This is a weird place. Good for a hipster crowd, good beer selection, more on the exotic side with the beers. It's a moody place which on some nights can be cool and some nights, disappointing.

We got a groupon for the ice cage, which was smaller than I expected and not as cold. We were given ice shot glasses that start melting immediately, so get drinking quickly! Not a bad vodka selection in the "cage", with flavored vodkas to allow...More

We went here for the club not for food. What's a Bulgarian bar? No idea - but there was definitely an eastern european vibe to the place with a focus on vodka and the accent of the guy running the place - but not relevant...More

The Ice cage is not worth a visit. The bar is good. Dont expect anything extraordinary and you wont be disappointed.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
