great spring nights – I had a really hot date last night. I wanted to take here somehwere of the beaten path. Society was the place. Yesterday was a great spring night that made me forget about the winter. The outdoor deck gave us some fresh air with our amazing cocktails. The inside was dimly lit and set the perfect mood for some good conversation. Since I am a gentleman All I can say is the night ended wonderfully. I figured the least I can do is thank them. If you would like to experience the city or show someone what the city has to offer I would certainly say Society is a place to be with a good loaction and nice enviornment. Take it easy.

Absolutely love this place! – I absolutely love this place! Perfect for drinks and dinner after work. The food is good, but it's really all about the atmosphere. They play great music and the staff is exceptionally good looking and always very pleasant and friendly. The drinks are cheap, so It's a great place to pre-game on the weekends.

Village Secrete – I went here for happy hour the other day. Didnt think much, actually thought I would be going to an NYU type bar due to the location, but I was wrong. The place had a great ambiance and vibe. The bartender and cocktail waitress were friendly and did everything they could for us to enjoy ourselves. The food was really well prepared, its similar to a bar menue but the food is great-try the mac and cheese or chili. Great happy hour spot and the cocktail waitress who was gorgeous said that it gets live at night, with top industry dj's and a lively staff, the place puts on a clinc. Cant wait to go back...

Coolest Lounge in the Village – This is my favorite bar in the city. Although it's fairly new, I've been there 5 times already. I had been there when it was New Gate, but it wasn't half as cool. New owners, management, and a whole new look. Now it's fun. Hot guys, ladies! (Yes, my guy friends like the girls, too.) The crowd is mid 20's to mid 30's usually. The food is good. Not overpriced, always cooked well. Bar food for munching, or entrees, salads and sandwiches & wraps if you're really hungry. They do big sports promotions; I don't really watch football myself, but I like the energy in the room. And they have a killer outdoor deck. But the real fun of this place comes when the lights are low, and the music starts pumping. Good looking people everywhere, bartenders spinning things like the movie cocktail, and sometimes girls get up on the banquettes and bar and dance! So funny. Plus, they always give me and my girlfriends free shots! The vibe is consistent, but its always entertaining in a slightly new way, if that makes any sense. Anyway, I've never had a bad time...and now I'm a regular!

Great food and drink – My girls and i met on thursday for happy hour last week. We had some apps and a few cocktails. The food was great as were the drinks. My ygirls and I decided this would be our new place for a bite and some drinks after work. We had a blast the crowd was good, the bartender was helpful not to mention he was really cute. Society is a great place to go!!

DON'T EVER GO HERE! – So here is the series of events: My friend and I go here afterwork because SUPPOSEDLY they have $4 martinis until 7pm. We go, it's really not crowded, and we decide to have a few drinks and leave. When I begin to sip my second drink, a critter (I'm not allowed to type the name of the type that crawled by...let's just say it was not a fuzzy, pleasant critter you want to see in a bar) crawls across the bar right in front of me. My friend and I look at each other and say "let's go". As we are asking the bartender to settle our tab, ANOTHER one crawls by. The most incredible part of this is that we tell the bartender, and his reaction is to shrug and then say "Oh, sorry about that"....then he proceeds to charge us almost $8 per drink..... so in summary, DON'T go here. Service is lousy, it's obviously unsanitary, and there was no one there anyway.

great place to...party at – we went on a friday night, around 130...the place was packed, small line to get in, once inside it was hot, great dj, drinks not too expensive, bartenders VERY generous with drinks. overall great place to spend a night.

best party spot in downtown – I have been to this place twice and the party was sick. There were alot of chicks and cool guys there. The bartenders are crazy and kept giving me free drinks when the party stared to heat up. My buddies ordered alot of food and ate it in the relaxing oudoor area. They said the burgers were incredible. I will definatey be back.

Amazing outdoor seating!!! – The food is really good here. Went to a birthday party here. Food rocked. They have mostly girls that work here and they are really hot. The crowd was cool... totally hang on the deck. It's the best I've been too in the city.......... did I mention the girls were smoking hot here. Seriously!!
