Pay Money and Get Harassed – I was never humiliated by anybody as much as I was humiliated by this huge black manager of the nightclub. I cannot believe that the owner of that club would hire a manager who approaches people in such a threatening and rude manner. I was really disappointed. I felt really threatened when he started talking to me. Regardless of how they think they need to run that nightclub, they do not have the right to approach patrons the way they do. We're going out to have a good time -- we didn't deserve to be treated the way he treated us. He treated us like we're in prison and that's not the way you handle customer service positions. So if anybody wants to be treated disrespectfully, go and meet the manager of this place.
Elitist/Snobby – Went here for the first time recently, and will likely never be back. People were more into their designer outfits than dancing. Place was too crowded, staff was rude. Overall, nothing really good about this place. Definitely a lot of eye candy, but there is less hassle at a strip club, and you'll end up spending a little less. Don't go here, for the love of god, don't do here:)
Its the most rediculous club – I go to many clubs LA, OC, VEGAS, Sandiego, sanjose, sanfransisco. Never came across a club that didnt allow anyone in until 11:30 and pretending theres only bottle service available at 12:45 when the club ends at 2 for $400 outside in the cold not even in the bar! it was just rediculous staff!!!!
Fabulous Dance Club, would go every week if I had time! – I am not sure where all these people are coming from, but I think the club is freaking awesome! What lines, what cover charges, didn't know they had any! LOL! The music is great, the atmosphere is wonderful, the people rock and I could dance all night to the killer music. The door guys are adorable, especially Kevin! I have never had a bad experience here, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to have a good time! As far as the crowd goes, A++++++ all the way in my book!
very plain. bouncers are mean – one rectangle room. not too much atmosphere.bouncers dont leave you alone. crowd is okay. sometimes there is a good different crowd. they charge $20 to get in which is ridiculous. will go back once in a while to see if the place and people have changed
good music, trendy vibe, obnoxious door people – I came here for the first time having moved from the east coast. I am used to upscale, trendy nightclubs/lounges in nj/nyc so it will take a lot ot impress me. The place is very chic, and upscale/trendy however their choice of who they let in is not as elite as what one would think. I saw such a wide mix of people there. What bothered me the most about this place is that I arrived here just BEFORE 10pm when no one really heads out at this time. I was with 2 guy friends and of course they busted our chops about not having any females with us. My pitch was that we came early knowing this and we know that the place can't be packed at 10pm. The manager persisted to hassle us to buy a bottle in which we refused knowing it was a scheme to attempt to upsell us in there. I more or less said listen if you're going to be rude to us we're out of here. Finally after 5 minutes of deliberation they let us in. Sure enough, there were literally 5 other people there.
I feel very bad for the bartenders at this place who are held down by poor management who instead of trying to pack the place to get people in there early, they play a stupid game at the door trying to create an image. Management was certainly a joke at this place and they do not know what is going on. Other than that, the music was good, I had a fun time, but the overall atmosphere of the club needs work. The whole place is more or less one big room with poor decor choices and very boring design.
I would recommend this place to go out late night with some friends to dance, have some drinks, and maybe pick up a girl or guy. But I would not go there suspecting a top-notch level of service nor would I recommend purchasing a bottle as the vip is no prize here, it is amongst the "general population" haha. Good Luck.
People were such dicks we had to sneak in through the kitchen – ok, my and my buddy never got in, the door staff, like at most bars, are complete tools that make $10 an hour. We did see that old manager guy, and he was a total viagra monster. They wanted $100 to get in the club since it was full or something. Se we decided to sneak in. First, the mexican cooks wouldnt let us in, so we sneaked our way into the restaruent. The club part was ridiculous, every girl that I saw looked like a playboy model and there were girls half dressed dancing on tables. We had to have a "stamp" to get in the club part and the guy was a total meat missle licker. Se we decided to try sneaking in through the kitchen. My friend went first, some mexicans were yelling at him, but he just continued through, I then followed as he was gone for 5 minutes. I finally found him upstairs, there were multiple doors but they were all locked. It sucked. The manager was there waiting for us when we got out. I didnt even try to deny it, we just started telling him we were looking for the bathroom, and calling him dad. It was hilarious, he was totally mad and we just kept telling dad that we didnt need an escort. This has to be the best club in Newport as far as hot girls are concerned, Chronic Cantina was pretty cool but very diverse. Fritz is a great strip club. Ectacy is too, $50 bucks a dance but they basically lick your protein stick
Don't waste your time – So we had dinner next door at Ten, which was alright. During dinner, we asked to see a VIP Bottle Service Host and were told that someone would come to the table. We were only two people who were willing to pay $300 for a $40 bottle of vodka and the RUDE hostess was trying to act like the club was SO packed there was no room. HAHA WHAT A JOKE. We get to the front door after dinner and there is NO ONE in the club... hahahaha I thought it was hilarious to see them standing there swatting flies. Word to the wise: when two people wanna spend $300+ dollars at your empty club - LET THEM IN. hahaha The crowd was horrible.... we left immediately. Funny to me - such pretentious folk.... I thought OC was supposed to be more relaxed and nice. Oh well - won't EVER go back there again!
They WILL Rip you off on bottle service - several other warning reviews below – Loser employees giving attitude, 'cause they got nothing else going on; a dj trying to please everyone with chopped up blends; and worst of all - THEY RIP YOU OFF. After reading this, I can see that I'm probably one of many in dispute with this sleazy place for pumping up my credit card bill after I left. My first bottle service bill was $860 (tip included according to the card slip). I was sober, the dd. The waitress who gave us NO service came back with another slip for $920 saying that I didn't tip. No big deal, I used to work on tips, so I don't stiff anybody, ever. Turns out that they charged my card $990!
The only positives were nice enough doormen and a friendly crowd into the party mode. But don't support the sleaze. No one deserves to be ripped off when you just wanna party.
Ultra LAME tentations lounge – wow! this place was TERRIBLE. I read all the terrible reviews, but was hoping since it was a concert event (mickey avalon - the dopest rapper this century) with tickets lines and the bottle service scam wouldn't be in full effect. WRONG. Multiple lines outside even thought the place looked dead, and they ahve the nerve to come and tell us that they are "at maximum capacity" and "even if you have a ticket you might not get in." of course this was all talk to try and swing people over to the bottle service line. finally, they let ticket holders in because mickey avalon fans don't take that kind of attitude. well, i had hoped that that would be the end of it...but no. This club should definitely stick to sushi and dancing because the acoustics were terrible. mickey would have sounded better with a boombox. the stage was TINY and cramped. over all this place was a wanna-be LA club, but located near the airport in the OC. I would never return here. EVER.
