Interesting story. Where is the part about the police being called to "THE MANSION" last night (8/19/11). Seems a brawl broke out and numerous people where involved. Portsmouth Police and Fire & Ambulance arrived on the scene and rumor has it that there may have been a member of Portsmouth City Council involved in the "happening"! What was sold to City Council as a venue for "Wedding Receptions..Reunions..etc. was no more than a clever way to mask a "NIGHT CLUB" by any other name. Shame on the owners who have mis-represented their real intentions and the city for not seeing the use permit application for what it really was a "Night Club" I'm shocked!

The idiots fought and raised hell long before this place opened.

I visted this club 10/15/11 to partake in a birthday celebration, I along with another friend paid a total of $400 for VIP access. We were treated rudely and they ladies with us were cursed. When we attempted to talk with management, security became physical and a shoving match ensued. The management and security were classless. I will never visit there again and would reccommend any person of class or diginity to stay away.
