      Can’t recommend: lackadaisical service and limited ambiance.

      IThis bar is a dive. The drinks are good but management has a tendency to be a little rude about 50% of the time. The bartenders are phenomenal. Would be a lot better if the owner wouldstep things up a bit But I guess you get what you pay for

      Great Bar for meeting
      Very Friendly, Beer Bust every Sunday at 5pm sponsored by Club Essence to benefit Pride San Antonio. Roger is a great bartender, and so are the rest of the crew. Good drinks, Always a smile and friendly customers too. Hot dancers several nights a week too!!

      A nice place with cheap drinks.
      We visit San Antonio often, and we always end up at this bar. The bar has an interesting mix of people and the dancers are always in interesting mix, but the big draw is always the cheap drinks. You can't beat their drink prices.

      This Club is full of some of HOTTEST DANCERS. The drinks are resonable and the Bartender [T-Girl] is so sweet!. I enjoy the different styles of music that the DJ plays. The dancers are so FREAKING HOTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      It's a real dumpy place to go, the DJ's taste usually sucks and most of the 'dancers' are straight and try way to hard! I don't understand the 6" stages that they have setup and the 1 or 2 dartboards... I never know what the theme is and when I went in to see some eye-candy, there were no 'dancers' and a tranny bartender...

      WOW, lots of Go-Go boys!
      I use to go when I was a lil younger, before the "make over". I recently went on a Thrusday in January 2011. Man ooooh man. Go-Go boys everywhere. The music was really good. They played old music mixed in with new. I really did'nt expect that kind of music. They just dont play top 40 (only). They play it all. old/new rap, booty. pop etc. Drinks are reasonable and are strong as well. I recall 2 pool tables and a lil patio where someone is cooking:) FOOOOD! They dont have a dance floor:( but is kinda spacious to dance with a partner. I have gone on a Friday and Sunday, did'nt like. Maybe i should try a Saturday???

      Friendly to Visitors to SA
      I really like to go to essence when in SA. The dancers are a real plus, and friendly as well. They do have their regular friends, but get around the room to entertain the newbys too. It is a good atmosphere for friends who want the dancers, and to be able to share conversation as well.

      I've Seen Better
      One big open room of a bar, pretty bright inside, music was awful, dancers were out working the crowd and they were okay...2 of them were super cute, the rest were not really stripper quality. Stayed for a bit, but left after a beer or two....
