D-Bag Paradise – I went here for a co-workers birthday. I knew from the start it really wouldn't be my scene... I just didn't figure it to be so horrible.
It's like walking into a cross between the Jersey Shore and a 50 cent video.
Drinks are ridiculously expensive.
I could see how if you were a d-bag then you'd probably find this place pretty cool. So check it out if you are... avoid it you're not.
Denim = Boucers Assualting you – I used to really like this club about 4-5 years ago but in the last couple of years it has REALLY gone downhill. I think they had a change in ownership and it appears that the new owner and his thug bouncers really enjoy assualting; beating up and harassing anyone they feel like. I have heard several people say the same thing about this place.
Once you are inside the club they can and will throw you out for absolutely no reason at all. They usually make up fake reasons. The worst part is that they do this in an extremely ruthless manner. Not only do they throw you out but the bouncers also gang up on you and beat you up. I have seen this happen in front of my own eyes on a couple of instances. I totally agree that a club has the right to throw out anyone they feel is too drunk and that is totally fine. However, there is no reason to also beat that person up ruthlessly in front of everyone. Just let him/her go.
I don't know how they are able to get away with this without anyone bringing charges against them. I guess most of these victims were too drunk to remember much and therefore couldn't really do anything the next day. This place needs to be shut down and the owner and his thugs need to go to jail. So, please stay away from this place if you care for your life and health. Center city has many other places that actually respect and take care of their customers.
Above all: Horrible Staff – If my experience means anything, even the most unassuming, tasteful patron will have a horrible experience at denim. A manager there threw my boyfriend out literally 5 minutes after paying cover for wearing a baseball hat, claiming he'd given him [my boyfriend] 'ten warnings' as he threw us out the door. A bartender even agreed that there was something wrong with the manager in the tone he took with us. He was a small man in an ill fitting suit, but I don't want to attribute it to his Napoleon complex. Rather, I hope he was having a bad night. I hope he doesn't randomly eject you too in the middle of a good night! Good luck. :o(
HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE.....I WAS LEFT TO DIE – DENIM!!! All I have to say is that this place is HORRIBLE!! All the way down to the people who attend, the owners, the bouncers....the cops....everyone is a Sc*m bag there. I was assaulted there and left to die on the dance floor. I went to Denim one night with my boyfriend....it was around 1:30 am we were walking out....when all of a sudden...one of the owners walk in with his gf and start pushing everyone out of their way IN THE CROWD UPSTAIRS. The owner pushes me back....for no reason. He thinks just because he owns a place he can treat people like dirt. So he pushes me back and my bf comes to my rescue and they kick him out for no reason. The bouncers threaten him and say we can either do this the easy way or hard way. They take him out and leave me up there....as I am walking out the psycho bimbo ugly gf grabs my neck and pursues to choke me. She caught me off guard. The owner and her start laughing in my face and say ur gunna die b***h ur gunna f****ing die. I go in and out of consciousness fighting for my last breath. As she lets go for a quick sec she continues to assault me. No one comes to my rescue...no vigilante...no bouncer...no owner no one. everyone watches and eggs the ugly b***h on. She continues to attack my head pull my hair....as I am trying to get away from tall ugly girl... she knocks me to the ground....and other guys and girls in the club join in and continue to assault me. I was knocked out..... going in and out of consciousness when I wake up to guys and girls kicking me on the floor. I scream for help and I am just left there. Finally the f*****g bouncers take the girl off me.... leave me on the dance floor lifeless...while people continue to dance. People literally were kicking me with their leg to see if I was alive or dead. Finally a girl who steps up screams someone help her do somtin....a big guy puts me to my feet as I walk out screaming and telling the whole club that I am calling the police. Everyone in the club who is there looks scared...thinking that the cops are coming... To make a long story short coincidentally the cops were parked right outside the club. I go up to their car with my bf who i reunited with outside..... i tell the cops what happened to me...and they dont give a s**t. They refused to go back in the club with me so i could point out who the b***H and pompous A** were. I told them it was the owner and his gf.....and they said it was prob some drunk guy who said he was the owner, I told the cops the girl made it clear to say that her bf was the owner....thats how I knew who he was. To make this even shorter....the cops did nothing....they are all bad. I find out later the club pays the cops to sit there....(off duty cops) to make sure no probs occur. They are all tied together in bad s**t u know what i mean. I did my research and the guy who I thought was the owner was one of the owners indeed. UGLY MF! He thinks he can get away with this s**t. He's not to smart to have his picture posted all over the internet. if he reads this your an IDIOT!!! In the end I wa taken to the hospital had contusins on my head...bruises all over my body...puffy face...It was bad!!! I DONT RECOMMENd ANYONE TO GO TO THIS CLUB. I DONT EVEN KNOW WHY IT IS STILL OPERATING. THIS IS THE worse CLUB THERE IS. IF YOU WANT YOUR GIRLFRIEND,SISTER,MOTHER...ANYONE you love or care about TO GET ASSAULTED THAN DEFF DONT GO TO DENIM...IF YOU WANT TO GET ATTACKED OR DIE GO THERE!!! I HOPE PEOPLE TAKE THIS SERIOUS FOR THEIR OWN PROTECTION.... AND I HOPE DENIM ROTS IN HELL!!!!! AS YOU CAN SEE I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO HAD BAD EXPERIENCES THERE....READ ALL THE OTHER BAD REVIEWS...I HOPE EVERYONE TAKES ACTION AGAINst THESE PSYCH PATHS!!!
All or Nothing – I have been to Denim on several occasions. Some nights are great and others I am falling asleep on my feet. It is a great time or you leave and go elsewhere in an hour. The drinks are on the more expensive side, so I would recommend drinking elsewhere first. The decor is great, and it has recently been remodeled. The last time I went, (late October) was phenomenal
Great Saturday Night!!! – Had a great time last Saturday night!! There's a new hot VIP lounge in the front that looks over the dance floor. The music was great and the bartenders were fast and friendly. Going again next week to get the bottle service for a birthday, can't wait!!!
Denim is the place to be! – I had a great time last saturday night. The music was great, the bartenders and waitstaff are extremely hot and the service is top notch. Get there early because it does get crowded after midnight.
HOTTEST NIGHTCLUB IN PHILLY!!!! – As soon as you show up to the front door, you know this is different from any other nightclub. Handsome bouncers greet you with a smile and "IDs please". After riding in the denim covered elevator to the main floor, you immediately walk out onto the dance floor, which may be a little small, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for with the energy of the people out there. 4 bars through out the club, all loaded with top-shelf liquors, beer, and "generous" bartenders... who aren't to hard on the eyes, either. If you do have the extra cash to spend they also have the option of table service. 6 different color themed areas of the club have exclusive seating for you and your party to enjoy bottles of liquor or champagne brought to you by gorgeous girls. As soon as your sat, you're greeted by the sever, brought a bucket of ice, fruit, straws, and any type of mixer you would like... it can be pricey, but it's worth EVERY PENNY!!!!!
All in all, a great club!!! Every weekend brings a different party, which means different people, different music, different EVERYTHING!!! EVERY week!! I will definitely be going back and will, for sure, recommend this place to everyone!!
Beautiful Club, Phoney people. – the club is a beautiful work of art, very well designed; put together. I gave this club a rating of 2 because people in the club are phoney. People whom are in this club think they are high class, just because they are in the club. It makes me laugh. If you are of high net worth, try to avoid this club, due to the phoneys. it will truly ruin your experience of a great place. Bottle girl was pretty hott, just a little padded around the waist, thighs. overall, club is an a+++ for design and style, but a f- for exclusivity.
Definitly Worth a Few Extra Bucks – If you have a few extra dollars to spend I would definitly recommend using the bottle service. Staff will respond to your needs in a quick and friendly manner. VIP sections are located in high traffic areas so you will get the exclusive feel, without being isolated.
I could go on and on, but I'll just say that my friends from Manhattan love this place.
