I really like this place. I first started coming here a couple of years ago, recommended by a friend to check it out. When I go, I usually pay $5 for cover from a guest list, but I think cover can go as a high as $20. The valet is like $18, but it's not too bad since I usually go in a group and we just split the cost. There has been times where I had to wait in line, and other times I didn't. I try to get there early to avoid standing outside forever. I've never had an issue with getting in at the door though. I loveee the decor inside. Especially the waterfall-looking wall. I also think coat check is convenient. There are plenty of places to sit if you choose, and they also have VIP sections available. The dancefloor is also a good size too. The crowd and music is definitely diverse, so thats a BIG plus in my book. People are usually friendly for the most part, and just want to have a good time. The drinks are kind of pricey as expected, but mixed well. After a few drinks during one occasion I walked up to the plastic window where the DJ spins out of and asked him to play a certain song. They typically don't do that at a place like this, but I was feeling kind of bold. He had no problem playing a song for me, so again they earn kudos with me for not having rude DJ's. They also have (or should I say had?) a gogo dancer behind this white plastic wall with pink lighting inside. It would just give off a shadow of a girl dancing. The last time I went the wall was no longer up, so you could actually see the dancer. I would've expected her to have on killer AMAZING clothes, but she didn't. So I definitely think they should change that-either put the wall back up or hire better looking dancers (sorry to sound mean). Overall, always a good time, and I will continue to go!

I had dinner here on Wednesday night for the 1st time and it was the worst experience I have had at an Ethiopian restaurant. It took 25 minutes to get my food although most of the customers that were there were drinking and when my food was ready it sat at the counter while other customers were breathing over it as they were waiting to pay their bill. The chicken dish I selected tasted nothing like Ethiopian food. I took one bite and that was it. I had the side greens and the salad and left the pile of chicken sitting. I will never go back to eat there again. The owner was nice and we chatted for a bit because she knew I was from Ethiopia. I would not recommend the meat dishes here and the service has to improve.
