Summary

Aura doesn't get hopping until at least 10pm, so if you try to go earlier you'll be disappointed. The crowd tends to be younger (20's), but the music is a selection of dance music ranging from some of the more popular late 80's/early 90's stuff to present day tunes. Overall, we had a lot of fun and will be going back! Summary Review: B+

Food

Large drink menu, ranging from standard mix drinks, to martinis, wine, and specialty "aura" drinks that try to match the drink to your personal aura color. All quite tasty. Food Review: A-

Atmosphere

At the bar, the bartenders were performing the standard Tom Cruise "Cocktail" moves, which was nonetheless entertaining. It's a small place, which can feel quite cozy at times, like on the dance floor during a popular song, but we were still able to find a table to sit and rest. The seating was comfortable, with a selection of "front row" tables to view the dance floor, as well as a more secluded area in the back. Atmosphere Review: B+

Service

There were surprisingly a few cocktail waitresses there, but one of the 2 times they waited on us rather than us going to the bar, the order was wrong. However, she came around another time with apparently extra drinks from patrons who left or were no where to be found, so she gave us their drinks for free. Service Review: B+

Value

Just what you'd expect from a lounge. There was no cover charge to get in, and they do offer events like "ladies drink free" on certain days and times, so be sure to call ahead and find out. Value Review: B
