Really not a pleasant experience. Large, warehouse-like bar (reminded me of a barn), full of young people, mostly guys, and expensive drinks. Slow, bitter service at that.

Celebrated my girlfriends birthday here this past weekend. We all had a lot of fun, drank WAY too much, and danced the night away....the bathrooms (from what I can remember) were kinda lousy. Other than that, we had a fab time!

I came to M1-5 this past Sunday to watch the Jets. I found the place to be reasonably priced, and had an overall good experience. Unfortunately, my Jets got pounded. On a good note, there was plenty of seating and the food was delicious.

Things I hate about m1-5
1) meathead doormen on power trips
2) overpriced watered down drinks ($15 each)
