Sooo I went to Embers last night for the first time & my experience there wasn't great at all.
We went there for one of my best friend's birthdays and so I HAD to go. When we get there, the whole area just looked dark & ghetto. The location sucks and so does the parking. You have to drive around in the dark neighborhoods to find a parking spot on the street. When I finally found a place to park, it was infront of a house and a wall that had graffiti (which i'm sorry, but i'm not parking my lexus infront of a wall with graffiti and leaving my purse in the trunk). So after 15 minutes of driving around, we end up going to vallet which was only $6.
When we get in, the place looked nice. Music was okay (if you're into reggaeton). My friend told me that dowstairs was hip hop and upstairs was reggaeton. So we went upstairs and 10 minutes later, we had to clear the floor because some stupid belly dancing group was performing (WHO DOES THAT?!)
So we go downstairs to dance some more and we go to the bar on the left closest to the dance floor. So we got 2 beers and tipped the bartender a dollar. Then went dancing, came back for another beer. She took about 10 minutes, and all we had was a $5 (which a bottle of budlight is $5). And so because she took so long and we didn't have change, we didn't tip her a dollar. Then we go dancing and then come back. When we come back the third time, we wanted to buy another beer and a drink for my best friend. We were standing in the corner of the bar and the bartender was working in the middle of the bar and working her way down towards us. Once it's our turn to order, she goes back to the middle of the bar and works her way down again. So she pretty much skipped us. Then when she reaches us, she acknowledges my best friend and gives her a drink for free. Then goes back to the middle of the bar and works her way down. So not only did she skip us one. This b*tch skipped us twice. We've been standing in the same spot for like 30 minutes now waiting for a beer until she finally reaches us. Then my best friend waves her hand and told her "hey! you forgot about my friend! he wants a budlight" and the bartendar turns to my boyfriend and says "Oh I'm sorry! I forgot about you! Like you forgot about my tip!" and my boyfriend says "Are you f*cking kidding me?!" and then grabs something on the bar and tosses it in the air towards her.
After that, we stopped drinking. She pretty much ruined our night. We were there at 10:20 and left and 11:40. So I don't know what her name is, but she works at the bar closest to the main dance floor downstairs. She's short, skinny, hispanic and has black curly hair. She's a b*tch, the music sucks, the parking sucks.. So my advice to you is, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY AND TIME ON A LAME ASS PLACE LIKE THAT!
