Wow.... Talk about rip off – Ok. So, this is seriously the most pretentious, overpriced club I have EVER been to in my life. Unbelievable! Ive been to "The office" by the request of a couple friends of mine 2 times now in the past month and OH MY GOD talk about HORRIBLE.
I went to use the bathroom and someone had "#2ed" all over 3 of the toilets and even after 3 hours of sitting in the club holding it in as long as I could, no one had cleaned it up. Not to mention the awful, mean, pretentious staff!! The bartenders and staff have the worst attitude Ive ever seen!
The drinks are SOOO expensive, the people that go there are rude and snobby, and the music is WAAAY out dated. When I went just 3 weeks ago, they were still bumpin, "Mo money, Mo problems"!!! Talk about LAME!! Plus, for some reason the owner of the club came up to me and a couple of my girlfriends and suggested we start "mingling" with other men more. Are you kidding!!?? Also, on our way out, the door man gave us problems because according to him, "he usually makes $20 tips each time he opens the door"!! I was in shock at how unbelievably unprofessional the staff was and the insane requests they had for the guests. I will NEVER go back to the office and I wouldnt suggest it for anyone.
WORST NIGHTCLUB IN RALEIGH – I went to "The Office" last weekend and had the worst time ever since Ive lived here. The drinks are WAAAY overpriced, watered down, weak, and everyone that works there has the worst attitude Ive ever encountered. Talk about SNOODY!!
Plus, the crowd is a big "sausage party" and the owner walks around the club giving all the men a hard time if the women their with dont dance with other men besides their dates.
AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. I would NEVER recommend this club to ANYONE! STAY AWAY!
Best Club in the triangle! – I recently visited The Office nightclub after not being there in a while. To my suprise, the entire club was redone. There is an all new vip area with couches and a bar right in the middle. The atmosphere is very friendly and the people that go there are fun to be around. The club is very upscale and the interior is gorgeous! If you havent been to the office lately I highly suggest checking out the new additions and remodeling! The weekends there are alot of fun, its always packed and the music is awesome.
Empty on Saturday?!?! – So some friends and I decide to venture over to The Office a few weeks ago on a Saturday night (we heard some great reviews from other people and online). We pay our $10 cover and head in a little after midnight only to find about 25 other people in the entire place (practically empty). We left, completely disappointed, at 1am after having an overpriced drink (about 15 more people wandered in during the 45 minutes...definitely not enough to keep us around). We decided our time would be best spent anywhere else (Ess, White Collar Crime, Hi5)!
less than 50 people in this huge space at 1am on the weekend?!?!...that's the type of lame crowd I'd expect at 9 or 10pm...not 1am!
Apparently Friday nights are better...but after this experience, there's no way I'll ever try The Office again.
Way to crowded and over-priced! – WOW. My first time at The Office was for sure an experience. If you like crowdedness, come here! Ive never seen so many people try to fit into one room.. There was no room to dance, my fiance kept trying to move me around because he said his rear end kept rubbing on people.. Dont they have a max capacity? Another pointer, if you are planning on drinking, make sure you get drunk BEFORE the club. I dont know about you but I dont fancy paying $17.00 for a double shot of crown!! The bartenders were rude to my fiance when he made a comment about the price of the drink. There were also fights which made me angry, a few guys that danced with my girlfriend FOLLOWED us all around the club, one even followed us to the door as we were leaving... beware. Other than that the music is decent, although I wish they would turn the volume up, I could hear my fiance perfectly.
Posh nightspot for the see and be seen heats things up with funky interior and a DJ spinning groovy beats. – In Short
This upscale spot caters to everyone from scenesters to college kids looking for something swanky. Chic and modern, the interior is different than its plain warehouse exterior--sunken Japanese fire pits, a color-changing bubbling fountain and a secluded VIP section are what help set it apart from other clubs in town. The massive main dance floor bumps with hip-hop and Top 40 hits, while the smaller dance floor and lounge area pulsates with techno music.
You just never know.... – I've been here many times..... sometimes, I have a great time; others, I am completely frustrated. There are several times when I take long breaks from the office and not go there for months and months. Usually when I return it seems to get better. In the past, one of the frustrations I've had is the overabundance of guys just STANDING on the dance floor. Either dance or go sit down or stand on the edges of the dance floor. The biggest peeve I still have about this place is the outrageous cover charge to get in. The drinks are overpiced enough as it is. Usually it's a pretty good time and not very pretentious.... you get the vibe that people are just trying to have a good time instead of trying to prove something.
I would like to recommend to the club to have more events... there have been times where beer promos, fitness club promos and other club events are going on.... it makes me feel better about paying that cover charge to know that you might score something for free when you get inside. Just a suggestion. :)
I met my future wife here! – I met the woman that I am now marrying at this place! we almost didn't get in because of the silly members only rule, but a guy was nice enough to sign us in. I met my future wife there with her friends. It just might be the right place for someone who is looking for their future husband/wife :)
bouncers think they are more than their low rent – Most prententious club I have ever seen. I have been to great clubs from Toronto to LA to Barcelona and I have never been as dismayed by the iditocracy of the staff that the office. There is no need to pretend that you are a great club -- just let it happen! Unfortunately, this is not the case -- the bouncers feel they have to 'bounce' when there is nothing to step to. You have lost my interest -- I can't wait until you are replaced with a bar/club that actually respects its patrons.
In A Nutshell – It's a bunch of pop culture obesessed yuppies preoccupied with looking good instead carrying on a conversation past the latest episode of The Apprentice. It's garbage.
