18 NW 3rd Ave., 241-8823. 5 pm-2 am nightly.
It is sort of like partying inside a test tube, but somehow, the party fits. Despite being almost uncomfortably small, Tube manages to shove DJs (usually of the hip-hop variety) and live bands into its delightfully dingy quarters in Chinatown. Once a denizen of the hipsterati, it has lately siphoned off a bit of the brah crowd from neighboring Dirty, but remains an almost literal hole in the wall that can get packed to the walls very quickly on a Friday night. MATT SINGER.
What to drink: Stick with cheap beer.
Entertainment: DJs, live music.
