Pretenders – I am back for another lashing of one of Houston's nightclubs. I had heard about their crazy door antics before hand so my friend and I decided to show up early to insure our entry. We pull up and there is no one in line. Perfect, right? Wrong! Walk up to the bouncer/doorman and hand him my ID assuming that we wouldn't have a problem getting in. "No entry, we are only letting in our VIPs right now." Interesting . . . I am a pretty reasonable guy so I stepped aside and literally started the line. Two or three groups of people have entered the club while my friend and I are the only ones in line. "Dude, can you let us slide?" No sir, not a chance. This went on for a little less than a half hour and the line behind us has grown to a respectable size. Still no movement. I am only so patient, we stepped out of line and told the bouncer that his establishment is in Houston, not Miami or LA and I would never return. I have kept my word and I make sure that other young, upwardly mobile African American folks hear my story before deciding to give these people their money. The times I have been inside showed a pretentious crowd dancing to lackluster music in a tiny venue. If that is appealing then by all means this is the place for you but if you would like to go to a place that you can enjoy good music and good people, heed my warning and avoid this place like the plague! Stay strong and keep searching.
Affliction shirt paradise!! – If you are a classy lady or gentleman and trying to meet nice new people, do NOT go here!! The guys have spiked hair, Affliction shirts, and designer jeans. There's nothing wrong with designer jeans, but you can hopefully figure out the type of people I'm describing. They will not open the door or get out of the way of a lady. They will also cut in front of you in the bathroom line and then leave the seat up and the bathroom a mess. Skip this place, it is D-bag central! Also the girls are really pretentious and snobby. Drinks expensive and I think they use a shot measurer to pour them (lame). Head next door to Whiskey Creek for a decent time, unless you own an affliction shirt (or similar), then please stay there at Escobar with the lame "house" music.
get with the program brah – I'm ugly as@#$#but was let right in after pulling up in my ferrari while being blwn by lyndsay. If you complain about having to wait in line, hey, face it, you just aren't making it bromosxual.....I mean, just like...get rich or have surgery, man. that's how it goes down in the big leagues if you wanna ht those babeasauruses....awww yeah
I have only two word. Don't Go. Even if you go, they wont let you in. They let all sort of people in, while you wait in the line. You have to tip him heavily to get in and it is not worth it. There are other better places.
The place SUUUCKS. The door man took cash to let people go in. It was way to crowded and not classy at all! I was expecting a whole lot of hype and well it was a whole lot of nothing...let me tell you something..The place SUUUCKS. The place SUUUCKS. The place SUUUCKS.
Beware of theives – I lost my purse here and unfortunately there are no more decent, honest people out there. It is a gold clutch with a camera, my ID, makeup, purple cell phone and a yellow jewlery purse inside. I don't care about any of the items if they are not returned to me, but the memory card is most precious to me and holds 450 pictures from my recent trip to Tuscany. I will pay 300 dollars to anyone no questions asked who returns this card to me. I will offer more if everything is returned to me. Atleast the total value of all the items. Or maybe you could just prove to me that you are not a theif and are an honest human being. If you have any information about the individual who has taken my belongings please call me at 713291-6660 or e-mail me at lindseyweiler878@hotmail. By the way ladies watch your drinks because I was most certaintly drugged. Obviously this place is dangerous.
Avoid going there at every cost – We tried to go in there a couple of months ago. We were made to stand in line for about 45 minutes till we finally left. The door man took cash to let people go in, literally hand picked those who came in fancy cars or the girls in 20s who were dressed over revealingly. People who came after us were let in on basis of looks. Will not recommend this place to anyone. This place seems to be catering to the needs of certain class of men by providing really young girls. Never been to a place that treats customers like this and wil not recommend any professional to go there, a very indecent place.
Need to bribe the doorman to let u in – Awful experience! We were 3 (hot) girls and 2 guys. The door man was so rude. He made us wait more than 30 min. I kept asking him if hes gonna let us in coz if not we can leave and go somewhere better. He kept on saying yeah we will let you in but right now we are catering to VIPs only. He kept on letting in only his friends and then i saw that almost everyone he was letting in were handing him some cash. Also I noticed he was letting in only white ppl and mostly blonds. we were brunettes, brown, asian, indians, mixed. I guess they dont like diversity. well atleast thats the impression i got. so yeah either u gotta be white or bribe him to get in...or both. anyway we left but one of our friends who was in there she said it def was not worth it coz it was way to crowded and not classy at all! we ended up going to Rich's and had a blast!!!! We were on the dance floor till 4 AM. it was awesome!
Cute girls? It doesn't matter. – Four of us went out for girls' night (which doesn't happen often, as we are all moms as well). But don't get me wrong, we are hot moms. All late 20's-early 30's, slim and attractive. The door guy still made us wait 20 minutes while all kinds of other people (many of them so-so looking guys) were allowed to walk straight in. We asked what was going on and he said it was VIPs. There was nothing at all we saw or heard that that convinced us this was what was going on. I could understand a door guy not wanting to let in a lot of extra guys if they were crowded, but 4 attractive girls alone? That was just plain rude and not fitting with other reviews saying they just let in cute people. We were about to walk away when he finally let us in. And once we were in, the guys would not stay away from us in the dance floor. So obviously the other club goers in there enjoyed our company and thought we were attractive. But because of the door experience, we won't be going back. If we want to deal with that kind of scene, we'd move to a hole like Dallas.
Don't even waste your time – Wow! I was expecting a whole lot of hype and well it was a whole lot of nothing...let me tell you something..i think the only reason I was getting in was because I'm blonde...my friends came in later and they are brunettes and got completely booed...i think this is a totally unfair act and it is a loss of justice for americans as a whole when we are judged by what we wear, how we look and not the content of our character....
Thumbs down for the Escobar establishment!!!!
I would give it a zero star if I could..........
