Went there at 11 last night. Classified was already packing up. What a joke! Place was almost empty. Think those Doctors that hired Ted want it to fail so they can have a write off...

The place next door was louder in blu then blu's system. By install do you mean set up the speakers out by the back deck?

It was good on Thursday....it's still basically the Hollyrock...There needed to be another big bar out there for Thursdays, it was getting too crowded at the Harp + Sickenberger.

The Bomb was pretty Lame...get Showtime or Syndicate or Pegs or Gridley or anyone other than the Bomb.

I thought the bartenders were really good.
Completely re-modeled

This was remodeled? They added a roof over the stage and took out the bar that as near the stage. Other then that they painted everything blue and splattered the blue paint everywhere. The place use to be diffrent before. But all the bands they have playing on Thursdays seem to be the same bands celtic has already had. Then they add in dj's. So you have a band and a dj in the same night? Makes no sense if ppl want to dance they go next door once the band starts. If ppl wanna hear a band they go to celtic.

Just another Gin Mill in town. Utica's best industry for the drunken 20 to 40 year old crowd.

I think Ted brought his investors down there to look around on a Saranac Thursday night when the street was packed. Probably told them that it was like this every night. They are from out of town , didn't knowa ny better.

Someone got punched in the nose blood everywhere thursday night, all the "security" aka 15-20 yr olds didnt know what to do!
wow

yea I saw that. Security wasnt even around to help the emt's get to her. He has his 15 year old working at a club. Gotta cut corners wherever you can I guess when your paying for all the alcohol up front.

Its still basically a seasonal bar. Numbers don't add up for this place to make money. Investors must be looking for write offs! That's why they hired Ted who's failed at everything he's done.

Absolutely the best place on Varick for a club feel. those who didnt enjoy it are either too old for it or just havent left the town of Utica before. Those who couldnt hear the music must be deaf, those speakers are the best on the market.Sickenberger is just a parking lot with a strobe light. not a fan
wow

Best on the market? Place to be no sickenburg is more of a club feel then blu. People there are dancing and there isnt a shit band on stage. Sorry 2 speakers are not top of the line. If your standing on the deck you hear the music next door over BLU. As for just a parking lot its a lot more then blu is. It has an inside that isnt just a house. I am not to old to know it wasnt a good time and ive been to a lot of nicer places then utica. Not to mention blu as better when it was holyrock now its just another bar that needs a louder sound system. Sure those 2 speakers are good but not for the whole area dont want to hear music from net door over blu. But then again the music there is better especially this coming thursday
