Dont Do It! – I keep informing people that this is a " R " establishment I cant say the R word or this wont post. Why we keep taking this type of disrespect Im not sure. But the evening I went, my sisters were ripped off via credit card; we had just paid to get in and went straight to the bar; while they ordered their drinks unfortunately they gave them their credit card first; as we waited for there drinks the short one w/ the dark hair came back to them as if nothing; when they asked for their drinks he swore up and down he had already given them there drinks, as an argument started they whistled over for security as well as the police officers to come over. We tried to insist give the money back or just give us the drinks. As we were escorted out and tried to explain to the officer's the situation, of course they could care less. We kept trying to show the receipt that we hadnt even been there five minutes so how is it that he gave them there drinks a long time ago "is what he told the police". Even the "Brother who worked the door who remembered us coming in not too long ago wouldnt say a word" nor the guy taking the money @ the door. The officers just stated take it to civil court.
Two weeks later a friend of my sisters stated they were their and outside socializing amongst themselves and a group of other females were started up " those black girls aint shyt" etc.... so an argument started to pursue but no one walked up to one another they were just getting loud back and forth, explain why security came, snatched her up and man handled this 120lb girl almost slamming her to the floor, and they were kicked out, but of course the non african american girls were able to not only stay but nothing was even said to them. "WE GOT TO DO BETTER" !!!!!! Stop giving these "R's" our hard earned Scrilla!
This place needs to be shut down – I have fond memories of The Heartthrob from years and years ago, but those fond memories are just that, memories, since then it's turned into a total stink hole.
They took out all of the cute 60's decor (The beetle is no more and the black light lounge is teeny) and halved the club, so one half is retro and the other half is supposed to be a hip-hop club. They charge a cover charge at the door (It's unbelievable because the place stinks so much) and they charge 5 dollars for a weak single-shot house liquor cocktail served in a teeny tiny plastic cup. The music is horrible, and although the DJ on the retro side seems like a nice guy, he can't transition between songs very well, so it's awkward to dance to.
The club patrons are sketchy at best, and to be honest, I barely wanted to park my car there. I did not feel safe at all. Some of the people going into the Heartthrob looked like gang-bangers, and it wouldn't surprise me if they have a shooting there some night. It's THAT bad. The place has taken a turn for the worse and now it has the feel of a club that belongs in North Aurora or Commerce City (that translates to "bad club with bad people") I could only stay for 30 minutes because the place was just so bad.
I wouldn't suggest this club to anyone, not even a former club goer who wants to return for a night of nostalgia like I did. You will leave disappointed and find your pleasant memories gone.
The Heartthrob is lost.
I am never going back there again.
They ripped me off – DO NOT trust these guys with your credit card. They charged a bunch of extra money on my credit card and even made extra transactions that caused me to have over $200.00 in overdrafts. Because of them I now am locked into a struggle with my bank to remove the charges and because of lost time and money I will not be seeing my family for Christmas this year as they are out of town and now I don't have enough money to get a airline ticket. I would avoid these guys!!!! They are slimey.

Great 2 for 1's on Fridays – The Hearthrob/Catamaran a GREAT night club! I love the fact there are 2 clubs in 1, music is great & the patio is awesome. The staff is great & goes out of their way to make it a party house. The drink specials are great, love the stripper pole & I love dancin on the bar with my girls. I would & do recommend this club to any & everyone. I would rather party here then deal with the chaos downtown!
a real fun party!! – i went to the heartthrob last friday for a friends 24 b-day i was surprised that it is also now called the party house, and has 2-clubs inside. the heartthrob was playing my favorite retro dance hits and the catamaran liquor stand was playing pretty current top 40 dance music. this place is totally unpretentious and everyone was having a great time, including the very friendly staff! great dance and party club with a huge outdoor patio! everyone i'm sure will be surprised at how much fun this place is!!!
STRIPPER Poles! "Private" rooms – So my husband and I had gone once to the Heartthrob a few weeks ago for a few hours and thought it was cool because there was not too many people and still room to dance. The Drinks were great and decently priced, parking was free, it was not a far drive to get to, two dance floor with different types of music. Thats all that we found to be cool about it the first time we went but this second time we went we found that just off from the modern club music dance floor was this semi private room which you entered it through a beaded curtain and in this circular room was a stripper pole and cushioned seats all around the sides of the room. So i tried it out,, What a fun time we had!! I would highly recomend this place jsut for this!!
Tonedeaf DJ – If you want to dance, DO NOT GO HERE. If you want cheap drinks til 10, go here and then vacate at 10:01 and go somewhere worth your while. A large group of us (responsible adults) had a night out and were sorely disappointed. We did not expect a classy joint, but what we got was unexpected...a DJ that did not have clue about music. He was rude, and extremely defensive about his lack of knowledge of dance music. He refused requests and then would play utter crap and watch an empty dancefloor. Now that makes sense for a dance club...NOT! Anyway, I am not sure what he was being paid, but nothing was too much! If Hearththrob wants to stay in business, I suggest they drop the bozo in the DJ booth and get someone who has a CLUE!!
The Heartthrob is faded – Hey, if you like to dance, and you want the floor to yourself ~ go to the Heartthrob. This is the first nightclub I have ever been to that the dance floor was empty for 10 minutes and it was 10:30 on a Saturday night... No they were not cleaning the floor, but they should have cleaned out the DJ booth to put everyone who paid to get into this decrepit establishment out of their misery. I had a better time dancing at the last wedding I attended...
Don't waste your time! – My friends and I were trying to avoid going all the way downtown to go dancing somewhere, so we thought we'd try this place - big mistake! Very cheesy place... music was lame so we asked the DJ for a few requests - he basically ignored us. Crowd was interesting to say the least. I'm sorry I wasted the cover to get in... only good thing was the $2 beer and that ended at 10 anyways. Will not go again or even suggest to anyone else.
