Do I feel slightly better than you for being ever so terribly in the know and in the now, having a VIP pass to see Major Lazer (which is a sort of communal collective of musical artists -- it's a kind of high-tech, futuristic, riotous Jamaican "dancehall" / Brazilian "baile funk" vibe) featuring legendary uber-producers Diplo and Switch (my favorite DJ) with special guest vocalist Santigold (that's how she spells her name now) and funny-man Andy Milonakis on their international tour promoting the forthcoming album "Guns Don't Kill People...Lazers Do" ... Maybe just a little!

lol I love the fact that I made my way half way down the reviews to see that everyone is pretty much on the same page about this place. The renovations are beautiful, I like the different rooms they have; salsa, house, top 40, although i'd like to hear something I wouldn't hear on a daily basis on my local radio station but......here we go.!! lol First and foremost, give the pretty exotic young lady who worked the VIP line/ list a raise! We were only a small part of a larger party that had VIP reservations but some how lines got crossed somewhere and there was a bit of confusion at the door. She handled it excellently. She was extremely and seemed genuinely polite! That's very rare in this industry....well maybe not rare, but the fakeness of it all shines through so they don't pull the "trying to be polite act" off very well at all. Needless to say we did not gain VIP entrance, but that's ok. Just in case something like that happened I signed up my friends and I to gain free access through the regular line. ******WARNING****** $10 a piece is not much and is techinically the usual for entry into a club, BUT if you are going to say free entry ends at 11:30 then you need to keep your word. We reached the door at 11:15 and informed them we were on a list. The bouncer said "Yeah, everybody keeps saying the list ends at 11:30 but you must be wrong because the lists close at 11" I guess they figure if you've stood in the line this long you aren't going to turn back now. I honestly would have because I wasn't pleased with the attitude but we were there for a birthday party and I hadn't seen the new renovations so we paid the cover and went inside. Although right after we paid the bouncer announced the cover was going up to $20. $20??? before 11:30pm. Not worth it at all. So I don't make this too long i'll say I would probably never go here again and I wouldn't recommend it. The staff is ehhhh besides the polite VIP girl, the drinks are $10 a piece min., the cover charge is ridiculous and apparently they don't abide by their 11;30 cut off time for free access, and although the club is beautiful the vibe is blahhh and i've been to and seen better places.
