3.5 I've been the academy twice before coming to nightlife so I knew what exhibits to expect. Nightlife wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing either.. although there's a long line it goes by pretty quickly. Once you're inside you are welcomed by music from the dj's and †there are bars around so you can enjoy the exhibits. At nightlife, I was finally able to see the planetarium show which was pretty cool and informative. I'd recommend going to nightlife because you don't have to be surrounded by a bunch of kids on field trips and get to enjoy drinks and music as well. Plus, admission is pretty much half price. =)

I went to Luckie for a friend's birthday for the first time last weekend and after weighing the pros and cons, I figure it may be worth returning if I'm in the mood for sub-par food and mediocre music. Pros: 1. The layout is pretty functional and spacious. The VIP section upstairs is nice and open with a great view of the city and plenty of comfortable seating. 2. The prices are reasonable. My meal fell just under $15. 3. There was an okay helping of eye candy to look at. 4. The staff was friendly. Cons: 1. Much of the music was sorry. I was not feeling about 75% of the tracks they played, which is probably due to the fact that they broadcast live on the radio the night I went. I hate the radio. 2. The club became too packed. This is a problem. Greedy promoters need to learn to turn people down so the people already inside can actually have a good time without standing under someone else. 3. I could have passed on the food. 4. There were one too many "rats" there. I mean nasty girls with unappealing outfits, bad weaves, and no couth, dancing a little too "Magic City."

The Phoenix is alright, nothing spectacular. It gets ridiculously crowded and people wait in line to get in, but there's really not much to it. I prefer it on the afternoons for a nice Guinness and you can sit and talk to your friends instead of having to scream. I have attended the Eighties Night and it's sad that I know the words to all the songs.
