perhaps getting a little long in the tooth...certainly long past it's heyday as the splashy dance club on lower westheimer in the early 1980's before hiv changed a lot of lifestyles. numbers is always fun, and the more people the better. cover tends to fluctuate...so be prepared to spend between $2 and $10 or so to get in. i think the manager sometimes ups the cover to make up for an otherwise bad week. the place could use some sprucing up, but hey it's dark anyway and that's all part of the ambiance. one can only wonder with awe what went on in the concrete block toilet stalls in days of old. really, anyone's welcome here - tatooed goths, preppies, old timers, old rockers...young punks and yes, sort of weird folks too. the bar tenders are friendly, the dj shows are usually terrific, and the dance floor gets filled quickly with folks who love to shake to the groove. if that's not your thing, you can sit in the sideline seating, or visit an upstairs lounge. a word of warning: this place has 'character', it's not dangerous or anything. but if you're looking for a sherlock's-like experience, you'd be best advised to stay clear. parking is on the street though they do have a lot one street over. if you come early, street parking is a good choice but be sure you're legal (read the signs, dummy!)or you may end up getting towed. no atm machine and they don't accept plastic, so bring cash.
Pros: great dance floor, upstairs lounge, great for people-watching
Cons: gritty, may look 'dangerous', only takes cash, cover tends to fluctuate at manager's will
