Bought a ticket for $28 to see a popular group perform. The bouncers scanned my ticket and my friend's ticket, then denied us entry because we looked "too fucked up". We were completely sober/clean and proceeded to argue with them which of course got us now where as the bouncers are "too cool" to reason. Trying to get our refund back which i doubt will happen...

Nowadays there are very few things that I allow to keep me up till 4am when I have work @ 7. Avenue happened to be one of them a few nights ago. I arrived around 12 and planned on staying only 2 hours. ha. Wass was surprisingly friendly and introduced himself to each individual in our group. He walked us inside to a grand entrance with open ceilings that go up to the 2nd floor. The interior is gorgeous. We were seated in an area that gave us a ton more space than clubs usually give, in the dimly lit room upstairs. The hostesses were all gorgeous and extremely friendly, making us new drinks before we could even finish the one we were holding. The crowd. Now this is where Avenue loses some points for me. There was a definite creep factor downstairs. Far too many older "Power Men," in their expensive suits with greasy hair and red faces, feeding women one third their age as much booze as their livers could handle. Of course this goes on everywhere, but it made up 75% of the crowd downstairs and thats a bit much for me. I was happy to be upstairs where it was less crowded, with much younger patrons. I sipped and danced the night away- music was good and got better as the night went on. The violinist kicked ASS. I loved her. Needless to say I did not accomplish my goal of heading home by 2:30, but it was well worth the misery the next day.

i went here for dinner before going to the Fillmore for gig .. i was full of excited energy but knew i needed to eat something. There was a band playing bluesy jazz ( if i am allowed to call it that ). It was very loud ... but good none the less! We ordered a big platter as we didnt have long to eat .. and there was a bit of a wait .. but we were informed of that when we sat down. The food was delicious .... spicy .. but really tasty .... the restrooms i seem to remember were a little nasty but you cant always have everything !
