Empire was the hottest club in Sacramento, and I must admit that I had some good times there, but recently it has dropped a few notches on my list. The reason I rated Empire "Good" on this review is because they have eased up too much on dress codes and who they let into the club. They used to be very strict on dress code and now it seems like they will let anybody in and this in turn correlates with the quality of the patrons and lowers the overall enjoyability of the club. Just recently there has been a lot more fights at the club and more occurances of guys disrespecting women who are there with their boyfriends or spouses. The staff at this club have also become less nice, and more cocky. However, the layout of the club is desireable because it is much like the clubs in the larger cities such as San Francisco and Los Angeles and the music is also good, however there is only one dance floor, and the smoking area is small and gets too crowded. Overall, I still go to this club once in awhile but it is not one of my favorites.
