This place is like a little haven for me amongst the meat market bars downtown (Dixie, Dirty, etc.) that my sorority girl cousin tries to drag me too. I just wait until she's drunk and then make her come to Tube with me to dance.
The dj's are usually pretty great and I can just dance and not worry too much about some guy trying to rub up on me. So yeah, a lot of coke goes down in the bathrooms, but I always seem to have a good time there.
NYE 2009 here was a blast! My friends and I had a really good time. DJ Hoop Dreams' set was awesome. There were some ridiculous people acting like fools of course, but it was all quite entertaining. Overall, a great experience.
This has become my new favorite place to get a drink and hang out with my peeps. The drinks are reasonable and stiff. I'm a fan of the eclectic decor and they play a good mix of music at a nice volume. It's very dimly lit, but for me that's a definite plus. I look much better in dim lighting.
There's a pretty good crowd every time I'm there, even on weekdays. The crowd always seems pretty attractive as well, but again, that's probably an illusion created by the dim lighting.
What really sets this place apart for me is the service. They're very attentive. I rarely have to actually get up to get a drink. As soon as I finish one, someone's always there to take the glass and ask if I'd like another. Oh, and you know how those little cocktail napkins under your glass get all wet and mushy? I swear to you, the bartender actually replaced mine with a new one when she noticed this.
This little gem is right down the street from me. My friends and I have become regulars for 2 reasons. First, they have shuffleboard, so it's a great place to start our evening. Secondly, they have insanely strong drinks. You know how most bars fill your cup with ice before making your drink? Not at Hal's. You get 4 ice cubes max. It's quite a value.
Now it's definitely filthy and filled with a sketchy crowd. But hey, the drinks are such a great deal and there's no line to wait in. So on my way to a more crowded/expensive bar, I like to stop and save myself a little time and money.
I've found that in my neighborhood a great/trashy evening can be made from the following: drinks at Hal's on the way to Holocene for some dancing, followed by a stop at Sassy's and finally ending with some Potato Champion goodness. Try it if you dare.
I live quite close to Sassy's. After a drunken bbq at my house, we decided that going there was a good idea. And actually, it was. That is, if you're already drunk and just want to buy the shyest person you know a lapdance and then try to watch through the curtain without him seeing you. Good times.
The strippers were quite impressive with their pole tricks...except for maybe the one that fell on her head. Also, I didn't even see any fake boobs. Their boobs were quite tiny actually.
Oh, and the stripper that gave my friend a lapdance...she apologized for being so soft because she just ate a bunch of weed brownies. She then put her vagina in his face...All in all, a good night.
Oh poutine, your delicious gravy calls to me...usually around 3am. Luckily, you're always there waiting for me.
Though my stomach may regret it in the morning, the rest of me doesn't. It is just so freakin' good. Best fries, hands down. And I am a professional when it comes to fries.
