I came here expecting to be exposed to greatness and a down south feel.
I didnt get that!
Joe is one of the worst managers I have ever come in contact with. He made me feel so uncomfortable as a black man in a club named after a BLACK MAN that I refuse to return unless I know that he will not be there. The staff seemed to all have the same feelings about him being rude, pretentious and extremely unprofessional. The food was ok but the smell of the place was weird as well.

This place is the worst. when i came here I had to wait on line for like an hour and a half with a bunch of people that looked like they were from the hood or something. The only reason i showed up here was because my friend was promoting here a couple of nights (i told him he better not again). I almost got into a fight wit like three dudes over a spot in line. By the time I entered the sorry excuse for an establishment, i felt like i was at the precinct. they made us empty our pockets they confiscated cigarette lighters, pens and other personal items patted each person down for like two minutes while fondling private parts. after the harrassment from that i got to the clerk desk and she told me the price was like 40 dollars when it was supposed to be free before midnight. some stupid lady tells me that i have to tell the bouncer outside that which makes no sense because the bouncers arent the ones charging. so i paid the stupid 40 then throughout the night i had several hoodrat looking females approach me and my friends beging for drinks. then people started fighting one dude choked the hell out of some female and the bouncers started beating random people that they thought were involved up. NYPD cops were posted outside the club ready for action. it was crazy. the club was horrible the people were ghetto as a mayonaise sandwich . if you want to go to a party to deal with rude staff, ghetto patrons, and get frisked and wit on a long line and see fights then this is the spot for you

How this guy isn't playing Madison Square Garden is beyond me, but at the same time it definitely doesn't bother me. It's nice to see such a rockin' performance in a smaller venue. Man this guy can play!! and so can his band. They have to pack you in pretty tight in this place but how else are they gonna get a lot of people in a small club...it's still quite comfortable and the view of the stage has always been great from the tables I've had.
The food seems to have gotten better here over the years. Really good burgers and that sort of thing. Hopefully KWS comes back soon but I'm sure I'll be getting to another performance at BBs soon - there seems to be a very worthwhile show there all the time.
Thank you Kenny & thank you BB'S!
