So myself, my boyfriend and a few other buddies came here to bring in the new year. The anoucement on the radio said ten dollars before 10, but they charged me 20 bucks...ok, cool, disappointed, but whatever. Got inside, warmed up, because of the overcrowed club that didn't take long at all. After my first drink, my man and I went straight to the dance floor. After that we kinda got shoved off the floor (not on purpose, but it was so packed, it was easy to get shifted) we ended up in so called private area that wasn't "roped-off" as a normal VIP area would be, and one of the guys told secruity to have my man leave because my man kept pulling me away from this guy who kept touchin me inappropriately. So the "gaurd" asked my man to leave the area, everything was cool from that point and i guess we weren't leaving quick enough and the secruity gaurd tries to wrestle my boyfriend and push him out the club, but my man was stronger than the 200plus lbs gaurd and he ended up throwing him to the ground. Pride got in the way so 3 other bouncers came and tossed him out of the club, still angry that none of them were able to throw him on the ground thats when they became physcial and hit him once in the face i know for a fact, and once in the neck. not one time did my man hit them, he just stood his ground by restraining them from trying to hit him. they ripped his shirt and bruised his neck. police came and guess what? they did nothing. told us we had to walk to their station if we did want to do a report, but there was nothing they could do because of it being a new year and too busy. Overall the club was ok, wouldn't go back, if my man could handle 3 big burly secruity gaurds they weigh more than 200lbs each, i don't feel safe, (at least with the gaurds..lol)

Pros: Good Music

Cons: Secruity isn't securing a damn thing!!!!

Look- i was a first timer just recently. Me n my friends all decided to try out a new "hot spot". Little did we knw, the place was gunna be wack. First of all, it is WAY too crowded in there. You cant stand anywhere to dance for more than 5 minutes before you're pushed by a gang of people. The club go-ers seem to do nothin but look for fights. There were at least 5 fights within 30 minutes of us being there. Thats ridiculous. The security was nuts, slammin into people left and right. Dnt they knw they are twice as big as most people that go there? Finally; the police that surround the nightclub.. dont even do their job. My girls car got broken into and everybodys purse got stolen. And what did the cops do? Not a damn thing. They wouldnt even write a police report... which is pretty well illegal. Needless to say, this club overall was wack. Who wants to go to a club thats so crowded you cant even breathe? Ill stick with my not so crowded, more secure clubs.

Secrets in Dolton used to be a really nice place to go and party but now it is definetly overrated. Maybe I'm just getting older, the average age of the patrons i would say is about 24. Overrall the music is ok if you like gangsta rap and r n b all night long, if your into a little more upscale, this might not be the spot for you, dont get me wrong the club is exceptional, for a suburban club, it should be downtown, but the crowd is a little too immature and i've noticed some of the people there try to front or "stunt" a little too much. VIP area is nothing special anymore, anyone who buys a $50 bottle can get up there with a couple of friends. Even if you pay for drinks you can't chill at the bar, security i believe is trying to make a name for themselves for being the toughest crew around that dont take no mess or just the biggest adrenaline and testosterone pumped up jerks you ever wanna see. About 4 years ago it was the place to be, but now i'll leave it for the kids. If you're 21 -26 yrs old and like being around chics who think they are the best thing since sliced bread and guys who wanna be "ballers" I'd recommend it, but if you're grown and dont do hood spots I'd say not. Thursdays and Saturdays are the "hot" nights. Friday is more laidback, not so crowded.
Admission price was cool, drinks arent too expensive, club was nicely remodeled, friendly waitresses and bartenders, plenty of parking, good sound system, dj's were cool but security was too aggressive, crowd too young, place was too crowded

I've been going to Secrets off and on for about 8 years. I agree the clientele has fallen off. The club industry is so hard that alot of times the club has to lower it's entry standards to stay afloat. We saw the same thing happen to The Clique (E2)a few years back. The only hangup I have with Secrets that you can't stand at the bar and drink (which was brought up by another reviewer). But, any "large" club that you go to in the Chicago area has similiar rules. Overall though, Secrets is still one of the better clubs to go to in the South Suburbs.

Pros
1. Parking-free, relatively safe parking across the street
2. Cover-$10 for guys, $5 for ladies b4 11pm
3. Space-Nice size dance floor, 2 bars (although standing at the bar is issue.)
4. Easy access (a few blocks away from for 145th street exit of the Bishop Ford E-Way)

Cons
1. Entry standards lowered (see guys with gym shoes and shorts)
2. VIP access is like trying to break into the World Bank
3. On Friday and Saturday nights you will be hard press to find a place to stand, because it is so crowded.
4. Drink prices have increased (average around $6.50-$7)

well i go to secrets on thursdays and saturday and both days be crackin..i prefer thursday cause it's good deals on the drinks that day. the bouncers do be a little 'oc' but i think it be caused for because it be so packed the place need order, the bartenders cool they gone tell you the specials so you don't spend all yo money in the club..but they do need more seats in the place you kind of forced to go to vip to get a good seat..which ain't much money..but over all it's a pretty decent club.

Pros: deals on drinks, admission

Cons: limited seats

Secrets is a very nice club. The best thing about it is the DJ. They play a mixture of music so that everyone is satisfied. The drinks are very good. The best Blue MotherFuckers in the world!!! The bouncers are a little aggressive but I guess it's for good cause. They try to keep people from blocking the walkways which is OK I guess. The only real problem I have with this place is the seating. Typically, women get there early on Thursdays because it's free before 10. Even with only a few women there before 10, there is little to no seating. I would most definitely recommend this place. They have very good VIP. They offer flowers and teddy bears to the women and have a photographer. I really like this place. Nice crowd. Pretty well mannered. Lots of parking across the street for free. I love it. Great scene for singles.

I am a club Goer. I am 28 , been partying since i was 17 at THE CLIQUE (now known as E2, epitome) i also work in the nightclub industry. Secrets was a good place when i was younger. you had to dress up, no jeans, gym shoes you got frisked at the door but it elimnated shootings and such. recently it has gotten EXTREMELY Ignorant. The crowd from MR. RICKYS has gotten into secrets which is not good. the men pull on you, talk to you any kind of way. As far as the music. Its good. They mix it up from r and b, steppin, a lil bit of rap.

My ill Rwview is of the Bouncers, how they treat you and How the club rules are rather idiotic. I went to secrets last night (april 21, 2007) and i try not to gout south on Saturday because the mental status is very poor of some of these people. but i went, , hadnt been in over a year to secrets.

I walk in, get frisked, pay the 10 entry fee, proceed to the b ar ( noone was on the dance floor even though it was 11:15) I bought a Long Island, drank it, ordered an Apple martini, drank it and the bouncer came and said YOU GOTTA GO YOU CANT DRINK AT THE BAR......? What in the world!!!!!!!!!! He asked a paying customer to leave the club or leave the bar. I was shocked. So I asked to speak to the manager. Of course they were nowhere to be found. So I left and vowed Never to return.

Secrets is Overrated, For the ill dressed, and senseless.

I used to go long ago every Thursday night. The ladies get in free and drinks were a dollar. I went again last year for my frined's birthday on Saturday and we juked it out all night long. I am into the process of seeing if I can reserve the VIP section for my birthday. I always have a good time.

I go on Sundays for the house music and I alway have a good time
because the crowd and the atmosphere on Sundays is laid back. I prefer a club scene like that
and it is always free before 11:00pm

I've visited the club on Thursdays and Saturdays. A nice music selection if you're into R & B and Hip Hop. The music never stops along with the dancing and good times that follow. Thursdays is ladies night and for the ladies that means free admission and to the guys you know where the ladies are at and the place stays packed full of honies. Overall I must say I've enjoyed all my visits to the club and would recomend it to any one looking to enjoy a nice evening out dancing and have a good time.

I have been to secrets on thursday. I did not like it because I do not like R and B music. Sunday nightsis great. It is a slightly older crowd. I have to do nothing but dance and enjoy the house music.

As if the 50 yard line in Harvey wasn't bad enough, we now have this place! Anywhere you have to be frisked to get in, I don't want any part of. They should be more concerned about IDing some of these "women", some of them couldn't have been anymore than 17!

YUK!
