I don't love this place. Went here on a friday night with my cousin(two girls he knew were meeting us later) and had to wait outside while the three different doorman contemplated letting us in or not. I'm of the belief that if you act like you don't give a shit if you get in or not, you'll have better luck. The two sweater wearing frat boys in front of us obviously did not comprehend this concept as they were deathly afraid of getting rejected. Once past the nazi's(doorman) we walked in and the first thing I noticed was how small this place is. Like someone previously mentioned, coat check is in a stairwell, you think you're going downstairs but really you're just checking your coat. The actual downstairs is not tremendously big with tables on the both sides of the room, a tiny bar(in the back), and a dj at the end of the room. If you're looking to dance, this is your best bet as space is quite limited upstairs. While the bar upstairs is nice and big, the space in general isn't conducive to more then talking. Try to dance and you'll find yourself bumping into everyone. Cocktails were like 10 bucks a pop and there is a 30 dollar min for cards. People call this place a speakeasy but other then the hassle of trying to get in, I didn't really get that vibe. Honestly there are much cooler and easier places to get into in and around the area. snooze

So if you get here early, they won't let you in certain parts of the dance floor. OK, not a big deal. So we get some drinks and screw around in the "techno room," trying our best hand at some moves like the roger rabbit, the running man, and then attempt a dance off. Must not have been too bad cause we gathered a crowd of creepy voyeurs on the top balcony area. This is also the point where some weirdo drunk guy came up to my friend and started blatantly rubbing/dancing on her. I couldn't help but snap a picture of my tormented friend. Once the "hip hop" room opens up we head in there. It immediately becomes crowded with people, so crowded that we are almost pushed up against the DJ booth. Also, It was a major sausage fest. The music is OK. DJ's from Kiss were there, and would only play songs they had lined up for the radio. LAME. The best part of the evening was getting my picture taken with a little old lady dancing in the hip hop room. I don't know how her family talked her into going, but she seemed to enjoy it. The bathroom was nice and close. I never had to wait to get in, however there was a bouncer posted at the end of the building right off of the girls bathroom, and the girls bathroom door is always open. I found it disturbing he could count how many trips I had taken there. My last complaint has to do with the bouncer who was out front. Towards the end of the night I had to go in and out of the club a few times to use the phone to call our ride. I then had to venture back in once the ride got there, because we were missing one of our friends. The bouncer insisted on staring at my id every time I went back in the club. I saw him let other people in without a double take, but he seriously made me dig out my id and stared at it for 10 seconds each time. The guy knew exactly who I was, he was just being an asshole. The bartenders were OK. My all around impression of the staff was that they were kind of rude. The good thing is that we all got in for free because we signed up on the online VIP list. I don't know if I'll go back anytime soon. I think I'd rather hit up Venom, even though it's not fancy, just because there's some actual dance room and guys aren't trying to hump you from every angle.
