Great Place with Excellent music.
Great place for Saturday night. Its true that the lines are long but if you know the right promoters, they can help you cut the line. We called Ricken 8572772561 and he was great. We were a party of 8 and he helped us cut the line and gave us 2 comps.
Cover was reduced from $25 to $15 on Ricken's list. Music was fantastic, didn't bother with mixed drinks, went straight for shots. The latin room is pretty good. Tables are highly recommended, especially the dance floor tables(our promoter help us get it). Overall great music, clean crowd and lots of fun.

My last Facebook post: is glad everybody survived the partial nite at Venu - def the last time anybody goes there. Music sucked, overcharged for cover, overcharged for miss-made drinks and my friend accosted/threatened by the ahem..aggressive, socially diverse crowd.
If you're interested in hanging out with 100 guys who obviously don't know how to wear the dress clothes they show up in and 100 women who shouldn't be wearing the clothes they're trying to pull off - definitely check it out.

this club was trying too hard to be posh. it obviously pays groups of attractive girls to just stand around, and it charges way too much for just about everything. cover was expensive ($20) as was coat check ($4) and drinks ($12). the bouncer made us stand outside for 20 minutes after opening (11 pm), and it was freezing outside. music was random (jumped from real mccoy to kanye west to green day) and it took a while for people to start dancing (which might be expected, though you'd figure that the hot girls they hire would try to dance and alleviate the awkwardness). tables are right up next to the small ""dance area"" and so glasses, drinks, and napkins wind up all over the floor. and even though you've paid all that money to be somewhere stylish, you will still find sketchy characters trying to grind up on/touch you. i did not find venu to be classy at all.

I went to Venu as a round out to my birthday week Extravaganza with a group of my friends and it was utterly Superb. I loveeeeeed the music, a mix of house, rock, hip hop, it was excellent. The drinks were a bit overpriced that was the only down side but it was worth it. The crowd was amazing, the dance floor was packed with people looking to have a great time, and the entrance was quick and easy, we literally waited for less then 3 minutes, It seriously could not have gone any better.

This Club was bad from the beginning to the end I went last Saturday and it was snowing out... The bouncers were telling people that if they wanted to go in quicker they would need to be tipped 50 dollars. I was not about to give a bouncer $50.00 just to get in to the place quicker just to turn around and pay for coat check then the $15 dollar cover. If I had done that it would have cost me about $70 dollars and I had not even had a drink yet. The Club was the dirty the bartenders were droping fruit slices on the floor then putting them in peoples drinks!!!!!!! They have a poor music selection!!!! Prices were high for everything!!!! All staff were rude and expecting you to tip them. I dont mind tipping someone who helped me with a drink or seated me somewhere but I'm not about to tip someone who is paid already for keeping people contained outside in a snowstorm for 45-50 minutes. I would recomend that the Department of public Health check out this establisment as well as the better buisness beauru.

I decided to purchase a table at 360 with 20% tip, and it could not have been a better club. The DJ was awesome, the sound system was great, and the service was good. Make sure you go on a Friday, the international night, when the best music is played, and the place is packed with hot girls. Though, the service was a tad slow and although it is nice that the tables are right on the dance floor, it does cause a problem because we had half our drinks knocked over by crazy dancers.
If you don't want you table to be right in the action, get the table at the end of the dance floor. There is a step to get to it, and although there is plenty of action there, it is less likely that your drinks will fall over, and you can seat more people.

We went on a Saturday night a little after 12. What a mess inside! People packed at hall way waiting for coat-check. Two rooms, Latin-house and hip-hop. Somehow, for hip-hop room, you have to reserve ahead of time to be able to wait on line for a bracelet in order to get into the room. Silly! We ended up in the Latin-house room. The room was trendy with couches around. The crowd was young Latinos, not the Salsa and Merengue type, more of Chanel and Prada type that can only dance Latin pop. They all came with their own crowd and definitely wouldn't mix with others. Music was decent if you like Latin pop, a few merengue. Drinks? A small bottle of water cost $5. At 2am it was another battle to get our coats. They need a better management! We probably will go back, say, once a year.
