Escape to the '80s – Lounges replaced dance clubs, but not the original dance club of Houston. All ages is really ALL AGES here. Parents, grandparents, and Goth kids all laughing and getting a work out on the dance floor on a Friday night. Drinks are served in plastic cups and a little on the weak side.
Large screens play the videos of yesteryear and the fog drop always cools down the crowds.
Go with a large group of friends and you will have more fun.
Don't wear nice shoes or they will get mucky.
Worst place for kids – The police working there and security are not only stupid they are rude. They kicked out a girl there last night who was leaving and was outside when the cop asked her a question. When she did not answer right away she was tackled, her phone thrown to the ground and then the lazy bouncer watched someone steal it. Her mom showed up and they were still jerks and charged her (even though she was behaving) with PI. Watch out kids the creeps are on the prowl..especially the gross woman cop.
Must or Bust? Fabulous. – When it's good, it's really good. The first time I went there, I actually heard Pulp, Suede, AND Blondie, but never ever since. There are certain songs they play every single time, for instance, the NY song with Robo-Cop video or Headhunter by Front 242. Hilarity ensues. Pros include a lot of space to dance and no 'tude. No pretentiousness. I only wish they would switch up the repetitive music and throw on some Smiths, or Cult, or anything different. The drinks are no joke dee-lish and the bartenders make up for the occasional boring DJ moments. A gem in Houston ;) Very well air conditioned, good sound, lights are good, all around thumbs up; they just need to mix it up a little musically and also perhaps fix the toilets.
favorite club in the houston area! – I started going to numbers wayyyy back and it just so happens some of my best memories so far were in that place. I think it's pretty much impossible not to have fun unless you're just totally sober, in which case you'd probably just be a little freaked out. You find all types of people there so you defiantely have to be a tolerant, but I think that's what makes it so much fun. The music is amazing, drinks are cheap, and everyone is so friendly. You definately have to experience at least one night at numbers.
a houston classic – perhaps getting a little long in the tooth...certainly long past it's heyday as the splashy dance club on lower westheimer in the early 1980's before hiv changed a lot of lifestyles. numbers is always fun, and the more people the better. cover tends to fluctuate...so be prepared to spend between $2 and $10 or so to get in. i think the manager sometimes ups the cover to make up for an otherwise bad week. the place could use some sprucing up, but hey it's dark anyway and that's all part of the ambiance. one can only wonder with awe what went on in the concrete block toilet stalls in days of old. really, anyone's welcome here - tatooed goths, preppies, old timers, old rockers...young punks and yes, sort of weird folks too. the bar tenders are friendly, the dj shows are usually terrific, and the dance floor gets filled quickly with folks who love to shake to the groove. if that's not your thing, you can sit in the sideline seating, or visit an upstairs lounge. a word of warning: this place has 'character', it's not dangerous or anything. but if you're looking for a sherlock's-like experience, you'd be best advised to stay clear. parking is on the street though they do have a lot one street over. if you come early, street parking is a good choice but be sure you're legal (read the signs, dummy!)or you may end up getting towed. no atm machine and they don't accept plastic, so bring cash.
eccentric...league of its own – I too...like many of you started "sneaking out" and and saving my lunch money to go to #'s on Wed nights when they had nickle beer. Yeah...guess that was some years ago. Of all the wild times I've had and all the party places I've been too...my most entertaining, memorable night out was at #'s with my girls ...smashed out of our minds. Its a bit dark...and scary at times....but the music is second to none and you "can dance if you want..you can leave your friends behind." Friday nights are fabulous and you'll hear old tunes from Front 242, Nitzerebb, Smashing Pumpkins, Delerium and some good ole Cobain...Nirvana. Numbers rocks and its so much fun to go after you have your buzz...then you're not worried about being to "pretty" and having the rough, black nailed goth chics pull your hair. i don't think the goths really frequent #'s on Friday nights. I don't fit the #'s mold anymore....but I still feel so freakin good when i go. I love the all of the different types of people that go....last time we went I saw a 60 yr old man in a patent leather thong with a spiked collar walking on a leash. Had I not been "tipsy' this would have been disturbing but nonetheless....you can't help but own the dance floor when Wes starts doing his thing. Its cools to see the same bartenders who remember me from "back in the day.' You don't feel old until you hear Beatie Boys and realize.....damn..that song is 15 years old. Love it!

The Best of the Worst. – For me as a long time #'s goer (been going since is was 15) its kind of like that place where you go "Wow, I still come here?" but you never want to leave. Fridays is the night I go, 80'sindustrial goth and some hipister music they play a good mix and keep it semi-fressh. I dont care much for the people but I've been some good friends there and once a numbers chick, always a numbers chick.
No BS – Being a fan of the eighties, I came here on two occasions for eighties night. I like it becuase it plays good music.
The club's motto says it all: "No Dress Code, No Waitresses, No Valet and No Attitude." – In Short
This lower Westheimer legend built its reputation on being a place where everyone can settle in for a cold drink and hot music. A cranking sound and light system, manned by Houston's top DJs, makes up for the dank interior. Music varies depending on the night, and the club has established itself as a venue for emerging and established acts. Bands like REM, the Stray Cats, Sheryl Crow, Oasis and Sevendust have rattled the rafters.
