The area of this club is very industrial and I did not see one
residential building anywhere close to this club. The street runs parallel
to train tracks (similar to Oz) and the
only non-industrial business I saw was what appears to be a tiny bar down
The outside of this club almost looks like a library or some governmental
office. You can valet park from the front and your car will be parked inside
the building next to the club, or park in the self parking lot in the back
of the club. However, if you park in the back, it's a a little bit of a walk
all the way around to the front entrance because the building is pretty big.
Not only that but there is no sidewalk so you'll have to walk on the street.
The entrance is a small lobby area like most of the other Rhinos and
currently, there is no cover charge. In fact, there is not even a minimum
drink so you can literally go here for free and not spend one cent. I'm sure
this will all change when things start to pick up. The entry door has a door
handle to open which is different from other Rhinos which just has a door
that you push open. Maybe this is temporary.
As you enter, the elegant alcohol filled bar is to the right. The bar has
all the hard alcohol that you could ask for, along with a plasma screen to
watch some ESPN. Drink prices vary but a soft drink will cost $3.25. Past
the bar on the same side are the bathrooms.
The stage is medium to large, in the usual Rhino style with the expensive
lighting and is connected to the wall which houses both the DJ and the
dressing room. The club is pretty large and there are tables and chairs all
over the place. There are nook and crannies here and there as well as lap
areas on the left. Past the stage, there is another separate room with 3
pool tables. This room has more TVs and a video game. The club is large but
not massive. The high ceiling allows for a chandelier to be above, creating
an elegant look.
The club just opened so I didn't expect much in terms of talent. I saw a
couple that was okay but they were not full of talent or customers on their
first Saturday night. I watched a girl do a few mild lap dances but did not
get any myself. The laps are currently $15 and the girl keeps all of it.
Speaking of which, they have a large dressing room (currently without
lockers) with a tanning bed, vending machine and a makeup artist. The girls
also have their own bathroom which they don't have to share with female
customers. All that sounds like Vegas level stuff for the girls. For now,
there is no house fee but I'm sure that'll change in the future.
All in all, the look is as good as any Rhino that I've seen except it's a
little bigger than most (but not as big as
Rialto). The bar is not as fancy
as Van Nuys (with their stage/bar)
but nice. I don't think they have any competition there so it might take off
in the future. I've been told that they are targeting
Fritz so we'll have to see what happens
next. For now, it's free so it's a good place to just hang out, drink and
location but first class inside.
for just opening. This will probably go up in the future.
means more chit chat possible.
here for anything crazy.
