Vinyl is a good overall spot certain nights better than others
There seem to be many conflicting reviews about Vinyl... First I'd like to clear One thing up... If you are going to dog club Vinyl and want to send a strong message don't include "I recommend you go to the Church instead" as part of your review because the Church and Vinyl are both owned by the same person "Regis" All you are doing is sending money to him via a different route.
My personal point of view of Vinyl is they have good nights and they have bad nights, it all depends on what you are looking for. Vinyl and Church are both known for bringing in great electronic DJs and Hip Hop DJs like DJ Craze, Miguel Migs, Diplo, Kid Capri, Qbert, etc... But you have to realize this also means on certain nights they don't have a consistent DJ that plays everyweek . On other nights the DJs are more local, and on some nights the club actually rents out part of the club to private parties that bring in their own DJs.
I've attended several of each of these kinds of parties. The DJ Craze event was one of my favorites he totally rocked the crowd and killed it on the turntables. There are a few nights wher I have been left very unimpressed by their DJs, their crowd control at the end of the night or by their bar staff, and other nights where they do everything perfectly and their DJs are on top of their game.
The Breakz Party (the one people were talking about somewhere on here with the breakdance competition) was a great overall party, loved the DJs on that night, DJ Chonz was doing his thing, DJ Emir was killing it with hot remixes and DJ Sound Supreme warmed up all the breakdancers with some great breaks and oldschool hiphop. This was a great night with the rooftop completely packed out and great music that differed on three floors with house music on the first floor, techno breaks on the second and Hip Hop and reggae on the third floor rooftop. You don't find that kind of diversity at many Denver nightclubs.
Now if you visit Vinyl on another night you might not get the same experience. Many times they only have two floors of music running with the top floor usually feeding a music downstairs to the second floor as well so you wont have as much diversity in the music. Especially on a night like reggae on the roof thursdays where despite the name of the night, the music is mostly Hip Hop and does not vary from floor to floor.
My point is, you can't judge any club based on any One night in particular. granted anyone that has a bad experience will most likely not return unless they have also had a good expreience in the past. So my advice to all nightclub owners is to make sure your entertainment is top notch and make sure your staff, bartenders and bouncers all understand that treating your patrons well and providing great entertainment is the golden ticket to longevity in the nightclub industry.
