Disappointed – I went for my 18th birthday with my mom and boyfriend. My boyfriend is into all the rap songs, and when we went he didn't even know but like 5 songs. I am the dancer of the family, so i thought it would be cool to go to a club and just dance the night away. Not knowing the music was hard, I can dance to anything though. We smelt weed coming out of the bathrooms which was distrubing. The ladies paid $5 and my boyfriend had to pay $20. It wasn't really worth the money or the drive. So for my first experience, it wasn't what i thought it would be. Now since then I have been to other clubs and studio 72 has to be the worse mess i ever thought of.
1.5 Years Later and I'm Still Mad About Studio 72 – Studio 72 should be ashamed, charging people as much as they do for a venue and experience that is clearly not worth it. While visiting Atlanta from Chicago I had the unfortunate experience of spending a Saturday night, October 6th, 2007, at Studio 72. My husband and I paid a total of $40.00 to enter a night club that was in a strip mall. That is a bit unusual for us, perhaps because there aren't any strip malls here in the city of Chicago but whatever, $20.00 per person as entrance fee is a rate standard that I can agree with depending on the venue. Studio 72 however, should be charging no more than $5.00 per person, at $20.00 per person; you are just ripping people off.
To justify my negative feelings towards my experience at Studio 72 besides the cost of entry, were the cost of the cocktails, the sparsely stocked bar, the condition of the bathrooms and the overall condition of the establishment itself.
My first choice for a cocktail was a Dirty Vodka Martini. The bartender quickly informed us that she couldn't make one because she did not have olives or olive juice. I thought it was a little strange but I quickly got over it. We proceeded to order drinks for ourselves and two of our friends. Tip included, the total for one round was $51.60. I could not believe it. I understand upscale venues and I feel very strongly that you get what you pay for. However, Studio 72 is a far cry from upscale and yet we paid $51.60 for 4 drinks to be served in plastic cups that were so small that the lemon in my Citron Soda was larger than the actual cup itself. Not to mention that the drinks were severely watered down. For the sake of it being too late to travel anywhere where else, we stayed around, ordered 2 more drinks, a Citron Soda and Vodka Redbull, paid $26.00 for those and continued to find issue with Studio 72.
In the women's bathroom, the stall doors were being held up by ELECTRICAL TAPE. $40.00 to get in, $77.60 for a total of 6 watered down drinks and there is ELECTRICAL TAPE holding up the bathroom doors. The electrical tape also served as door handles for the stalls. There was water or wetness all over the floors and one of the stalls had a BUCKET, not a trash can, but a BUCKET, next to the toilet that was overflowing with sopping wet paper towels, napkins, toilet paper and a glass. I cannot convey in words how disgusting the bathroom was. I had NEVER seen anything like it in my entire life. I took a picture so that I could add it my review of Studio 72. (To see the photo, go to Google Images and search for "Studio 72 + Stall")
What I find the most disturbing is that fact there are media people actually writing positive reveiws about Studio 72. Are they getting paid to do so or did I just happen to go to a different Studio 72? With the exception of the lobby, I saw nothing that looked as plush as the website photos. Like the filthy bathrooms . . . .why weren't those on the website?
For those of you that know motorcycles, I ride a honda VFR 800 that I change the oil and filter on myself. I am a black woman that is not afraid to get her hands dirty yet I refused to actually use the restroom at Studio 72. I held it until I returned to my girlfriend’s home.
At this point, I can think of nothing more to say about Studio 72 except that it is a rip off. There are simply scamming people out of there time and money.
Get in free for b'day party is a scam – 2 girls were brutalized and 1 arrested just because the bouncer would not let them in the club. Their names were on the list for a b'day party but the bouncer wanted them to pay to get in. They were throwing on the ground, against the pole by cops. The girl who got arrested was only trying to help her friend up. DO NOT GO TO THAT CLUB IT IS NOT SAFE. They treated those girls very badly. DO NOT GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I give it 1 star because I couldn't post the comment without it. that club deserve to be closed down.
Do Not Go!!!!!!! – Ok where do I start. It was my friend birthday and we planned dis nit out 4 her and we decided 2 go 2 studio 72. We finally found da club and no one was there. We were da only car n da parkin lot besides da people dat work there. so we waited 4 a while 2 c if people were gonna start comin no one came so we got out 2 go c wat was goin on dey wouldnt let us in cause no one was there. So after talkin 2 security we found out dis club was neva jermaine dupris club they was jus usin his name 4 exposure. If u like partying and u r da only 1 n da club den dis is da place 4 u. If u stil go dere afta u read dis dont say I didnt try 2 tel u.
Bartender Stole my Credit Card Info.. – DO NOT go to this club! This crackhead hellhole sits between a laundry mat and a Dollar General. I had a few overpriced beers and left, only to discover the next day that my debit card info was stolen by the bartender. Someone in Ohio stole $1000 out of my bank account.
Great Time – Me and a few co-workers went and I had a great time. Ladies were free and drinks were free b4 12. Music was nice. Will go back.
Total Disaster – Let me just say that I do recommend this club for anyone. I just had my birthday party there and it was a total disaster. Basically I paid for service that I did not get. I paid for a v.i.p. room and didn't even have my own waitress. The DJ really sucked. They were promoting some reggae night and when I specifically asked if they were going to play reggae all night they said no, but of course they did it anyway. They told me to move all my guest to another room to hear hip-hop and of couse everyone in the club was in this room ( all 30 people who came to the club) because no one wanted to listen to reggae. Seriously we can go to the Royal Peacock for that, if it's still open. But i suggested that they swap DJ's because the rest of the club was empty, they said no. When I asked for some of my money back because my birthday was a total disaster, they said no even though I did'nt sign any contract. Just pure unprofessinalism all around. So to sum it up i will have to contact someone else to see if I can get some results. Bottom line DO NOT GO TO THIS CLUB EVER!!!!!!!!
Pure Disappointment – To keep it short and sweet...
The drinks were OVER PRICED & WATERED DOWN. It took 3 bartenders to get me a diet coke that did not have too much carbonation. However, they still couldn't get it right. Had to switch to Coke.
The HVAC needs to be repaired or upgraded. It was soooo HOT in there, we were sweating after 30 mins (without dancing).
Too 'hood-ish' for me. However, the crowd did get a little classier after 12:30am.
No where to sit down, even at the bar! Unless you want to drop several hundred dollars on VIP seating, which is between the dance floor & bar.
I WILL NOT GO BACK!!
Studio 72 – The grand opening was very nice. Some where since then the club has took a turn for the worst. It went from a nice upscale type to a straight hood club. Mr. Dupri please get your club back intact.
