Since I've been in ATL, I've heard a zillion commercials for this place on the radio.  I went with my cousin, Monica, housemate Malika on Thanksgiving night.Ms. Bomchell met us there. The Orlando Magic
was hosting & was in the building was hosting.



My review may be biased because I arrived there with a few drinks in me :)

Parking kinda sucks they have their own lot which was $20.... The lots around the area were $10..... Not bad for mid-town if you split the parking cost with your group.
I printed passes (I hate the standard ATL $20 club cover) to get in free before 11:30 for me and a bunch of my friends.  We got there kinda late and the line was around the door.. The line guy said not to worry, he'd make sure we'd get in with the passes even if it was a little after 11:30pm.. I'm convinced that some of these clubs hold their line to force you to pay $20... The line guy said that if we each paid $20 (we were a group of 6) that we could cut the line and go right in.  I was against it because it took me like and hour to find the right place to print the passes and I'm not made of money and rather spend $20 on drinks inside.
It was kinda disappointing that the coat check was $4!!  It was too cold out to not wear some type of jacket. I'm from NY and have gone to lots of clubs in NYC and coat check is usually $1 or $2. So that was $4 out of my drink budget :(
Most drinks there cost between $7-$12 depending on what you order.  I only needed one refresher drink since I "pre-gamed" before we left. 
Inside is nice.  When you walk in there's a backdrop with the clubs logo and the photographer takes "red carpet style" pics. I believe the club has 4 levels.  The top levels over look the main floor and are VIP.
Main Dance Floor 

 Another view showing levels 1 & 2



Overall it was a good time, good mix of music, nice crowd.  No "thugs in the club". Did run into a few scrubs! lol
It was a good time, but I also went with GOOD company!

You can print passes for Opera here Day IV Entertainment.  The pass is only good on THURSDAY NIGHTS! Each night is hosted by a different entertainment company.  Try to listen to the radio to see who's hosting the night then get passes or RSVP accordingly.
