Love this place. I typically don't get here until 2 or 3 but it is a great place to wrap up the night. The DJs there spin some really good music and most people are up dancing.

If you're looking for a fun nightspot with a very mixed crowd, no cover, affordable drinks, dancing, and room to lounge, Happy Ending is worth a visit. While some nights may be less busy than others, its almost certain that you'll meet someone new. However, no promise of a "happy ending" - that's up to you.
