It's not discrimination, most clubs don't let guys dance on the stages anywhere... and most clubs want their patrons to dress to impress so tucking in your shirt is normal. If you're gunna get upset then don't go.

I was wearing a polo shirt when I was told by the Huge security guard at the door that I had to tuck my shirt in. Huge however not muscle, anyways I asked him why did you point me out when the guy infront of me is wearing a dress shirt thats not tucked in. I have a polo shirt you dont tuck these shirts in. His only reply was well I asked you to tuck your shirt in . So what policy is that, oh yeah and why dont the security guys have their shirts tucked in ......mmmmmm maybe because he is about 100lbs over weight........I found his attitude and appearance to be very unprofessional.......from what I hear from other people the staff there is know for being quite difficult..........

my friend and i visited cielo for the first time this weekend he is gay and im sure everybody could see that. He tried to dance on one of the stages but as soon as he got up there he got asked to get down what i didnt understand was why one of the girls that was showing half her butt was not asked to come down if i wanted a strip show i would have gone else where.

I'm a little confused by this place. Granted, I am from MIami so I have high expectations for clubs when it comes to dance music. This place is pretty strange. Most of the club you can't even see the DJ, dance floor is exceptionally small, the VIP section is a complete waste of money.

Not all bad though- service is great! The bartenders are quick and friendly and the drink prices are very good. They book great artists, I just wish it was easier to enjoy the DJs that do show up. I also really enjoy the other patrons. I've made quite a few friends there and it seems no one goes to Sky in a bad mood!

The staff @ this club really is great. If you are kind to them, they are kind to you. If you act like a bigshot & are just trying to get in free.. they could care less if you attend. The people that come to dance & support the events and dj's are the best! and there are alot of them!.. Most people don't realize what kind of stress goes into hosting such large events. The staff of sky & the others (Eternal Network & staff) work very hard to provide Austin with good music & a good experience.. they do a great job of it!

Cons: Hefty cover charge... but well worth it

I walked in at 9:40 p.m. tonight, paid $40 cover for my girlfriend and I to get in to a show that was advertised as beginning at 10:00 p.m. and found that the entertainment would not be performing until 12:00 a.m. We used the restroom and immediately reconsidered staying for 2 hours to see a show we'd planned on leaving around the time we came to find it was going to begin and asked the door person for our money back (the place had less than 20 people inside). She was rude, but got the owner. I asked the owner for a reimbursement of our cover charges given the fact we had been in the establishment for less then 5 minutes and he then proceeded to explain that had we been there for less than five minutes (as if to imply that we had been there longer) he would refund our money, but because it was already in the register, he would not grant the request. I began to argue the point that I had just mentioned that we were there not more than five minutes when the bouncers began to close in. I removed the band that had been placed on my wrist and threw it in the club owners face. The proprietors of Sky Lounge can keep my $40 and i'll never be back and I hope others read this and are put off by a club owner that, during SXSW, would refuse to refund a cover charge under such circumstances. If I ever go back, it will be because I am going to see an artist that simply does not come and perform locally at any other establishment.

Cons: The money grubbing owner.

tried sky lounge tonight for sasha -- BIG DISAPPOINTMENT -- small dance floor, speakers only surrounded dance floor, people ribbing you constantly, ridiculous dress code. cooler than thou attitude.
my suggestion to sky lounge -- get better speakers and extend them to other areas if you expect to host big name electro shows. otherwise you are going to DISAPPOINT your dancers.
pros: nice bartenders, good drink specials. that's about it. sorry.

Sky Lounge is Austin's hotspot for live eletronic music, if you love house, trance or just follow the hotest global dj's this multilevel venue is the place for you. The crowd is typically classy and up for a good time & the bartenders are always HOT.

just wanted to let all the progressive dance music fans know that Sky Lounge is the place to be. Been to Dallas and San Antonio for many shows but Sky is the place to be for the ultimate dance experience! The place is awesome, love the light show and the sound system. They always have the best Djs spinning. Don't know what people see when they go in there but i think the management is doing a great job. I actually met Eli, the general manager, i think the guy knows very well what's going on and how to operate.The Bartenders also did a good job. It did get a little hot in there but i guess when you have that many people, there's not much that can be done. Sky Lounge Rocks!

I definitely like the place and am prepared to go back for other shows. Just make sure that you use cash and not a tab as the place can get busy and mistakes do happen from time to time ...

I am very disappointed with this place. Whoever the promoters are need to be shot. First of all we bought VIP tickets for almost $80 and when we got there we were informed that there was no VIP and no free drink. Okay fine, we love John Digweed enough to put up with that. I just looked at my bank account. They charged our credit card $50 MORE than what we had for drinks!! We are going to try and contact someone about this but I am sure because they are so shady we will get no help.

Don't be fooled by these people with the bad comments. Skylounge is the place to be for good dirty house, minimal, tech, trance in all of Austin or in Texas for that matter. Mostly all the dj's are exceptional. They play the newest stuff alot of stuff that isn't released on juno yet. Plus they have world class dj's that are trendy. Sorry, no Paul Oakenfold here but new dj's like M.A.N.D.Y. , Sandra Collins, etc... The chicks are also hot and the bartenders are good. Every place has a cover charge now. Lastely the only bad thing about this place is the management. The guy walks around like with a grumpy look on his face. Go on a Saturday night when there is a guest dj. You won't regret it....

Sky Lounge is a decent dance club but if you are going to one of their special DJ events hosted by Disco Productions don't be fooled into buying a VIP ticket. Myself and several friends have purchased VIP tickets for a couple of their shows (most recently Derrick Carter) and have not received any of the promised perks. I don't know if its a problem with the promoter or the venue though. When I tried to address the problem with a person who was supposedly a manager, he said he would look into it but never got back to me.

Despite those problems, I would go back for future events but I would pay the regular ticket price. The bartenders were great and the drinks was good for the price. I've been on regular non-event nights and the music was great and the service was good as well.

I used to go here with all my friends back in the day and it was awesome. Crowd was good looking, staff was good looking, management knew what they were doing, it was the place to be. NOW.....it is full of trashy looking people that dress up to make themselves feel cool, half the staff is good lookin the other half looks like they just stepped off the street, and the management doesn't know what they are doing. They walk around looking confused, obviously not caring anything about the place which is one reason the place is always dead. What kind of person wants to hang out at a bar where even the management doesn't care? The place is a trainwreck...goin downhill fast.

They have some of the cheapest and BEST drinks in the Warehouse District. I had seen on here that one guy had recommended to ask for Cindy or Cory, so I took his advice...they both made me feel like they have known me forever. Was a stroke of luck they were working together that night I believe. It didn't get crowded until around midnight, but it seemed as those the flood gates opened and people started pouring in. The crowd of people I was with, myself included had a great time. Awesome music..dance music seems to played later in the night, awesome drinks......awesome service and atmosphere. Definately check this place out...but like I said..the crowd is a later one.

I just moved here from New York and was somewhat dissapointed with the club scene here. Some buddies of mine told me to try this place so I gave it a shot. I was extremely impressed with the overall atmosphere and service. It was the first bar I have been to here where the bartenders actually know what they are doing. I recommend this place highly and also suggest asking for Cory or Cindy. They are probably two of the best bartenders I have been to since I moved here. Highly recommend the place.

I agree that the $20 minimum on cards is ridiculous. We didn't find out till after we got in (before cover started) that to see the special dj we had to go OUTSIDE and to the ALLEY... where we ended up paying cover. The doorman was rude too. Vibe was tired and uninterested. Nice decor, but too stuck up and pretentious for me. I'll stay on 6th street. Don't waste your time.

$20 minimum on credit cards, what the heck is that? I've been clubbing a long time in a number of cities and I don't think I've ever seen that. Of course, if it hadn't been boring, I might have been able to stay long enoguh to charge $20, but as it was there was a one drink maximum.

With all the good options downtown, why should I spend any time at this lame place?

This place is cool enough to keep me coming back but sometimes I wonder. I've been there when it's been completely dead and the music was terrible, undancable drivel. But I've also been there when they itty bitty dance floor was way too crowded. The new fenced-off seating in the back is nice if you want privacy but annoying if you keep having to walk around the wall to dance, drink, or firt.

Forget what all these wannabes are saying. Sky Lounge plays excellent, up to date music. There is a good mix of trance, house, electronic, and general techno. The crowd is beautiful and the place is very nice. Things get started pretty late, usually after midnight, but it gets crowded quickly. The place closes at 2:15, but they are very classy about letting people leave at their own pace until about 2:45. The cover is reasonable. Check it out for yourself and you'll see that most of the negative reviews are garbage.

this night spot needs to seriously examine their so called "trendy" dance scene. as a visitor to austin from houston i was looking for a hot dance spot in this up and coming town. i have concluded that it doesnt exist. the music that was being played here is from the past. the crowd is full of pretty people, however, the lighting sucks and the vip room is a scam to all of the naive who think that being there makes them important. i have seen hundreds of clubs like this come and go in the houston area and i speculate that this one remains in austin simply due to lack of alternatives.
