VIBE This back-alley mini-club has gone through a few name and owner changes recently, after beginning life as Temple, then Betty Ford Temple. The split-level floor plan and overall layout remain the same, but a few minor improvements have been made and there's a less random approach to the decor. Music on weekends tends toward deep house, while the vibe during the week is more on the lounge side. Upscale, slightly older crowd, not much dancing.
VALUE No cover normally, but you may want to phone ahead for guest list anyway, as the club can fill up quickly on weekends. A domestic beer will run you $5.50, a standard mixed drink $5.95.
Not uncommon on weekends, and once it fills up you won't get in unless you're on the list.
BATHROOMS Small but clean and nice-looking.
