It's not a bad club, it's just not a safe club. I was there one evening and had to evacuate fifteen minutes after paying the cover charge because someone had set off tear gas and everyone had to leave. There are often quite bloody and violent fights that require police intervention. I'm writing this review because tonight my passenger side window was smashed and my car was broken into. Prior to this I was cursed at by security who told me to ""move my f__king car"". I protested the aggressive language and was told to ""shut the f__k up and move your car or get the f__k off private property!"". I moved my car. I then complained about my treatment to management and reported the surly security guard. When I went out to my car I found my window smashed. I have no proof that it was the a fore mentioned security guard that was the culprit. I will say however that mine was the only car broken into out of the fifty or so that were parked around me. I again informed management of the situation and was told ""five or six cars get broken into every week, it's not my security's fault"". Security supposedly patrols the parking lots but apparently not well enough. Make of this what you will, I only warn you to be cautious and never park at the top of the hill. Had I known street crime was so rampant in the vicinity I wouldn't have been there at all.

This place is crappy it was a nice bar but not a safe area I believe you should take a cab. Our car was broken into and about 2 grand was stolen out of our car I think this is the worst neibhorhood its known for roberies i will be taken care of those who did it god will get them but do not go here unless you take a cab. The cops even said that you should not bring your car or walk in this area there is alot of breaking in and robberies, so think twice before you park your car in this parking lot. My heart is broken about what happen great night until this happened.

I went to Scorpio's for the first time after moving here from NYC. I was thoroughly appalled. A woman was dragged out in from of my face by a drag queen whom when I questioned staff was ""security"" then everyone acted like they had no idea what happened. I would NEVER go back to scorpio nor would I recommend it to anyone. Unless you like being around thugs and in dangerous situations STAY AWAY!!!!

I hadn't been to Scorpios in about six months and decided to try it out again last night. I will say that it has improved vastly since last time I was there back in October. The crowd was more of your typical gay crowd rather than the thug crowd this club has the reputation for. In addition it was a Friday night and it was packed...usually on Friday nights when I would go before there were maybe 30-40 people in the club at best. As for the music, decent but still a little too hip-hop heavy for my tastes, but they threw in just enough recent top 40 dance hits to make it enjoyable. There was a drag show around 1:30 but if you are going for drag stick to Sundays and Wednesdays. Bottom line, if you haven't been here in a while check it out. Its definitely on its upswing and it was refreshing to see that it has become a decent Friday night dance spot.

I had never been to a Gay club before, and after some careful consideration, I decided to call up my gay friend and ask if I could join his group for one of their rendezvous's. I have to say that my experience was AWESOME!! Surprisingly, not too many guys made passes at me as much as I had originally anticipated(even though I am an anomaly, since I'm good looking AND Asian). Overall, I would definitely recommend this to any open-minded straight guy. Scorpio's ftw.

This was my first time at Scorpios. The parking lot was huge and lighted very well. Had security around which made me feel safe. I am transgendered so I went for their drag show. We got there at midnight but the show ended already. The club itself was very dark and very hot. Overall it was a great club to go to. The admission is $10 for non-members, but worth the price. The club was packed at midnight, but started to fizzle out around 1:30 am.

this was my first at scorpio but i had a very good time there. there was a diverse groups there and the music/ dj was great. i normally go to clubs in charlotte but i goota say, i felt more happy there.
there was some bad sides to it, getting a drink is a battle. the bartenders was good and was quick in getting the drinks..........and the apple martini was good.

Scorpio is one of my two favorite places to hang. It's simply the best place for a gay or gay friendly person to hang on a Wednesday or Sunday night. Drag shows start between 11:30 and midnight (correct me if I'm wrong), and they are to die for! The dance floors have great music. Whether you prefer dance/techno/""boy"" music or R&B, you'll be content. The only con? When it rains, it pours...in other words, people come in and just don't stop, so you may have to be patient to get a drink. Other than that, Scorpio is great!
By the way, I love the diversity...that's what makes Scorpio such a fun place!

When I went to Scorpio, half the people were gay men and half were women. With a sprinkle of trans. Of those women, I think only 10% were gay women. The rest were straight women. All you do is run into straight women all over the place and the women, are looking at you, and dancing with the gay men the whole time. Definitely not the place for a single guy looking to meet someone new because each gay man is surrounded by his girl friends. Not a place to be for a DL guy either. Other than that, the music was pretty good, the night started off really slow, at about 10 pm hardly anyone was there, I almost left but then people slowly started coming in. First they played techno and house. They have a Pac-Man arcade game in the pool room. By the time the Drag Queen show started at 12 the place was packed. After the show they went in hip-hop and the dance floor was packed. I keep hearing that Scorpio has mainly black people but when I went it was like 60% White, 20% Black, 20% Latino.

Great club but only one problem. Large black crowd - but EVERYONE who works there behind, the bar, the barback, ALL white? I mean damn. Whats up with that? Get some color up in that joint! Nowhere else to really go if your a brotha and gay so I guess we just have to deal with it!

Straight or gay Scorpio's is so much fun. Music is great- on both dance floors. Pick which one you want. Plenty of bars. and if you don't feel like dancing there is a pool room. Drag show is always a blast. I love going to meet new people- every one is very friendly. Will be going more often when school gets out.

I just moved to Charlotte and was really depressed, and I went to Scorpio with a gay friend of mine, and we had a blast! I have never had so much fun at a club, straight or gay. Everyone was so nice and they played really good music. I would go back even if I didn't have anyone that was gay with me.
