don't knock it before you try it – ok so it depends on who you are to go there. first off, each night is diffrent i have gone many times it depends on what music you enjoy 80's go wednesday and thursday friday and saturday little techno little rock so try diffrent nights diffrent people go diffrent nights. the staff they don't get paid to be nice to you they get paid to make sure you don't get hurt or someone gets out of controle! fetishball night is the last saturday of every month you get scared easy then don't go! they do have fun stuff PIRATE parties and more and go with people you feel comfortabl with it makes a huge diffrence. SO DON'T KNOCK IT BEFORE YOU TRY IT!

Ok so at First when you walk in at 9 its more gothic. But then you just gotta have a good attitude about it bring lots of friends and at 10 11 it starts to be more Gernerational music, the people who are giving bad reviews must not have friends because i am a girl went up with 2 other girls and 4 guys. JUST ALL FRIENDS! We had a blast and plan on going today and this sat. So I think it was great. Love the outdoor and indoor smoking. Staff could lighten up. thats all.

This place is not a good time – So me and a few friends were bored on a saturday night so we went to Area 51 on thier "F3tish Night" that they hold. First off, there was like no one there and we arrived at 11, service sucked, building looked like it was ready to fall down.

The music sucked hardcore style. I swear the DJ went in the booth and set the genre to "Eurotrash" or something. It bugged me that I paid to get in. You HAVE to be like, drunk or something to really have a good time there. Overall, Area 51 is not a classy club and it definitly SHOWS!

Awesome adult drinks – The drinks are AWESOME! The staff of bartenders are friendly and proffesional. They know what they are doing and will take good care of you as long as you take care of them. TIP!!! They always appreciate it and you will get your money's worth. Some things could use improvement. Most of the security staff is good but could be better. Just watch out for perv's, girls I think your on your own there. If you want to go out and dance and party this is a good place to go as long as you know what your getting yourself into.

Terrible Night – I used to have a lot of fun at area 51...but tonight i was harrassed. Their staff was rude and yelled at me for having drank before I showed up. (Who doesn't drink before a night of clubbing ???) I was upset but continued to the entrance, where there is usually a long line. Instead, there was NO LINE, and no one inside but a few high school kids. My friend (who is obviously over 18) was not let inside, and I reluctantly paid $5 to get in. Once inside, it was so dead, and I was so upset about being harassed that my night was already ruined. I left soon after and their staff followed me out. What I thought would be a night of fun turned out to be a nightmare. I DO NOT reccommed this place.

NO!!!!! – Don't even think about going to this place. Gothics, Scene Kids, and Young-uns. Bad Combination. Go here if you sincerly want to be a.) sacrificed b.) arrested c.) wanna let out some emo tears. Bartenders look like some bad extras out of a low budget horror film. Area 51 makes me want to hurl, nuff said

It might be different, but go ahead give it another chance – This club needs a good review, so here it goes. I am an avid goer and yes there are downfalls and there are alot of good things about this club so First of all the club has two levels a downstairs and an upstairs, as well as two bars *at least 21 and over and yes you do need a membership, and they do have temparory memberships too, you just need to ask, a membership for a whole year is only $40(common support the scene)* anyway the bars are excellent if you like drinking I recommend the holywater or vampire delight some might even recommend the grasshopper all very good and worth every penny. I have heard alot about 80s night, never went so I imagine its still a good show, my fav is every Friday, and Saturday night.

Friday offers everything from goth/industrial downstairs to upstairs with techno, new stuff and yes even rap but if you dont like that stuff stay downstairs same with saturday maybe a little bit more goth downstairs though. Wensday is a new thing it karaoke, and I love it its so much fun other then that only one section is open, upstairs. There are alot of 18s and up, however everyone respects everyone and honestly who cares if you really have relations later in the night its all about the company of people and the uniqueness of it. Sure Salt Lake may not to be the best place and thats why there is Area, to let loose and have fun, go ahead give it another try or at least another chance, it might be so scary but you may like it!
