This place is not that great long lines,the door staff won't let you in unless they know you,very rude . The music is alrite, the space inside is tight...I really thought it would be better that what I've seen. They hype it up like its a big happening spot but it really is not. Its not really clean inside and it like a hole in the wall....
I was looking for a club to go downtown and I checked my iPhone for reviews and came across Sutra. It was already midnight, so I figured what the hell.
My BFF, Michelle was kinda tired, but I dragged her along anyway. Let me tell you this place is hot. The DJ mixes the best hip hop and club ever. I danced so hard, my feet started to hurt and then I took my shoes off and danced in stockings. Cool college guys. Fun place.
This place suck, there is always no space in this lounge, the security never let you in, the bouncer at the door steals money from women because he take 2500 from my sister and it going on almost a year still she didn't get it from him...How is a place that is suppose so hot hire a bouncer that steals from women that he meets there. I want there a few times and I advise women do not go to this lounge is sucks big time and they charge a arm and leg for drinks, when the lounge across the street charge alot cheaper and friendly staff. Also bouncers that do not steal your money......

I have been going here every weekend for quite some time for these reasons...
- Guaranteed great tunes - I'm a big music fan and you can count on there being good music most nights of the week- mostly hip hop / party classics
- Love the venue- it's cosy, dimly lit, and pretty mirrored mosaics on the walls, and golden buddha features
- Friendly, fun, down to earth vibe. That pretty much says it all.

I'm not quite sure what ""contraire"" is talking about... But au contraire my friend... Sutra has been a staple go-to spot for me and my orderly party people for months now! From the great music you refer to as noise to the service (always courteous), Sutra has consistently been reliable. For the sake of fun and stress-relief at the end of a long day of work, outlets such as Sutra are a valuable necessity in any neighborhood.
It's a fact that bars aren't for everyone. But, please don't angrily lash out with blatant personal vendettas in a stiff, dry, and, dare I say, disgusting effort to build a case against all law-abiding bars in the city.
Now that that's out of the way... I'll go back to planning my next Sutra gathering.
Thank you and good night.

We who are most well acquainted with this god-awful place are not patrons but those nearby who are victimized by their business practices. They cannot run a club, it seems, without making hundreds of people suffer. The noise, which goes on till closing, is unbearable. Their patrons, drunk and disorderly, fill the street, because they do not understand that it is not good business to liquor up people too violent and drunk already. It is disgusting that any business in this city should operate at the expense of the neighborhood in which they are situated. Too often it has been the epicenter of disturbance and violence. This is not a viable business. It is a dangerous nuisance.

I recently went to the Sutra Lounge to celebrate my husband's birthday and ""Reserved"" a table space for him and a few of his friends. While my husband tried to find parking, I had no problem entering the club but my husband and his friends had a really hard time entering. We were told by an Asian man at the door that he would show me to the reserved area and when my husband arrives he would escort them in. When my husband got to the door, a very unprofessional black bouncer told him that everyone had reservations here and that he needed to go to the back of the line and wait like everyone else. My husband asked him ""if everyone has a reservation, what makes the club so special"". After arguing back and forth with this man, I received help from a blond waitress who asked the Asian man to please let my husband and friends come to our reserved area.
Upon entering the lounge, it was hot, stuffy and the steam maker had a foul smell. The so called ""Reserved"" area had other people sitting there already which the waitress had to make them leave. We were given a very limited list of bottled drinks, an ice bucket and some cheap plastic cups. We had barely any room to dance....needless to say, we made the best of a cheap experience. The space is not worth paying over $200 and there was nothing special about the experience here. The music was ok and I believe the DJ is a little over rated. I advise that if you go to the Sutra Lounge, please don't reserve and just pay the door fee...you will have the same experience and keep more money in your pocket!

Sutra Lounge made my Dazzling Decade Kickoff (aka birthday) party such an awesome experience.
From the moment I called to make the reservation to the moment I got to the door, I was treated with the utmost professionalism. Two gentlemen walked me towards the VIP area and formally introduced me to our server for the evening, who was both sweet, hospitable, and very accommodating.
My party guests felt so great enjoying one another's company in their own privacy and comfort, and having a bottle of GreyGoose and mixers right at their fingertips. The bouncers made me feel like a goddess, showering me with ""Happy Birthdays"" and looking out for my guests. The music, overall sexiness, and vibe were perfect for us, too. Our photos are hot!
I'll recommend Sutra to anyone and everyone I know, and plan future events with them. SUTRA rocks!

Came into town last weekend for my friends bday party, I didn't know what to expect but this place was so luxurious and classy. Tons of good looking people roaming around ;). I got there kind of early and was chatting with the bartenders, they recommended this new drink TYKU. They made me a TYKU mojito and it was in a whole other category of good drinking!! so light and refreshing, supposedly it has less calories too! I was hooked, and bought a few rounds for the bday girl. Soon everyone started piling in and it turned out to be an unforgettable night!!
