Village Voice's Description
Three paintings--a fast car, a busty woman, and Dirty Harry--decorate the first of this enormous venue's three floors. Like the scruffy bands that play in the bar's underground performance space, Fontana's image is overtly rock 'n' roll. Beyond the primary bar located near the entrance, you'll find a chandelier room with massive ceilings and a movie-projector screen hanging above. Half a floor below, a pool table resides; the private party room is located entirely elsewhere. And even on slow nights, Guns N' Roses songs are always blasting on the speakers by your side.
Tips from foursquare
Bring your ID. Even if you are clearly someone who shouldn't need it, you will, because the door guy is a jerk, which you'd know just from his mustache, anyway.
