  • Music good. Crowd boring. Ah well.
  • This is the best place to chill with your friends in a non-pretentious way. All other big, front club is reek with the showing-off vibe, but not this place. You get a clear wide view of the river and the Elisa floating restaurant. Entrant before 11pm is free, 100k after that.
  • Was here Friday night. Good DJ from Berlin. Good people, mix of expats and locals.
  • Great underground music. Nice crowd. Friendly staff.
  • Great music, great soundsystem, great vibes
