Village Voice's Description
Now under the ownership of Paul Sevigny and nightlife guru Nur Khan, the newly not-so-renovated Don Hill's attempts to revive the venue's scenester grittiness of yore. The interior of this legendary rock 'n' roll bar is still stacked with porn-y photography, penis-themed graffiti, and scribbled cuss words aplenty: crucial artifacts left untouched during the renovations. The events lineup now comprises indie-rocking evenings alongside some of those bouncer-barricaded, people-your-read-about-on-TMZ parties. The main innovation, though, is improved bathroom facilities for both sexes. As Mr. Sevigny says, it's for a good cause: "We want people to get laid in the bathroom," he one explained.

A mid-sized venue that hosts emerging indie artists and weekly Saturday misshapes. Arrive at 10 p.m. on Saturdays for free flavored vodka and stay late for sets from Jarvis Cocker & Andrew WK.
The sound system is sick.
It's may look dirty and scary. But don't worry there has never been a fight here. It's just for looks. Go ahead put your cashmere scarf on the bench, no one will steal it in a million years.
