Nice stiff drink, Hot Bartender, Awesome Pole Dance Lesson – I met the cute bartender John Eric after taking one of the Tuesday night pole dancing classes they offer there during non business hours. He set me up with a cosmopolitan that was exactly the way I like it after my workout. Where else can you relax like that after taking a pole dance lesson, which by the way, was amazing. I didn't realized what a workout pole dancing could be until the next day - I guess I was having too much fun doing the class to notice. The instructor was really cool and knew her stuff if your interested in the classes check out the website for Pole La Teaze, if your interested in the bartender i think he's already taken.
Great VIP table service!! – I reserved a VIP table for my 12 guests for 10/27. I reserved event thru emails and felt very accomadated by manager. I arrived with my guests and Eric came out to greet me. He set up my guests at the larger VIP area and our bottle service and mixers were delivered as promised on silver platters and buckets. The whole evening Eric came by to ask if my party needed anything. I was very happy with the service, atmoshere (halloween weekend and lots of costumes) and staff. Its small, stylish and inviting. I highly recommend getting the table service if your group is 6 or more. AND the DJ was on fire that night. I would and WILL go again.
Wed and Sat nights ;) – I don't know who the owners of this bar is but now that you have Vard working there you will definitely see me coming to party at your bar. You rock VARD and can make some of the best drinks.
Best Bar – This place is hot! The staff is hot! The fireplace in the back is hot! The couches are "O" so hot! The pole is slippery and hot! The DJ's are always hot!
L-A-M-E! – What a pathetic excuse for a bar. The bartender/owner is a fat nerd who somehow thinks he's cool. Think the Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons. What a joke.
Wed night – get your drink on. Vard is the best bartender. I love the Black seating in the bar. and the drink are unreal!
Crappy service – The bartender who serves his friends only and ignores other customers becasue he's too busy popping his collar cuz he thinks he's way cool......a) should learn to acknowledge patrons especially if they are standing right next to the person he is busy talking out of his rear (we stood there for 20 mins and he was not helping anyone else) b) if you are working then WORK, if you are trying to dance then at least watch who you knock into with your flailing arms because you are TRYING to dance....take some dance lessons c) if you lnock into someone (even if by accident), apologize!! It reflects poorly on the bar because the employees are rude and obnoxious- ok, really it was just that one bartendar. The female bartenders were great. The door guy was super cool and very nice. The music- eh..it was ok. Maybe it depends on the night and maybe it depends on the DJ....overall not impressive......
great crowd and customer service – this bar is a fave of my friends and I. everyone from the friendly doorman to the welcoming bartenders always go out of their way to make my group happy, and we never have to wait more than a couple minutes for our drinks. the crowd is a nice mix, which is refreshing after the oh-so-expected marina and typical cheezy north beach crowds. also, the size and intimate atmosphere provide a classy ambiance without feeling too crowded or meat-marketesque.
So Slow BAR – I found this bar on city search, highly recommended, except for the one person who said the bartenders didn't serve people in order. I stood at the bar for at least 30mins so I could order about 5 drinks for my group. I kept getting skipped over, for people the bartender knew on a personal basis. When I finally got the 5 drinks I tipped well so the bartender wouldn't skip me over when I came back. That totally didn't work!!! I finally moved to the other side of the bar where the much faster, less drunk, more attentive, bartender served me. This place brought my birthday down quite a bit. I wasted so much time standing waiting for a drink!!!! Thank goodness for good friends, they kept my birthday from being ruined by this place. Maybe it was an off night, but I wouldn't come back.
Great place to host a party! – I just had my graduation party and Sip Lounge and Bar was the best place I found out of quite a few places that I looked at. Talk to John Eric: he was very helpful. I rented out the lounge room in the back, had food and decorations, and it was all good. The drinks were strong, the atmosphere very comfortable. My guests share my opinion as well. Sip is away from the noise of Columbus, and close to parking garages. If I had to host another party, I would do there again.
