“Funny, but keep your eyes open!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Enjoy this disco if you want: is very very big, full of pretty girl, with nice music and good drink, but BE CAREFUL: if you are here searching for girls to know and spend time with, you're in the wrong place!!!

Girls (very, very beautiful girls) are probably part of the staff, and their work is talk with men turists and make them spend money in drinks with the illusion to go to bed with them. They only want your money! So don't talk with them (it will be difficult, i know) because you are at high risk. Same Russian man would also came to you and punch you because you're talking with their wife.

We've been here three times and see always the same girl, in group of two or three, going up and down stalking for other men to steal.

Beware also from the bouncers, They have often strange behaviour and you'll feel not safe.

So this place is good if you want to have fun with your friends, but no more! Go here if you want, but keep your eyes open!

“Poor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Went to this club with their corrupt bouncers, got in a fight with 6 of them, they wanted to steal my money, they even punched my gf for no reason.i fought back. i think they the bartenders slipped something our drinks cuz we started feeling wack after a couple.then after the fight they kicked me out of the club and pepper sprayed me thinking i was drunk and wont remember anything.watch out for your drinks when they are making it for you...later on in the week. another guy i knew went to the same club and got his face smash up and had to go to the hospital... no life bouncers.go and enjoy somewhere else

“Good club!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

We had a lot of fun there! The club is about 6-7 rooms on 3 floors and you can find a lot of different kinds of music. The drinks and the entrance are cheap too

“Terribly expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

If your in Latvia and want to party, there are so many nice places than the much hyped club essential. The staff is far from friendly and the prices of drinks are extremely expensive compared to other clubs. The music is ok, as it offers several rooms with different styles.
