    I really enjoy my night over here! Music is fantastic, the staff is a little rude, but I was totally fine I think that is because everybody get crazy in here.

    If you aren’t white or wealthy you are treated with disgrace. The racial / varied profiling, being pressured to strip their pockets like a prison, while being aggressively patted down, made my electronic smash. The coat check folks don’t prioritize you (minorities) regardless of having a ticket number and even their partners “Temple Emanuel” won’t take your complaints nor will the service people give you directions. Hey, observe the sculptures, but don’t get too excited of the food quality for the high price you pay of entry.

    Definitely over-hyped! Doormen aren’t the nicest and very selective on who they let in. Fortunately my friend and I were let in with little to no argument, but they told the guys ahead of us that it was a $400 bar tab to gain entrance, which was complete nonsense because they didn’t tell us that, or anyone they deemed “worthy” to get in. If they try to charge you a ridiculous amount of money for entrance, they’re lying! Go elsewhere, they’re trying to discourage you! The DJ was corny, so was the crowd. A mixture of pop and hip hop, but most of the hip hop was old and overplayed. DJ had terrible transitions, people were walking back and forth all night, rudely bumping into you left and right. There was little pockets of dancing here and there, but most were standing around or annoyingly walking around because they probably can’t dance. I don’t know why they’re so selective at the door, I’ve had more fun at spots in the hood. Only gave an additional star because the decor is lovely, but other than that, waste of time. Boring at best.

    Shocking experience. Two friends and I holidaying here from Australia wanted to check out TAO Nightclub after dinner. We didn’t even make it past the front door due to the arrogant bouncer making his choices on who he should and shouldn’t let in based on no set rules. As we got to the start of the line he stated the only way we could get in is by paying $400USD minimum on a bar tab. I’ve travelled all over Europe, Asia and recently other parts of America, as a foreigner to be turned away due to a bouncers choice is disappointing. TAO does not specify any need for a minimum spend or rules. Ridiculous.

    i would give 0 stars if i could. very dangerous for women even when you’re with friends. bouncers are predatory and derogatory towards women. girls please stay away from here, i promise anywhere else is better and safer to have fun at
