Music- Usually top 40 and some popular techno songs. The DJs change up so the music can be really good or really bad. My worst experience was when they started playing a good song and changed it after 10 seconds. Not cool! My best experience was when I couldn't get off the floor because the music was just right. Crowd- Can get extremely crowded to the point you can't move. Nice to have a lot of people but there is a point when there is too much. There can be a mix of crowds but there are those creepy old men. Just go with your friends to have fun, not look to look a specific other. Drinks- Are not cheap but they are good. The bartenders are really nice especially the ones near the stairwell next to the dance floor. Dress code- No sneakers. Wear nice shoes so you will be guaranteed to get in. Dress to impress. Under 21- I wouldn't bother, they are pretty strict here. I'm 21 and they wouldn't accept my expired license even with my expired new temporary license. I had to run home to get my passport. Dancers- The GoGos are so good especially the Asian girl Kym and her blonde dance partner. They know how to get the crowd going. Mad talented! Special Guests- They always have someone there. This year Jason Derulo, Mario Lopez, Shontelle, etc... Why 4 stars? Compared to other nightclubs, Estate is one of the best places to go.

I am giving it 4 stars because the bouncers make you wait outside even if the place is empty, I was totally turned off by that. On to the good part, best lemon drops in town, the decor is FABULOUS, the DJ was off the hook. I had a great time celebrating with friends for a birthday party.

I like! As a friend said when we walked in, "I think we just paid $25 to see a light show!"--well, yeah! The lights were pretty groovy. The DJ that night was DJ Ted, I think, or something like that. Either way, the beats were great. With a crowd that was fun and un-self-conscious, Cielo came across as a place to just have a good time (which is what clubs were supposed to be, right? before all the crazy social-climbing sht, no?). Needing some refreshments after an indeterminate amount of time spent bouncing around the dance floor, we go for a couple of shots at the bar, which after tip came to roughly $15/shot (unless I forget how much we drank). "say huh what dis be expen$ive!" (drunk thoughts whilst signing receipt). That said, shots were good. Since it was June and the weather was nice, the small outdoors space was open and a great spot to get some fresh air and have a conversation. So in total, Cielo pretty much had everything... good crowd, tunes, drinks, spaces, and lights (don't forget the groovy lights!)
