Well, not to be a negative Nancy, but when I attended I was given hateful looks and insulted by most of the women, and all the men seemed to think it was okay to touch me inappropriately when I walked by.
Several fights broke out which prompted many clubgoers to run like maniacs, not caring who they ran over, to observe the fight and "hoot & holler".
I was treated poorly by the bartending women, who took a half hour to give me a bottled beer. Many of them were busy flirting with men or checking their outfits or phones.
The dance floor was a nightmare. Absolute nightmare. While it was interesting watching most dance in unison, it was aggravating to get yelled at and told that I was doing it wrong because I chose not to follow. I go to dance to let loose and feel free, but I was told more than once to get lost, that I was ruining the "groove". It felt like a dance competition at it's worst.
I will never attend again, and I can't say that I feel any sense of loss at the closing of this club.
The fact that it was 99% black was frustrating as well. I couldn't understand that until I was insulted unnecessarily because I didn't "know where my place was". They push you out if you aren't like them and make you fearful of returning. I attended with one other Latina and her Caucasian boyfriend. He was the only white man there and he received a lot more harassment than I did.
So I now attend Masque because everyone there simply cares about having fun and no f---ks are given as to your race, dance style or outfit.
