Yelper Amanda U., who reviewed Barry's Bootcamp on April 3, wrote, "This is a great, very intense workout. It all starts and ends in the 'red room' and is less than an hour. It's a great mix of cardio and strength which you alternate through for the 50 minutes of class. The trainers are also undeniably peppy and motivating."
Yelper Susan B. wrote, "The facility is new, spacious and the team is incredible, and it's jam-packed with amenities, like showers and a smoothie bar. The workouts are full-body with a combination of tread work and floor/weight exercises."
112 Fifth Ave. North, Suite 200
Room 5280 is an escape game spot. Gather up friends or co-workers and race against the clock in one of three escape rooms — each equipped with unique challenges, riddles and puzzles. Participants will have 60 minutes to solve a room.
With a 4.5-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp, Room 5280 has been getting positive attention.
Yelper Sarah J. wrote, "We were a group of eight, so I thought we would get in each other's way. Not the case. It was so much fun. The room was challenging but not impossible and we were able to escape with a few minutes to spare. The puzzles definitely took thinking outside of the box, and it was not 'easy' by any means."
And Yelper Emily H. added, "So fun! So well organized and planned out, also so friendly. It was the perfect level of difficulty! Definitely recommend!"
Room 5280 is open from 11:30 a.m.–10 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday and 11:30 a.m.–11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Yelper S R., who reviewed Lassi and Spice on April 7, wrote, "This is a laid back cafe. They have Indian snack options and it's pretty authentic. They don't skimp on the spice level, but it's not overwhelming."
Poornima B. noted, "I like the nook at the entrance with the potted plants. Super cute and there is a spot to sit right there, perfect for an Instagram shot. I chose the vada pav and the mango lassi. I was surprised that they offered options for the lassi to be substituted with almond milk and coconut yogurt — My gut and I were very happy."
