This is a great club for a mix of people. It is a little classier than some of the clubs. In the summertime, it is awesome because they have a nice patio where you can sit outside and drink.

They have a dance floor upstairs and a cigar lounge on the other side. Downstairs there is a main bar area and several pool tables.

Upstairs there is a huge two-level dance floor that is only open on Fridays and Saturdays. Friday nights feature Top 40 dancing and on Saturday nights there are live bands.
