Hey psssst! Earth to Susan! There's this great club just a few blocks from your house!! It's a refreshing feeling to discover a new gem after 4.5 years of living in the same neighborhood. You get all cocky and think you've hit every cool spot in a 10 block radius. But guess what? You're just a normal person that's got shit to do and can't visit every place you hear about it. People have been telling me about this club for what feels like a decade but I figured a club is only as good as the people you're with. But that's not true with this club (I was with good people, don't get me wrong!). The DJs were spinning some solid beats and when that happens, the true dancers come out to play. I don't care where I'm at or who I'm with - as long as there are some amazing dancers around me, I'm going to have a great time! Everything about the atmosphere and vibe of this club attracts the dancers and keeps the douchebags at home. Big open space, big speakers, big DJ stage. As a bonus, they have two big bars that never got crowded. This place allowed me, a girl, to shake my ass all night without guys lurking and throwing out their best pick-up line. And that, my friend, deserves five stars.

The first time i was at 181 i was with about 30 people and only there for around 20 minutes. I thought it seemed cool and decided to go back. The second time i went i had to high tail it on outta there as quick as an Irish rugby player can chug a pint!! Friends convinced me to try it a couple more times and after having to wait outside for almost an hour i swore the place off! The crowd is just nasty - guys with slicked back hair and silk shirts with girls wearing close to nothing thanks to their cheap too small forever21 get up. If you like to be rubbed up against on the dance floor and feel like you're in a nasty strip club, this is the place for you! The cover becomes $20 after 11 pm - id pay $50 to sit at home instead!!

i went here with some friends and wasn't impressed. usually i can have fun anywhere, but i couldn't get into this place... not my crowd. on this particular night is full of wannabe hipsters. everyone was packed in and jumping up and down (is that a new form of dancing?) making it one big sweaty basement. blech. or maybe it was the band playing that night that annoyed me... screeching high pitched music making me cringe. who knows. the only thing that saved the night was all those Fernet shots and the company i was with.
