They Need 2 Check- Them- Selves – I was invited 2 a bday party @ Palmr's n I haven't been there n maybe 10 yrs, n it's 4 good reason. With my fisrt encounter with the first staff member, she took my id 2 check 4 my age. Win she seen that i was 30... She laughed n said I hope u have fun! Ok I no i"m older than the usual crowd, but don't make me feel some type is way 4 wantin 2 party. The second person was the women that checked pocketbooks and bodies 4 weapons. She checked my purse, every part from top 2 bottom. I thought I was visiting someboby n jail! She than started 2 pat me down n felt my bra n asked what was n it n I said padding n she made a noise like ahmmmm. I than asked her y did she make a comment @ all. She then waited til I went up the steps n sayed I'd KNOCK THE MESS OUT OF HER!!. At that point I just went up the stairs, so I could get a drink. The music was Great, but by the last half n hour there, the bartender came over 2 me n asked it she could have my stool, while I was sittin n it!! I reminded her that I was using it, she looked @ me n said, I work her n I need it 2 sit down. At that point I looked @ her n said ur RUDE AS Heck n take the stool so u can sit down 4get the guest.. I left, I'm not going 2 let people treat me n that manner!!!

HOT HOT HOT – I am new to the Philly club scene, but this place is ok. BUT, you must be able to stand the heat. It will fog your glasses in there.
The music is descent. Wish there were different styles on the different floors, but...The crowd is beautiful. Hot men, georgous women. Young, mature. Thick and thin. All races. Some grimey, some classy. ou chose who you wanna be! Drink specials are good, but if you get the wrong bartender you will be drinking sour mix. The men will do ANYTHING you let them so be on the watch for that! (but that goes for anywhere)
I agree with many of the other posters.
Women get in early and stand around and hold up the walls until the boys show up. (so boys come early for best selection with the least competition. There are plenty of bars so you dont have to wait long for a drink (a good thing) DRINK LOTS OF WATER IT GETS HELLACIOUSLY HOT! No where to sit, other than some old nasty couches in the lounges (they really grossed me out) Lots of people standing around staring around the room. Although there isnt that much room to dance for all of the people in there, and no where for them to sit either. No dress code that I could tell, lots of security, but not too pushy. Decent place, can't wait to check out some of Philly's other hot spots.
hottest place to be on saturday night (seriously)!!! – well if you can get over the fact that this place is like 600 degrees but like 1am, you can have a great time. i had a blast. its all hip hop, and hosted by 100.3 the beat philly. the dj is live, and it was ballin for real. my friends went out for their 23rd birthdays(and my 21st) and i did the damn thang. my only thing is that if i would have known it was more of a dance club, i would have worn something a little more, well, less!!! fun fun fun. oh they also stay open until 330 so get in where you fit it. i think its free before 12 but i got there at 1100 anyway. all i can say is if this is your scene, like it is mine, party like a rock star.
GREAT MUSIC, COOL PARTY!!! – Last night was my first night at Palmers. I enjoyed myself. This is a after hours club. The doors open at 11:00 p.m. And ladies are FREE until 11:30!!! They have 3 floors and 6 rooms to dance in. The music was great, the place was packed and the drinks were sweet! Also all of the workers were very nice. The saying that Palmers is a "sweat box" is sooooooooooo true! Once the crowd is in the place, it gets very humid and floors get wet. Also the bathroom are very small. Those were my only 2 problems.
a good after spot – If you don't have anything to do or go on a friday night then this is the place to be. There are three floors so you get more of a selection of music as well as more breathing space. There are also enough bars inside so that you can order your drink. They normally have drink specials until 12, which are pretty descent.
Enter at your own risk – it's an alright club, if you like the house party scene. your gauranteed to dance with someone, It has three floors, the first floor " DEAD" , the second floor to darn crowded, you can hardly make it from one side of the room to the other, it's so hot you can't breathe if you have asthma this is not the place for you, oh and the drinks are NASTY and OVER PRICED, and the third floor GOOD LUCK getting up there 'but when you do buy yourself a bottle of SPRING WATER, your going to need it in HELL, it is way to freakin' hot , big girls if your out there you want to shed some pounds the third floor at this club is for you honey you will sweat away at least 15lbs. after one song that's how hot it is in there, but if you like being hot you don't mind not being able to move then GO PARTY BABY!
Great if you get in free and don't drink much – This club features much too expensive watered down drinks, poor customer service and the same old songs you hear on the radio all week long plus some old stuff you heard on the radio all week long a few years ago. Mostly the crowd is filled with people looking around to see who else is there looking around. There are some dancers - whew! But if you don't get in before midnight ladies, and have to pay the $15 it is definitely not worth that. You will also be harrassed by security at the door and forced to throw away ink pens and many types of hairstyling combs (even plastic ones) or anything else they can say you might creatively be able to use as a weapon. The first floor is a wash and is just some mostly empty lounge area. The second floor is where everyone is most of the time until late and the third floor starts filling up. Both floors play the same music as each other at alternating times (think 100.3 and Power 99 - you flick away to avoid hearing a song you don't like on one channel, only to hear it played right after the song playing on the other channel). There are way too many females in here on any given night so much time is spent waiting on men to arrive unless you like dancing with your female friends (and hopefully have some to dance with!) Overall, I say if you can find something else to do - go for it, but if not, make it in while it's still free.
