Went here a few times on visits to Boston and saw some awesome parties... totally crazy people dancing and having a blast with amazing visuals, cool bartenders, good vibes all around. Â Some of these reviews have people complaining about waiting in line which is weird because I've never seen that happen for more than a couple minutes. Â The inside of this place is really cool too, just a huge dancefloor basically which is all you need! Â The only thing I hate is that they close at 1, just when the party is getting started but that's a Cambridge thing - not their fault!Review Source:
This place has potential but it's seriously flawed by a couple key things. Â After waiting in line for an absurd amount of time while watching person after person pop out cabs and slip through the door because they "know" someone, Â me and my friends paid the $10 cover an eventually got in. Â We had never been there before. Â Letting people in here and there is to be expected at any club but at the rate this place was doing it is a bad sign. Â Other reviews hint to this as well, seems like management doesn't care. Â They can make a lot more money with the paying customers, just sayin'!!
The other issue was obvious. Â The DJ. Â I went to his site: Caserta Music and liked what I saw. Â Seems like he has some traction. Â BUT, it's a different story when you see him live. Â Either he was having an off night or this guy has really lost the plot. Â
We were there for a little over 2 hours and people as a whole were not dancing much. Â They were moving a bit so as not to look dumb standing still most of the time. Â The vibe was lost and it was obvious.
The DJ was doing a series of quick changes at one point. Â A Dj's moment to shine. Â But the changes were horrid. Â Not smooth at all. Â He was walking all over himself and it was apparent by the crowd. Â They'd start to move a bit to the music and have to stop cold when he went to the next song because most were out of time and TOO short. Not good. Â It got to the point where I decided to walk over and give him a suggestion to salvage the night. Â I politely said "Hey can you throw a remix of a top 40 track in there or something?" Â He sarcastically shook his head at me laughing, Â grinned and said, "Nope." Â I then said, "But these people aren't really dancing." Â That one line caused him to flip out on me yelling, "#%*? you! Â I'll knock you out right now! etc...." He even added hand gestures to this which really exuded professionalism and class! Â I stood there non-reactive as did my friends and just shook our heads at this disappointment of a DJ. Â And then to top it off he says over the mic, "Anyone who wants top 40 can go the $&@% home!" Â He was amateur at best and that little outburst made him a hack. Really a let down.
Like I said above, this place has potential. Â But there are some obvious signs that management need to pick up on. Â Firstly, there was not enough action at the bar. (the money maker) This is an obvious indication that people weren't thirsty enough to buy drinks. Â This is because they weren't dancing enough! The bartenders were great and professional. Â But they should be annoyed that their tips could have been better if there was better attention paid to the entertainment. Â
Location is good but the inside is a bit run down and the furniture is a bit cheap looking. Â Could use a facelift here and there. Â
Overall, I wont be back anytime soon and neither will my friends. Â It's clear the club is not making the money it should. Â Or this place would be a lot better inside. Â The DJ is trying for the "Art" of it (I guess) which is fine but he's not able to find that balance and isn't doing the club a good service by not feeling out the vibe. Â And this was a Saturday night! Â And management should pick up on this. But in general the people are nice including the staff.
