Nice place to party.....just need Air Conditioning – I always have fun here no matter the day of the week!! Drinks are a tad bit on the expensive side but the bartender's are always pleasant. The crowd is definitely grown mature and dressed to impress and absolutely no FIGHTING, a real chill spot! The only thing other that I dislike besides the lack of parking and the outrageous prices for admission and drinks, It's not enough air conditioning!!!!!! That's the only reason that I haven't been back.......My hair is tooo fly to sweat it out for 1 night!!! LOL!!
wonderful saturday nights leave your man at home...... – all saturdays nights are off the hook all the men are dress to impress.there are no fights it is a good party amosphere.iwould like to have my party thereby the way the drinks are excellent.the price to get in is not high at all the also have coat check. so when you have some time on your hand get up and come and enjoy yourself and party none stop.
XANADU – Well i disagree i think the club is very different on different days..thursday n friday attract different age groups 21-23, saturday is much more grown 25..no tee's,no sneakers,no hats and not even pradas allowed!...only collard shirts n dress shoes... to me i love the club, if you were expecting to pay 10$ to get into a club this isnt the one you, (your looking for the paradox), yes it a 20$ cover charge but you get what you pay for....everytime i go i have a fun!!! no fights,very good bar service, and good music!! the young lady stated someone just about cursed her out because she was looking for her phone...i dont believe that..i know every bouncer in there, they wouldnt even go there unless some one got out of character...id recommend this club to somebody who was looking for a more growner approach..
MANAGEMENT is HORRIBLE – Food was pretty good, they seem a little confused on the atmostphere. Like ikea meets Thailand...cheep looking tables and chairs. It wasn't the food that sucked, but rather the lame management (gold chains and chest hair). They over charged us by 50 dollars even though we left over 20% tip. We called a bunch of times and they have never returned our calls. Seems like more of late night, post Baltimore Street hang out, creeps and all.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? SOOOOOOO OVER RATED. – So, where do I begin? After paying a $20 cover on a Friday night, and a $3 "manditory" coat check, the expectation would be that great times are ahead, right? WRONG! After a night of mediocre atmosphere, over priced drinks, and an unreasonably pretentious, snooty staff, it was 2 am, and the lights were being tuned on. It was then that I noticed my cell phone was missing, so I proceeded to the back of the bar to check the bathroom, to see if I dropped it there. The bathroom was roped off, and there stood this 5'2 bouncer/police officer. So I asked (nicely), "Excuse me sir, I believe I may have dropped my phone. May I please get by so I can check the bathroom to see if it's in there?" And for no reason he goes, "Let me see if I can break this down for you...Hell no, F*ck no, No Mother F*cking way" and he proceeds to curse at me. After doing his best to embarrass me, he lets me by. As I walk back to the bathroom he yells, "and that better be ALL you do in there!!!" Now, Xanadu, was all that really necessary? You want to be an "upscale" bar, but you are the worst, and could learn a little about what the words "upscale" and "premier" mean. Xanadu is whack, people, so be warned and take you money somewhere else. They deserve to go out of business w/service like that, and I'm not the only one that thinks so. In fact, most people I've spoken to feel the same way. No one goes there but tacky riff raff.
DISASTER – We had the worst dining experience that we have had in years last night at Xanadu. The food we ordered was never served, the service was horrible, and the food was served cold. We were the only table in the dining room at 8:30 p.m. on a Friday night. Avoid Xanadu so that it can succumb from the Baltimore food scene.
DON'T GO!!!!! – Xanadu was HORRIBLE!! We waited an hour and fifteen minutes for food that NEVER CAME. The waiter came by to apologize for the delay and let us know that our dessert would be right out. But we hadn't even gotten our food yet! So after wasting an hour and a half waiting for food, we left the restaurant, bought sandwiches in another restaurant and had to eat in our offices. We had a miserable experience and this was Xanadu's second chance. They are consistently terrible!
Nightclub not a restaurant? – Maybe it is a late place, or maybe the road works out front discouraged visitors, but it was EMPTY at 8:30 on a weekend night. Given this the service was great! The decor was nice though nighclubby for a restaurant. Food was average, pizza starters were ok, one of the mains came with broccoli which was inedible. Xanadu may work as a nightclub but we wouldn't vote on it as a restaurant.
Great menu and atmosphere – Great atmosphere. You walk into a huge beautiful room, with lots of space but still feels intimite. Service is professional, yet friendly. The food is wonderful. The menu is very creative and puts a nice twist on everyday items. Its a great idea for sharing a lot of little things in a large group. The bar offers a good wine selection and a very tempting drink and martini menu. I definitly will go back to try new things. Way too much to try on just one visit.
Best food and dining experience I?ve in Baltimore – This is the best food and dining experience I?ve had since coming to Baltimore. I?ve been a little spoiled living in Manhattan the past three years, but this place takes me back. I like bringing my clients here. The menu is interesting and impressive, and yet I know don?t have to worry about whether or not clients will be able to find something they like. The food is great and presentation is beautiful. The bar is awesome. It?s my colleges and my favorite happy hour spot. We love the sofas around the bar. It?s a great place to hang out, relax and have a few drinks after work. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant. Reservations for dinner are a must, but it?s usually easy to get a table for lunch.
