A Diamond in The Rough – Well I just celebrated my birthday at Studio 72 and yes, it was shocking to me that it was in a strip mall but as I have noticed a lot of Atlanta clubs are in strip malls. Essos, Velvet Room, Strokers, Dreamz is at the mexican flea market. And I am sure that Jermaine Dupri had a reason for that location. Anyway, it took a minute for me and my party to get in because of the long line but I couldn't complain because I spent $150.00 for 20ppl and I got a table with a btl of champagne so I could not complain, you know? The dj was ok but I think they switched djs that night because at about 1am, I was partying. I didnt know they stayed open until 5am. They need to promote that more. Security was a little strict. The bathroom needs a little more and the food I ordered took too long. It was too hott and they need to fix the a/c. My waitress was ok, she really wasn't attentive but she got me drinks and I got drunk. It was a great party for me and I suggest that everyone celebrate their birthdays there. I also like the guys that walk around with no shirts.
JERMAINE PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW AND MAKE THE NECESSARY IMPROVMENTS – First this club has 7 reveiws on this site. 5 of them are terrible, but they still are listed with 3 1/2 stars!? This place should get 2 stars or less by anyone who isn't just on hear trying to help the club's likeability. Let me say that I am from Atlanta. I had never been to this club, but had company in town. I embarrased myself, and all of Atlanta by doing this! First, we were hustled in the parking lot by the valet staff. They couldnt decide if it was $20 or $10 to park valet. Second, we were bored to death in line by one of the door people trying to be a comedian by making vulgar and dry jokes. Third, when we entered the club, we heard two different sets of music going on. One was from the 'DJ' (if that's what you wanna call him) and the other set was from a private party going on in a separate (but open) room next to the bar. It sounded like two high school kids trying to compete to see whose music could go the loudest. I went to the bar, where the bartender was very rude. I told her I wanted two long island ice teas, she brought back two drinks and told me it was $27!!!!!!!!! Sorry, but Strokers nightclub has the best long islands for $5 all night! And the Irish Pub has them for $7 and they are bigger than both Strokers and Studio 72! So whats really going on! Is JD huring for money? If not, is he trying make his patrons hurt for money? What's good? Then when I told the bartender that I didnt want the drinks if they were that much and I wasnt going to sign the receipt on my credit receipt, she got smart and tried to call a manager. The manager didnt even come over! Then she actually charged my card, without my signature! I disputed it through my bank and got the money back! We tried our luck at the other bar to see if we could get a drink menu. Sorry. Rude waitress there too! She wouldn't give me a drink menu or tell me the name of the drink that she had just fixed for another patron. In total, we were there for about 40 minutes before we left!
Hot Spot – I was shocked to see the location of the club. Its between a Dollar General and a Laundrymat. I am glad to say I ignored the location because the club was hot. Its really nice with a lot of vip rooms. Its different from all the clubs I've been to. I guess its a must see club in my books. Check it out for urself.
sub-standard – Poor location, nice lobby but mediocre inside, super over-priced drinks (I paid $12 for a watered-down drink in a small plastic cup), avoid on fridays (unless you dont mind feeling like your at a high school dance). I honestly expected more from JD, especially the location. He had to have just financed it not really playing an active role in this, because it wasnt well thought out. Will never go back again...and I got in free. (Now that's just sad). Sorry...just keepin it real.
Definitely not worth the hype. – The good thing about Studio 72 is that if it's your birthday you get a VIP table with free bottle of champane and 19 people on a guest list. BUT first of all, I really expected someone as notorious as JD to pick a better location (perhaps in the city) and not next door to a Dollar Genaral. 2), the night just started off wrong when the lady "bouncer" basically molested me and my friends upon entering.. im not talkin normal brush down, I mean groping (underneatth bras, super pat downs, take EVERYTHING out of your purse.... and you can't even take cameras in so be aware, they will make you go back to your car). Yeah sure, the lobby is nice, but you're there for 2 seconds. The VIP tables don't have velvet ropes or anything so random people will just be sitting in your space throughout the night. We saw our waitress maybe 3 times, you're better off going to the bar. Drinks are very overpriced for the size also. Maybe Saturday night is better but 95.5 The Beat must have sent their worst DJ and there were far too many minors (our mistake for going to an 18+). WAY to many girls, and not enough guys. The guys that were there, not cute.... And girls there are borderline hoodrats. Overall experience, two thumbs down.
DONT! DONT! DONT! DONT! DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE OF STUDIO 72! – I heard so much about this "club" that I really thought it was suppose to be a hotspot for young people to experience the fabulous life. Well on the contrary it was so passe.I flew in from NY and wanted to visit the infamous Studio 72. Driving down and coming upon this club at a strip mall made me almost want to lose my mind as it was discreetly nestled between a Dollar General Store and a Laundromat. But I tried to keep my wits about me. I walked in with my best girlfriends and paid $20 to see a beautiful lobby leading me to believe that on the other side of its doors was the place of all places to be in Atlanta or shall I say Tucker, GA. Even if it was reminiscent of Studio 54 I knew it would be off the chain perse.
Well what word am I looking for to describe this "club" other than...GHASTLY!
I mean I thought I would be wowed by the scenery, the people, the atmosphere, the dj. Instead I was Ughed by the entire experience. If I wanted to go to an below average to average joint with a dj who was whack I would have went there and paid maybe $2.00 in WEST BUBBLEFXXK! However I paid $20 for first class and received ...whats worse than coach?
We stayed and hour too long but once we left we breathed a sigh of relief! So I write this to say if you have nothing better to do and you like wasting your time this place is not even up to your par! You might have better luck at the Dollar General next door. At least you can find what your looking for and it will cost a dollar!
HECK NO!!!!!!!!!!!! – This is not the place to be as a visitor of Georgia.
1) "When to Go JD himself hosts on Saturday nights. Look for theme nights during the week." MISLEADING ADVERTISEMENT.
2) The ratio of women to men is like 10 to 1 and the men are not even worth stepping to.
3) THERE IS NO DRESS CODE - the men stepped up in there with sneakers and jeans.
4) MUSIC IS STRAIGHT WACKITY WACK - if the club was in the city JUST MAYBE they would play a mixture of music.
5)They charged $5 for a small bottle of water.
6) the bathrooms were nasty. My friend had to hold the door closed in order for another friend to be able to use the bathroom.
7) Too much smoking
Overall, do not waste your time at this club. It is not worth the hype or the $20 paid to get in.
The only beauty of the club is the lobby.
Studio 72 a disgrace...I can't believe Dupri would attach his name to a club like this....horrific – I give this club 2 thumbs down. If you are looking for a ritzy club then do not go there. It is situated in a strip mall beside a dollar general and a laundromat...need i say more. The music was very whack...I thought that the music was very one-sided, meaning down-south music all night. I'm from nj and I was hoping to hear a mixture of music but didn't find it there. The club was full of underdressed and pretentious people standing around looking to see who was checking them out. If you like listening to the same music that you can hear by tuning in on your fm dial go there. If you are looking for a mixture of music and dj's that play music that isn't on the radio every three minutes don't go there.
Atlanta music mogul's first hide-away OTP club is perfect for night crawlers and celeb stalkers alike. – In Short
Tucked away into a strip mall off Lawrenceville Hwy sits Jermaine Durpi's night club, Studio 72. Inspired by the legendary discotheque Studio 54, this massive space is what you'd come to expect from one of the town's greatest entertainers. An 850-gallon aquarium greets night-timers in style as they walk in, and extravagant VIP areas are decked out with hot tubs, waterfalls and complimentary cigars.
Sexiest Place to Dance – I had an excellent time at this place. It looks very classy inside. I wasn't harassed by immature men like in other places I've been to in Atlanta. Everyone was dressed to impressed. The other females didn't seem like haters and everyone was dancing on point to Jermaine Dupri's instructions.
