Cool club – I really liked it. Beautiful people, beautiful bar, beautiful servers. The dancers on the glass platforms really gave it the added glam most places are lacking these days. I felt safe and comfortable even though it was extremely busy. A bottle of water (small) cost $4.00. I didn't even want to ask how much a cocktail cost! Other than that it was a really great time!
Stopped by on a lark and discovered that Timo Maas was DJing. Read elsewhere that Miguel Migs has DJ'd. These are two of the top ten DJs on the planet, so if this is a trend, it's very positive. A woman grabbed me to dance, so that was nice. Better dance floor than the Lounge; comparable clientele. Still pumping with a good mix of people from it's newness; we'll see how it goes if the area's attitudinally impaired look-gooders take over.
something different – If you want to a place that you never know who might be there from your best friend to a celeb, this is your place. Ultra class and fine treatment. VIP to casual is accepted. Great girls night out!
Don't waste your time or money! – As being a person who is pretty familiar with the Latin Dance night venues, I was initially excited about a new club offering a Latin Dance night. I was sorely disappointed. The band was probably of the poorest quality I have yet to see in the Twin Cities, the atmosphere was bland, and the place was filled with dance class students who only danced with each other. There was not much in the way of seating or even small tables to set your drink on. They did have half of the place closed off, I suppose, to make it seem like it was crowded. The drinks were very overpriced. I truly felt I wasted my time and a lot of money and got nothing in return.
Lots of work ahead – No doubt, the club looks good - not great. The management has a tough road ahead of them. The location is poor. Read: Block E . The entry criteria is odd. I have seen people turned away that looked like they belonged inside, yet shorts/flip/flops were allowed in. The music is poor - not trance, not house, not d&b. Create music theme nights, please! Bring in some world-class DJs. Create an atmosphere, there is none now. Don't repeat South Beach guys.
Boring! – The music was average. The club as a whole was not that exciting and finally left because I was bored. Too much space with not enough going on. Security skills were lacking. Hopefully they will step up the excitement quotient, instead of just relying on a semi-upscale atmosphere. Saturday was seriously lacking, maybe Friday will be a better choice. Also, bartendars knowledge of drinks was below average, they did not even have a decent suggestion when asked. In addition, dress code was loosely enforced.
Pretty Cool! – One of the best clubs I have been to in a long time. It is like a Vegas or Manhattan Club. Good times, the question will be if they can maintain the great customers in the club? Hopefully they will keep a high cover and strong dress codes. Keep up the good work.
