    Post Spin Nightclub

    So what do you guys/gals think of it so far? questions, comments, opinions? please share, id like to hear them.

    edit: for those out of the loop "Spin Nightclub" is the newly renovated "Metro" across from Chinook which has been bought up by new ownership and opened to the public last Thursday.

    Note: the club is still under extensive construction, things are such a rush trying to get things ready for the weekends.

    I went there just this past weekend as a part of a pub crawl saturday night.

    And well.....spin is pretty crappy. Looks like a grayer Metro. Nothing has changed really. Well the Dj booth is elevated.....

    otherwise the bars are all in the same place.....dancefloors pretty much in the same place....

    nothing to impressive.

    try this. dont open until you're ready. i find this works rather well.
    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    True, but I recommend you start looking for a job in 3 months, because in 6 you won't have one.

    thats not a good thing, i went to metro once, one of my biggest rreasons for never going back was the stupid lineup.

    Haven't been yet but overall I only go to bars with cheap drinks and no line-up or places where I know enough people to go in the back.

    I have to go there tonight, I hate bars so i'll probably not like this one.

    Last time i went to metro you practically had to grab the bartender to get a drink.

    Here's a hint: Metro sucked, and people are telling you that its just metro with new paint. That's your first indication.

    I'll go even further with reasons why Metro sucked:

    There are better bars in the city. If i'm going out, i'm not going to Metro because there are better places to spend money in.

    Too many hardcore punks there. I've never been to Spin, but word of mouth of a powerful thing. And I won't be going there - Metro made the Taz look mature.

    Lineups suck - nothing you can really do about that, but if theres a lineup, I won't go. Same with a lot of people. And they will develop that mentality and not go period.

    Hope that helps. Good luck with the new place.

    Metro had HANDS DOWN the worst crowd this side of the Cecil hotel, and that's INCLUDING the Back Alley. The rejects that loved the Palace will most certainly end up there and I have no desire/intention to fraternize with those types of low-lifes. That should just about cover my perspective/opinion on Spun.

    I think there is a ton that can be done about that. The bouncers take their sweet ass time letting people in and it seems to be done for effect. At a lot of places they'll be keeping people back and not letting people go in and finally when you get in you realize there are more people on the outside waiting to go in than on the inside. Cowboys is very good at this. I'm just happy I don't have to wait too often.
