I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Velvet Dog. The staff was very friendly, and the colorful atmosphere and sound really brings the place to life.

Pittsburgh & New York who wanted to
check out "the dog".!

The Velvet Dog is constantly reinventing itself. If you haven't been lately, stop through!! They must have recently upgraded their sound, lights, and DJ's because it was an amazing experience. By far the best place to dance in Cleveland, and the Roof-Top has private Cabanas you can reserve and the best view of the City anywhere. The staff is beautiful and friendly. Great Friday Happy Hour as well!! Keep it up!

Pros: Roof-Top Patio, VIP Cabanas, Best DJ's in town!

Id have to say that me and my friends had a great time last weekend at the Dog. The DJ was great and they played everything from r&b, pop, and remixes that I never heard before. If you want a change a pace, rooftop patio is all I got to say. Ive been to every club on West 6th, and I always start or end my night at the Velvet Dog, most of the time I do both.

Pros: Atmosphere, large areas, rooftop!

.

On the bright side, this club has a nice location, in the summer time they have a rooftop patio which is great, and on the ground and first floor they have plenty of space, definitely more than other clubs on west 6th where everybody is stepping on everybody, like Barfly, Barley house or Blind pig downstairs.
On the flip side though, virtually all the other clubs have better music than VD. The guy who pretends to be mixing music at VD has no idea what he's doing, as he switches back and forth from top 40 music to 80's music and doesn't manage to create any kind of party mood in that club. One minute you listen to Jay-Z's latest hit, and the next thing you know Cindy Lauper is on, or some old Madonna track. That kills the mood for me (and for others, judging by the number of people inside) , and in my opinion if there's one thing VD management should do is hire a real DJ, who knows what kind of music people dance to these days.

If you go to VD, you are probably in the under 25 club and have no hobbies outside of beer and sports.\r
\r
Women, you are most likely to find guys with their hats cocked 45 degrees coming up behind you rubbing their crotch in your behind and flipping out lines like ""Hey girl, you are looking so fine I wanna make you mine""\r
---Welcome to the Mecca of Midwest guidodom. \r
\r
Guys, if you are looking for easily impressed women, well look no further. You could be a highly edumicated person here. <---and yes that was the intended spelling.\r
\r
Unimaginative top 40 music combined with the most unimaginative crowd in Cleveland that knows fashion from solely from an A&F catalog. Khakis, really? REALLY? I thought people only danced in circles in high school and in movies. I was wrong.\r
\r
The upside of this place is it's rooftop deck, which is by the best in the city during the summer. Unfortunately you have most of the same crowd here. \r
\r
If you like to run in the middle of the pack and don't like to step out front, then this is the place for you after every Cavs game you go.

Pros: Crowd watching lends social lessons on ""How not to act in public""

Cons: Having the habits of the crowd wear off on you. Did I just let my pants sag down to let my underwear show?

Nice dancing feel to it, great music and the dance floor is nice to boogie on. The bar is stylist and reasonable price. It's great to go and Jam regardless time of season.

I was at the VD on a Friday during happy hour. The place was EMPTY and the rooftop server for the VIP section was a complete jerk (as$%le). I was sitting with my girlfriend in the VIP section before it was fully sectioned off. He was completely rude and swore at me cause I did not leave fast enough. I was hanging out and trying to finish my drink. He should be fired for being so rude to customers. Will never go there again or recommend this lame bar!

This is one of those places where you say I will never go in there. But once you go, it is a blast. It was so loud and fun. My friends and I had a ball in this place. I don't care what they say about it, it was fun. The atmosphere was nice, but it is a hot spot to pick up men. But you should try it.

If you want to be around a bunch of people who just want to get Drunk and get rowdy, then go here...
If you want to go deaf early, also go here...
Kind of like a huge Meat-market...

Cons: not enough bathrooms

The few times I've been to the VD have always been fun, very fun. It's not Studio 54, but not bad for Cleveland, OH. I've had friends from out-of-town there and they've been very impressed, too. Great place to people watch - never a dull moment! The 3rd floor lounge and the roof-top tiki bar are my favorites. The staff is always friendly, especially Karen who works the 3rd floor on weekends. She is terrific!!!
