Sadly, this club was permanently closed in January 2015. It was great while it lasted, but there is not much more to say.

I went here with a group of girlfriends after having tapas at a nearby restaurant. I did not really know what a fondue club was. Well...it's chocolate fondue, fruit to dip into the chocolate, and they made all the drinks we asked for! Once we enjoyed our great "dessert" and drinks, we began to dance to a live band. It...

What cool place this is. The décor is very "hip" and the couches are comfortable. We specifically went to the HK because Al and the Allnighters were performing there. Small, cozy and fun. Loved the fondue for dinner. We tried the dessert fondue and when we got the bill we almost fell over. Next time, one or the other but... More

Do that many people like fondue...especially in boiling water. Not so great! But, there isn't a bad act on the calendar, and there is plenty of free parking. Large college crowd. Very friendly.

This place is a hidden Jewel great music and great fondue. The staff is about as friendly as could want, if you like live music and tasty mixed drinks go to the hip kitty.

Average food, average drinks etc. Nothing too special unless there is a great live band playing...only reason to go back. Everything else was so basic - wouldn't go back for the food or drinks...

A great place to go and enjoy an evening. Favorite to hang out with friends. Check the website for the bands that are scheduled to play. Fondue is good too! Easy parking.

The music is very loud, so give up any hope for real conversation, but this place did not disappoint. Live jazz music, swing dancing, and superb people watching. The fondue and drinks were very good; a bit on the pricey side, but not unreasonable.

This location is great for a night out with the girls (or a date with your special someone)! The ambiance is neat and mellow. The food and drinks are great, although the prices are not inexpensive. They often have life music inside and the outside patio available for those who want a quieter setting. Service is friendly!

I went with my brother who goes to school in Claremont. Paid $5 for a Stella, which is usual. Great band and a smoking patio with fireplace. It was my kinda juke joint. Great local hipster and rockabilly crowd.
