“Good but was dead”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

By all accounts this club should be great, but it was dead every single night we went - while Mandala next door was packed.

Great service, amazing decor, reasonable prices... But dead.

“Schöner Club,schlechter Service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Club looks really nice!
But the service was bad! The Club was empty and we were waiting 10min for our beers.
Then they wanted to charge use way more for the beer than its usual price.
Careful with the Lady who offers you Tequila shots and pulling your head against her chichis!
We didn´t really agree for the shots and she didn´t tell us that we have to pay for it but she just startet the ,,amusement'' (actually the tequila lady was ugly) and charged us afterwards 8 Dollar each person!
NEVER AGAIN!

“Small Dance Floor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Our friends and I arrived at this nightclub after hopping from another one. We were friendly greeted, and there was no cover charge. The music was great, hip, and mostly top 40s. Many of the locals enjoyed it so much they were dancing on the bar. It felt like a younger crowd, but we still had a blast. The bathroom was decent. There was also the option of paying 300 pesos for an all you can drink night.

I had fun here... The place was absolutely packed! People dancing everywhere, next to our table, in the walkway, and on the bar! Very fun to watch! Very friendly employees also :)

“Its OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2011

This is the 3rd bar/club we hit up on the Malecon on a Monday night.

We arrived and the doormen escorted us to a great spot. The table was next to the DJ booth and overlooking and the crowd. It was a mixed and energetic crowd. We had some MILFS from the Midwest shaking their thang on the bar tables. It was cool. The music was the same as Mandala...except that they mixed in a handful of reggaeton and 3 hip hop songs. Yea, I counted. I am a hip hop and R&B fan and I was waiting for those beats haha. Unfortuantely, the DJ picked some weird (in my opinion) tracks. He played Wiz Khalifa's Black and Yellow, Rihanna's Love The Way You Lie, oh and a bunch of Black Eyed Peas songs (doesn't really count lol). Then it was back to the usual Top 40, Pop, Dance stuff you would hear in West Hollywood.

This place is not as big as Mandala but it is still cool in its own way. I give it 1 more star because the DJ had a more diverse playlist.
