This nightclub is all about dancing. With three stories of dance floors, Libation has eclectic music, great drinks and plenty of room to dance. I was here with a beautiful woman and we had plenty of room to dance without being pressed too

Great club! I did enjoy my night out over there; music was fine, the service and drinks were not bad at all. Really nice atmosphere. We were a bit skeptical regarding the door policy though..the first time we went there the line was huge,

I really wish I could love this place, I do. The food is fly, the design is fly, but the people.\r

Just, damn. Hire some nicer service. That's all. When I don't feel hated on at this place, i'll up this to five stars.

This place was definitely not the worst place I've ever been to...but also not the best. I had fun dancing with my friends but I think we could've had fun anywhere. One thing I don't understand - the only bathroom is on the top floor?!

The mixed drink menu is amazing especially the libation lemonade! The staff is always courteous and goes the extra mile to provide service.

This bar/club/lounge is not worth going to. I went this past Saturday night, the music was bad because the DJ didn't transition well, he would play hip hop and then jump right into something slow. The crowd was unattractive and boring.
