What a waste of time, there was no one there and they still wanted to charge an entrance fee and then double to go upstairs, when there was no one there. VIP section, also empty. Couldn't get service. What a waste of time and money.

Who charges $20 at 7.30pm to go upstairs when there is no one upstairs. I was so incensed I argued with the big rude bouncer. Eventually I shamed him in to using HIS OWN MONEY to buy us a drink because even he admitted it was embarrassing. See the other reviews? DO NOT GO TO THIS BAR. GO TO LITTLE... More

It was so bad that I will rate a "0" star - but that is not possible, so I have to put 1 star. This past Saturday May 16, 2015 I went with a few friends (guys and girls) and they wanted to charge $10.00 for admission. I refused, so I left. Then we came back about an hour later,... More

If you are into tons of great dance clubs, beautiful women and a friendly atmosphere there is tons of it in the Gaslamp district. We even snuck in an Astros game!

Embarrassing as it is, I found out last night that I'm "not pretty enough" for this place. That's okay, we took our money elsewhere and had a blast. I'm not a big fan of paying someone to make me feel worthless. My friends experienced equal treatment (both male and female), so at least they're equal opportunity offenders.

I went there for a friends party and was treated very poorly by a racist doorman & owner. They let everyone in front of us inline inside the club for free who happened to be white. When it was our turn they said we had to pay for each of us to get in. The bouncer became very nasty and... More

I attended this establishment on Halloween for a pub crawl. I witnessed the bouncer take multiple shots, which would be cool if he could handle his liquor. He also pocketed money instead of putting it in the cash box, which the other bouncer was doing. He then made a racist comment about Latinos and tried to charge us money to... More
