The 3 floor club boats having 3 D.J's. In reality the first floor is a bar sit down area where you can still hear the music but the flow of people is continuos unless you've come for an after work drink you will have no interest in this floor. The next steps you take are to the mandatory coat check. The line can get pretty long and yes, they still pat you down. Then you are shuffled up the narrow steps (row home style) to the "dance" floor. An impressive 2 bars, one more seclusive then the other and two "stripper stages". You could spend a good two hours there before even club hours, mingle and not get bored. A bouncer is waiting to walk up the third steps (narrow, row home style). I do not know who he singles out, but pretty much everyone is allowed upstairs. The third and final floor is a comfortable welcoming lounge. A nice leather orange sofa outlines 3/4 of the wall. This is where most of the gay crowd mingled. There is also a kareokee D.J. and another mini bar. You can also entertain yourself by going through a doorway to reveal another bar, I just realized I never went in this room maybe this is where their supposed two V.I.P rooms are. In the kareokee room there are another set of steps that takes you to the second floor, more secluded bar area. I did not eat there but this is also where the curtains hide the entrance to the kitchen. Overall this night club, for it's outside appearance was impressive inside. They had good D.J's and excellent drink specials. You would not be overdressed at all in a backless dress with heels.
This place is small but cozy and clean. There is a friendly staff, a good cook and a nice set up for karaoke. I think it should change the name of the night to America's Next Top Idol - lol! The patrons could really sing - but that shouldn't stop someone of lesser talent from getting on stage because it is, after all, karaoke. The dj kept the crowd moving with no long gaps between performers and there was no unnecessary talking on the microphone. The lights are nice and give you the star quality feeling. After ordering a delicious raspberry martini, which I never heard of before this but was more than pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was! There's a few couches, tables and chairs and it's nice to use clean facilities when it's time to "go". More props for having a well-behaved crowd that was friendly enough to speak but not so friendly that you feel violated. If you can hang on Tuesdays from 9pm - I recommend the place.
I went to fiso my first time last sat for my 32nd b-day. I was told by many of my friends it is the best place around. So I called them to book my birthday party. The girls in the office answering the phones are great! They hooked me up a free party which included free cover and open bar for me and my friends. I was a little nervous having a free party.... but... it was GREAT! The hostess was very nice and gave me a table to put my cake on and made sure my party was a blast. There was a nice dance floor and a beautiful roofdeck (I heard the tent comes off in the spring to see the skyline of philadelphia) Anyway... I definitely recommend this place! I will be going back real soon:-))
