sloshed hipsters, coked up queens, muzak, booze, chinese gourmet.

clientele

mosh pit of uni kids, poofs, hipster brigade, fag hags, trannies and a few straight guys hanging around trying their best to loosen up...

service

soooooo appalling. literally 1 bar guy per 200 customers. just as well it's a fun party.

interior

first level is a fairly standard trendy chinese restaurant with wooden tables, crimson lighting and a few buddha statues. the basement is a total asian opium den with huge fishtank, massive imperial antique bed units, velvet pillows, wood carvings and gen

actually quite a good chinese restaurant. the reason we like this place though is because of the basement club event on wednesday nights. despite being full of overzealous nyu students, this place is actually really fun. happy hour between 10-11pm. total debauchery in the back rooms always wins our vote..
