Great for Girls Night Out – We decided to try out Studio 503 for a girls night out on a Sat. and had a lot of fun (sober too)! None of our crew had ever been so we had pretty low expectations. Cover for girls was only 5 bucks. The VIP area was comfy and the birthday girl got 2 free bottles of cham. The dance floor was huge and it got jumping after 11:30. Guys were assertive but respectful. The mid 20s-30s crowd had rhythm, what a breath of fresh air! We were hoping for more reggaeton(kudos for cool bhangra track that snuck in there) but music was ok mix, even better if you are knowledgeable on latin dances. I don't recommend wasting money on the spendier weak cocktails. Be sure to just buy beer as you go with cash at the bar so there are no hassles. We were told they don't take credit cards. Didn't experience any fights that previous reviewer mentioned; bouncers were everywhere and we felt very safe. Not too many seats in dance club part, be sure to reserve VIP if you want to sit. This place is a lot of fun as long as you aren't expecting Vegas or LA, no clubs in OR offer that and never will.
Not the place to be at weekends – Studio 503 is a Beaverton bar that attract crowds during weekends. Drinks are usually pretty reasonable but they tend to mix cheap liquor in to the top shelf brands so stick to the cheap ones. (guess that is illegal) The service is reasonable as well. The bar tenders seems to be friendly but watch out when you close the tab. They tend to scam you. (Always remember the count of drinks you had) However the management and the bouncers are not upto par. May be some ametures hiried for cheap. Used to have to pay cover to get into the dance section of the club. But, now you need to pay cover to get in the bar section as well. The cover is a bit over-priced for the location and a bar of such state. [$10] There is a pool tournament every Friday at 8pm which they allow only if you pay $5 or what ever there price and winner get the money at the end. (Feels like a gambling joint) Usually the crowd is nice but a weekend wont go through without some fight(s).
Don't Open a Tab! Don't Check Your Coat! – I went to this club the other night and had a really good time! Until it was time to go....I tried to close out my tab and the bartender hands me my id and says, "Looks like we lost your card" with a shrug. Wow. Great. Ok well that happens I guess. So I go to get my coat from the coat check at which point I discover that my wallet was missing out of the pocket. No money was in it anyways, but all my cards, etc...
I think it's pretty rediculous that the employees of this place lost my things twice in one night!
And what is the manager's way of addressing it? Nothing really. No apology, no comps.
