This is probably my least favorite bar in all of metro Detroit. The bartenders are always grumpy and the bands are usually some form of emo. Every time I've been there (about three or four times) the upstairs is full of a bunch of 18-21 year olds checking out the emo band on stage and frankly and I've had a pretty boring time.
Parking is a pain in the ass and the place is surrounded by bums on a Friday and Saturday night. You can park on a nearby street for free, behind the theatre for $4 or across the street at the National City for $5, I think.
Frankly, if you're looking for a fun place to party and drink (and not see an emo band) keep moving down woodward to Foxtown or Greektown.
