Addison >Nine 7 Two
So true about reverse racism. I'm Asian and these white dudes are right about reserver racism. I feel very comfortable being around white people because of not being stared at due to my brown skin color. They're respectful, calm, soft spoken and have other traits that we Asian people share as well. But, black folks will stare at other races the entire time when there're just a few non blacks like they've never seen us before. You need to stop hating other races due to their skin color and start socializing with other non blacks and move into a mixed community instead of being around blacks all the times by choice. I was planning to go to this club, but this vanesarose dude helped to make a decision. I'll not be going to this club because of pelple like him at this club who will make you very very uncomfortable. Thank you for posting your comment.

I think it's odd how the "white" user John called his experience at vue reverse racism.
How are you calling others minorities by their skin color, when in fact you would be the minority in the situation.
Other races out number whites, so how can they even be called the minority?
If the club has more african-american, latino and asian people in it, why would you feel uncomfortable being white? Are you not comfortable in your own skin around other races? Is it mandatory for you to ALWAYS be in a majority white club? Can you not get over your own racism?
Quit being so up tight and just enjoy yourself where ever you go. People react to attitudes, and this guy must have portrayed a crappy attitude once he stepped in the door and didn't see as many white people as he wanted to. Get over yourself and realize that white people can't have everything to themselves. We're all in the same world and that will never change. AND NO I AM NOT A "MINORITY".
Yet Another Example of a Dance Club in North Dallas Going Downhill.
This place wreaks of reverse racism. When it first opened, this place had a lot of potential. But like every other dance club in Dallas, it soon became less diverse and began catering to the minority crowd. And at every one of these types of clubs, the same general occurrences take place:
1. A female can't dance without getting grinded up on by 2 or more men.
2. Something will happen that will cause you to get kicked out and the minor incident, such as bumping into someone on accident while dancing, will be immediately resolved by you getting escorted out when the real reason is that you're of a different skin color.
3. The rules will apply to you but not to their bread and butter.
4. The place will eventually shut down (Examples - Maxwell's, Club X) or will become a place you tell your friends not to go to again (G Lounge).
I already recognized a guy from G Lounge hanging out at Sting where Club X once resided. That place will be the next bar that could have been great but failed to keep a diverse crowd and catered only to minorities. It seems that it happens at every dance club and that's a shame since there aren't too many places to dance anymore.
We've got two posters on here dancing around the subject. Let's call it what it is...reverse racism. To sum it up, if you're a white male, I suggest not going to Nine 7 Two and avoid the drama.
Double charged. My girlfriends and I went to this club on a Saturday night. When we got in it seemed ok. We went and ordered our drinks and went and found a table. One of my girlfriends said that her drink was wrong and I offered to go and get her another one. When I got to the bar, the bartender, a girl, took back the bad drink and gave me a new one with no argument. All was going well for about 30 minutes but then the place got way too crowded so we left. My friend, who had left her tab open, forgot to close it out and remembered about an hour later when we were at another bar. We went back to pick up her card and her tab was $130. We were all in shock. When she asked to speak to a manager we were told to wait. I finally had to walk to the back and stand in the kitchen refusing to get out of the way til someone got a manager. 45 min later, one finally showed. I explained what had happened and he looked at the tab and said that the bartender had double rang us and had charged my friend for the drink that she got wrong even though we took it right back. He said he would change the tab and we could be on our way. We were getting in the car when we heard a girl yelling. It was the bartender with the manager trailing behind. She got in our faces using some choice words and asked what the problem was and threatened to call the cops. Then another girl came out, who seemed to have the same vocabulary as the first one, telling those two not to believe me because I was there last week disputing my tab and threw a pen in her face. That happened to be my first time there, not to mention my last. I explained to these people that my husband was an attorney and we were leaving and if they had any issues with that to call him and I gave them his card. Suddenly things seemed to change. We were apologized to and the tab was reduced. I have never been treated so disrespectfully and rudely in my entire life. I do not recommend this place to anyone!
For renting the most expensive room, the experience was crappy.
This past saturday wasn't my first time at Nine 7 Two. This was the reason why I chose to book my best friend's party at this location. When I called last week to book the Cigar Room, I was told this was the premier room in the whole place, with 2 plasma screen tv's, plush couches/chairs, and a Nintendo Wii. I was told we could bring decorations, a cake, and a few snacks and I got a room discount. I was sold. The Vue daytime staff is amazing. Very helpful and very nice.
Our party arrived that evening, and I was greeted by the cutest and nicest cocktail waitress, she was wonderful the whole evening. She brought me my bill like I had requested, and the total was incorrect. My discount that was promised wasn't on there. (strike one). Once that was corrected, we asked to play Nintendo Wii and were told it broken...which is was. (strike two). Midway through the evening we wanted to eat our snacks and we were told we couldn't have it inside the venue AND on top of that the night manager yelled at a guest in my party IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE GROUP about the situation. He upset the birthday girl. He also, over the course of the evening, tried to keep us from passing freely from one dance floor (Vue) to the other(972). When you book a room, you get to go anywhere you like without having to wait in line. What topped off the whole evening is when he came into the room towards the end of the night and took everyone's drink away and walked out of the room. (strike three) My friend Connie and I found the owner and had an EXTENSIVE discussion with him about the whole evening and all of the events, and luckily he was nice enough to comp almost 65% of the bill. He was the only saving grace for making the evening half way decent. For the amount spent that evening (approx $500+) we got $5.00 service. I will never......EVER recommend this place to anyone for any reason.
Great party!!. I planned my husbands birthday at Nine 7 two after hearing great things from my friends about this place and they were right. I can't say enough good things about it...I got the wine room and it was so nice and close to the dance floor. The music was kickin, the place was jumping. We spend a great time dancing, socializing all night long. There was a great mix of people, great decor and the vibe is amazing. Want to thank everyone at nine 7 two for making my husband's birthday memorable!!
Never been so shocked in my life!.
Some friends had came from out of state and we decided to take them to nine 7 two. We had been there a few times before it has always been OK. We took our friends there because it was close to home and they wanted to dance and we had gotten out kinda late. Anyway we'd been having a good night hangin out until I had an experience that shocked the hell out of me. A friend of ours was talking to a guy whom she knows and thing were getting a lil heated beween then ..and not in a good way.... I took her hand and told her "come over her with us you don't need that drama tonight". Well as I'm talking to her this guys friend decides for some unapparant reason that he needs to flap his mouth to me and was not saying very nice things...keep in mind I don't know him & never said a word to him until he started his mouth to me... I looked at him a said "I don't think I know you and I'm sure I wasn't talking to you" then turned back to my friend. At that very moment that SOB SPITt on me!!!!! Of course I was mad!! I said "I'll be back with a manager" as I'm trying to find a manager or bouncer I am grabbed by the arm hard enough I had bruises,,,,, I was not trying to fight away or act crazy,,,,, and told I'm to leave I look and there's the guy that spitt on me next to the guy throwing me out. I asked him why but the only answer I got was you just need to leave! Of course as he was escorting me to the door I told him I was spitt on by that guy...he didn't care. I have never been so disrespected in my life! And after reading the review above I feel the need to add I am white and the guy that spitt on me was black. So take with it what you want. I know I'll never return there and sure won't suggest it to anyone!
And yes I know how to spell spitt correctly but that word is against guidlines
The Hottest spot. I've been to 972 twice and each time I went I had a good time. Its a nice atmosphere. They have a great staff. On a scale far as 1-10 I give there customer service a 9. They have a nice jazz band. I fell in love with this place. Most of all I like the area its in.
Unfair Treatment of Particular Guests Deserves Attention & Speculation of Why....
On a recent visit to the Nine 7 Two, I had a terrible experience that I wanted to share it. It was not my first time at the club, however, it will certainly be my last.
Celebrating my birthday weekend, my friends decided to meet up at Nine 7 Two as it is one of the few places that one can dance in Addison. Mind you that I had not had a drop to drink that day so I was definitely ready to unwind. As a guy that loves to dance, they knew it would be a great choice for me. Unfortunately, they were wrong. When we first got to the club, I was greeted by a doorman that was very pleasant, however, he asked me to tuck in my shirt and stressed the club's "strict dress code." I had no problem with this as I was wearing a nice pair of jeans and a buttoned down dress shirt. They were also charging a $10 cover for the guys which seems to change each time we visit the club.
My friends were sitting on a few couches located near the bar and I noticed that two of my friends (hispanic) were wearing their shirts outside of their pants. When I asked them if they had been asked to tuck them in, they claimed that they weren't. One of them was wearing gym shoes as well. One quick glance around the room showed that many of the men, primarily African-American or Hispanic, did not have their shrits untucked...some wore t-shirts as well! The last straw was when I watched 3 gentlemen stroll into the club with their shirts untucked, one of which was wearing sandals. That's when I decided to leave without purchasing a single drink.
I spoke with both the doorman and the gentlemen checking ID's and they claimed that if you received table service, you did not have to follow the dress code. I was also told the guy with the sandals was a personal friend of the doorman. He had no explanation of how my guests were not checked or the others in the bar. What is the point of a dress code, which is in place to ensure a club looks classy, if it is not enforced to all? Smells suspicious to me.
