Be warned, cash only! Otherwise, it's not pretentious at all. Fun, with good music and a great dance floor. Drinks were good, service was great. I had a blast! Only wish it wasn't cash only, but as long as you're prepared, it's probably a better way to avoid getting blackout drunk. I mean if that was something you were concerned about.
