Great DJ, overcrowded – I went to Pandora on a Saturday night. Now, I did have to wait in line (15 minutes), but this was nothing unexpected being a group of 2 guys and 1 girl. The bouncer was a d*ck, but hey, thats his job.
The upside was the DJ. The music was the best I've heard in Houston. Drinks were not expensive either, in fact, they were cheap.
The downside was the crowd and the outdoor smoking area. They really need to expand the patio so you're not rubbing shoulders with some greasy haired sweat dripping overweight dude.
What i do NOT consider a downside: the waiting in line. For all those people complaining about racism or waiting in line, face it, thats the way things are run. I'm not white, neither were my friends. If you look good and are dressed well, chances are you'll get in. I'm not all that much of a clubber, preferring bars, but I do know what to expect from Houston clubs. So don't whine when doors don't automatically open and a red carpet doesn't roll out for you.
Suh-wheat!!! – This place is awesome. I like how they never let people in, and they're all like "...but I've never had a problem getting into clubs!" Sometimes they make me wait for up to 3 hours to get in, but that's the price I have to pay to be super awesome. Jen is the best. I like it when she yells at people. She punched my friend Raul because he is Mexican and wears ostrich cowboy boots. Then she jumped on his back and fell down the stairs. Now she has to wear an eye patch to cover up her animosity of "lesser" people. She's the bomb. If you can't have a good time here, you must just be simply not awesome enough to have awesomeness ooze out of you....like Jen. Hold on, I don't think that's awesomeness. It's way too creamy.
Rude and discrimanating door man – I am a white dude who has friend of all colors and this place had no problem letting me and my white friends in, but when it came to my friends of color they decided they couldnt get in even though they make more money and dress nicer than I do. Also a note to the blonde girl who "operates the place" your fiance was outside talking about how he was trying to nail some other blonde chick while you were working. Just to prove i know what I am talking about the blonde girl who works there was wearing teal pants and your fiance was wearing a t-shirt that I think was military or firefighter. I cant really remember 100% and this was about 2 weeks ago.
pandora – this place is perfect for a night out with friends. the parking attendents are fast and quick to take care of your car. the door man is good at keeping out the trash and the " broke bustas" and letting in some of the most beautiful women houston has to offer. it is no wonder these beautiful women keep coming back. the women to men ration is strictly enforced at 3 to 1 but it seems more 5 to1. note to the guys- you better be a sharp successful looking guy if you want to get in. the bartenders are always quick to get your drink and are beautiful by the way too. the dj is guarantied to bob your head with his original mixes and remixes. the only con i can forcefully come up with is that the crowd is a late crowd at really begin to arrive about midnight. you might not want to get there at 10:30.
Boooo Whooooo This place gets two thumbs down!!!! – I would like to write a nice review about this place.......but we never got in.
Our crowd is a bit older, but we heard great things about this place and wanted to check it out. We paid $10 for the parking, which that was not a problem....
We then went to the line and waiting about 15 minutes. Why was there a line? I don't know because each time they opened the door it was empty!!!! The doorman was letting everyone in behind us, anyone who went to the VIP line, it was crazy! I'm always in a great mood to party and dance, but I guess we were not the right age as everyone that was going in here looked very young.
Oh well I will never give this place a second try, nor will I recommend....
Best Lounge in Houston.... – Beautiful bartenders!! Wednesday nights are AMAZING!!! Loved it!!!! The ambiance is exceptional and It was packed. The bartenders were SO good that I never had to wait for a drink!! I WILL go back again! For all the people that complain about not being able to get in...there is obviously a REALLY good reason for that. If the door guy is rude..that's probably just because you are just mad you are not awesome enough to get in. You HAVE to blame your ill fortune on someone other than yourself...right?? For the retard that suggested Uropa...if it were 2002, YEAH, but not even CLOSE these days buddy! No wonder you didn't get in! For the one who said the tall blonde is the best bartender there...I agree. She rocks!! Highly reccommended!! Wednesday nights are AWESOME, Friday nights--they have the best DJ EVER, and Saturday nights are off the chain too!! Can't go wrong @ this club...well, unless you are a crazy girl who likes to throw glasses @ innocent bartenders...then I suggest you stay home. Not cool...you go to jail for that kind of thing!! Check it out if you haven't already!
Loft-like space in the Sixth Ward with a disco ball dance floor and plenty of lounge space. – In Short
A bar in the front of the spacious one-room club (there's another at the back) provides uninterrupted views of the 20- and 30-something singles enjoying the increasingly trendy Washington Avenue nightlife. If the chest-thumping electronica music and the shimmering disco balls weren't enough of a clue, stripper poles artfully scattered throughout the club emphasize that you've happened upon a dance club. Corset-clad cocktail waitresses circulate with trays and leather booths tucked against the walls provide quieter lounge areas.
