The rip off merchants at boom boom r8oom charge $15 entry even after they stop serving drinks. What a scam, avoid this place like the plague.

Amazingly nice staff. We catered a private party here and the staff was great to work with. Super clean yet not too fancy. Really like the atmosphere and great cocktails. Can't wait to go back when not working.
