If you can find off-street parking grab it, otherwise they have valet at a standard $10. The entrance is down an alleyway off to the side. Upon entrance there is a coat check (which they say is mandatory but no one made me check mine) and immediately following, a bar. Drinks are a bit on the expensive side. A domestic beer runs $6 to $7 dollars while a standard mixed runs $8 to $9 and a cocktail runs up from $12 to $15. Take note, they do make 'em strong.
On the main floor you'll find three bars and a large dance floor. This is where the DJ's spin and you're treated to all sorts of light, laser, and smoke shows. The decor is mostly metal, glass, and mirror with a few lights behind the bars, stairwell, and a few lights in the floors.
Downstairs you'll find a bit more wood in the decor and another small dance floor. You'll also find three more bars and at least two areas to chill out in, complete with comfy chairs to relax in. The music mix downstairs is R&B, some pop, some techno, and some Spanish grooves.
We did get a few older men trying to pick us up but for the most part no sleaziness on the dance floor and most of the women were dressed tastefully.
I would highly recommend this club for those who are looking for great music, a good boogie, and a swanky night out. Make sure you have your dancing shoes on!
They have VIP rooms and can host small or large functions.
Dress to impress. Fridays 10pm til 4am. Saturdays 9pm til 5am. All major credit cards accepted.
