Over the course of a few months I went to Aura Nightclub far more than I would have liked to. But then again, date a musician and a lot of lame things come with the territory. While the coordinator of the club's events is a very friendly, nice woman, the venue itself never seemed to be good for live music. The room has poor acoustics and seating to be able to see the acts on stage is hit-or-miss. The bartenders aren't very warm, even if you're an act (or, in my case, playing pseudo-roadie for an act) and have been to the spot 5 times in two months and have spent money at the bar each time. Even after I dropped $60 at one show the same guy I saw 4 weeks in a row didn't even crack a smile to acknowledge me, or even seemed to care. I imagine that if I didn't get to the venue hours earlier with the bands, that parking would be hell. You can go to Aura if you really want. You just don't really need to.

I've been here a few times and both times it was ok. The dance floor on the 3rd floor is too small for a "club" this size. It's alright if your just going to be here for a minute...otherwise, there are better places along 6th st to hit up. The one thing I will say about this place that is awesome...is Wed. nights....$1 ANYTHINGS...anything...like literally. Imagine how wasted one could get for under $10...but the drinks are a hit and miss. I swear some of my drinks were pure juice...but just ask the bartender to add more they generally will. Other than that...there's not much else to mention that others haven't.

ATTN: It is ILLEGAL to DANCE here. What the hell? I was really surprised when I was told I had to sit down because the bar didn't have a dancing license. Come here, and you'll be transported to the set of Footloose. But if you'r not in the mood to dance, then this is a good little spot to enjoy live acoustic guitar and a beer with a friend.
