This venue was a little hot but hey it's MExico and great for techno, tech house and house music! Gave off a great vibe! Bouncers were cool and the bar was fairly priced!

Everybody raves about this place, I didn't! No special whatsoever. Expensive like hell and they make you wait until you "deserve" to be inside and inside is lame, the service sucks and even bartenders are irritated by the waiters who are unable to order a drink correctly. Once again, waiters charge whatever they see fit so it is better to... More

The setup is pretty cool in that they have a club, a terrace, and a lounge. However, this place was highly unorganized when they were busy. Drink prices were OK and the atmosphere was Ok as well but I just dont think it was as put together as it should be for a unique set up.

This is a very cool place to dance if you enjoy electronic music... Love the furniture and the retro feeling you get! The Terraza which is the top floor is great because you feel the breeze of the ocean as you dance... Some nights may be to crowded but is worth visiting it!

This place is awesome, each of the floors are unique and each more impressive. Huge variety on drinks and they put on an amazing light show. Definitely have to check it out.

It was free to go in, the decoration is very nice. it was pretty cold in the club room so we spent most of the time at the roof bar, although the music was better at the club room. The drinks were overpriced and they could definitely be improved..

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.
