Attraction details
Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

All I can say is this is has to be one of the top 2 place's in ac if not number1 for sure close second ;) this place is really taken the show theme in ac to a whole new level whether you're on a date and want to take your misses out you will not be let down by any means even better if your solo and want to be entertained be sure to make tao your first stop on your list they have a great menu to serve food that will go toe to toe with any restaurant in angeles. If the shows are not your type grab your date head up stairs to level 3 ultra club were you can dance and party the night away.
Seriously this place has it all no where else in ac can offer you this beautiful women great food great service and a disco...... no were else offers a 1 stop shop tao has set standard for entertainment in angeles city.

Okay you won't have any slot machines or other games of chance like Vegas but you will be entertained more than any other place in Angeles City almost as though you were attending one of those large Vegas casino performances, just a little smaller. I so enjoyed my visits to this place.

I want to point out that I am in no way related to, affiliated with or connected to anyone in this establishment. I have to point this out because I loved this place and how I was treated there and my review is going to reflect this in the most glowing of terms..

Formerly the Forbidden City, the club now under new ownership and new management, is so very well designed and continues to evolve under the visionary leadership of the new owner and his new manager, two of the very nicest people you will ever meet anywhere, ESPECIALLY in a nightclub. These two first class, and I mean FIRST CLASS individuals are what makes the heart of this club beat. Their style with their employees is as gracious as it is with their customers, creating an almost family feeling among the staff which seems to overflow to every customer that enters the place. You may think you're a stranger to them when you enter but you will leave feeling like you a part of something really special.

Before I continue I should mention that having gone to this club over a two week period almost every night, I had a chance to really get to know these guys while there. The reason why? Both Joe the owner and John the manager will come over and introduce themselves to you. They may even ask if they can join you and engage you in conversation. They are really VERY interested in your perception of the club, of the wonderful employees that work there, the performances, the works. They seem to be on a constant quest to make this place better. But most of all they will make you feel welcome and appreciated.

When entering you will find yourself surrounded by some of the most beautiful and tastefully dressed women in this town. EVERYONE is sooooo friendly and welcoming!!! The club itself is very well designed with multi-tiered seating on the first floor so that every seat is the best seat in the house. The interior design is very tastefully and artistically done. There's also second floor seating which overlooks the stage which I can't really comment on because I've never made it past the first floor.

They are in the process of building a third floor disco but for now if you really want to dance, in between the best choreographed dance routines you will find in this town, they have sort of free style dancing by some the dancing girls on stage where you can dance in front of the stage and in some instances even be invited up on stage to dance with the girls. Okayyy, yes I did once.....maybe twice.....maybe more. :-).

Speaking of those highly choreographed performances, their professional dancers are not good, they are grrrrreaat!!! There are a number of different, excellent performances but there are some that involve these absolutely gorgeous dancers hanging from curtains and some with poles in which these ladies are performing acrobatics that would be worthy of Cirque Du Solei, SERIOUSLY!!. Being a former gymnast, I can tell you that some of the power moves these ladies do are amaaaazingly athletic as well as aesthetically stunning. One titled Sky Dance was performed by a group called Dynamic Dancer and is a must see! I have met the team of choreographers and congratulated them all because what they have done is to create a true work of art in motion with ALL of the dance routines.

They also have some terrific vocalists. There was a soloist that will knock your sock off. She is a star. There were also vocal groups that were very good with accompanying dancers.

There is a range of specialty drinks that is wide and creative. My favorite was, this spectacular flaming drink that is a multi-level assortment of liquor and liqueurs that is as delicious and visually captivating as it is potent. .

All in all I don't know what is your reason for coming to Angeles City but I can honestly say that Tao alone is a good reason to visit. As another reviewer pointed out, there is an element of sleaze and girlie bars in AC. All I can tell you is that Tao is soooo, far from that. It's a place you would feel perfectly comfortable taking your wife or girlfriend but single men seem to dominate and enjoy it the most. If you go alone, you will not feel alone and will not feel lonely. It is not just a step above the rest of the entertainment in AC, it is a monumental leap above the rest. You will definitely NOT be disappointed.

Among the myriad of girlie bars down Walking Street, Tao stands out as different. Of course there are the usual array of girls on stage aimlessly swaying but unususlly, they are all fully clothed. No bikinis or tacky outfits in this bar, but what does make it different is that these girls occasionally make way for well choreographed dancing girls who put on an entertaining show. Another welcome break in a city of sleaze.
