Here's what annoys me about the compound: 1) Before midnight, it appears to be a chick fest, but I guess that could be because ladies are free until midnight (on saturdays at least)...but still it's kind of annoying when you get to a club and you're totally surrounded by oher gorgeous, scantily clad ladies. I'm not hating but...let's just say that for men, it'd be liking shooting fish in a barrel. Oh and 2) wtf is going on with the music? If you've never gone to compund before, know that it's an indoor/outdoor club. I believe a couple of the different rooms are supposed to have different playlists, but me and my friends became increasingly annoyed a hearing the same songs 3,4, sometimes 5 times when we migrated to one of the different areas. 3) Smoking is allowed...I hate the smell of ciggies on my clothes, skin, hair...just yuck. Whoo! that said, here's what I do like: 1) sexy atmosphere and indoor/outdoor setting (despite the music, I do like being able to experience different areas of the club and I suppose it's unique in that aspect); 2) plenty of seating, which is good because wearing 5" heels....hurts 3) the music really DOES get better into the night. I've been there a couple of times and I go weak pours...which I don't care for. Weaksauce!

We have walked past Mamajuana a few million times -- we see the crowds sitting outside on weekends, and sometimes we even hear Mamajuana's music. But today, we finally got our acts together and had dinner at Mamajuana. We were definitely on the early side for Mamajuana- we got there around 7p and things were more quiet than festive (there were about six tables filled when we arrived). But the music was on the loud side - and very good - and the room's funky ambience (flowering cacti and orchids, lots of candles) made the place feel fun. It seems like the kind of place where you should meet a group of friends for some drinks and empanadas- after about thirty minutes, you'll find that everything is just really, really fun. It's the kind of place that feels festive and funky and interesting and cool. We started with the calamari which was served with salad (a mix of arugula and watercress) with a citrus dressing -- I fell in love with the salad. I loved the combination of the fresh greens, the tart dressing, and the crispy calamari. For the main course, I had the pechuga de pollo (chicken breast stuffed with jam and manchego, served with spinach). I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the combination of jam, cheese, and chicken, but it won me over - the chicken was served in thin, long slices, making visible the layers of cheese, spinach, and jam, and the chicken itself was cooked to perfection. My parents both had the tilapia (and raved about it though neither seemed crazy about the cheesy rice served with the fish), and my husband had the delicious (and oversized) churrasco frites (grilled skirt steak served with garlic fries). We had flan for dessert (we wanted the "hot chocolate cake." To be honest, I'm not even sure what a hot chocolate cake is, but it sounded too good to pass on. Unfortunately, they didn't have it yet). The flan was good enough, not extraordinary, but satisfied our sweet cravings. The only downside to Mamajuana- we had two moments where they just didn't have what we wanted: the dessert mishap (mentioned above) and they didn't actually have all of the beers that they list on their menu. But we quickly forgave them -- our waitress (Roxana) was so sweet and funny, and the dim funky room had a fun feel that was just contagious. Before I knew it, our conversation was getting louder and more boisterous, and we were just having a great time.

I would have to disagree with the last post. Although the bartenders where adequate, the drinks where way over priced & so where the dances. $35 for a very UN private, UN professional dance, that you’re lucky if a bouncer doesn’t interrupt.
But the main issue with this low rate excuse for a gentlemen’s club is just that.
They have a staff full of hot head bouncers, big mouth managers, & they are all very unprofessional. They haven’t a clue how to take care of their patrons, let alone poor the Patrón.
I have been in clubs from Vegas, Reno, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Colorado, Texas, Washington, New York, Florida, just to name a few. I’ve been in hundreds of gentlemen’s clubs, strip clubs, topless bars, and clubs. I have seen the backwoods operations to the high dollar escorts. I’ve promoted several competitions, and have hired dancers for my own Music Recording Company. I have NEVER been treated so poorly by an establishment’s staff. They clearly have inexperienced staff, and have no idea how to run a Gentlemen’s Club. So Gentlemen don’t go here if you want to waist your money, be treated like the customer doesn’t matter, and have the worst experience at a club ever.
Stay in Spokane or Stateline Guys.
I want to stay anonymous at this time; but I will be posting my complete review and more detail of my experience at The Torch Lounge. You may see the post at one or more of the following.

Along with several other columns I post on a regular basis. It’s sad to say this was my worst experience at a Gentlemen’s Club Ever!
