I visited on time a couple weeks ago, had just landed and picked up my sis and headed over to the club. The DJ was 'slamming' and the drinks were flowing... i had a blast!!! it was a Thursday night so i can't speak for any other night

I went here over the weekend. The crowd was hype but the venue was too small for the amount of guests. The leather seats need to be redone they had holes in them, probably from women standing on them in their heels. They opened the bottom floor but didnt hype it up so no one moved down to it. Mad Scientist, DJ Magic and DJ Apache set up the vybz for a disappointment with DJ Legend during the primetime hours. The drinks were expensive but pretty good. Overall a good experience besides the music towards the end. No new reggae music was played and hardly any new Rap and R&B, the man clearly did not know his music. I recommend this club if you do bottle service, if not be ready to be squished among the crowd of other guests.

Pros: music, nice bathroom attendant

Cons: overcrowded, expensive drinks, bathroom not all that great on first floor

well, I don't usually write reviews, but since I frequent citysearch i thought I would help you guys out. Aura is pretty much an awful bar. I went there last night (a saturday) for a friends birthday and it was way too crowded (but with no obvious standards or dress code) the front door people were rude, and the drinks are very expensive. On the subject of drinks, our bartender was completely clueless. We asked her to make 3 different shots and she didn't know any of them. Finally she pretended to know the fourth and made it completely wrong (bailys in a shot that is supposed to be jager, peach and cran, really?) We ended up not getting shots, instead just a vodka sour and a vodka cran.. and she must have asked me 4 times what i ordered. They were the weakest drinks I have ever had, and I'm a lightweight. FINALLY the cherry on top was that when i handed her my credit card to pay $22 for two well vodka drinks she said "oh sorry its a $50 dollar minimum and an automatic 20% tip, so do you want to leave it open"

over all, it is bad, overpriced and not worth the trip.

Nasty, nasty club! The bathrooms smelled like urine and the place is decorated cheap and cheesy. I went there on a Saturday night and the music and sound system was awful! Old songs and with some new radio songs thrown in with bad sound.

Some friends and I went to Aura last night because Wednesdays are supposed to be a professional after work party. The flyer said open bar until 7pm and free buffet until 8pm. We got there at 6:30pm and were told the open bar is closed and it was only house vodka. They did have food, but it ran out around 7:15. In terms of the crowd...it appeared that the men were a good 5 years younger than the women. Additionally, when I hear professional after work party I assume dress pants and shoes not jeans, sneaks, and outfits with too much cleavage. We stayed an hour and a half and left. We were told that everyone did come from work (I really hope folks didn't wear some of those outfits to work)...perhaps they were coming from jobs that don't require dress clothes (hhhhmmm and that is all I have to say about that). With all that being said, I will not be going back.

Pros: Was free to get in

Cons: Wasn't even worth it even though it was free
