Never going back

Some friends and I went to a few of the clubs on my birthday. Compared to any of the other clubs this one was definetly the most expensive. We had no problems getting in however it seemed like a bit of a rip off. We got two rail drinks and that costed us $18. We were a little shocked at the price when next door at club NV we were paying $1 for rail drinks. Either the bartender was retarded or they are trying to screw everybody over with the costs. All in all, the other clubs had a nicer atmosphere, better music, cheaper drinks and entry fee. We will not be returning to Aqua Nightclub again.

This club reminds me of Vegas Clubs

We had bottle service last Saturday night. It was a great experience. One of our friends could not get because he was wearing Tennis shoes, so he had to go home change and come back. I personally liked it because only well dressed crowd is allowed there. I now understand why a lot of people are upset with the bouncers because they don't let everyone in that Club. They keep it classy and I felt like I am in Vegas. Bottle service was GREAT. Our server was good looking and helpful. They even gave us a discount on our third bottle which was great. I would go there again and again. This club belongs to Miami or Vegas.

Not Coming Back!!!!

After paying a lot of money for VIP we got the worst service ever. I was not able to get in in to my VIP TWICE even with VIP wristband. I asked the bouncer if there another wristband i should have for him to get me in and he said NO. He said someone has to WAIVE you from VIP then i will get you in (yes, and my name was on the list too). Really??? If you consider this VIP to be private, please do a stamp or another wristband or something!!!!! So, at this point, my night was all ready ruined; then i got phone call from my gf that she was in the line and bouncers at the door totally ignored her when she tried to explain that she was on VIP list. I came down and tried to talk to the girl at the register and she waived like ""go away""....argh i love downtown and i go to different places like NV, the Lounge...but i never was sooooo upset. This club sucks!!!!

Im a regular!

AQUA has alot of different nights going which is cool. Fridays is a mix of latin and top 40. Sat is all different types. Sunday is hip hop like all clubs downtown, not my favorite night to be in MPLS but I got a very extensive pat guess I felt safe knowing they do that to everyone. (No pat downs on thurs, fri, and sat lol) Love all the nights and they always have drink specials and bottle service specials. Great staff. With all the clubs closing in Minneapolis and this one is going strong...obviously doing sumthin right!

New years EVE 2011

This is one of the worst clubs in the twin cities. If you are looking to spend a lot of money but be greeted with horrible service and down right rude employees this is definately the place to go to. The VIP section is way too small and falsely advertised. I normally am not one to complain and pretty much could have a good time anywhere but this was by far one of my worst experiences and not to mention a poorly ran business. When a customer calls to reserve a VIP section the person on the receiving end of this business transaction should also be curtious enough to mention that someone else will be calling back to follow up and confirm reservations. But this should be considered the same thing when the customer calls back and confirms instead. The employees at this club need to get on the same page and COMMUNICATE with each other about what is going on instead of working individually and when faced with an issue, don't stand there and act like clueless and as if you were doing your job. You want to run a business well? well learn to talk to each other and possible keep a script of what information should be told to your clients. Business is business but people don't spend serious money to get down right rude and poor service. If you are looking for a classy and well ran business with good and welcoming service, this is exactly not the place to be at!
not to mention the bouncers are AIRHEADS literally, when someone passes out the rules are to leave the club right???? well when clients are cooperating and leaving like they should be, don't stop them! let them go and leave the club like you want them to! Hire bouncers who can think on thier own two feet and can add 1+ 1 and put two and two together. You are better off hiring gorillas and a pine tree.

Bad value, boring, uptight...

After paying too much to get in, you are in a small room with no places to sit and the interesting places cordoned off. This might have been all right if the music was any good, but it was horrible. It felt like a ghost town, too, since everyone else was staying away. The DJ didn't play music to get people on the floor, so every other song everyone would just stand around. There were a lot of employees just standing around, too. I've been to a lot of places that were less expensive, more packed, and more fun. I think Aqua should lower the price or just close during the week.

Never again, great place to get assaulted by bouncers

I was thrown to the curb last night because i flicked off the bartender because he refused to honor the drink special at 12:58 am when it lasted till 1:00 am. Then when I yelled at them on public sidewalk one of the bouncers maced me. I am still burning from it and I plan on getting justice. I called the police right away and they came and said if i don't leave I would go to detox!!!!!!! I was the victim and they automatically took aqua nightclubs side!

Attacked by Bouncer at Aqua Night Club

Hello, my name is Aaron Dexter.

I was put into a full-nelson headlock by a bouncer at Aqua Night Club who ""escorted"" me out of the bar.

In the lobby, the bouncer pushed me down causing me to break my leg.

As I laid on the ground with a broken leg, two other bouncers grabbed my arms and dragged me down the stairs and left me on the sidewalk.

My attorney and I have been unable to reach a settlement with Aqua's insurance and it looks like we will be going to court.

From reading reviews about Aqua Night Club online, it appears that I am not the only one that had sustained an injury from the violent staff at Aqua Night Club.

Therefore, I am in the process of gathering names and telephone numbers of individuals that have been physically attacked by Aqua Night Club staff to strengthen my case as well as help put an end to this senseless violence.

If you or any of your friends would like to share a similar experience, please email me at snoopdoggydex@gmail (The post board won't allow me to put the dot com part in).

Please note that I am a real person...this isn't a scam...I need your help.

Take care, stay safe, and thank you in advance for your help.
