I used to love Spectators, and was there a lot for games and karaoke. I was there on Saturday, April 10, 2010 and witnessed something which will keep me from returning unless a certain bouncer is fired. First, at 1:40am, he ripped a drink out of the hand of a patron, spilling it all over myself. This happened immediately after he told the patron that he could finish his drink. Then, when approached by another patron about the incident, he immediately got defensive. I did not mind this- that is his job. Instead of escorting the patron out of the bar, though, he grabbed him BY THE THROAT and threw punches at him. The patron whose drink was ripped from his hand went over to break up the situation, accompanied by his girlfriend. The bouncer turned towards them, grabbed the girlfriend, pushed her out of the way, and started throwing punches at the male patron. It was my understanding that bouncers were supposed to prevent fights- not start them.
We were at Spectators with a group of about 25 people for karaoke. I personally know many other semi-regulars of Spectators. None of us will be back unless this bouncer is fired. If you do go, be cautious. I suggest staying away.
Pros: Great food, great atmosphere, great owners.
Cons: One bouncer who is dangerous
