pros: sometimes, salsa dancing; a/c decent in the domain (if you like the domain) looks nice patio thing with heaters if you should need them strong alcoholic beverages many decently dressed folk also, food cons: sometimes, salsa dancing on a sticky floor - if gloria's really wanted to promote dancing here, they should have built a real dance floor, and tell patrons 'no, you can't dance on the floor with a drink in your hand, because you will eventually spill it and make the floor gross. Sure, we wipe it up nooow, but either not all that well, or we chose a really stupid material to make our dance floor out of' ; a/c tolerable in the domain (if you hate the domain) expensive, cause they can charge more (since they're, you know. In the Domain. Potential $10 cover, and if you let your glasses of water get taken away after some unknown amount of time because you wandered from your table to either dance or use the restroom, they will make you pay for bottled water) patio should, more importantly, have misters. It's a brand new restaurant in Austin. HellO! also, food

Steampunk interior design is amazing. This is definitely one of my favorite bars on the East Side now. The current exhibit by Lszek Zebrowski adds to the atmosphere as well. This is one of the few bars that offers Buffalo Trace (my favorite (Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey) - so I fell in love with that as well. The bartenders are supposed "mixologists" and the Flamboise Flip (only drink with Buffalo Trace) wasn't bad. The only negative thing with this bar is that every drink requires a lot of work and effort to create - this is great for the final recipient. However, for the people who are waiting to order or waiting for their drinks to come then they may have to wait awhile.

I'd probably give it a couple of stars if the door guys weren't such dicks. My friends took me here this weekend for my bachelorette party. It was a large (more than 20 people) group with all women and one guy. The guy, my man-of -honor, dropped us off and went to go park the car. The door guys wanted to let us in right away. Well, we asked about our "male" friend and they said they would let him in right away to join us when he got there. Well, they totally didn't do that. He showed up with one of our other friends who got there a little late and they would not let them in. I went to the door and and tried to talk to the guy who had promised us. The guy got a major attitude with me. Finally, when I was about to go round everyone up to leave because that was just not cool, they let them in. Dude, I understand that they don't like to let guys in here, the the ratio here is pretty ridiculous. I went to an all women's college and I felt like I was back in school. My new sister in law was with us and she was also noticing that the only few guys there were pretty old and short too. So, if you like to dance with a bunch of chicks and a few skeevy old guys, Harlot is your place. The decor is ok and the dance floor not too crowded. It really wasn't anything special though. I had a great time because I was there with my friends,l but this is really isn't my scene. I like to get my groove on, I just don't want it with a side of attitude and pretension. This place's 15 minutes will be up pretty soon.
