I've been here three times now. Two times for friends' birthdays and a third for Halloween, when UCSF had an event here. The latter was the only time I actually had fun. Hence, one extra star for that one night of fun. Most of the time, this place attracts a pretty un-savory crowd. Every time I come here, there is always a throng of creepy guys standing right outside the girl's bathroom. Whenever girls walk by, they call out ludacris things and grab at them. Does this actually get them ladies? I figure it must work once in a while since they continue to maintain their post. That or they just have a lot of perseverance. Either way, it's pretty disgusting. The club itself is pretty large. I can't remember the exact lay-out, but there are two stories. A main dance floor upstairs and another one downstairs. There's also a "V.I.P" area in the center of the main dance floor, although it doesn't look very V.I.P (just a bunch of shabby curtains draped around cheap-looking couches). It can also get pretty crowded and ventilation is not very good because the distinct smell of B.O can be quite prevalent. Cover is usually $20, but if you can't make it in on guestlist, it'd be wise to spend your money elsewhere. On a better note, music is pretty good. It's a good mix of hip-hop and house. And there are quite a few bar areas, which is nice. Also, for those who like to party beyond 2am, this is one of the few places in SF that stays open later than that (although I usually can't last beyond 1am here because it's just that crappy). Besides that, there's nothing sweet about Suite 181. TL just isn't my scene. 2 stars!

cover charge... cmmoooon.... with drinks that expensive you shoudlnt need a cover. wonderful views though, but I did notice that the windows were really dirty, that should be fixed. Great live music but a weird crowd...
