The editorial review calls it a 'chilled out lounge.' When Sputnik is at its best, it is that - a great space, quirky/hip decor, cheap eats and a mellow vibe can be found about HALF the time when I visit Sputnik. The other half of the time you'll either find
A. the music too loud and metal/thrasher rock oriented to really enjoy a conversation, beverage, snack, or even 10 minutes of lounging
or B. The giant projection screen usually used for background screening of art house movies being used as a giant TV to show a ball game, with sound at full blast.
If they could be consistent in their vibe, they'd get a consistent customer out of me!
Pros: cheap, big , good food
Cons: too loud, weird music, ball games
