Save it

At an unmarked hideaway under the Williamsburg Bridge, the swinging clientele dances by candlelight to Latin-infused beats laid down by sexy DJs. Take a breather from the samba or salsa and refuel with tequila shots at the sleek wooden bar. Regulars swear by the unusual postshot practice of dipping one side of the lime in fresh-ground coffee and the other in sugar. You’ll have to try it for yourself.

M.

Pros: Great music, great energy, diverse crowd, friendly bouncers, easy street parking and fantastic drinks! Been coming here now for about 3 years and I love it. Not your average club.


Cons: You may want to think twice before sitting down on these seats....Ive seen them with the lights on and its not a pretty sight. Also when this place gets packed to capacity it is a sweatbox. Come before 12 in order to avoid a ridiculously long line.
