Stay away! – I was at The Slip Inn 3/6/2011 and the DJ playing that night was under the impression that he was in a techno bar in Las Vegas and not Dallas, TX. I paid him 7 dollars asking for him to play any Jay-Z song (very popular artist, especially in dance clubs). The guy takes my money and completely ignores my request and continues with his obscure Deadmau5 want-to-be music that nobody was dancing to or even remotely interested in. I approached the DJ booth get my money back and his coked up bouncer/ girlfriend blatantly insults me and my girlfriend. He then states that I should “f**k off because it is his birthday and he’ll play what he wants”.
I will never return to this place again solely for their DJ selection.
THE TRASHIEST BAR EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – THIS PLACE IS THE TRASHIEST BAR I HAVE EVER BEEN TO IN MY LIFE. IN MY LIFE! IT'S SMALL AND CONGESTED AND OVERCAPACITY, BUT STILL CRAMMED PEOPLE IN. THE BARTENDERS.. CAN I SAY THEY WERE ON CRACK LITERALLY! I DIDN'T EVEN GET A GOOD BUZZ DUE TO THE FACT IT TOOK ME 45 MINS TO GET A DRINK AND BY THEN I HAD TO GET MY HUSBAND TO REINFORCE AND A ,LITERALLY, CRACKED OUT BARTENDER THAT THOUGHT HE OWNED THE BAR TOOK OUR MONEY, DEEP THROATED OUR MONEY AND THOUGHT IT WAS HILARIOUS! REALLY? THAT MONEY HAS BEEN EVERY WHERE, WON'T BE SURPRISED IF HE HAS GONORRHEA NOW.. WE GOT THERE AT MIDNIGHT AND ONLY TWO DRINKS WERE SERVED TO MY HUSBAND AND I, WE CAME WITH FOUR OTHER PEOPLE MIGHT I ADD.
OKAY AND THAT ISN'T THE WORST PART. YOU CANNOT WEAR BASEBALL HATS IN THE BAR,THAT IS THEIR POLICY. COOL. MY HUSBAND AND HIS 2 FRIENDS HAD HATS, BUT THEY TOLD THEM, “HEY YOU CAN BRING YOUR HAT, BUT DON'T WEAR IT.” WE WALKED IN AND TEN OTHER GUYS ARE WEARING THEIR HAT. SO AROUND 1:50 AM, BEFORE THE BAR ENDED, MY HUSBAND PUTS HIS HAT ON BECAUSE WE WERE ABOUT TO LEAVE, THE CRACKED OUT BARTENDER HITS MY HUSBAND'S HEAD AND HIS CAP FLIPS OFF HIS HEAD, AGAIN HE THINKS HE OWNS THE BAR, AND TELLS HIM,"NO HATS IN THIS BAR!!!! GET HIM OUT OF HERE!" OKAY, ONE, ALL HE HAD TO SAY WAS SIR TAKE OFF YOUR HAT, NO HATS ALLOWED OR GET OUT. TWO, DON'T BE RUDE AND HIT MY HUSBAND'S HEAD BECAUSE YOU ARE DRUNK AND DRINKING ON THE JOB. OH YEAH, WE HAVE PICTURES OF HIM DRINKING STRAIGHT FROM A JAGERMIESTER BOTTLE AND SPITTING IT ALL OUT LIKE HE WAS VOMITING. OF COURSE, ANY NORMAL HUMAN WILL GET MAD AND MY HUSBAND TELLS THE BARTENDER WHAT ARE YOU DOING HITTING MY HEAD BECAUSE OF A HAT, NOT IN THOSE WORDS, BUT I'D RATHER KEEP IT PG! :) SO THE BARTENDER STARTS SCREAMING LIKE A LITTLE GIRL, BY THE WAY HE IS A MAN, TO THE BOUNCER TO KICK THIS"MOTHER F***** OUT!!!!" AGAIN WE HAVE A PICTURE OF THAT TOO!!! IN MY HUSBAND'S DEFENSE HE WAS TELLING THE BOUNCER HEY THIS GUY RIGHT HERE IS WEARING A BASEBALL HAT TOO, WHY CAN'T I? THE BOUNCER AND MY HUSBAND HAD SOME WORDS AND THE BOUNCER FLIPPED OUT ON MY HUSBAND. MY HUSBAND LOOKS WHITE, BUT HE IS HALF WHITE/MEXICAN, HIS BEST FRIEND IS BLACK, AND I AM ASIAN. OKAY, THE BOUNCER BASICALLY CALLED MY HUSBAND RACIST BECAUSE HE USED A SLANG WORD TOWARDS A GUY. WHICH HE DIDN'T MEAN IT IN A RACIST WAY. SO MY HUSBAND WAS ABOUT TO WALK AWAY AND THEN THE BOUNCER GRABS HIM AND TRIES TO FORCEFULLY DRAG MY HUSBAND OUT OF THE BAR, REMIND YOU THAT THE BOUNCER WAS ABOUT 6'7 AND MY HUSBAND IS 5'6 AND DID NOT ATTACK NOR DISRESPECT ANYONE TO DESERVE THAT. AFTER TWO MEN DRAGGED MY HUSBAND OUT FOR NO REASON! THE BOUNCER THAT WAS INITIALLY SPEAKING TO MY HUSBAND DRAGGED HIM OUT TO THE PARKING LOT TO BEAT HIM UP. HE TRIED TO CRUSH MY HUSBAND'S HEAD IN TO THE CEMENT AND ALMOST PUNCHED HIM UNTIL ALL THE WORKERS THERE NEW A LAWSUIT WAS GOING TO BE SET. THE BOUNCER ASSAULTED, TAUNTED AFTER THE FACT, AND EVEN SMIRKED AT US. I KNOW PEOPLE HAVE A BAD PERSONAL LIFE, BUT IF YOU ARE THAT MESSED UP IN THE HEAD TO DO ALL THAT, YOU SHOULDN'T BE WORKING AS A BOUNCER. THIS BOUNCER TOOK IT FROM PROFESSIONAL FOR ABOUT A MINUTE TO PERSONAL WITH MY HUSBAND. OH DID I MENTION I WAS NOT DRUNK, INTOXICATED, NOR DID I MISS ANYTHING THAT HAPPENED IN THIS SITUATION. I AM ANGRY AND VERY DISGUSTED. AFTER I HAD CALLED THE POLICE AND FILED A POLICE REPORT THE OWNER OR WHOEVER HE WAS DECIDES TO SAY WE APOLOGIZE AND WE KNOW THAT IT WAS IN THE WRONG!! I WAS LIKE, EXCUSE MY LANGUAGE, BUT SUCK MY D***! THIS IS HOW YOU RUN YOUR BUSINESS? THIS IS HOW YOU GET YOURSELF OUT OF BUSINESS! IT IS THE MOST TRASHIEST PLACE I HAVE EVER BEEN TO. LUCKILY, THE PHOTOS THAT WERE TAKEN WAS FROM OUR FRIEND THAT IS A PHOTOGRAPHER AND HE CAUGHT IT ALL. IT HAPPENED SO FAST THAT OUT FRIENDS DIDN’T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON SO HE WAS JUST SHOOTING PHOTOS. IF THERE WAS ANYTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT THIS OUTCOME, IT WOULD BE THEM GOING OUT OF BUSINESS AND THAT BOUNCER GOING TO JAIL.
Racist – Very racist and act as if it's a very nice bar when it's not. The bouncers decide who comes in based on your race. They do not like Blacks or Hispanics. Dress code is ridiculous considering this bar isn't even nice. It'd be a different story if it were an actual NICE place. But it's not. Very pathetic bar.
Horrible Service and Staff – We tried to go to this place tonight, but our group was turned away.... Only because we tried to park in a parking spot that was apparently one of many reserved for the owner. Because we were meeting a friend to continue her birthday party, We were good sports and eventually found a parking spot three blocks away and attempted to enter the Slip. The bouncer and six of his buddies came outside to threaten our poor group, made fun of us, and told us to leave. I've got a bad taste for the Slip Inn and would encourage anyone thinking of going here to reconsider.
Not that great a place buddy: – Use to be a good plae a few years back but the locals have not abandoned the bar and now it's wannabbee's and fake freaks. It's done!
Not recommended – The picture looks nice right? You have heard your friends talk about raging nights they have had there. You may have also heard some horror stories. I will tell you the truth from personal experience. First of all,...that nice big, pretty booth you see back there, i guarantee you more people than you want to think of have probably gotten it on in that corner. Other than that... Yeah it is ok if you are cool with the bar staff, you never have to wait for a drink. If you are not then be prepared for AT LEAST 10 minutes of waiting, maybe even the chance to be ignored or turned away, and then being bumped into by the crowd moving through because the place is quite small. If you have already broken the seal for the night, don't expect to go there without doing the potty dance because there are only two bathrooms and they are both unisex. There is a sign that says only one person at a time, but we all know how that goes. I have met the owner of this place who also owns another bar nearby and I think he is a great guy. I feel sorry that his staff is the downfall of this particular business. If you have read any of the reviews about them before, you should know that they are all pretty much accurate. To be excluded, Wes and Wendy are awesome, but the rest have a bad attitude and have a sorry excuse for a sense of entitlement. If it was not for the staff, I would recommend this bar, however, if you go...proceed at your own risk and BY ALL MEANS don't linger....
Good Hip Hop , Bad Staff – Great Hip Hop & Cheap Drinks but it all stops there. Manager/Owner is a real tool. I saw him get into a fist fight one night with a customer as his knuckle head bouncers threw the guy out who as far as I saw did nothing. I have seen too many bad actions from the staff here to believe this was the first time for this looser.
A good Friday night plan is to have dinner at one of the great places on Henderson and then go to the Slip Inn around 9 or 10 to chill and listen to Hip Hop but after 11pm beware of the shady crowd and strung out staff.
Meet ya at tha Slip! – I LOVE this place! The music is always right on point, everyone is there is have a good time. The variety and diversity of people is awesome. You will always meet new people and see old friends here. The bartenders are fun and personable. The security here is good too. The bouncers always have their eyes open and make sure that everyone is there to have fun, not drama. I saw that previous post and that is NOT TRUE! The bouncers are cool as hell and the only time you will have a problem with them is if you start fighting or are putting your hands on someone who doesnt want you putting your hands on them. They are very professional and there for everyone's safety. This place has it goin on! I will come here every weekend!!!
Bouncers Committed Assault – My husband and I were there for about 5 minutes. In that time, my husband ordered a beer. The bartender yelled at him, "you have to pay for that." and my husband pointed to the $5 he had placed on the bar. The bartender grabbed it and then two bouncers grabbed my husband, carried him outside, threw him on the ground, where one guy held his face in the concrete, one sat on his back, and the other kicked him in the ribs. I tried to get near him and was pushed away several times. I asked one bouncer, "what did he do?" and then I said, "maybe you got the wrong guy," and he replied back, "maybe." At that point, I called 911. When the cop got there she didn't even listen to me, and instead gave my husband a PI ticket. She did let us leave. We will be filing charges against this dump which doesn't train their staff. I don't care if someone is drunk or loud or even crazy, they don't deserve to be beat up. And in our case, my husband wasn't even any of the above.
I LOVE THIS PLACE!! – I was reading some of the bad reviews and had to comment. This place is one my favoraites. I don't get how 1) Drinks are too strong. 2) People dancing enjoying the music is a bad thing??? 3) Bartenders are too friendly?? Thats what I love about the place. Its in a good area and I can be comfortable and not pretencious like A LOT of spots in this city. I agree it is too small and the line to the bathroom is a hasstle but other than that. The music is great! Everytime I have gone they play a lot of old school hip hop. Not Soulja Boy lol! The real stuff! And I love seeing people enjoying themselves. If your not trying to dance and have a good time then no you wont like it at all. And the bartenders I love the most! Maybe its because I am a female but I have had the best service with them. Especially the one with the spiky hair! He is a trip!! He spits fire and hooks it up on the drinks which by the way are not expensive at all. Thats why I don't get how a drink is too strong because Im tired of going to the TRENDY places where people want to act big time and the bartenders wanna rip you off serving weak drinks then charge you out the butt, then want you to tip them! This place isnt like that. It is different but everybody is there to have a good time. No fake people, no fake big timers, just good music and good fun!! But then again, if you would rather have a fashion show, stand around looking at people and drink wine, and not open to DIVERSITY (whatever the other guys were going with that comment) or if your scared of the "HOODLUMS" That doesn't even exsist in UPTOWN, I promise, you will enjoy yourself.
