Extremely disrespectful bouncers--treated like a criminal

I was only in the DNA Lounge for the about 30 minutes before I was rudely dragged out after having done nothing wrong. I'm underage (20), prefer to dance sober, and I would NEVER disrespect a club's liquor license, so of course I didn't try to drink anything alcoholic. Later, however, I went up to the bartender and asked for some water so she gave me a cup. After my first sip a very hostile security guy comes up to me, grabs me, and demands to see my ID. I show him my ID and calmly explain that the cup I was holding contained water--the bartender even confirmed that it was only water. The security guy refuses to listen to anything I'm saying (even though I'm completely calm and completely sober), he won't even smell the cup, and then he drags me roughly out of the club. I ask him if I could just talk to him for a second and he insists that we talk outside. As soon as we get outside he immediately throws my cup of water out and slams the door on me. The bouncers are extremely disrespectful and did not even have the decency to even quickly smell my cup. I was a law-abiding, paying customer and they treated me like a criminal. I should have at least gotten a refund for the way I was treated. Nobody warned me that I might get thrown out for holding a cup of water. At the DNA Lounge, the bouncers might just decide to exert unnecessary force and throw you out for invalid reasons, just to abuse their power. DO NOT GO TO THIS CLUB--the bouncers are hostile, rude, and just plain mean.

Hot chicks

The first time I went here was on a friday, and tons of goth girls showed up. Wow! They were wearing little tiny leather and vinyl outfits, looked dirty (in a good way), and mean (in a good way). Now I usually go on the last thur. of every month when goth night is, but I havn't been too impressed. I think you should stick to Fridays at this place. It's a good solid crowd at Remedy filled with decent looking people. Get the drinks at the upstairs bar (in the back room). You get your money's worth.
I like the ambience and it plays good dance music. Give it a try!

Pop Roxx every 4th Saturday of the Month

I go to DNA almost every 4th Saturday. Diverse crowd, great music, plenty of room. I've had some of my best and worst experiences here. Sometimes the Dj's are incredible (if you have a chance to see DJ Mike Relm please do so) and sometimes they are god awful. Almost always the crowd is very cool and the dancing is great. I don;t bother drinking when I go, the drinks aren't that great and the bartenders are snooty, but if your looking for a good time sober style this is the place.

Quite a conundrum, this place.

I don't quite understand this place. The dance club was great, I danced my toushie off and it was a blast. But, I don't quite understand why they had so many bars!!! I mean, one or two, ok, but they had like 15 bars in this place, and everyone was sloshed! Whenever I was dancing there were like nine people around me just struggling to stand up (and dancing at the same time...you get the idea). So, I basically felt like I lost my 15 dollars!

Rude bouncers

The lay out of the club was cool, very large. If your in to raver music this is your club. On the night we went the bouncers were rude, bartenders stuck up, and you got an over all unfriendly vibe from the crowd. Maybe its the area, I'd personally never go back.

Nice!!!

This place gets a real nice mixed crowd! 3 bars Up stairs is hip-hop, but be prepared not to breath it's very hot & stuffy needs some fans or something! down stair has such a great mix of music the dance floor is so big the stage is awesome you see people really show off there moves! with break beats, drum & bass they even have congos down there to throw in a salsa tempo!! they have enough bars to accomodate everyone. The club lets you go in & out which is great! They also have internet acces there for free! up stairs the ceiling is open so you can watch all the action down stairs! This is about a friday! keep in mind this club is also where a lot of people like to have a X-periance

Not as good as they say.

This place is not as hot as the other ratings claim. Maybe it was because it was an Element Drink Club nite, but boy oh boy it was gross! The line was unnecessarily long, but I will agree the bouncers were very nice. It's not that large and all the Internet terminals were out of order. There were only two bars. The one on the second floor had like one slow bartender and was located in the middle of a walkway... bad idea! I think they only accept cash, too.

Did I pick a bad night?

Maybe I did pick a bad night. DNA has a monster reputation, an undeniably cool owner (Jamie Zawinski of Netscape fame), and an intimidating rating here on Citysearch. But...I can't really say I had fun there. When we arrived at around 10, the place was empty. We were happy we could go in and out, but when we came back, it was still far from full. The decor was, well, sparse, the dance floor was much too brightly lit, and the crowd was unusual...but not in a good way. The DJ was great and service at the bar wasfast, but that couldn't keep us there. Oh well. To my credit, it was a Saturday, but maybe just a poor production company...maybe we did pick a bad night!

More than just a lounge...

I can't really think of any cons for this place, except that I had to pay a $15 cover charge; otherwise, it was fine by me cuz they allow in&out's, so I can browse neighboring bars/lounges at the same time. The bouncers were really nice and not intimidating like most would be. Good bar service and I was surprised at how clean the restrooms were (compared to other clubs i've been to). The crowd is mainly 25-40's and I wouldn't go here if you just plan to sit around, because the only way to have fun here is to dance. If you do happen to be a wallflower dragged by your trendy friends, there are internet kiosks that you can peruse for free, although i don't understand why people would surf the net if they came to have fun at a club...?

hip, mature, unpretentious

Remedy Fridays is one of my favorite parties. Great house music and really diverse happy crowd that's there to dance and nothin' else. Definitely not a meat market but everyone is having such a great time, it's not hard to make new friends while you're there. Oh and the door and bar staff are very courteous and professional.
