Swanky decor; suburban clubbers – Surreal going to a club at a mall to find a sea of J Lo clones. Thumpity hip hop, with no depth or DJ sensitivity. We circulated between the 3 dance floors (2 in the VIP 1/2 of the space), vainly searching for decent music. The good news: Scenery-improving go-go dancers. VIP room offered tassled pillows to recline on. The door policy: They asked as we approached (4 women, NOT J Lo lookalikes) if we were on the guest list. We weren't. The manager promised to "take care of us." He did: 2/4 got in free (averaging $10/head), and we all got access to the VIP lounges. So the entrance is negotiable... If you want access to the VIP portion, bring at least one friend in a scanty dress (we did), make a dinner reservation, or tip heavily. But why? There are soooo many better clubs in town.
Misrepresented – First, the cost is $20, not $15. Second, after calling both nights and being told that the music would include plenty of R&B and funk, the music was all techno with an incredibly bad drummer playing along. The club was geared for the mid-20's crowd and the "beautiful people". While standing in line, they seem to choose who is allowed in their VIP lounge based on how you look and how you are dressed. Adults who want to dance and have fun should look elsewhere.
