My neighbors and I from TWELVE Centennial Park next door walked on over this evening and had a few drinks at the main bar, dubbed "The Living Room," on the first floor, which is currently the only one out of a total of 5 open. As can be expected from any W, the place was very posh. When you enter via the main entrance, the glass double-doors swing open automatically for you. I was expecting to pull open the doors manually, so it made for a cool first impression on me. But be careful not to get hit in the face by those doors, which was what happened to one of my fellow TWELVE residents! The drinks from the bar menu, which includes light fare, are a bit pricey, but interesting. I had the "Absinthe-Minded", which as the name implies is an absinthe-based concoction and quite strong, served in a champagne flute. Bless the waitress, wearing a short tight black dress, for serving the 20 - 30 of us TWELVE residents. She handled our orders quite well. As for the other patrons, the place was not crowded so they were scattered among the very expansive couches. We'll have to see how crowded it'll be this weekend. One caveat: This W is not nearly as large as the W Midtown, so the setting will be intimate.

Great place - thought I only come here about 2 times a month, usually for one of their Soul, Mod or Funk nights. Two rooms allow for different party vibes. Lately this place has been getting packed for Emerald City Soul club - line out the door - so less intimate than used to be. I guess the cat's out of the bag. Everyone who works here is real friendly.

have attended a few events here (never salsa related) and have wound up exhausted from dancing and boozing every time. love the indoor/outdoor dance options and patio seating to cool off. crowd varies from stunning to euro trash to "ewww please leave me alone" and everything in between. one of my fav sunday afternoon- monday am dance-it-out spots.
