My friend gathered a bunch of people for his birthday and we were all set to go to China Club- they refused to honor what they sent him in a promotional e-mail and I've never seen my friend madder. We rushed him into the nearest bar without a cover to get a drink. What a stroke of luck that place was the Mean Fiddler! \r
We had an AMAZING time, drank a lot, danced on the bar (and dressy or not we had some pretty girls with us so we were asked to get back up again a few times), had car bombs and we barely remembered the earlier fiasco. We go back every year now- it's been 4 years. Sadly, we don't go back at other times but I always reccomend this place and would go back in an instant. there was one year where a private party blocked the bar and they didn't allow us to dance on it but we still had fun. I have never been downstairs though in all these years. \r
I credit the Mean Fiddler with saving my friends birthday and the evening for about 30 people - turned our frowns upside down! The crowd is cool and the bouncers are too- nothing too stuffy, too young- great people having a great time.
Pros: Great prices, great crowd good DJ
Cons: really none
