    $5 parking in the back or grab metered parking after 8 for free! The venue is upstairs and features a dancing area, seating areas, pool tables, and of course bars. It's nice to move between the rooms depending on what you feel like doing, whether chilling in a booth to chat or dancing like mad. Pretty crowded and popular place.

    I came here for a special event, so this may be more of a reflection on how great the event was, but Busby's seemed like a really cool spot for performances (I guess this is the upstairs portion, not the bar area). Plenty of space, the bartenders are friendly, and there's a lot of free parking in the area.

    Busby's East is a great venue to hold an event. It has so many different rooms, including two lounge areas, a game room, a bar area, and a dance room. I personally like the game room a lot. It has beer pong tables, pool tables, basketball arcade games, and a photobooth. It's definitely a lot of fun to hang out in this room while sipping on drinks all night long. And the appetizers here are delicious! They have all the best fried foods you can ask for. The bar is located right in front of the room, so it's very convenient. The bartenders here are really friendly and bring about good vibes. If you and your friends want to dance the night away, go over to the dancing area. It's pretty huge and there's always good music playing there, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Great pool tables and beer pong tables. The bar has quite a selection of beverages, including Dos Equis for beer. Photo booths, board games, and arcade games can be found along the walls. There's also a lounge. Quite a classy, yet fun place to hang out.

    Not the most cleanest of venues, but fun nonetheless. Upon arrival, you are directed upstairs where there is a bar, pool tables and a few arcade games. There is also a separate room with a stage for small concerts and events such as The Moth.

    It's fine if you want to drink and dance on a Friday night! There is a lot of college students there.

    Never been here during the day so just a review of Friday nights here.

    Busby's is broken up into two sections: The club area and the sports bar area. The club area has a medium sized dancefloor and stage, while the sports bar area has a huge bar and games like pool and arcade basketball.

    Drinks here are STRONG. From what I hear, the crowd here is most popular on Friday nights only.

    You can get on a guest list and avoid the cover charge which I think is either 5 or 10 dollars. Girls are always okay obviously. The bouncers are pretty polite.

    Drink beers, play ski ball, ping pong and enjoy a few tacos. Busby's will take you back to your college roots.
