Went here last night for the first time to check out Ron Carroll (who was so badass that i'm still on a happy, although tired, vibe). It was a little smaller than I thought it was going to be but that just made it more feel more personal. The bartenders were quick with the drinks and friendly. The crowd was diverse and, with the exception of a couple people that were bumping into people left and right, were pretty chill and everyone seemed to just be having fun. One of my most hated things about going to clubs is the bathrooms but theirs were pretty clean and had toilet paper and paper towels (three things that going to 1015 afterwards were SORELY lacking). And as mentioned before, the metal toilets could be a shock to the system.

Okay, I know, I'm strange and like the rouge. It's possible that the times I've gone have been good nights, or I'm biased as this was the neighborhood club a few blocks from a best girlfriend. That being said, I've always had fun at rouge. 1.) The native species is always entertaining. Who doesn't think it's fun to get up on the bar and out booty shake the chicas in the skanky outfits. Seriously, it's blonde waspy me getting the tequila shots, and the high fives from the sistas when I've thrown a few back and do the booty clap. (Yes I'm pretty sure that's the phrase she used). 2.) No one cares. This is not a judgmental place. This is not marinaland, but skankville, and sometimes it's just being well rounded to get out and be tacky. And, yes the men are creepy, but this is an out with the girls kind of club. So have fun people! Sheesh! 3.) People complain about the DJs. I have never not been able to request something, or better yet have security request something. 4.) Security is usually so happy (or shocked) not to be harassed by skanks that they will hold your hand to help you step down off the bar. Then they'll buy you a drink. (Yes, I know, sketchy, but that's what your gfs are there for). 5.) Very Very close proximity to my friends apartment. (This is wonderful when your feet hurt at the end of the night). 6.) Okay, so maybe not everyone needs to let out the inner skank on a bar every now and then, but rather like the college slut phase, it must happen eventually. Better to do it here where the men are so unappealing you are guaranteed not to go home with anyone. You'll just end up a little hungover, with pictures of you dancing on the bar. It's the girl next to you in the picture, that regular of rouge, that needs to worry.
