Address: 305 Spring St.
For that perfect combination of art and grime, hip-hop minus the shiny shirt, Sway couldn't be beat during the Complex Decade. You might run into a gang of models vegetating among the Moroccan decor, but there was nothing flossy about the experience. Added bonus: a terrific Morrisey night that brought out all your favorite rockers, party girls, and drugs.
