Prejudice, lack of customer service, no respect

I am the CEO of an up and coming magazine and entertainment firm and decided to have my 24th birthday party at Qua due to its atmosphere; the shark tank, the waterfalls, and the elegant atmosphere that it ensues. As time came closer for the party, I spoke with the event planner and he was excited to have my business and the fact that I was bringing a minimum of 30 people with me due to my growing popularity. A young ... view more

The first time I went, I had a great time. I went with a friend of mine who is tall, blonde, blue eyes, etc.... . The 2nd time, I went with a Hispanic friend and they wouldn't let us in because they claimed that you needed a reservation. 10 minutes prior to that, my blonde friend had walked right in, no questions asked. The manager told the blonde girl that front door guys decide who comes in and who doesn't. I was v... view more

When I heard they were putting sharks in the floor of a night club... I was mad. I went by there and they told me no one stands on the glass but I have seen people... It is cruel to put anything (animal) in a night club. They claim they have not lost a shark but I know of one and that's one toooo many. Sharks are being over hunted and thier populations are on the decline. We must protect them not show them off in a c... view more

Qua is nice - Sometimes

I am not rich but I like to take my wife to a place where no white teeny boppers pretending be rappers hang out or any hostile environment. I also like to dress like a mature adult when I celebrate special occasions and Qua is a nice place for that. So far the staff has always treated us fine the few times we had been there. No discrimination was detected. The only gripe I've ever had was with a couple of the door gu... view more

If I Could Give It a Negative Star, I Would

I merely repeat what others have stated. Both of my attempts to enter - denied. First due to open toed shoes. Second on a Saturday night - I was dressed and was told there was a private party, while watching others go in, not being asked to show and reflect proof of knowing anything about a private party. It is not normal for a club to have private parties for the whole club on a Friday night. Business wise does not ... view more

Overpriced Drinks and Horrible Customer Service

My husband and I went to Qua recently and after a few hours of drinking we received our bill and found that we had been charged for more drinks than we ordered. This is the second time this has happened to us at Qua the first time the waitress took off nearly half our bill and was much more accomodating than this second experience. Not only were we charged for drinks we did not order but the drinks were over priced ... view more

horrible service

Not to mention that they're in the completely wrong market for trying to be high end it's how inconsistent they are in enforcing everything is what makes a lot of people angry. Some people aren't allowed in with flip flops on, some aren't allowed in with jeans on, and on the other hand some are. If you buy a bottle marked up several hundred percent of what they're worth then you're treated differently. They don't ... view more

tries to be high end but end up just being lame!

This place is lame and pretentious for no apparent reason. I understand if you want to maintain certain standards or code of operation because you're wanting to maintain a particular client base. But they're so absolutely inconsistent with all their rules on who gets in or not that it make a lot of people angry. I think that every single one of my friends hate this place.

First of all, this was my anniversary weekend as well as my b'day and my brother(who lives in Austin) told me about this place and wanted us to go there to celebrate and said it was a good place to take nice pictures. Well once we get to the entrance, the guys working the door(on Sept. 18, 2009) immediately tells my husband that he couldn't come in because he had on sneakers but at the same time we seen a guy leaving... view more
