Formerly a White Tower restaurant, then the iconic Albany club the QE2, this building has recently been reborn as the Fuze Box Lounge. It's a great place for drinks and dancing, and there's frequently live music.
Also, they do theme nights every week. Mondays are Indie Rock, there's karaoke on Tuesdays, Wednesday is "Happy Hour Night." Swing Night is on Thursday with lessons at 8:30 and open dancing from 9:30 to close. Friday is Punk Night, and Saturday is "Totally 80s".
Dress Code: No actual dress code, but people frequently dress up for the various theme nights.
They have BTC and Crooked Rain Crooked Rain in the juke box. And as you know this is enough for me to love the place. We used to walk here and just chill all evening. A couple pitchers of Bass and a fist full of dollars for the Pavement.
Dress Code: Dress code? Yeah ok.
We used to walk here, mostly, because it was closest place to go. Pitchers of Bass for under $10 and baseball on the tv made it a great place to go hang.
It was here that I witnessed the return of the King to the Yanks.
Dress Code: Too many college wannabe crowd so dress anyway you want. You might just stand out. And that has never been a bad thing.
