Clublife dying in Dallas... – So everyone knows the terrible economy is hard on everyone. The club scene has certainly been affected, even in Dallas which is supposed to be in better shape than most other cities. Everywhere i have gone recently, the vibe is not there.....tables are empty...people drink at home and arrive late to the club - most of my friends perfer bars over clubs now because of the cost...However, I recently revisited Lift and my woes are cured! A.)$5 valet (compared to $10 or $12 usually) (B.) No cover! (C)$5 drinks before 11:00, and (D.) Half priced bottle service - are you kidding me?!! Finally a club that figured it out...and everyone else figured it our too...it was packed and my friends say its always like that. My only advice is to arrive early unless you thoroughly enjoy waiting in line!
Pleasantly suprised – I hadn't been to LIFT in quite a while, and I was quite impressed with all the changes. The bartender confirmed my suspicions that they have recently moved around some furniture and added a few club lights to the place. It seems that more open space has been created and, because of it, it was easier to get to and from the bar than last time. The party was not confined to the VIP area - by 12:30 the whole place was jumppin and the DJ brought a ton of energy. It seems that while most of the clubs in Dallas have been sparse whenever I have gone looking for a party; the party has been at Lift all along. I'm definitely getting a table on my birthday - 1/2 price bottles - hell yeah!
Has lots of potential... – Went on a Saturday in Nov. 09 as the staff was very friendly. Loved the house music as so many other upscale venues including even Suite have resorted to predominantly Top 40s tracks. Great decor, lighting, and interior design but there are way too many "reserved" tables that were unoccupied throughout the night. Had to leave early that night for a prior commitment, but will definitely be back on a more crowded Saturday evening.
Fantastic upscale club – I wasn't sure what to expect reading the reviews, but it was definitely a pleasant surprise. I drove up and used their valet service. Parking around the area is not easy to find, so the $5 valet charge was an inexpensive and convenient service. When you walk into the building, you walk into the lobby and wait for the elevator where the tasteful music and decor really builds your anticipation. When you get off of the elevator, you are greeted by the hostesses, no cover charge, and go to the bar. I got there about 9:50 on a Saturday night, where they had a singles event. I was afraid that it wouldn't have many people in there that early, but there was a fair amount of people, and as some of the other reviews said, there were more women than men, who weren't afraid to mingle! The DJ did some interesting mixes and mash-ups, and the dance floor was full. Everyone was friendly, seemed like a more professional crowd, and there was a nice variety of attractive people; people came there to impress, and were dressed as such. The bathrooms were clean and easy to get to, and no attendant, which is a plus for me; I always feel guilty for not leaving a tip when I wash my hands. The only drawback is that a good half of the club is private/VIP booths, which seemed a little excessive. I think if they reduce the number of these private booths/tables, would cut down on the congestion around the bar area and dance floor. I know a couple of ladies I was talking to, wanted to sit down for a minute, but all the tables were reserved and empty. The crowd seemed to be mid-20's to mid-30's professional, which is what I am, and what I was looking for. The drinks are average priced for a bar/club on Saturday night; $8-12 for a house vodka and tonic is what I peg as average, and theirs is $8. Was $10 for Grey Goose. Overall, excellent atmosphere and experience and I will be going back again soon!
He love hot men too! – Thanks for the compliment. I am female and appreciate that you think my friends and I are hot! We frequent Dallas Lift club because it?s smaller, tasteful and the men there seem to be interested in more than a hemline ( not that we aren?t wearing them to attract you ) . It?s refreshing to have a club in Downtown that is known for good conversation, service and ?view?. Come on in and say hello ladies, and we will know where you found out about Lift! 
The ladies were everywhere!!! – I couldn't believe it......how often is it when you walk in the club with 4 of your best guys, looking for a little oppisite gender interaction of course....and you get off the elevator and turn the corner and the whole dance floor is chalk full of beautiful women - I love Dallas! I asked the bartender what the deal was and he told me it was just a normal Saturday night. Apparently all the hot women in Dallas show up at Lift before midnight on Saturdays - and the guys haven't figured this out - so this is a message to all my lonely boys out there - can't say I didn't tell ya! I'll be there again this week playing the odds. My bank account can't handle every weekend night in the club so i have to choose wisely - and I believe i am!
Don't waste your time, or money! – Well, I go there with a friend the other night, she insisted it was "the hottest club" right now. We get there, it's tiny, for one thing-their website photos made it seem HUGE! Ok, no big deal, get a drink. The bartender(s) were rude, my drink was not even drinkable, and ridiculously priced-especially when they charge you $75, regardless if you only spent of small fraction of that. The crowd was weird, and kind of uptight. I will not be going back, and I'm sorry I wasted a precious weekend night there..... and by the way, it seems as though too many men have read the previous reviews, because it was ALL MEN!
fine, but,... – I came from Houston, it is hard not to compare the #1 here and #1 there. For me, lift is good enough, but I still like Scott Gertner's sky bar more. I enjoy 3 hr non-stop dancing in Lift, although music was not my type. DJ was good. But, but, but, there was a lady at the 2nd floor entrance charged me $10 on the yesterday (Thurs). From what I heard, there is never cover-charge. There has to be something wrong. It feels good when lots of people enjoy dancing with me/watching me dancing there. As matter of fact, I probbaly was the most pupular dancer during that night. But I probbaly won't be back unless I know the "no-cover-charge" is the typo from citydearch, or lift has chnage it rules
Great Place to Chill....... – I have been trying to find a nice place to go on a Friday or Saturday night to just chill, have some drinks and hear some great music. I decided to go to Lift, but on a Thursday night. The atmosphere was great! Nice lounge with very comfortable seating and more importantly, the staff was nice and very accomodating. The only issue I had was the hold on your card for $75. I purchased 2 drinks and used my debit card. The next day I checked my account, as I always do, and there was a hold from Lift. I called Lift and the owner, Kim, was so gracious to call me back and advise me that the hold is mandatory and that it should be off my card no later than Monday. It was actually off my card by Saturday morning. I appreciated him calling me back and I advised him I did not have a problem with the hold, just wished that I was advised in advance. Other than that, my experience there was great! I plan on going on a Friday night for my sister's birthday and have bottle service! I truly recommend this place!
