Beautiful Venue – I went to Touch a few weeks ago, and was impressed by this beautifully done venue. I hadn't been at the space since it was called Float. I am not aware of the problems with New Year's Eve, since I avoid going out on this night anyway. Every club is pretty much a nightmare then!
My experiences with the door staff, security and the bartenders was excellent. But I may be a biased since I lost my purse and cell phone, and it was returned to me in the cashier booth, with all of my money even still in it.
I plan on going to Touch again n a few weeks, when I recoup from the holidays....
TOUCH=DEATH – Touch is by far the worst, most disgusting, classless, ugly, gross, and hideous place I have ever been to. I would rather go to hell than go to touch. It doesn't classify as a club, I was stuck in an upstairs "VIP section" that was a tiny, dirty room that probably wasn't even part of the club. The main attraction was a 4 centimeter disco ball hanging on the ceiling. I felt like I was on a bad ski trip. Not only did we have to wait for 4 hours on what was supposed to be the VIP line, but we also had to deal with the idiot bouncer, a horrible waitress, a terrible bartender, and a really stupid coat check attendant. I have never seen such an incompetant group of individuals run a business in my life. If TOUCH is not out of business within the next month i will be very surprised. Literally the worst time i have ever had in my life, i will never go back there. DONT EVER GO TO THIS PLACE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE AND HORRIBLE
Best New year – Happy new years everyone . Went to the new club Touch and had a blast bought general admission tickets and got in right away security was making the line quick and prompt no prolem here but i must say the bottle line was long. Great club with alot of space and good drinks. The environment was awesome and people were great security was very helpful. I needed to get to the bathroom upstairs and security helped me upstairs great place going again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 2008
Horrible service, rude staff, poor management – If I could give this place less than 1 star, I would. My group and I purchased platinum VIP tix with two tables and six bottles. We arrived at 9 PM and had to wait in line for 2 1/2 hours in the cold. The dance floor is below a balcony and security is not available to prevent upstairs guests from pouring alcohol on the guests on the dance floor. And don't be surprised if security decides to visit the women's bathroom. Or if the two tables that you purchase are downsized to one table because there are no longer tables available by the time you are admitted. Also don't be surprised if you slip and fall on the floors. I witnessed multiple falls that night. Oh, and don't be surpised if you pay for an open bar and by the time you are admitted, there is only beer left. Oh, and if you love smoking that occurrs in indoor public places, then this would be the place for you. Oh yes, and the womens' restroom comes fully equipped with its own wading pool that you get to walk through to get to the toilet.
DO NOT GO – Worst experience I've ever had at a bar/club. Terrible management and poor service, we were told initially that 2 bottles were included in our table which my party already had paid for however once we got to the door we were told that no the bottles aren't included and that in fact they gave away our table, and this is all after waiting 2 hours in the VIP line. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. To make things worst once we got inside you couldn't even get within 10 feet of the bar because it was so overcrowded. If i could give it no stars at all i would, I'm telling everyone I know not to go and I recommend you stay away as well.
Great Place To Dance! – I took two of my out of town friends to Touch a couple of Saturday's ago and we all had an absolute blast. The crowd was a fun one, the music varied, which kept everyone on the dance floor and the drinks were easy to come by at the bar. Also, loved the fact that the bar lit up every time I touched it and the room changes colors. If you want a cool place to dance and you're over Marquee (who isn't at this point), definitely check out Touch.
Great club – Went on Sat night with a few friends and to be honest wasn't expecting much....however i was pleasantly suprised and had a great time. Its rare now a days to find a place that not only looks great, but has plenty of room to dance. The bar itself is pretty cool as well, it lights up to the touch (i guess the bar is a play on the name). The bartender was quick and funny as well. He seemed to enjoy what he was doing and gave off a good vibe. Overall i had a great night and would definately reccommend this place to someone who wants to go to a beautiful club that has room to dance. The color scheme is great as well. am interested to go back in a month and see if its even better.
Nothing Special – Was not the least bit impressed by the crowd, music, set-up, or service. In addition the coat check is run very poorly- I had to wait about 10 mins in line even though I had a table. Then when I wanted to leave b/c it was so crappy they made me wait again to pick it up. Will not be going back....
