This club doesn't close till 8am! I went with a few friends to see Sander Kleinenberg on a Saturday night. I got dupe into paying $15 for parking with the big $5 sign and not being able to see the small letters "for the first 15-30 minutes?" Anyway, we waited 5 minutes to get in. There was a separate "will call" line and our "will call" tickets were approved. We didn't get pat down or told to empty our pockets. Walking inside, I was quite confused on where to go but the bouncers were very nice at directing us. There are 3 stages, 1 big stage featuring the main DJ, a small room where local DJs played, and another small room where prerecorded music was being played. The main stage is pretty big, dance floor alone could fit about 1000+ people. There's 5 projection screens and a really nice laser show. But we didn't see any lasers towards the end, so we were disappointed by that. Also the sound system is great only if you are on the dance floor. There's an upper deck for people that want to relax, but the sound isn't too good there. The small room was playing better music than Sander's set, even though they were both playing House music. The music he played was good but the flow just didn't work for me. The crowd is pretty cool and approachable, something that I can't do with the club scene in Hawaii. I met some interesting people of all ages. There's all kinds of people doing drugs, not doing drugs, drinking alcohol, drinking water, drinking Gatorade, doing nothing, hot chicks, not so hot chicks, old dudes, old ladies, and one person dancing really hard in the third room with the prerecorded music. They don't utilized the stamping system, so once you leave you have to pay to get back in. You can't smoke indoors but there's a smoking section outside and in the prerecorded room. For some reason, someone is always smoking cannabis in the smoking area. I think I would love it if this club played trance. I'm not sure if light shows were allowed, but no one seemed to care.

I showed up to Bruno's with a threadless t-shirt, a pretty sloppy hoodie and some old jeans and ... they let me through. With NO problem. No raised eyebrows, no waving in other cooler, hipper, better dressed people through the line before me. Just checked my ID and let me in. Score. The music inside ranged from old school hip-hop to a few random things that I had no idea how to dance to - but overall, pretty good choices. I only stayed on the bottom floor and didn't get to see the crazy stripper poles, and word of advice: it gets hot. As most clubs do. The drinks weren't outrageously priced ($6 for a gin and tonic) which was another plus. Sure, not the most swank-ified place in the city. But hey, I'd go again to just have a easy fun night, especially because of the lack of uppity snobbishness of other places.

If you have to go to a club with guys they better be worth the bottle service you have to buy to get in. The hostess was chill and our watiress was pretty down with the booze fest that went on at our booth. The music was insane and the dj even had a shot of tequila with me! I nearly fell on my ass though getting down to the dance floor which for some reason had one big ass step going all around it. Dope ass place.
