I've gotta admit that I was expecting Slide to be a complete disaster from what I've heard and read, but I was pleasantly surprised after my experience here. The bouncer was no drama, which was a relief. It probably had a lot to do with the fact that I was the only guy of the 5 of us. This place clearly discriminates against a bad female to male ratio, and I feel like I have to subtract a star for that. Inside, the music was good, the ambiance, nice, the bathrooms, clean. I only hit up the bar once to ask the bartender if someone turned in my friend's ID. He was a little bit melodramatic when a glass was knocked over and shattered right by his arm (something I'm pretty positive I didn't do). He directed me to the coat check for lost and found. The girl there was very nice and helpful. We gave her a number to call if the ID turned up, and thankfully it did turn up the next day (although I think my friend called the club and not vice versa). Oh, and I went down the slide at the entrance just for kicks. I was expecting something epic, but the ride was no better than that of a slide you would find in a playground.

Wanna get blasted on the cheap before stumbling elsewhere? This is one of the better spots on a pitifully small list of decent bars in Center City. 23oz Yuengling in baseball bat glasses for three and a quarter. $9 long island ice teas in the same damn baseball bat glass. I watched the bartender pour it, definitely not stingy, definitely will wreck you. She said it's pretty gross, I agreed but really I was kinda despondent to the fact that it's something I shouldn't have during the workweek. Food? From freezer to fryer. However, you'll be too blitzed to care. Note: Don't waste your change playing Bohemian Rhapsody here, it's gonna get played at least 5 times during the course of the night, so pick something else.

Let's be real. Despite the "refurb" and the fact that they're trying to lure people into "Le Cercle" by name-association (after a popular Gangnam club), it's really the same shit, different look. Le Prive... oh the early days when the surfboard-chested 16 year-old K-town hoochies would hang from the gargoyles drunk off watered-down shots of anything. Date rape central. And honestly, any of the girls who have complained about "sexual harassment" here are full of crap. You don't go to a booking "night" just to "dance and hang out with your girls," you go to garner the attention of the ahjusshis who will pay for all your drinks and grope your ass after you get dragged over ("unwillingly," my f**king flat ass) by one of the sleazy waiters. Don't act surprised, if you don't know all this going into this club then you're in denial. Embrace it, or don't go at all. This is an Asian skin show and everyone who parties here has an appetite for ass (and there's actually nothing wrong with that, as long as you admit it). The guys are usually not the problem here... it's the girls (and I mean GIRLS, as in underage hos with madd attitude). It's a grill-fest as soon as you walk in- head-to-toe scans and salty-ass looks from every bitch wearing their Forever 21 knockoffs and pretending that they don't wanna be there. Ladies, it is a much better experience if you go with a group of your guy friends. They provide protection, and you can scan the crowd with them and help them pick out a conquest for the night. I used to take my dongsaengs here to treat them to underage eye candy for a night whenever they were feeling down (read: horny) and needed a confidence boost. But in my old age, I think I'm pretty much done with the crowded, sweaty atmosphere and the smell of vomit in the bathrooms. I think from now on, I'll just drop the fellas off and waste my time at Crown Bar until that place goes out of style too.

I first went to the Naughty Knight Lounge in the summer of 1974 -- before the elevated expressway was built.
We used to walk across the highway to the Hourglass lounge where a big-titted brunette was behind the bar. Got some of that the next night!
Then, you could walk out of the back door of the NK and head to the Surburban Lounge -- and if that wasn't fun enough, you could head over to the Wishing Well on the corner of Stumph & the Expressway.
I have visited the Naughty Knight many times over the years. The only thing that has changed is newer generations of neat people.

If you are looking for a neighborhood bar that is open ALL the time, like 24/7, this is the place for you. They have 2 pool tables, video poker, and some nice bartenders to boot. Easy to find, right over the river from downtown, on the Westbank Expwy. Give it a shot.
