I had no expectations going here. We had a GroupOn for half-off so I figured it would be a great deal no matter how the experience went. Although we had a reservation we were forced to stay at the bar for 30-45min before we were let into the room. Odd, but fine. Drinks are on the pricy side. Wine list would have been fine if they didn't have over half of the wines crossed off. Then when we went to order an available one, we were informed that that one was out too. Kind of upsetting. Dinner: You're sitting on giant beds with small low tables that slide over your feet. Problem is the table isn't big enough for 2 people to eat off of so you eat on your lap. First course we were given a latex glove to eat a salad out of a dog bowl. Interesting in concept but every bite tasted like latex and the salad was pretty awful. Second course was soup which was actually pretty good - no complaints. Main course was duck over a slaw - duck was good, slaw was pretty bad. Dessert was panna cotta with a sorbet and some type of herb. Problem is, it's hard to pick out a decretive herb when its dark, so you end up eating it and it leaves a horrible taste in your mouth. Shows: The acrobat was very cool - enjoyed that. The skit with two guys lathering themselves with nutella was very weird. Then the guy stripping off his clothes and pouring champaign over himself was so-so. The rest of the 'entertainment' was the servers dancing in pajamas. I was expecting A LOT more. And why all guys doing the shows? However, the music was very good. In closing: They included 18% gratuity for our party of 2 - very unprofessional. Still with half-off we were very disappointed. If the experience was less expensive I would have opted for 2 or 3 stars, but with the current prices, 1 star is appropriate for what we got.

Walked by here solo around 2am a few Fridays ago and the area outside was packed. Nobody was let inside during the 10-15 minutes I was waiting, until a girl who looked like a model came outside, pointed to me, and said, "him." I walked right in, and after giving mystery girl a hug and asking her name, she replied with a frantic, "Shit! You're not Rob!" As she walked back outside, I shrugged, wandered down the staircase, and proceeded to have a great time until close. Thanks, mystery girl, but you shouldn't have left so soon. Fun crowd, great DJ, and an awesome sound system. Rob, if you didn't get in that night, its probably because I've stolen your identity.

Koreans, they're so nice. While lounging at our $50 ladies table, my Korean friend gently informed me that I wasn't going to be "booked" because I was too tall and not Korean. Instead of telling me it was because I didn't win the genetic lottery, of course. For not winning the genetic lottery, this place was still good times. It's huge, the music is decent and there's ample room to shake it. If you have a vagina, $90 split between 4 others entails your own place to sit, a fruit platter, Crown and mixers. Not bad considering, it'd cost more elsewhere. I also loved that there isn't much fuss getting in, table or no table. Possibly a sign of the times though. I'd go again. If you're curious about this "booking" concept, skim through the reviews :)
