“The most interesting nightlife.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

If you are looking or the most interesting nightlife in Columbus Ohio then Onyx Dance Lounge is the right place for you. It’s a place in Upper Arlington where people go to watch fun dancing and listen hip hop music throughout the night. On last Saturday night I went to a local dance club to catch good music but when we entered the dance floor, we found few naughty guys who were just walking by and giving us dirty looks. We left the club and decided to go to another hip-hop club which was in Arlington Entertainment Complex. As soon as we entered the place, we were thrilled to see such a welcoming crowd. It was probably the best banging music we’ve ever danced at a night club. We really spent a good time over there. Since I’m headed to Worthington in next month, I’m so disappointed that I would not be able to hit this place again for next few months.

“Dangerous crown”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2010

Several shootings have occurred here. Management thinks having a dress code will stop the shootings, but it hasn't yet. While the neighborhood is safe and quiet, the patrons of this club are not. Avoid this area after dark.

“Attracts a very niche crowd”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2009

The Onyx is part of the expanded Arlington Cafe. Back in the day, the Cafe was a great bar and its crowd was a fairly representative of the surrounding area. However, it expanded and added the back sports room area (which is nice) and then Onyx, which is a big dance floor in a third, separate room. Since the addition of Onyx, the crowd has changed and is now very niche. The sound system in Onyx is serious--the bass is deep and loud enough to vibrate various protuding appendages. They also skirt anti-smoking laws with a "covered patio" between the main Cafe room and Onyx, which causes both the Cafe and Onyx to have quite a bit of smoke. We tend to avoid the Arlington Cafe/Onyx as a result of all these changes.

“Onyx, The Hotest Dance Club in Columbus”

Onyx is Columbus’ newest, hottest and most modern dance club. Onyx is just one division of Arlington Entertainment Complex. Onyx recently opened in July of 2008. Onyx utilizes state of the art sound and lighting technologies. Onyx also features VIP rooms for your private party.

The club is classy, fun, and a great place to spend a night with your friends to celebrate your birthday, bachelor or bachelorette party. You and your friends can enjoy a night out with no worries because Onyx is located in a safe neighborhood, with free and well lit parking.

If you want to take a break from dancing or want to have a relaxing night check out the beautiful courtyard patio connected to Onyx. Everything to have a fun and entertaining night out is here at Onyx. Onyx is the place to be! Be sure to check Onyx out tonight!
