This review is for the night club not the restaurant. A friend of mine goes here often, and begged me to come join her here on a Friday. So one day I gave in, and went to see what this place was about. It's on 5th street so there isn't much parking, but there is a Rite Aid across the street and most people park in the lot there, and just walk across the street. It's a pretty good sized lot, so parking shouldn't be an issue until later in the night. I've been here a few times, and on occasion you will end up in line outside, but not for very long. They have coat check which is convenient, and cover is usually $10 or $15 depending if you come before or after 10 or 11. If you come early enough, you will be able to catch the open bar. They usually play Reggaeton on Fridays, with an occasional Bachata song. The place is usually jammed packed, and the women's bathroom line eventually gets longer throughout the night as with any spot. Around midnight, dancers usually come out and dance on different platforms that are stationed throughout the club. There are usually 2 girls, and 2 guys, and they are definitely eye candy. The guys are usually shirtless, and the girls look nice in their clubwear outfits. On occasion I've seen the girls use Hula Hoops or glow sticks as props, which usually go with the theme if they are having one that night. My big gripe is the crowd. There are usually some idiots getting in some ridiculous fight, so they definitely have security present and ready at all times. I'm also not too keen on the lack of seating. There aren't many places or tables to sit, and there is one worker who comes around and tells CERTAIN people to get up if they are sitting at one of the tables. It's not the VIP area (because they have a VIP room in the corner), so I'm not sure what that's always about. One star for parking, and one for the dancers. I haven't been here in such a long time, and I don't feel like I'm missing too much. I'm not dying to go back.

Let me get to the point, BQE tries to be classy by having that "No hats" Rule, the place looks great, service is good, and the ambience is pleasant. But, the thing that pissed me off, is that how the hell DO YOU ONLY HAVE THREE PING PONG PADDLES?!!!!.. I mean, i know its just a small issue, but its things like that that can make or break a business. First, it is only limited paddles, what can we expect next? No full set of billards balls and one chalk per table?? Two Stars!!

Who are all these people giving such more reviews to Medjool. I guess I understand poor service, but that's something I have yet to encounter on no less than seven visits here for either dinner or drinks. The upstairs roof is a huge draw, and the space is large but somehow cozy. The food is delicious, and very reasonable. I also like the one-two punch of being able to go here and to Laszlo and Foreign Cinema, it's a good reminder that all is not lost on the Dirty Boulevard (I was just listening to Lou Reed's New York, so pardon the reference).
