Amalia had always been one of my favorite Friday night partying spot, until its recent "private guest list" policy that the management imposed. More frustratingly, this sudden new policy came off in a very discriminatory manner. DJs there were amazing. They play all kinds of pop and hip hop music, from Gaga to Ke$ha to BEP, all the guys and gals, sisters and sista, got to dance their heart out. Drinks are fairly priced and there is no cover. People were friendly and everyone had great time there. Then on one Friday, there was a special Madonna new album release special night. Nowhere on the posters indicates that's a private party going. Like usual, it says "NO COVER, FULL OPEN BAR TILL 11" We arrived around 10ish, the bouncer told us that there's a private party going on, and we need to be on the guest list. As we were about to leave, there were other group of people came in and as they entered, the bouncer just asked them for the ID. NO PRIVATE PARTY WAS MENTIONED, NO NAME CHECKED OR ANYTHING. Then a third group stopped by, they were stopped at the door. We stood there for a god 10 minutes and trying to figured out what kind of a private party was going on that they did not specify on the poster. But we couldn't help but noticed, Most of the people were blocked were either Asians and Latinos! As we tried not to get too sensitive, we decided to split and some bar hopped around HK, and some decided to go back to Amalia again after a couple of hours. Then we found that those who returned, got into the club as they went in individually. So we gave the party management the benefit of doubt and went back to Amalia after 3 hours. We waited on line. When the bouncer saw us, he decided to screamed out "guys, if your name is not on the guest list, don't bother coming in!" I really wonder if anybody else have encountered the same issue. This incident really changed my perception of Rockit, the party management. It is supposed to be a gay party, that shows tolerance and acceptance of individual who want to be who they are. But by imposing such a stupid and racist "guest list" policy, it was just plainly disgusting.

This place constantly tries to reinvent itself and become classier, but somehow always attracts the same crowd of sketchy lowlifes...and me, of course. We spent hours upon hours shooting pool here in high school, and the majority of the rating is for their pool special: $15 for 3 hours for 4 people. Sweet. They have a liquor license some of the time, it seems to come and go, despite the same management. But the people working there are pretty laid back, maybe a little too much so (that would explain the liquor license issue!). The food isn't so good as to be worth the price, but the fries are pretty decent and the milkshakes are definitely good stuff. However, Wendy's is just down the block....so maybe it's worth it to eat before or after.
