Since they let go of DeeJay Grial cause they didn't want to meet his price...things started to go down. The second thing that makes a good bar or club after service is good music...
The other dj's they hired just wouldn't cut it. It seems Th3 Draft is heading in that direction. It's started to suck.

Si hombre está bueno. And I suppose that's why Ink is still such a thriving success. Grial doesn't SUCK but he IS way over-rated, the only ones who don't know it are him and his little wanna-be dj friends.

What kind of music is in demand at lounge or bars or clubs for that matter now a days.? What does it mean that the music sucks? What is it that people expect from a DJ?

Southbound lost business when Th3 Draft opened, and he had long been gone before they started struggling....... and Grial was the first dj at the Draft. The Draft isn't good because of the music alone....location is a big advantage. Plus it offers two areas for music...the main bar for those who like top 40, hip hop and Chancey's cumbias. Outside for all those people from Mexico that prefer EDM.

NOw Ink.... you can't blame that on Grial alone. The place was huge and could house over 600 people....so if only 100 showed up it looked empty. They also had a $10 cover charge. Plus the bar service sucked due to the machines that measured the liquor.

But obviously Grial must have rubbed someone the wrong way....cause if you got people hating... he must be doing something right.... at least it got the lemmings talking. Good or bad publicity is still publicity.

I heard the Casino is opening an entertainment lounge in mid 2013. They're gonna be having live music and comedy acts at the new joint. Can't wait.

Southbound would work as a biergarten. Imagine a variety of beers on tap with an outdoor dining area, serving things like BBQ sandwiches. They were on the right track, but screwed it up when they got greedy and tried to jam as many people as possible in there.

Told you! Grial hasn't been at Th3 Draft in a while and ever since, its been starting to suck. Ever since the son of the owner took over the place as manager he started to cheap out,especially hiring all the good for nothing djs. If Grial is not one of the best djs. Then how come he gets gigs in Acuna, Del Rio, SA, Dallas, Houston.....ect
All those posting bad comments about Deejay Grial are probably the poor pathetic djs that were hired to replacing Grial at Southbound, who tried to fill his shoes,but failed miserably!!!!

If Ink failed was simple cause everything was wrong about, bad location, who wants to drive drunk where troopers are waiting for you, the restrooms you had to share with the kiddies from the bowling alley, the club had no appeal what-so-ever, it was just a huge square black room with no especial lighting no decors, the sitting was horrible, felt like I was playing tea, in those tiny tiny sits. Not to mention the makeshift bar and the inadequate bartenders. Failure was inevitable!

I agree. Why does Red Bull hire DJ Grial all the time? Yet all the local djs stay.. well local.
