowd turned out to be kind of ghetto with drunk people picking fights with sober people. I wouldn't ever go back there. more

Great place to go on weekdays 8/11/2005

Circle Bar is great place to go if you want to meet some people. The crowd is very social and the vibe is very vibrant. Drink are kind of steep, but what the heck, you don't go there to get smashed (big bouncers will throw you out in a sec). Weekdays night are the best, because there are no lines to get in and you can actually move around inside. On weekdays you can even have enough space to dance a little. more

  • The Scene
    A neighborhood dive for three decades, this Main Street bar has redefined itself as a destination for the single, 20-something lush. After enduring the sometimes half-block weekend wait outside, ex-fraternity boys and grown-up party girls cram into the crowded dark den where drinkers radiate from the central circular bar. The more intimate booths and bar stools fill quickly, but the best hottie-spotting--and shoulder-brushing--is done while squeezing against the red-lit walls, haphazardly decorated with old photographs. Circulating socializers eventually find enough room to groove on the dance floor.

    The Draw
    Swanky singles come to get down and dirty at this unabashed pick-up scene, where dancing to N.W.A. and the Beastie Boys seems secondary to making out on the dance floor. The red and black atmosphere also helps to bring out devilish tendencies, especially after downing a few strong drinks--most likely paid for by the winking cutie sitting nearby.
