This review is a little delayed, but better late then never. A friend of mine invited me to The Compound a few Friday's ago for a performance by Teyana Taylor. (Yes, the infamous nipple action performance) It was a chance to check out a new spot & party in VIP with her crew. I'm down!! I arrived early and thought maybe I was in the wrong spot. I have only heard of this place by radio and was surprised to see that Friday nights are "Girls of the Night" as in, lesbians & their lady friends night. The ladies were hot even though the club wasn't very crowded. Their outdoor areas were closed off due to heavy rain. But the club does have a very nice ambiance to it. The dark purple, pink hue lighting with white walls makes the club feel sexy. They have girls in lingerie dancing kind of like go-go dancers. It was cute if you like go-go. The VIP is a little small but separated by a glass type of railing/wall. I like how the VIP wraps around the perimeter of the club. They do need to get better control over who's handing out VIP bands tho. I overheard a birthday girl complaining really hard that people were claiming to be on her list for VIP and getting bands even tho they weren't on her list. That could be an issue. The drinks were good & overpriced. But still good. I only needed 2 drinks & I was good. But that's what it should be if you're paying $12 for Henn & Coke. The music was so so. There was a mixture & like a lot of people said, the music got better later in the night. I believe the DJ was also playing tracks streaming from YouTube...ehh NO! Parking was free if you parked half a block away and walked back in gravel. Not fun in heels. But it saves you $20 from the closer lot. There doesn't seem to be much of a dress code either. There were 2 chicks in sweats, a beater and dunks. Maybe because it was lesbian night, I dunno. It was pretty casual tho which could work out in both ways. Overall, I managed to have a really good time. I'd probably try them again when it's not raining so I can see how the outdoor area really looks.

The key to a good sushi place is a chef that really knows how to buy fish. The owner came and talked to us for a while, and talked about how he selects the fist, which fishes he will and won't buy, etc. His knowledge and care really show off in the food. We got the sashimi platter, and it was all absolutely delicious. I will definitely be going back.
