Not Busy, Bad Customer Service, Don't Waste Your Time – I went to Tongue and Groove the other night because I got a facebook invite and thought it was something good~ they have some big night called Hangover Tuesday.
When we first walked up there was no line at ALL which didn't seem good but I just told myself it was still a little early (It was 11:30) and when we got in it wasn't crowded at all but it wasn't completely empty either. More like a bar than a party scene.
People weren't really dancing in the small space there is to dance, mostly just standing around talking. We got our drinks pretty quickly but like I said it wasn't crowded.
My main issue is the fact that we were charged more than double what our drink tab was on our bank account (and the drinks are not cheap) and when i called the owner to get it worked out, taken off, whatever, his response was "That's not urgent, take it up with the bank" *CLICK*!
No wonder the place was so empty on it's biggest night, the owner is a jerk.
What a Night! Loved it @ T & G – I really enjoyed this place. I went out with all my friends and had a blast.
The cocktail waitresses were smokin' hot and I love the music.
Just to let everyone know, the majority of my group of friends was black. From my experience they would never turn someone down because they are black. And they certainly did not give myself or any of my friends a problem.
They WILL however turn you away if you are dressed in street clothes or sneakers. So if your not dressed to impress don't even bother. They are strict about it.
Other than that, the club had a nice mix of all ethnicity types and bottom line everyone in the club was looking real good.
Don't miss a chance to go check them out. What a refreshing change of scenery to some of the other ghetto fabulous clubs out there in Atlanta.
Again, They never turn away anyone by skin color! but they will turn away ghetto. Use common sense!
Check it out, you will have a great time
Blacks Turn Back – I was turned away due to my skin color. I was told my Ralph Lauren Polo was not the correct attire for Friday night. I was very disappointed, so I sat and watched many enter the establishment. I even saw a guy with a Tshirt enter. I asked again, why wasn't I allowed entry and I was told to speak to the manager on Monday.
Tongue and Groove was the first club I went out to after moving here from another city and I instantly felt at home! Everyone was so nice and accomodating! I had a great time, met a lot of new people, and the music was great! I highly reccomend this place to anyone looking for a great night out!!
Tongue and Groove Forever – I booked a table at this place and had an amazing time. My girls and I were able to pull right up to the valet and walk in through the vip door, bypassing the ridiculous line. We were greeted by a sexy host who checked us in and arranged for us to be escorted to our table. Once at our table we were greeted by a super sweet waitress who took our order, poured all of our drinks, made us shots, and basically put my girls and me at ease. She took care of stragglers that tried to approach our tables uninvited, made sure we never had an empty glass in our hands and went above and beyond to personally escort my guests to the restrooms as needed. I highly recommend this place if you are a female who loves going out with her girls.
terrible – Im so disappointed of this club. I spend 1 hr out side in rain. Aggressive security was pushing me like im not a person ... I dont know ... Maybe that was wrong day for me. In side... smoky ... over priced drinks ... I dont know hwat to think ... I know Im not coming back ... :(
good luck to you...
Nice Spot - Rude Staff – Apparently when they opened this new location they were thinking they were in the heart of L.A.
I don't know if they have to have a certain number of each race and gender inside (if so they should say so) but both times that I've gone they have held a certain race at the door.
I had my birthday party there October 16th - I wanted a nice classy place to go dance and have fun with friends...only they wouldn't let some of my friends in!! i got there early to reserve a spot and only the people who came with me got in. My other girlfriends showed up 30 minutes later (10:30) and were held at the front of the line for 1 hour and 20 minutes!! While they were standing in the cold as the NEXT people to come in the door man would leave the door, walk down the line and hand pick who could go in (he was Asian), he picked only a handful of white people and a lot of Asians - which he called "his family".
To make it worse when people asked why they couldn't get in (something they had on or needed to change) he would ignore them completely as if they didn't exisit no head nod, no eye contact, NOTHING. When I went to the door to get the remainder of my party in I was rudely brushed off with a "NOT RIGHT NOW".
Long story short I ended up leaving and I will NEVER go there again! As someone who works in advertising we are always looking for new, nice, fun, classy places to house events - most of my co-workers were there night attending Breast Cancer Awareness Fund Raiser and checking out the new location. However, after the way my friends and I were treated that night I will tell everyone including my staff and co-workers to NEVER support a place that so racially profiles.
By the way - this was my second time there...the first time I still got in but they were turning away Asian people. WTF Atlanta is a mixing pot and money is money there is no need to discriminate!
