La Sala/Royal Cantina at 58 North 3rd Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY 11249, USA
They take advantage of artists and performers by having them put down a deposit to use the space and charge show goers food and drinks money. If they make enough with the guests, then the artists are not charged for using the space. They do not have a tip jar for the artists and keep all the money for themselves. Diana Beshara (http://www.dianabeshara.com) and her boyfriend run the place. I went there to see a friend perform, they did not specify on their events page that there would be a door fee, so I thought it was a free show. When I got there, Diana kept badgering me to buy a drink, lied about the door fee and started a tip jar for the artists after I inquired about not seeing one. My friend who I went to see perform later on told me that they did not give them any money.
They only care about the money, and will ruin their own reputation over a non existent $10 door fee.
