I was dragged there the other night with a group of friends and that place is the pits. Super loud, lame pop music, packed with cologne covered drunks, sticky floors... Sort of like the real Rush Street in Chicago, now that I think about it... I couldn't get out of there fast enough.

Just don't mess with the employee's or bouncers in a bar. You pick a fight, you fine it.

Re-entering a bar that you have just been kicked out of usually ends in tears.
