Worst

Most awesome lights and sound system in town. Too bad the guy running the lights is either lazy or more interested in hooking up than working... Another neat feature is the Kryoge...

The energy is back! 6/23/2010

South Beach is back! The powers that be have been listening to the reviews...the music format has changed. They are now dropping in Hip Hop and Pop remixes...not the same old House all the time. Of course the Nitrogen drop is still so cool (literally!), and the drinks are stout. An old friend with a new "do!" Pros: Nitrous Drop and the new Video Screens Cons: Line at the door? more

Unprofessional and Rude Managment 7/26/2009

I like to go out every once and awhile to shake it on the dance floor. Unfortunately the staff and management of my hometown club is very rude and unprofessional. They were very unconcerned and down right rude when I left my credit card over night on accident. It was easier to just cancel the card so I would have to deal with them again. I have spent a lot of money in this place over the years and this experience makes me want to never go there again. Pros: Rude Staff and Managment Cons: Fun Atmosphere more

Stale 2/13/2009

This place used to be the place for my friends and I to go every weekend. We used to crave it! Now we've grown up and go on occasion, but man has this place got old. I hate going to the nasty sweaty Blur down the street but sometimes head there for their variety of music. If they could put more variety into the music then that place would be bangin like it used to. Overall though I'm over the scene here. Pros: Clean cool Atmosphere Cons: No music variety more

If you never gone, go atleast once. 7/2/2008

I was cool when it opened after the "accidental fire" burning of Heaven, but over time it has gotten old. It needs new life, maybe some minor things but something new to make it exciting again. It still is one of the best Dance Clubs in Houston though. Not a place I go often but fun to take my hags too from out of town. Pros: The CO2! Cons: Drinks are a little high! more

She ain't the same anymore 6/10/2008

Southbeach is so played out now. It was once a place to be but like anything else it never changed with the times. House music is dead,will they ever get it. not all g a y s want to hear that stuff all the time. Im so glad Blur is down the street. Blur plays all the current music like on the hip-hop station and pop station, I love sunday cause they play latin and hip-hop. Sundays at southbeach is not good anymore, they should just close it down or burn it down like they did to heavens! Yes Im that old to remember Heavens. Pros: restrooms are clean Cons: no one is there on fridays more

Awesome club for 25 and under 4/25/2008

Whatever happened to music for all of age drinkers where at anytime you could go out and hear a variety of music from 70's rock-n-roll to the newest hip-hop or dance music. Southbeach is only a place to go if you want to get drunk or high and just realy don't care about the music. It's always the same ole tired trance music, or some kinda of house music that you don't recognize. If you would like to cool off though, in the middle of the night, then just stand in the middle of the dance floor as they release a cool mist over the dance floor and anyone dancing on it. Southbeach has a WONDERFUL lighting, sound, and video system, I just think that a place like this should cater to people of all ages, after all it's normally the older people that have the money and will spend it. Pros: Audio/Video/Lighting/Dance Floor Cons: No variety of music more

go to blur its better, southbech has nobody anymore 3/2/2008

all i can say is sobe had its run, dj doesn't play what we want. go to blur just around the corner, its much better, they play rap and top40 music. plus its cheaper at blur to get in. southbeach is over price for sucky music Pros: it was cool like 3yrs ago Cons: just not fun anymore more

Club. . ."10"; Service. . . "0" 11/25/2007

I moved to Houston from Chicago 3 months ago. By now I am getting a little homesick for the Chicago nightlife of North Halsted and Rush Street. I went online and pulled up what appeared to be the most "happening" club in the Montrose area. . . South Beach. I was plesantly surprised by the decor, the crowd ( small as it was), and the music was exactly what I needed to hear. What shock to find is the level of ruddness by all of the staff (that we encountered). It started with the cashier at the door who, after we mentioned his less than savory attitude, informed us that if we didn't like his attitude now he could "kick us out " if it got any worse. This was before we even entered the venue. When we sat down at the bar, the manager just happened to be walking the floor. When I explained to him about our episode at the door his comment was that the cashier had a cold???? I still don't know what that has to do with the price of tea in China. Nonetheless, we went on and had a very nice evening( what was left of it). At 3:45am in this club that was supposed to be open until 5am, we were informed that the club would be closing for the evening by someone walking the floor with a microphone. When we mentioned the time he abruptly said ( on the mic by the way) "Just Go!" and walked into the DJ booth. As I said earlier I've only been in Houston for 3 months and if everyone was as rude, arrogant, and unfriendly as these people, I would not have moved. It really is a top notch club, they just need a staff adjustment. This is a customer service industry. Hello. Pros: Great Ambience Cons: Very Poor Customer Service more

Didn't get past the nasty drag queen at the door! 9/13/2007

I visited Southbeach new years eve, a year ago and found the club to be surprisingly progressive. The music was techno and pumping. The cheap drinks were good. I left feeling I wanted to return upon my next visit to Houston. Well, this time was another story. I arrived about 11:30PM on Saturday, 9/8 and was strapped with a wristband (before entering). I suppose this was to show that I was of age, although no one checked my ID. I proceeded to walk in only to be stopped by a nasty drag queen. I wasn't aware that there was a cover charge since I was already strapped with a wristband. (Wouldn't it make sense to put that on the patron after the cover charge was paid? it was like putting the cart before the horse). She/he was very unpleasant and made me feel foolish as though I were purposely trying to get in without paying. I didn't come to Houston to be bullied by a drag queen. I had a pocket full of cash to spend at this place but thanks to her/him, it was spent elsewhere. I won't be back! Pros: great techno music Cons: NASTY DRAG QUEEN AT THE DOOR more

An Amazing Night 9/5/2007

I was always told to check out South Beach and now having done so I can defiantly say I will return time and time again. Approaching the building you see towering Canary Palms which make you feel like you are in Miami?s South Beach. I felt like a VIP from the moment I dropped my car off in valet. Though the line looked scary (a good sign of a great club) it moved quickly. The first bar, I assume they call it the Martini Bar, was beautiful and made me feel like I was in a posh New York lounge. They had a glass chiller that ran the length of the granite bar which over looked a fine selection of premium liquors. It wasn?t until after my first drink I realized they had a even large part of the club through a set of red velvet curtains. This side of the club was the dance floor and more bars. Wow is all I can say! The most amazing lights, sound, laser light show and dancing I have ever had. They even had this ice jet system that blasts the dance floor with a cold fog cooling everyone down. This is a amazing place and I will be back. Pros: Ambience, Valet, and drinks Cons: That the night had to end more

Interesting place 8/28/2007

I went with my friend to check it out and it was a very interesting place. I belive in giving each place a try just to say I have been there. I actually liked it and think it was an interesting experince. The line is long to get in but you have to remember it is one of few after hours clubs. Im not a fan of places that charge covercharges but since this is a club it is accepted, its not just a bar but also a dance club. As you walk in you will have to sign an agreement not to drink if you are underage and also pay the covercharge. The large woman (wink) there is really nice but also keeps out anyone that looks like trouble makers. If you are a police officer you get free entrance with proper police ID. Once inside you see the bar with the frozen bar top runing all thru the bar. There are chairs and booths to sit at, if you get there early you might get one. The dance floor is huge and it is very crowded. The male dancers are funny and defenetly something to look at even if you dont want to. This is defenetly a place that has a lot of dancing and good for straight and not. One thing I didnt like was the barthrooms were really dirty and out of control. Pros: Dancing Cons: Dirty bathrooms more

AVIOD ON SATURDAY NIGHTS!!! WAY TOOOOO CROWDED 10/17/2006

WELL IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A NIGHTCLUB ON A SATURDAY NIGHT, THEN TRY TO AVOID SOUTH BEACH. THIS PLACE IS TOO CROWED FOR DANCING AFTER 11:30P AND A FEW OTHER THINGS IS THE BARTENDER SERVICE IS SLOWER THAN MOST PLACES BECAUSE OF THE OVER CROWEDNESS. I HAVE WAITED 9 MIN ON ONE BARTENDER FOR A CHEAP DRINK. BUT BECAUSE THEY WERE SO CROWDED THE SERVICE IS SLOW, UNLESS YOU KNOW THE BARTEDER, YOU WONT GET FAST OR AVERAGE SERVICE. IF YOU LIKE POP MUSIC OR RAP DANCE REMIXES THEN SOUTH BEACH IS NOT FOR YOU. THEY PLAY TECHNO ALL NIGHT. THE DANCING BOXES WHICH ARE THE BOXES YOU CAN DANCE ON IS WAY TOO CROWDED TO DANCE ON. THE LAST TIME I WAS THERE, I SAW SOMEONE NEARLY FALL OFF THE BOXES DUE TO CROWDED. THAT IS NOT SAFE DANCING ON IF THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE DANCING ON IT. THE BATHROOMS ARE TOO SMALL FOR A BIG PLACE. THE COVER CHARGE IS ALWAYS RISING, IT WAS $7 IN MARCH 06 NOW ITS $9 IN SEPT. AND ABOUT ONCE-A-MONTH THEY CAHRGE $20 TO GET IN THE CLUB WHEN THE REGULAR DJ IS NOT THERE. THIS IS JUST OUTRAGEUOUSLY AWFUL PLACE FOR A COVER CHARGE. PAY $9 TO BUY MORE ALCOHOL AND DANCE TO TECHNO MUSIC. THE BARTENDER SERVICE IS TOO SLOW ITS TOO CROWDED TO DANCE SAFELY. THE COVER CHARGE IS TOO EXPENSIVE. VALET PARKING IS TOO SLOW TO GET THE CARS BACK TO CUSTOMERS THE OWNER IS TOTALY MEAN TO CUSTOMERS. Pros: POPULAR BECAUSE CROWDED Cons: VALET PARKING, DANCING, BARTENDERS more

Mixed experience 9/30/2006

This club is a lot of fun if you are really into techno/trance music. The volume is WAY too loud, and my ears were ringing for more than 15 hours after we left the club. The dry ice jets are really nice, though, because with all the people in such a small place, it gets stuffy. The building is way too small for the crowd it attracts, and I am just about certain the amount of patrons exceeds fire code. It gets very hard to move around with so many people. The line to get in is long, but moves pretty quickly. The cover charge is over rated, but if you get in before 11pm, there is no cover. Bar service is above average. Even though it might take a little longer to get waited on, the bartenders are very friendly once they get to you. The drinks are ridiculously expensive. It wasn't what I thought it would be for my first experience, but after all, this is Houston and there is something out there for everyone. I don't even remember them announcing Last Call, and shortly after 2am someone came up and snatched our drinks out of our hands. There are a lot of hot guys in there, but they seem to be very stuck up and ostentatious. Definitely a meat fest going on in there, and it's survival of the fittest. This is definitely not my club of choice. Overall the experience was average. Nothing about the club really WOW!-ed me. Pros: Quick moving line, Good music, friendly bartenders Cons: Drink prices, music volume, too crowded more

Madonnarama 3/26/2006

I was very disappointed this pass weekend for Madonnarama. The club was OVER-CROWDED. You could not dance to get your groove on. You could not buy a drink. I waited at the bar for half an hour (seriously) to try to buy a drink. I was not even served. My friends and I had to leave the bar just to buy a drink. The fire code I am sure was in violation. Far too many people made this night a night to remember not to attend another Madonnarama at South Beach. Pros: Good music, Good DJ, Physically nice Cons: Too croweded, Special ticket prices, Barstaff SLOW! more

Houston's hottest nightclub 2/21/2006

South Beach is just like any other of the larger gay dance clubs around the country - some nights its absolutely magical and unforgettable, and some nights it seems like nothing but drama. Without a doubt though, this club is on a level above all the other clubs in Houston. First off, this is one of the ONLY clubs in the city that plays 100% actual DANCE music - 120-140 BPM tracks with vocals that you can find on the Billboard dance/club chart. No R&B or hip-hop ever. Second off, the light/sound system is amazing, and of course there's the infamous "cool jets" that spray dry ice on you once an hour. South Beach has lots of special events: holiday parties, "theme" nights, and top DJs from around the country. And finally, the guys (and girls) here are HOT - probably the best looking crowd in the city. Pros: great music/DJs, atmosphere, place to party Cons: parking, sometimes too packed more

IT WAS FABULOUS!! 11/20/2005

This was my first time to go to South Beach & I'm in love! As a straight woman it's so nice to go to a club & not be attacked by creepy men! Everyone was so nice, if someone bumps into you they immediately turn around & apologize unlike the people at most straight bars! I'm definitely coming back!! Pros: Inexpensive, Beautiful People, Great Dancing Cons: Valet Slow, Crowded Bathrooms more

First Timer 11/7/2005

I was in Houston for the birth of a great nephew. I live in Louisiana. I visited South Beach on Saturday night, and WOW i was very impressed. The music was great., alone with the service. I plan to return for the weekend, it is well worth the (5) hour drive for me. I have been home now for (3) days and have not stop talking about South Beach. Thank you again, for a great night in Houston. Sincerely, Brett Landry Pros: spaceious, clean, male dancers Cons: parking, weak drinks, dancing on boxes more

Editorial

  • The Scene
    Scenesters are flocking to this racy club for the inexpensive cover charges and the state-of-the-art laser light system. Upon entering, relax at the beautiful front bar and allow the scenes of adult videos flashing above on the flat screen video monitors to put you in the mood for a hedonistic evening. Off to the left of one of the two well-stocked back bars, male exotic dancers gyrate in front of a sleek, black water wall. On the circular dance floor, the Kryogen system blows arctic blasts of air on sweaty club-goers heating up the dance floor.

    The Draw
    Although it's primarily a gay club, there's a strong straight presence on Saturday nights. DJ Jimmy Skinner controls the dance floor with a hypnotic mix of Euro and progressive house.
