Got to admit, place rocks! Nice sound system, great lighting, and best yet, great crowd, had a great time, made some great contacts, reminds me of the good music clubs in Boston. Definitely worth checking out!

bartenders unfriendly, drinks expensive, bartenders jerks, bathrooms disgusting, bottle service rediculously overpriced for a club in the VALLEY, even on a night where the promotion was good and the place was packed, which is rare, AURA

This was flat out the worst experience I have ever had at a bar or restaurant. Server got the following wrong: 3 drink orders (beers, not mixed drinks), 2 sandwich orders, and took 3 hours (from 7pm-10:15pm) to bring the order out. No

Pros: Trendy Hollywood Scene

Cons: Just about everything else you could imagine; terrible all around!

This place does not even deserved a star. Long line to get in, rude bouncers, ganster mentality, way overpriced at $20.00 a head, expensive drinks, poor ventilation, expensive valet, and the crowd it attracts are kids waiting to pick a

Great little place and great staff. Would definitely go back. The spinach dip is great! Ha Ha! The Comedy show is a must see. The Freelance and Tito Events are always fun to attend to.

Went to check out some bands at this place and I was blown away by the incredible sound. The bartender was hot and wasn't afraid to make my Jack and Coke nice and strong.\r

Nice surroundings...Good music. But if you encounter the wicked witch of the West behind the bar....ASK for a new bartender!!!! She was so rude! I found out when I complained that I was one of hundreds! She is one of the "managers"...So

I've been to this club a couple times, and I like it. I've only been on Fridays and Saturdays. The line isn't ever too long, and if it is, it doesn't take long to get in. I don't drink that much, but the few times I went to the bar it took

Food was less than desirable! \r
Went to Aura for a BDay party with bias due to the consistent negative reviews. Surprisingly, the staff was great providing additional sitting and moved tables to accommodate our needs (18 people). At 10 pm

If you plan on celebrating your birthday at Aura, be prepared to be highly disappointed. My birthday experience here was horrible.. The bouncers at the door played favoritism in letting only "cute" and "inappropriately dressed" women in,

This place is TERRIBLE. There is no such thing as bringing Hollywood to the Valley. This place had the worst DJ who couldn't even transition or play songs in entirety. The drinks were mediocre, the crowd was aweful, and the doorman was

Since this was my first time at Aura I didn't really know what to expect, but I ended up having a really good time. They played really great music all night long. The place was really crowded but not overwhelming and lots of people were on

This club wishes it were in Hollywood but would never survive if it were really there. C'mon, it's in the valley and it acts as if it were a hot club. The service is really terrible; the bartenders were really rude. They had terrible

At 7:00 pm on a Friday night, we were the only ones there and the service was still slow. When the Bar Tendress started at 8:00 I was her first customer and she already had a miserable attitude. At $28 for 2 Margaritas and a coke, they

I went there on a Friday night over Thanksgiving weekend. Music was a good mix of hip hop r&b and reggaeton. The crowd tended to be dressed nice, which is what I like. Moderate number of plush booths and bar stools. The focus is all on

We went there with a large group of people for dinner, and it was terrible. It took them 45 minutes to bring out appitizers, and then they brought people's food out one by one. It was 3 hours after we ordered before the last person had

After being deceived by the photography and one positive review, my friends and i decided to try Aura. I was truly shocked upon entering. It looked like a village hall with a bar on one side and terribly designed seating on the other.

Despite the velvet rope, the doormen were kind and inviting. Upstairs, the atmosphere is cool and funky. The DJ sits risen in the middle of the bar. Red velvet booths line the walls, spacious bar and great dance floor. Bartenders were
