Went there this weekend to check it out. The bartender (blonde, long haired chubby with cheap eyeliner) very rude and uneducated attitude. Not going back to this club because its not for a high end people like me. Its for cheapo people who's trashy. Music/DJ was not great to all rappin songs. Do not go to this club. WORST SERVICE EVER IN MY LIFE
Never going back – Some friends and I went to a few of the clubs on my birthday. Compared to any of the other clubs this one was definetly the most expensive. We had no problems getting in however it seemed like a bit of a rip off. We got two rail drinks and that costed us $18. We were a little shocked at the price when next door at club NV we were paying $1 for rail drinks. Either the bartender was retarded or they are trying to screw everybody over with the costs. All in all, the other clubs had a nicer atmosphere, better music, cheaper drinks and entry fee. We will not be returning to Aqua Nightclub again.
This club reminds me of Vegas Clubs – We had bottle service last Saturday night. It was a great experience. One of our friends could not get because he was wearing Tennis shoes, so he had to go home change and come back. I personally liked it because only well dressed crowd is allowed there. I now understand why a lot of people are upset with the bouncers because they don't let everyone in that Club. They keep it classy and I felt like I am in Vegas. Bottle service was GREAT. Our server was good looking and helpful. They even gave us a discount on our third bottle which was great. I would go there again and again. This club belongs to Miami or Vegas.
Not Coming Back!!!! – After paying a lot of money for VIP we got the worst service ever. I was not able to get in in to my VIP TWICE even with VIP wristband. I asked the bouncer if there another wristband i should have for him to get me in and he said NO. He said someone has to WAIVE you from VIP then i will get you in (yes, and my name was on the list too). Really??? If you consider this VIP to be private, please do a stamp or another wristband or something!!!!! So, at this point, my night was all ready ruined; then i got phone call from my gf that she was in the line and bouncers at the door totally ignored her when she tried to explain that she was on VIP list. I came down and tried to talk to the girl at the register and she waived like "go away"....argh i love downtown and i go to different places like NV, the Lounge...but i never was sooooo upset. This club sucks!!!!
Im a regular! – AQUA has alot of different nights going which is cool. Fridays is a mix of latin and top 40. Sat is all different types. Sunday is hip hop like all clubs downtown, not my favorite night to be in MPLS but I got a very extensive pat down..lol..I guess I felt safe knowing they do that to everyone. (No pat downs on thurs, fri, and sat lol) Love all the nights and they always have drink specials and bottle service specials. Great staff. With all the clubs closing in Minneapolis and this one is going strong...obviously doing sumthin right!
New years EVE 2011 – This is one of the worst clubs in the twin cities. If you are looking to spend a lot of money but be greeted with horrible service and down right rude employees this is definately the place to go to. The VIP section is way too small and falsely advertised. I normally am not one to complain and pretty much could have a good time anywhere but this was by far one of my worst experiences and not to mention a poorly ran business. When a customer calls to reserve a VIP section the person on the receiving end of this business transaction should also be curtious enough to mention that someone else will be calling back to follow up and confirm reservations. But this should be considered the same thing when the customer calls back and confirms instead. The employees at this club need to get on the same page and COMMUNICATE with each other about what is going on instead of working individually and when faced with an issue, don't stand there and act like clueless and as if you were doing your job. You want to run a business well? well learn to talk to each other and possible keep a script of what information should be told to your clients. Business is business but people don't spend serious money to get down right rude and poor service. If you are looking for a classy and well ran business with good and welcoming service, this is exactly not the place to be at!
not to mention the bouncers are AIRHEADS literally, when someone passes out the rules are to leave the club right???? well when clients are cooperating and leaving like they should be, don't stop them! let them go and leave the club like you want them to! Hire bouncers who can think on thier own two feet and can add 1+ 1 and put two and two together. You are better off hiring gorillas and a pine tree.
Bad value, boring, uptight... – After paying too much to get in, you are in a small room with no places to sit and the interesting places cordoned off. This might have been all right if the music was any good, but it was horrible. It felt like a ghost town, too, since everyone else was staying away. The DJ didn't play music to get people on the floor, so every other song everyone would just stand around. There were a lot of employees just standing around, too. I've been to a lot of places that were less expensive, more packed, and more fun. I think Aqua should lower the price or just close during the week.
bouncers need a life – went to go into club not the first time ive been there. i have had good times there. But the bouncer at the front door wouldnt let me in because im a guy with long hair. i had dress shoes pants and shirt i asked why i couldnt get in and he said get a hair cut. he about got his jaw busted so mr bouncer if you read this better hope i dont see you when im reall hammerd cause i no ill get one hit off before i get mobbed.
Never again, great place to get assaulted by bouncers – I was thrown to the curb last night because i flicked off the bartender because he refused to honor the drink special at 12:58 am when it lasted till 1:00 am. Then when I yelled at them on public sidewalk one of the bouncers maced me. I am still burning from it and I plan on getting justice. I called the police right away and they came and said if i don't leave I would go to detox!!!!!!! I was the victim and they automatically took aqua nightclubs side!
COAT CHECK NOT PRIORITY!!!! – I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK POORLY ABOUT THIS NIGHT CLUB DUE TO MISPLACING OUR COATS ELSE WHERE. JUST LIKE THERES SAFTY RULES ON WHY U REQUEST TO BE FULL RESPONSIBLE IN HANDING OUR COATS WITH A CHARGE OF 2DOLLARS I AT LEAST EXPECT TO HAVE MY COAT RETURNED BY THE END OF THE NIGHT. INSTEAD I DID GET IGNORED NOT TAKEN WITH PRIORITY AND TREATED BADLY BY YOUR UNPORFESIONAL STAFF. due to having outragious fight and having to be the last 15minutes before everyone flooded the club i was asked to wait till it was over to recieve my coat! I insisted and got kicked out for having all right to ask for my coat. After everyone finally left no coats in sight i again requested a futher assistance besides your animal securitys that at the end violated there position of being overpowerd to spray me in the face with maze. why? for the fact that i was wrong and there always right so i left with no coat and just want to say u cant trat people like animals! p.s U WILL NOT GET AWAY !further legal actions will ocur.
