“Dance Club”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

The music was great- the bouncers were OK...it's Orlando dude chillax. The crowd is super mixed and veeerrry eclectic- but friendly and fun.

I think our stay of 45 mins was more than enough. Not a huge crowd so if you love to dance and have space this place is for you.

“Staff Couldn't be More Rude”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The Groove was one of the worst club experiences I have ever had. I was there with a bunch of collegues and we decided after a day of meetings to head to the Groove. We went in around 10pm and the place was dead. We decided to stay anyways and get bottle service at one of the vip tables as the bouncer said it would pick up. Our waitress was great and provided excellent service. However, the good ended there. One of my colleagues went to request a song (as the place was still empty) from the DJ. He was really nice and played it right away. The manager then came and kicked our colleague out because apparently it is against their policy to request songs (a rule that wasn't posted). Our waittress stuck up for our friend and asked the manager to let them back in. At that point the manager decided to kick our whole group out. We had paid over $300 for bottle service (in addition to the $20 per person cover) and hadn't drank any of it yet. The manager couldn't have been more or a jerk and basically kicked us (the only customers in the club) out for no reason. Will never return and have lodged official complaints with CityWalk.

“Look for drink specials and vouchers to enter free”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

There was plenty of people dancing by 10pm, and a regular selection of dance music. They did $2 shots every half hour which we stuck too as the drinks are pricey. Good vibe!

“Nice venue just off of Universal City Walk”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We attended a private party there and really enjoyed the venue. There are nice rooms upstairs to give a quieter feel but still allow you to enjoy the music. The food onsite was very good and their are great acoustics.

“Clean and Nice”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Nice and clean, including the bathrooms.
Only thing we got tired of was the repitiion in the music. Little too techno in the beat that seemed to never change so we left and went to The Latin Quarter to mix it up. I was expecint more dance music. Other than that we had a good tim.
