    Everything about the place was amazing the food the atmosphere the vibes the music the service. I gave them 4 stars because there is no AC they have fans but that’s just not enough for a room full of people dancing and moving around. They need a better air system other then that it’s a great place.

    I’ve been trying to experience brunch for the longest here and I’m so happy that my girls and I finally got the chance! The vibes are lit AF!!! Food was okay, drinks were really good ,BUT the way it was hot in there made no sense. Y’all gotta fix the air conditioning ASAP because that was crazy. Aside from not wanting your wig to slide off your head, I really didn’t wanna pass out. Aside from the heat, I most definitely enjoyed myself and will be back when y’all have AC lol

    I dislike the fact that we had to leave so fast because it’s 3 different sessions. Other brunches ppl are able to party longer. And there was no A C inside. When you’re drinking it feels even hotter. The DJ and the MC host was the best part of the brunch. The food was ok.

    This establishment needs to closed. Got there for my birthday,once I walked in I could feel how hot it was. There were fans everywhere and people sweating. Hostess came to seat my party and when I say the seats were dirty , tables were dirty chairs were dirty. I had to ask for the table to be cleaned. You could see the dirt being wiped away. I had to leave and find another location to celebrate my birthday. Disappointing!!!!!!!!!

    I reserved the International Brunch series for my birthday brunch a party of 8. They give a 100 minute time slot for your party. I waited 60 minutes for our drinks to come out, we ordered the Thickb*tch, the waitress said something about waiting for ice. Our food came out 20 minutes after the drinks. There was no air conditioning. They best thing about all the money, we spent was the DJ, Emcee, and the food. The service and time we spent waiting was ridiculous. My service B, stated she would sent that manager out, that NEVER happened.

    On the day I went NYC was experiencing a heat wave & the brunch venue had no air conditioner or fans it was as hot outside as inside, maybe hotter, Also the waitress was very nice but only came to us 2 times, when we arrived & when it was time for the check.

    The venue was very very hot there was no air circulating. The food was very flavorful, the jumbo mimosa was good and worth the money for my party of 8, the hookah wasn't the best but it was pulling, and the music and MC was fantastic. The overall vibe was really fun but service took a very long time. It is good that the music is on and people are dancing though because I guess you don't want your brunch to be over too quickly.

    If they had more staff and a better system for reservations, my experience would’ve been better. Also seemed dead inside but there was a line outside. Didn’t make sense. At least put people at the bar to wait for tables so it seems full inside.
