WTF! I can't believe that I haven't written a review about this place. I only go here 2 to 3 times a week. I actually consider this place one of debauchery. It's where my friends go to get drunk and become sluts! The entertainment value watching my friends make out with strangers and cheat on their boyfriends is priceless. What can I say I'm a sucker for drama. I, personally, haven't had any of these slutty experiences, but who needs them when you can live vicariously through your friends. The layout of this place isn't necessarily the best. It's difficult to dance here and having the bar in the middle of the room really makes the place become more crowded than it really is. Speaking of the bar, my favorite bartender is Sergio!! He makes super strong drinks and the fact that he's cute makes me a little biased. I like that there is a smoking patio and you don't actually have to leave the club to go get a cigarette. Not that I smoke or anything, but it is really convenient. I also enjoy that there are theme nights. Monday is Testarossa aka 80's night and the lovely Miss Rahni performs every Monday. Friday is Radar with yummy go go dancers, and Sunday is Latino/a day. I don't remember the name of it, but just know its usually empty and boring on Sundays. I come here too much to really give a unbiased review, but I kinda love it here. Where else can you see people you HATE, people you wanna EFF, people you've BEFRIENDED, and people you wanna HIDE from all at the same time? You can find me there every Monday.

As a disclaimer I went to underbar on once-a-month fetish night called Excess, the DJ's spinning are brought in by the guy who runs the night who is not employed by the club, so I will not be touching on the music. Atmosphere-wise the club is nice and not a shit-hole, the problem really comes in when you want to have a drink. The bartenders are the worst I have ever come across (I have a number of friends who are bartenders and I myself am in the process of getting certified). I originally attempted to order a gin martini, the response I got was "We don't have any Martini Glasses - do you want it on the rocks?". They had no martini glasses - in fact no glasses at all so it was down to plastic cups. Declining the blasphemy that is somehow a "martini on the rocks" (which thus is not a martini) I decided to order something simpler, a Toasted Almond - the bar tender had no idea what it was so I told him 1pt kahlua, 1 pt amaretto, 1 pt cream/milk, somehow this translated to adding absolut vodka, kahlua and milk - and ended up tasting rather off. I drank it in spite anyway and asked for a Tom Collins next which was then so far off I was not sure what he even gave me - I politely told him the drink was off, his response was "Tom Collins - gin vodka and tonic water - it's right". To anyone who knows shit about bartending/how a drink is made this is not even close to right. I'll leave anyone who is curious to go look up how these drinks are supposed to be made elsewhere - however the point as a whole remains that the bartenders who are working have no clue how to make about anything, my experience I found out later on was not unique and outside of very basic drinks on the rocks or rum and cokes the answer most patrons received to their drink orders were "how is that made?" or "sorry I can't do that". Perhaps the most derranged part of the entire experience is that the drink prices on normal nights are $11-15 because it's int he middle of the theater district. To wrap it up, if you want to actually go out and have alcohol be a part of your night in any way... go elsewhere!
