Went here for a friend's birthday last Saturday. Went to the downstairs area, called "Parlour" which has its own separate entrance in the rear. It was full on Russian night, with some people we know DJing and the crowd probably 90% Russian. No cover, and a $10 parking lot right across the street. It was a fun time with awesome music, but it is a tiny packed area downstairs with almost no room to move around. Felt like I was pushing past people all night. We ended up staying only about an hour because of this. Went upstairs and it was a hiphop night, not really our scene so we went back down to squeeze through the crowds some more. Big plus - a Kettle One & tonic was only $8. Aight, but probably won't be back unless going there for friends.

I really don't see the appeal. Went there on a Saturday night and it was packed; there was music blasting but the dance floor wasn't really happening. I ordered a rum and coke and received a plain coke. It gets two stars because there was no cover charge, but all in all this place was a totally forgettable experience.

Where to go for a business dinner? Oh, I know! Being the Sex in the City fan that I am, a must try is certainly Tao. Upon arriving, my co-worker and I sat in the bar area while waiting for our guest. The drinks were fabulous. One question though. Why must martini's be made all the way to the very top of the glass? Spillage is inevitable. I want to enjoy my drink, not wear it (hint hint to all you bartenders out there). Once our guest arrived, we were brought to our table upstairs. The view was wonderful. The giant buddha, along with the ability to people watch on the lower level crowd made this a perfect table. The food was fantastic, albeit overpriced, but definitely fantastic. I did not try the sushi, but heard it was delicious. We all ordered desert as well, to see what type of creations would be brought. My co-worker ordered the gigantasized fortune cookie. It was fabulous! Even the fortunes come in super size. I ordered the banana pudding. It was deeeeeelicious. Wow. Big fan of this restaurant, though it's definitely a go once in a while kind of place due to the price tag. A must try for splurging!
