Dallas >Kinki Lounge
My girls and I came for my 31st birthday and had a great time. It's a little hard to find a 21+ only club/lounge that has the vibe we were looking for this particular night.
We choose VIP and made reservations earlier in the week and were not disappointed.
Our server was amazing and the manager checked on us several times throughout the evening. The DJ spun well, but wasn't keen on requests.
The music was hot all night and the age range was nice despite the teen-admission allowance.
The bouncers were at the curtain most of the evening to the curtained VIP area and even helped with our transportation at the end of the night.
I think Kinki IS trying to make a move towards a higher caliber of clientele, so keep in mind that if you act with class you are more likely to be treated with class.
Final thought: So many people post "There are SO many other clubs that are way better......" or "There are WAY classier..." Where pray tell? I understand a plug for another club may not be taken well on a review for one, but try it in a separate post, if that gets erased, here's a crazy idea.... post a POSITIVE review of a POSITIVE experience for those "better clubs" and "classier clubs," etc. Those reviews seem to be mighty scarce for some reason.
WORST BAR ON GREENVILLE. I agree with all the bad reviews also. I went to this bar with a bunch of freinds of mine, hoping to have a good time. The music was a little on the loud side. Anyways, we there for probaply about an hour, me and my freinds were standing in front of a reserved area of the bar, when all of a sudden some guys tries to start a fight with me. I am the one that got taken out of the bar. I guess he must have been one of there power drinking regulars, because the bouncers did nothing to him. When you ask the bouncer a question, none of the could give you an answer. They all play like a bunch of "Road House" power tripping bouncers, that are to stupid to answer any questions. DON'T WASTE A WEEKEND NIGHT GOING TO THIS BAR. TO MANY OTHER BARS TO GO TO HAVE A GOOD TIME!!!!
unorganized night club called Kinki = herpes.
The most ridiculous place in Dallas. I am 28 years old and have been partying for many years but never seen anything as boring and unorganized as Kinki. My girlfriend was turning 23 and she wanted to throw a nice party. I talked to Kinki's general manager Kim AND manager Pedram a month in advance to book the stage (my girlfriend's favorite space in clubs) for October 16th with three bottles for our guests. I called them two times to confirm the space including the event night a few hours before our arrival. We got a limousine and invited 25 people from which 6 of them flew from different states to Dallas. We got there at 12:20 and the manager said we are so so so so sorry. My general manager Kim gave the stage to some of his friends that came to the club tonight, and he offered me an awful table instead of the stage which was the only reason we came to Kinki. When I talked to Kim, his excuse was that you guys came late and some people asked for the stage. Make sure to be ready for bad surprises when you go in there.
By the way I encountered quite a few people who claimed that they got herpes from the crowed at Kinki. Make sure you pay attention who you are dancing with.
HORRIBLE. This place is the worst bar/club that I have ever been in. I went one time to check it out and will NEVER go backAs with the other reviews I have experienced these d-bag bouncers turning my firends away because they didn't have girls. It's lower greenville, you can't charge cover unless there is an event going on. The crowd is also a bunch of dbags...everyone that can't get into the cool clubs seems to go there and douche it up. They are trying to act like they are some hot club downtown, but they arent...it is a s**t hole and they don't deserve to act like they are awesome.
Kinki Lounge SUCKS..Save ur time and money. I've been to many a clubs in Toronto,DC,Cali, and NY and this Kinki lounge has to be up there with one of the worst I've been to. The bouncers are the worst part about this place. My brother and I had to wait in line for half an hour when there was no one inside. Then told to leave because we didnt bring a girl with us and because we didnt have a bottle reservation.WUT? Im a paying customer and places like this have to get shut down. The bouncer was extremely disrespectful which led to an a brawl with 2 against 5 bouncers. I'm glad my bro was able to smash in the bouncers face before getting suckerpunched by the rest of the bouncers. Even the cops know these bouncers are crooked. Just do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY FROM KINKI LOUNGE...I hope this helps
Worst Bar in Dallas!!! STOP!!. First of all, a line to get in, are you kidding me? There should not and is not a line to get in Anywhere on Lower Greenville! Second, after we waited forever to get in, we're greeted by the smallest and sleaziest club I've ever seen, and I've been to most of the clubs that D had to offer. Just to explain the sleaze factor to you, there was a guy walking around the place with a saddle on his back and girls actually paid him to take a "ride" and there were platforms where the half/barely dressed waitstaff danced while suspect men groped them and shoved dollar bills down their G-strings, just GROSS! The crowd leaves WAY more to be desired as no one is friendly and you have to elbow your way to the bar, just a fight waiting to happen. But, get this, once I DID get to the bar and ordered my surely overpriced drinks, when I was ready to close out my tab the bartender LOST my credit card!!! He "accidentally" gave it to his best friend because it "looked the same!!" WHAT?! Oh, but I was so comforted because his friend made over $250K a year and when I talked to the manager, who was all smiles and cheese, he offered to give me a free dinner at the SPORTS BAR he owned next door!! I will NEVER EVER EVER go back or so much as look in the direction of this "club"/stripclub. You should keep searching! I implore!!
Great place for $30K Millionaires.
The door guys are the biggest drawback to this place. They want to be tipped to let you in regardless of the crowd. They're all on a power trip.
You have to valet and it takes a while to get your car back when you leave. They lost my keys once which was nice.
The drinks are weak and the shots are small. Both are over-priced.
The crowd is usually a $30K millionaire sausage party with a few girls that think they are way cuter than they are. Free bottles draw that crowd. An "UltraLounge" that consistently gives away free bottles- what does that tell you?
If you like Purgatory, Wish, Cirque, Glo- you'll fit right in. The place has potential but needs new ownership and door staff. My suggestion- try Candleroom or Suite.
FIRE THAT. WE WAITED FOR 30 MINUTES AND THEN STUCK UP GUY AT THE DOOR TALKED SO RUDE THAT I WOULD HAVE GIVEN HIM A PIECE OF MIND BUT MY FRIENDS STOPPED ME..ANYWAY WE LEFT AND WENT TO THE PETE'S DUELING PIANO BAR IN ADDISON..THAT PLACE ROCKS..KINKI BAR CREW GETS ALL THUMBS DOWN.
Never been.... I've never been to this place and will never go based on these reviews....check um all out if u think this is club u wanna try..
Everything but the door guy. I really loved the place. Only problem was the door guys ruin the place. I loved the service, loved how the place looks, and there is a good looking crowd. I was on the list at the place and still had all kinds of trouble getting it. Made me very irked and took a while for me to loosen up and have fun. THE DOOR GUYS SHOULD BE FIRED!
