One of my favorite clubs in San Diego – If you are into that trendy club scene in San Diego I definitely recommend looking into Envy. Bottle service is great and if you can afford it, do it. You wont have to deal with all the headaches like lines and crowds. Having a place to sit is key anyway.
Classy, Ladies night out spot – Its worth a visit and if the DJ is spinning a good set the ladies will be out in force. Guys, open your wallet.
Rude Service and Tacky Scene – To begin, a friend and I went to the Ivy on a Saturday night. The bartender was incredibly rude to us, as if it were an inconvenience to pour us a drink. We ordered two glasses of Veuve Cliquot champagne for $20 each (the only option by the glass) which tasted like acidic grape fruit juice. The champagne had obviously been left open and/or exposed to temperature changes so I asked the bartender for a new drink (the cheap plastic glasses were also dirty with water stains). He told me that the champagne had not been exposed to temperature changes (as if he has been with the bottle from the time of distribution to the time it reached my glass) but he did agree to exchange the champagne for another drink. There is a serious lack of seating on the rooftop (unless you pay for a table) and the glass windows surrounding the perimeter of the deck are digustingly filthy. The bathroom design attempts to be modern and edgy by having one sink/wash area for both the men and the women, but it just doesn't work here. It gets overly crowded and I don't need to face a strange man while putting on lipstick in the bathroom. The crowd is an amateur one at best, with several bachelor/bachelorette parties, meat-headed "tough" guys, and trashy girls. I suppose the real issue I have with this place is that it tries to present itself as some classy, chic, and glamorous club, when in reality it is tasteless and tacky not to mention having a rude staff. Overall, the venue itself has the potential to be a great rooftop lounge, but the staff's lack of professionalism and the clientele's lack of style makes Eden an undesirable destination for those wanting a sophisticated, stylish, and fun evening out.
Beautiful view, beautiful crowd – Stayed at the Ivy for the w/e and checked out both Envy and Eden. DJ kept the beat going, great dancing girls on side stage next to DJ stage great to watch when you weren't dancing. Heaters in several spots for the chilly nights. Beautiful, fun-loving crowd and lots of crowd control to make sure things don't get too crazy. Very upscale. I'd go again!
Never Again – We went to the Ivy this past weekend and will never go again. The people at the door were rude and stuck up. we finally reached our party that had vip on the top and the waitress we had was horrible if you would ask for a drink from the bar she would give a attitude and would tell you it would be a long wait. If and when she would come back and serve from the bottle we had she made you so extremely uncomfortable with her attitude. We will never go back the security staff and hostess and basiclly the whole staff were extremely stuck up. They need to realize they are in the customer service industry and treat people kindly and respectfully. oh the only people we liked were the valet guys they were great!!!
nice venue but be careful if you throw a party here – Very trendy fashionable spot. Threw a party here and was very happy with the look and feel of the venue. Great potential.
However we did feel ripped off. We paid a per hour / per person drink price. A waitress approached me and four guests when I arrived and we ordered drinks. We still did not have them over an hour later after we spoke with three other staff including a manager, bouncer and server. The manager was not apologetic and reminded me that we were paying by the hour, not the cocktail. That wasn't at all relevant at that point, I just wanted any drink, even a soda would have been nice. I was finally able to obtain my first drink an hour and twenty minutes into the party. This was a large party that filled the roof deck and it was embarrassing not to be able to get a drink. The bar was open for us but they made the drinks ridiculously slowly so a long line formed. It is definitely better to pay per drink here at this was obviously a tactic. As a host I needed to greet people and chat so it was impractical to stand in a long line or chase the staff for a drink as my own staff ultimately did.
One of best view in SD – Althoug expensive you know what you are getting into when you go to Envy. Great view!!! Great chic style with a little bit of Vegas and LA mixed in which can be good and bad depending on what kind of crowd you are expereincing on that particualar night. We wont point figures. Great taste, great style. All around highly recommended if you like to enjoy an upscale environment.
Elegant Night Club – I have been to this club once and my friends and I had a good time specially because I met the oracle and he told me things I wanted to hear. LOL. Is a very classy elegant envirorment and not vulgar at all. Besides the security guard is my friend and he does not let wait in line.
Wannabe L.A. crowd, Very Hot women Though! – If you are looking to meet women they are hot but kinda snobby. This is San Diego's best version of a club in L.A. (I have actually had better time's on Sunset Blvd.)
Great club – I had a great time at Ivy. The music and general vibe of the club is really fun. The dancers here are WAY better than any of the other typical go-go dancers at the other clubs. They were very entertaining and I couldn't take my eyes off them!! If you're looking for a good time with friends, I recommend The Ivy.
