Only stopped for late drinks, we tried the cocktail of the day (with a lot of cinnamon as they like it here), and had one of the best mojitos ever. Prices are fine and music is nice albeit a bit loud.

The new location of this nightclub is in what seems to be an old parking lot. It definitely lacks charm and the music was not as good as I was expecting. I am not sure that Thievery Corporation owns it anymore, which might be why the quality has lapsed.

First of all... Make sure you want to get totally wasted, because unless you drink a lot and expensive drinks they will treat you as scum. Bouncer is a really rude person, waiters and waitress doesnt care about anything more than money and white people that look rich. stay away from this place.

Never made it past the door. My boyfriend and showed up after cocobongos on a Saturday night and were harassed at the door. When I started to talk to the bouncer I was placed in a headlock and wrestled to the floor before being punched in the face on the way out the front door. I've never had a problem... More

Well. Beautiful place, but honestly... The music sux big time. ... Sincerly, DJs playing at the same BPM, with Tracktor, playing the same thing over and over again. They are SO boring. Wake up. The music upstairs AND upstairs was basicly the same. Same BPM, same repetitive music, same Beatport stuff. Boring afterall ;) And usual drug house music. Zzzz... More

We were looking for a finer establishment, more age appropriate- no longer in our twenties didn't want to be kicking it with the teeny boppers. Venue is nice. Nice clientele. Downstairs basement bar with... More

I went to this place because I knew Walker and Royce would be playing, and to my surprise it was a pretty big place and neat decorations. A/C was a little bit too cold on the second level but everything else was fine. I would definitely come back on my second visit here! Good selection of music!

Great place to party, very chill and the party goes until the wee hours of the morning. (if I remember correctly, we left around 6:30) It consists of 2 different "areas", a lounge/club feel downstairs and a more open-air lounge upstairs. Overall the prices are in line with all the other clubs, however I feel that the service here takes... More
