The just-turned-21 set crowds Lansdowne's top all-purpose nightlife option to dance, watch sports and mingle. – The Scene
Promising "Spring Break 52 weeks a year," this multilevel drinking destination attracts young, hormonally charged students, especially during weekly Wet T-shirt and "Buff Body" contests. Red Sox game days find a slightly older crowd filling the circular booths (each with a personal TV) and tables on the outdoor patio. Service is provided by well-intentioned waitresses clad in jeans so tight, they look tattooed on.
Tequila Rain offers an endless number of activities for the easily distracted. After filling up on Tex-Mex food and drink (smoked chicken quesadillas and frozen margaritas), many patrons stare intently at sports events on the city's only triple high-definition video wall. Others fill a subterranean dance floor regularly packed with energetic souls bouncing along to DJ-spun tunes. The Taboo Lounge attracts those looking to unwind, and students looking for a friendly game of pool.
Poor Dinner Service – It you like slow service...comparable to watching turtles race, then have dinner at Tequila Rain. I was highly disappointed at the slow service for dinner and drinks, and on a Monday night! My group (of 3) waited to be 10 minutes to be seen, then another 10 minutes for our first drinks, the appetizer order was forgotten about (which we placed with our first drink order) and the food took over 30 minutes. Not what you'd expect when you're only one of 7 other tables with guests in the entire restaurant.
Watch Out – Club seems to attract a lot of meatheads and the typically obnoxious just-turned-21 crowd. The bouncers could be a little more attentive. Dancing is almost impossible since the place is packed. To make things worse, most people on the dance floor are just standing there taking up space. Service is good though; our server was fast and attentive. The weekly contests and promotions are worth checking out.
Girls' night out – My girlfriends and I went last Friday night, and despite a little bit of a long wait in line out in the cold (we were underdressed...) we finally had a blast! This place is all about having fun. The music was diverse, and the dance floor was packed. It was nice to hang with unpretentious people for a change! We are definitely going back!
HORRIBLE SERVICE – Never think you have enough time to get in a quick bite before a concert at this establishment (you'd think an hour would be enough, but we were sadly, and hungrily, mistaken). After 45 minutes, we couldnt even get a glass of water out of our waitress. And this isn't the first time I've had horrible service at Tequila Rain. When our waitress finally arrived with only half our drink order, we gave up and left.
I am never going back.
