Blacks Be Aware – The Place will never get my business again. I advise all blacks to stay out of there. There was an issue with a black guy and security asked the guy to leave. He got up to leave and was walking towards the door and the security guard started shoveling him. I thought that was just one incident; however, the security guard later came over and informed me and my two girlfriends that there were a two drink minimum. I had purchased more than 2 drinks and one of my girlfriends had purchased 2. They felt it was their cue to leave, so they left. I had just purchased a drink so I stayed. I got up to dance to one song, and once I got back to my seat, my drink was gone. I asked the bartender about it, and she ask me did I want another one. She was going to charge me for it, and I told her I didn't want one. I asked to close my tab, and I did not leave her a tip because of the drink incident. The next thing I knew security came over, and he informed me that the bartender said I had to leave. I never heard of such. I had been there several times, and I always left a good tip. I will take my business back to Johnnie's Hideway where Shaun and Nancy can vouch for that.
Hot Chicks, Crappy Experience. – I have to agree with the guy who shredded this place for their DJ. Although I must say that his taste buds must be off.
Pros:Convenient parking,Hot bartneders
1.) Drink Prices. Holy CRAP are they high! $3.50 for a domestic? Almost 7 dollars for a well mixed? The place is a dive with a good wrapping.
2.) Music. Go elsewhere unless you want to hear the same music every weekend. Also the audio system sucks badly. Either that or the DJ is as deaf as he is talentless (which is pretty much)
3.) Food. Mediocre for the price charged, but when you care more about the money than the quality, it shows.
4.) Waitstaff. Pretty but brainless.
5.) Decor. Looks like you put mahogany over your clubhouse walls. WHo are you kidding?
6.) Dance Floor. Tiny Tiny Tiny. BUT they have over 10 speakers cranked to the max so you get lulled into the sense that it's bigger?
In summary: Bad. Expensive. Hot Bartenders.
Awsome for singles – I love this place! The women are great, mature and friendly.
Great place, if not the only place for us single locals. Staff is nice and everything is quite reasonably priced.
I have run into quite a few swingers here for those who like the lifestyle. Just remember guys and gals, if you come to The Place...you can always count on meeting someone and going home with someone. That's a promise!!
Keep an eye on the bartenders – I strongly suggest you don't run a tab and do keep an eye on what passes for bartenders. Ordered two beers and ran a tab, but when I closed out, two additional beers magically appeared on the tab. I left a 3/4 full beer on the bar in front of my chair that I had been sitting in all night (and placed a napkin on the top which any decent bartender knows is a sign that the drinker is coming back). When I returned from one dance, my beer had been tossed. Asked the clueless brunette where my beer went. She just shrugged and walked away. I don't know what game they have going, nor will I return to find out.
Watch OUT! – My daughter has Multiple Sclerosis. Unfortunately, she has trouble walking, sight, and her speech is slurred due to the MS. She had an altercation with someone in the bar, reported it to security, and was immediately treated as if she was drunk even though she tried to explain her disorder to the ignorant manager. Let this be a lesson to anyone of you who happens to have a loved one who has a disease or handicap. Stay away from this place. No compassion or understanding goes with this place. BEWARE!
Diminishing Neighborhood Dump – We stopped by The Place for a late night drink and listen to the awesome DJ. Asked for WATER with my shot and was told I had to by a bottle. A shot and bottle of beer - $10 - the experience - FORGETABLE. Went doew the street to JImmy Macs and got my glasses of water with my drinks - ah - for free! HMMMM, you figure it out!
Supplemental air supply – Everyone in the PLACE was smoking. It was so bad we had to leave. We've heard the food was good however couldn't stand the smoke. Some people where eating and smoking at the same time it took me back to the 1970's.
The Place is really a Great Place. – My wife and myself(over 45) visited The Place this Friday night and I was pleasantly surprised.I have given the rating 4 starts(above average) for certain reasons. Firstly its a fun place.The security guys dressed up as the sheriff are friendly and welcoming.There is no entrance fee.The place is bright and colorfull and more like a sports bar than a night club, located in a good Marietta area.The air conditioning works well and the place is spotlessly clean.The dancing music is mixed, very mixed anything from oldies to hip hop and country.The Place is for an over 30's crowd for sure.I saw 30's 50's and 70 year old people having a good time, whites and blacks all dancing together to "We are Family" and meaning it. Line dancing, I believe is an institution and most people know their steps pretty well.
Another reason for giving The Place above average 4 stars is the price of the menu and the drinks. Very reasonable.I had a Greek Gyro and fries $5.95 and my wife had the Grouper fish and salad $8.95. Our bill for the evening came to $32 odd , and yes we did tip our lovely hard working waitress.
All in all a fun evening, no trouble no hassle and no great strain on the credit card.
FUN WHEN DRUNK: GET A CAB, THERE ARE LOTS OF THEM – Ladies and Gentlemen. I am tired of clubs and public establishments writing their own reviews, this should not be allowed by City Search ever-my opinion! YES WE ALL KNOW WE ARE SUPPOSED TO TIP, I am sick of clubs writing their own reviews telling us to TIP! I TIP LADY!
I think "The place" is not really "The place", although it is "The place" to be if you are 45 and single! I did see one or two younger(I'm 30) girls there, but I date up to 44 yrs old-that is generally my cut-off unless they are super hott! The bouncers are wearing cowboy hats, and have small man disease, and everytime they see a muscular man, they feel like they need to puff up a little and get an attitude-not to feel small. Guys, relax, have a beer, and enjoy the view, otherwise shut-up, your not in the CIA and most of us can take you! Service=great, as long as you can barge your way through three men blocking the way, with no courtesy, unless you are a big breasted female, and sometimes that doesn't even matter because they are drunk and thirsty.
I did however go a few months ago, and had a really good time, because I danced with my woman and had drinks, so it was what I made it I guess. If you are 30yrs old, and like mature women, go there...if you are a 40 year old female, and like well dressed and hung young 30's, ask for me... the good looking Italian-dark wavey haired big guy standing by the dance floor! Just go and spend some money...YOU MIGHT LIKE IT!
Great Party Spot – This is a great place for all ages. The music is awesome and the food is great as well. It does get a little packed on the weekends, but that's because it is a fun place to hang out with a group. Dress code pretty normal if you go out at all. No ball caps and you need to have sleeves on your shirt. And If you are used to going out, you know that you DO tip. That includes the bathroom attendent that is probably taking care of people who can't when they are too drunk to take care of themselves. Word to the party people... Don't be cheap and take care of the people who take care of you. If you don't want to spend money don't go out.
