It's rare that I find a lounge/club that is a solid four stars. However, Slide fits the bill! Ironically, it is also the only club I've ever been escorted out of, due to regurgitating everything I drank/ate back out on one of the booths. Classy, huh? I hear that it's difficult to get into Slide if your group fails to have a good guy-to-girl ratio, with predominantly male groups being unable to get in at all. However, by arriving early this issue can be avoided. The second time I came here, we were a group of 8 guys and 2 girls including myself. By arriving slightly before 9pm, we not only got in easily, but got a strip of free drink tickets from the bouncer as well. After 2 rounds of free Long Islands, everybody was set for the night. Therefore, I can confirm that they don't skimp on their alcohol! There's no cover before 11pm, but I believe they start charging $20 after that (don't quote me on that though). The place itself is nice. One main dance floor and bar area and plenty of seating. It's in a basement, hence the slide down to the basement level. However, for those in dresses/skirts, the slide is off limits and you'll be forced to take the stairs down. Ventilation is adequate as well. Despite how utterly packed this place gets, the scent of B.O. does not pervade the place and I don't feel drops of condensation dripping on me from above. The crowd is diverse too and mostly un-creepy. A definite plus! Music is good. Nice mix of top 40's, house, etc. Stuff that's fun to dance to. All in all, Slide is pretty awesome. It can be hard to spot as there is no ostentatious sign outside advertising it's existence. But, it's more fun than the overly hyped Ruby Skye, which is right next door. 4 stars!

If you are into the Hollywood scene, this place is cool to check out. There are 2 levels, I preferred downstairs. Upstairs definitely is more club like and spun house/techno music. Dowstairs was more loungey and the music was better. Cool decor. Ample bars upstairs and dowstairs. We had no problem getting in but that is probably because we had someone get us on a list well in advance and with 5 ladies don't think it would have been an issue either way. Although when I saw some other the other people that got in, it was clear to me that they didn't seem too picky as to what type of people they let in. I thought it was suppose to be more classy/upscale...oh wait, they let Speidi in all the time, LOL!!! Anyhow, cool place but let's see how long it lasts before the next Hollywood hot spot one ups H Wood.

Here is a memo: I AM NOT ALLOWED TO DRINK TEQUILA IT TURNS ME INTO A FUCKING MONSTER. That being said, each and every time I end up at Velvet Margarita I end up drinking tequila and I wish I could tell you what the fuck sort of shit I end up doing, but that reality only exists within the confines of a sketchy Mexican themed bar that looks like John Waters vomited campy all over the walls. Needless to say, it's usually a pretty good time.
