Yes, this is a topless strip club, but it is frequented by men and women alike. On tuesdays, they have latina night and it is more like a regular club....it gets packed and people are standing around and dancing around the club and hardly paying the girls any mind. The music is excellent and you can be entertained by pretty, naked girls. Its a pretty big strip club and one of the more "classier" hip-hop strip clubs. They sometimes have a free food buffet. I always have fun when I go here. The drinks are pretty expensive, though, and a bottle of water is either $4 or $5!!!
PROS: Good entertainment
CONS: Expensive drinks!!!
This restaurant is located near Columbia Univ. and is frequented by Columbia students on the weekends. They have excellent food! I was very disappointed that they took the ribs off their menu, but they have other great selections...try the lobster bisque soup. They have reasonably priced drinks, and the bartender's are very friendly. The music isn't very good, but the food and drinks make up for it. A great place to go if you're in the mood for a laid-back atmosphere. There's tv's and they usually have the night's sporting events on.
I have been here several times for concerts and the Christmas Spectacular. It is located near Rocafeller plaza. The inside is gorgeous and the concert hall is huge. The best part about the Christmas Spectacular is definately the Rocketts and the Nutcracker performance. Ticket prices for events at Radio City Music Hall are usually reasonably priced, considering that this is such a spectacular venue. It is always a treat to go here.
Bunny's is a local, family-owned, Italian restaurant. They have excellent Chicken parmasean---I can't stress enough how excellent it is. It is tasty and you get a huge portion for a great price. They are also a full-service bar, and their drinks are pretty cheap. They also have great pizza. Their staff is very friendly and the place is never really crowded. I highly recommend this place, and my father loves it!
PROS: Great Chicken parmesean!
Alan's is a place where Fordham-Lincoln Center students often go for lunch. Their salads are excellent. You can make ur own salad with 5 toppings for $5. But their sandwiches are just okay--I don't particularly care for them. They are open from about 7 am till 11pm. If you are a Fordham student, let them know, and ur purchase will be tax free. The cashier ladies are pretty unfriendly, though, so don't expect great customer service.
PROS: Good salads, fordham students = tax free purchase
CONS: sandwiches aren't that good, bad customer service
Cryans is a local hotspot for Maplewood/South Orange residents. It is pretty jumpin on Thurs. nights, and every year on the Weds. before thanksgiving. They have decent drinks at a good price. It is a pretty big bar. They serve food until pretty late; the food is okay. They play a variety of music, and they have karaoke one night during the week.
The Martini Bar is a great, cozy place to have a reasonably priced drink. Try their chocolate Martini--it's excellent! The place is pretty small, and its hard to find a seat at the bar on the weekends, but they have a small lounge behind the bar. It's a restaurant during the day, but I have not tried their food. They have good music, and there is a dress code for men--no sneakers, boots or jeans.
PROS: Good drinks, reasonable prices
CONS: small bar
This is a local family-owned restaurant that is open from about 6 am. until 2 p.m. They make the best breakfast sandwiches around. They have fresh bagels delivered everyday, and I love their taylor ham sandwiches! They are known for their "famous" sloppy joe--a triple decker sandwich on rye with ur choice of meat, cole slaw, provolone cheese and Russian dressing--It's delicious! The staff is very friendly and they deliver nearby. One of the best sandwich places in town. Stop by for lunch!
PROS: Great sandwiches
I just finished my first year at Fordham law school. I like the school a lot. The faculty are great, the school is in a great location and places very well in NYC. There is also an excellent scholars program for persons interested in public interest law. Probably the only downside is the school is very small--I have yet to visit a lawschool as small as ours, and it is a very regional school that does not place well outside of NYC. But if you do well here, you can get a BIGLawNYC job. Housing also leaves much to be desired.
PROS: Location, placement in NYC, Stein Scholars program
CONS: Placement outside of NYC, small school
I have been to the 40/40 club twice and both times I had an okay experience. This is a sports bar, not a club, so there isn't a real dance floor. People try to dance upstairs but it is too small and crowded. There is never anywhere to sit down like you would be able to at regular bars. To sit at a table or the bar, you must buy a bottle. Their martini's are good and reasonably priced and the music is good. Also, the wings are excellent. Just be prepared to stand up all night unless you buy a bottle. There is a strict dress code for men--no jeans and men must wear shoes.
PROS: good drinks, music and wings
CONS: no where to sit, dance area too small.
