I am female and straight and w...

I am female and straight and went with a straight girl friend. We had the best time!! On previous reviews I was not wanting to deal with snotty bouncers or a troublesome dance floor. But I decided to give it a try anyway. We are so glad we did!!! The boys at the door were very pleasant offering service with a smile and called me sweety. Once we went in we loved that it was more than just an open are. There were several places to sit and get away from the music. The dance floor was a different set up than an average run of the mill club but we had no problems dancing for 3 hours to great music!! Drinks were a little pricey but we were given more alcohol than the average amount. So we were fine with it. So overall... friendly people, cool setup, great drinks, great music, gorgeous shirtless men, and a great time!! I will be going back!!

Dangerous Place

I was attacked by gay bashers in front of the Axis Night Club exit. I was simply exiting the club when I was struck in the face repeatedly... a man stepped in to defend me and was knocked to the ground and hit repeatedly as well... I was then chased across the parking lot where two kind men stood by me while we waited for the police to arrive. None of the axis bouncers/workers/witnesses stayed to speak with the police about the gay bashing that had occurred at their establishment. I now have a bruised swollen cheek; a black eye and god knows what kind of psychological damage. Axis should face major repercussions for neglecting to protect its clientele. I am shocked and infuriated, disgusted and appalled. If I could give it negative stars I would!!!

Best Dance Music In Town

Being of the straight orientation, I can honestly say that this club is more fun than any other club I've been to. I have to say that the people at the entrance are a bit snotty but I can deal with that to go have fun on the dance floor. If you haven't been to the club yet, make sure to watch out for the showers in the center of the room. I didn't know what they were and got a rather,um, interesting surprise. Anyways, I recommend this club to anyone who like loud, fast music and bright lights, guys without shirts, and a fun atmosphere.

Well the music is great specially on fridays. Drings are very affordable, bartenders are nice and I always have a lot of fun. I only have one complain, the people in the entrance are purely and hardcore bitches, I can stand people like that making a big deal for no ID's. Why don't you just mark us like under 21 and let us dance and have fun. Other than that the club is great. Thanks Guys!!!!!!! PLUS I VE BEEN TO NEW YORK CLUBS, MIAMI CLUBS CALIFORNIA CLUBS REALLY CLASSY N NICE CLUBS butttt! I VE NEVER SEEN THAT MUCH ATTITUDE WITH PEOPLE CHECKING IDS HAHA ITS REDICULOUS. . . . . . and the way they are dressed OMG......

great workers

i was searching for the club and i was looking for it by parking my car somewhere and walking and i found more than just a person to ask i found this guy that had blondish hair and a nice attitude and he told that if i went across the street because i was on the wrong side that i could find it there and that he was working there later that night and just because i can't remember his name right now because i was more admiring how he was nice to me to help me find what i was looking for more than just help finding a place to go at night but a place that i could have fun because im not the only one there having fun that the workers there are having fun doing what they do and the drag queens did more than just have a show but they made me smile :-D

OH AXIS.....

This club is funny to me. I will say that i always have a good time when i go. The music is really really good. the crowd is twinky but whatever. The only thing i don't like is the attitude. Somtimes those girls can get really out of hand. Also the ""candy"" use in the columbus gay community is RAMPANT! The place is more like CRACKsis. Overall i usauly go on the first or second saturday. The second saturdays are GREAT! off the hook! altho i do want them to remodel soon. That stage is wearing me out truly!

Lots of fun

I had a lot of fun at this club. I am a straight girl and it was a lot of fun to just sit back and enjoy watching the throngs of gorgeous men without being molested by them. I got there early, so parking was easy and there was no line at the door. The drinks were very good. The music was great, and although the floor was crowded, it was cool that everyone was dancing. When the crowd got to be too much in the main area, there were smaller areas to go to to decompress.

Best time to go is 2nd Friday of the Month(CD giveaway)

When OSU is in session, this place is Hoppin'! Great, up-to-date music with plenty of places to hangout when you get tired of dancing. Big mix of crowd, with some of the best looking people in the city. Drink prices are average but strong. Get there before midnight or plan to wait inline and have trouble parking.
People who may not like Axis are people who are insecure and out of shape. This is where people who take care of themselves and are proud of how they look hangout. So if this is not you, drop the negative attitude and go somewhere else.
If you want lots of eyecandy, this is the place to come. Stand upstairs and peer over the balcony at the ""Sea of Men"".

If you like drama, expensive drinks, and annoying queens...go here!

This is the most overpriced, obnoxious club around. The layout is awful...the crowd is gross...and the music is awful. The guys are all bitchy and if you aren't a regular expect to be molested as soon as you walk through the door. out for the strippers getting right up in your face.

1- whoever design the dance floor, well ...shouldn't. i get it, it's the way it's shaped to reflect the name of the business...horrible for dancing
2- whats with all the attitude???????
3-expensive? for columbus, yes, for chicago, YES!!!!
4-parking, what parking
5-go to q, at least you won't feel like you need a shower after you leave
6-no i don't work for q, just tired of hearing how great this overrated, badly designed, expensive, self serving bar is columbus' premiere dance club

I would rather have an endoscopy...

If Axis Nightclub were the UN, Columbus would have been bombed 50 years ago. While in town for an event, a group of friends and I attended Axis due to the fact that it is the ""only cool place in town."" Cool? Heh heh.....nope, try again. My friends and I are from all over the U.S. (mostly MAJOR cities like New York, Chicago, and LA) and have not seen so much attitude in our respective hometowns COMBINED as we encountered at Axis. Boys, a word of advice: you're in Ohio and most of you were born and raised in the middle of no where.....don't forget your roots.

Best gay club

Very nice!!! Great price on drinks. Parking can be hard to find, but there has to be at least one thing wrong any where you go.

The Hook Up Club

One of the best gay clubs around. Dancing, fun great looking people and a great place to hook up and meet some one dance with them on the dance floor and take'em home afterwards!

Give Me A Break

Axis is a whole in the wall compared to the new Grid in Cleveland. You can also tell that the owners of the Grid care about there customers not ripping them.

The scene in Cincinnati may not be that great but the Dock is one hundred times nicer and has a great outdoor area.

You don't know what you got!

This is definetly the best club in the state of Ohio. Cincinnati's offereing of gay clubs is extremely pathetic, as well as Cleveland's. Axis patrons may not realize just how fun their club is, but if they want an idea-travel to one of those other cities. And as far as the crowd, much more to look at here too.
