Management Stinks! – I have never been treated with so much disrespect. My friends and I were there recently, the place was pretty dead but we decided to get a table anyway. Two of my friends were going somewhere else so my friend and I went to the car to get our coats. We had already been stamped for re-entry. The obese Hispanic bouncer taking the money and who had just stamped me minutes before wanted to see my I.D. again. I had given my I.D. to my friend that was leaving to hold. The other bouncers looked puzzled but seemed to fear saying anything to this particular bouncer. When I asked to speak to Tim, the GM, no one would call him, nor could I get the bouncers name to file a complaint. He did brag that he was an Investigator for Pima County and asked to see my County I.D. WHY? It doesn't have my DOB on it. Stay away from this place! The bathrooms are filthy, the doors dont even close and it's in very close proximity to the mens room. The obese Hispanic bouncer at the door is rude, unfriendly and unwelcoming, bad business. They had no business turing patrons away, the party was dead and didnt seem to be picking up at all. We ended up going to The Pearl and had a GREAT time! HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE AT THE WILDCAT HOUSE, DONT RECOMMEND. Me and my friends will never set foot in there and will be encouraging our friends to do the same. "Sociologists say the average person interacts repeatedly with approximately 250 other people, including neighbors, family, and co-workers." ?While it may be true that the best advertising is word-of-mouth, never lose sight of the fact it also can be the worst advertising.?
Stay Away from this place!!! – The food is NO GOOD, the big bulky picnic table atmosphere is tacky and the supposed GM Tim has "little man" attitude! The bouncers are major A-Holes. My friends were already in the club, came out, had their hands stamped but the rotund Mexican bouncer (God forbid he had to actually do anything physical!) behind the podium out front would not let them back in, he wanted to see their I.D.'s again! What kind of B.S. is that?! I've got two words for him and geeky Tim-Bad Karma! You shouldn't be treating people the way you do, it's all gonna come back to you in 2009. Stay away from this place, go somewhere NICE like Club Pearl, that is a beautiful atmosphere and great music, beautiful people.
Don't Waste Your Time – These idiots wouldn't know how to run a place if Don Trump came in and showed 'em how. Nothing but attitude from these punks. The food can had at any fast food joint in town. Nothing special there. A total dive.
Overzealous Amateurs – I go every few weeks and even had my last birthday party there, and it's usually alright, and I haven't had a lot of problems. The last time I went, however, after waiting in line for about an hour, the guy at the door refused to let me in because apparently I don't look like my driver's license photo. I then went back to my car, got several more ID's, and repeatedly verbally told him my address, but he still refused to let me in. I called the next day to complain, but the guy that answered the phone was the same guy who wouldn't let me in the night before, and he told me I needed to go get a new ID before I could come back---which I won't be worrying about, because I now have no desire to waste my time going back there ever again.
THEY DON'T NEED YOU HERE! STAY AWAY – Five years ago I wrote a review on Wildcat House as one of my favorite places, a must visit. NOT ANYMORE! It seems with the passing of local competition such as The Bum Steer, they no longer need you here. My last stop we were instructed to "get in line" for the privilege of buying a pitcher of beer; we left. I have stayed gone for my past three trips. This boring place needs to change their attitude before they end up like the Bum Steer. They don't seem to need your business here! STAY AWAY!!
Pros and Cons – Wildcat House on a Friday night is a decent choice. Tons of people, some who actually know how to dance...The guys can be lame, or else they're there with their ladies. Music is decent - from alternative/hard rock mixes, to your standard rap and hip-hop fare. Throw a little techno and country (yes, country) in the mix, and theres something for everyone.
Their drinks aren't ridiculous, and I can't speak to the food since I didn't eat there. All I can say is, ladies especially, watch out for the bathrooms. N. A. S. T. Y. Every single toilet was stopped up, and being the setting that it is, that doesn't mean they weren't still being used. Continuously.
Nothing special – The burgers and food are nothing special and can be purchased at Wendy's for half the price in half the time. I suspect the draw is the name.
It's big, but not so big that you won't get to squeeze past that person you've been eyeing all night. – The Scene:
For college kids quantity is often more important than quality, and The Wildcat House has been serving their intoxication needs for decades. The cavernous, warehouse-like interior operates as a lunchtime depot before transforming into nocturnal dance anarchy. The Wildcat House has hosted undergrad dancing for so long that the original New Wave nights from 1980 recently returned with the same play list. The emphasis these days is on more contemporary sounds which attract a predictably preppy crowd. Live music is infrequent, though local amateur boxing matches have occasionally graced the dance floor. Burgers and Bud rule at the Wildcat House, where a shaking booty never goes out of style.
Must Have Drinks:
Excellent Alternative – Friday nights at the cat house ROCK. All the best alternative bands with a huge dance floor.
