*****THESE PEOPLE ARE CROOKS*** DO NOT USE CREDIT CARD – The first time it happened I thought is was an honest mistake, they swiped my card 4 times, then two days later I went there again, not at my choosing, and it happened again, this time they swiped it twice, Please if you do decide to go, which i would really discourage, do not use your credit card, they WILL overcharge you, and not by mistake. It makes me wonder how many people dont notice the overcharges. Management will not help you, i tried speaking to manager and nothing. He didn't even try to help me, he said to call my bank. They could have just voided the transaction. Now i have to wait about a week to get my money back.
And another one – After a decent brunch on a Sunday, we decided to give this place a try. We got to the door and the bouncer says he isn't letting more men inside. Usually I roll with a girl to guy ratio where this is not a problem but that day it was only me and one of my friends. Maybe that part we could see coming. My friend is not as patient as I am and he wanted to leave but I wanted to make sure that the bouncer was true to his word. I waited at the door and made sure that he did not let a single guy in the club before my friend and I were inside. Needless to say that sped up our entry because some of his "regulars" were starting to get annoyed. Once inside though, I was not impressed. The crowd was ok at best and the music was an awkward melange of house, techno, hip hop, salsa/merengue, and r&b in no discernible order. It really had no rhyme or reason. I am all for different types of music as long as the transition between songs and genres is smooth (not cacophonic). You won't get great music here but some of it will make you dance. Those of you, like me, who want some good hip hop and music in general, will be disappointed. Once again, not the friendliest places to young African American men but eventually they will let you in (hence the 2 stars) . . . Stay strong
diverse crowd, solid music – Great for a party or a low-key drinking night or date, although it gets crowded and seating is 90% bottle-service. Outdoor access is a plus if you want fresh air, a break from the music, or a smoke. Bartenders are fast and hot. Easy place to stay until close. Everyone there is well-mannered and properly dressed. Cliques have a tendency to frequent there. Overall, it's worth checking out, and a decent fall-back location.
best friday night party in town! – I do dj here, so I am biased.....but most my friends and people that show up to Deco on Fridays, usually end up there cause everything else around Houston has gotten stale.....
We have great bartenders, hot gogo dancers, and some of the best djs around....if you are looking for a fun mix of people on a friday night...stop by!
great place to go to relax – I loved the atmosphere here it's a very nice lounge, drinks are a bit on the pricey side, but hey it's midtown people get used to it. I found it to be a great place to relax the staff was friendly and i didn't have to wait hours for a drink.
I AGREE DO NOT USE YOUR CREDIT CARD – I completely agree DO NOT USE YOUR CREDIT CARD AT DECO. I dont go to DECO very often- but the few times I have gone there has ALWAYS been a problem with over charging. At first I wrote it off as just being a simple mistake. However, the bar isn't crowded enough to where the bar tender is just so busy that they make mistakes. And it has happend more than once! If you want to avoid a headache- don't use your credit card, or just go to another bar/lounge! Beleive me- you won't be missing a whole lot by going somewhere else- I decided it's just not worth the headache!!
DON'T USE PLASTIC!!! – 022108 I visted Deco w a group of friends, 3 different tabs among us. After a couple of drink requests it was obvious our server was out of her element; taking long amounts of time to return each order & there were less than 15 people. I requested to close my tab early. She returned with 2 checks; not 1 & informed me she didn't know how to process gift cards; gave her my debit card. We found out she was new to bartending. Not at all annoyed by that. We?ve all been new at one time or another & wanting for others to be patient & understanding. The server later came back to tell us she made a mistake. She claimed she placed my order on my on my friends? tab. On my drive home I remembered my receipt showing ?Up to $25 placed on hold? & I know my card # was on the receipt. What did she swipe my card for if she added my drink order to my friend?s tab? When I checked my account there were FOUR$25 items from Deco. Similar issues occurred with my friend's accts as well. 02/25/08 my coworker complained a bar overcharged her. It was DECO! Why didn't she tell me or apologize? There?s NO reason why 4 $25 items should be on my acct. I realize as a business Deco reserves the right to hold $25 for a $7 tab. I can understand making a mistake once, causing 1 $25 authorization, then processing the purchase correctly adding a 2nd $25. I don't understand making the mistake THREE times! This is my checking acct. A total of $100 has been on hold since Thurs & will remain on hold, unavailable to me to spend until Thurs of this week. What if I needed that money? What if I didn?t have the funds available? I could have balanced my acct responsibly & spent accordingly. My bank would charge me an insufficient fee for EACH item, regardless of whether or not those items were authorizations or purchases. Ultimately I would end up paying for a merchant?s mistake. I can?t believe that waitress would allow me to discover this mistake, instead of informing us. BEWARE of DECO and TAKE CASH!
Good place to end the night – Went here Saturday night with a group of girls and had a lot of fun. The place was moderately packed by the time we arrived (12:30-1:00). No problem getting in, the crowd was fairly diverse, mostly asians and indians. People were nice and I ran into alot of people I knew. Not much dancing going on, more of a lounge area.
Always a pleasure, never a dull moment – This place is great - great music, lighting, decor, specialty drinks, etc. Lounge/Bar, but still enough place to dance. Usually there for HH on Thursdays and they have great prices on drinks and appetizers. We use to go to Cyclones down the street, but too expensive & I think they use everclear in their ritas, which always packed a *!@#$% the next morning. Fun, fun, fun...see you there.
good happy hour – We've been going for Thursday happy hours for the last two months or so.. I like the place.. the decoration is trendy and I like the music. but the best of all is that on Thursday they have drinks (all types of martinis) $3 all night! Check it out, it's worth it!!
