Thank you Ruby Skye for a great night. You guys are one of my favorite places to go when I feel like having a good time in the city. My favorite thing about this place bar none is their sound system. Music hits hard and is sharp. It really lets you feel the music here. They have a lot of headlining DJs here and last night was Rabbit In The Moon. His music was off da' hook. The floorplan is a wide open floor downstairs and a smaller room upstairs. The decor is fashionable and the pictures on the wall makes me feel like they are watching me. Drinks here are reasonably priced and the bartenders know what they are doing. Sometimes its a big sausage fest in here and random dudes dancing flamboyantly gay, but I am willing to overlook that for the good music.

I used to go to clubs quite a bit, usually to Compound and then The Velvet Room. I never made it to eleven50, but finally made it to Opera. In my opinion, this is the club to go to in Atlanta. The interior is beautiful and they give you real options in regards to how you want to waste your money on a weekend night. You can dance in the main room, chill out on the deck or (gasp) salsa dance in the back?! I don't know what the hell it is about bathrooms in clubs, but of course there are not enough. Clubs could make so much more money if the would get any kind of handle on the intake and outtake economics. How can we make more money if people can't get to the bar to order drinks? How can we make more money if people spend most of their night standing in line to pee? Questions for the ages, but they all do it and this one is no different... thus the 4 stars. Better than the rest, but still not good enough. In sum... you want to get all gussied up and go pretend you're a VIP and hot stuff? Just take a wad of spendin' cash and head to Opera. Tip: If you're on a so-called "VIP Guest List," let me make this clear... you are not only below VIP, you are below average-customer status because you are not paying to get in. Get there by 10 or you'll just stand in line only to have them say "sorry - we close this line at 11, now hand over $20 to get in."
