Went there last night and at the bar we asked if they had prossecco by the glass and was told by the barmaid that they didn't but might sell it by the bottle. She went away to check and came back and said yes she took and held my credit card. A minute later someone turned up from the back... More

Music was good, and crowd was lively the night I was in. Drinks were fairly pricey but they are everywhere in city walk really, strange feeling with people not really dressing up for a night out here, people with shorts, caps, trainers on this was a little strange coming from the uk where this just would t happen.

About 20 seats possible in the whole place, so plan to stand here. Drinks were ok, bathrooms were clean. It is not convenient to just visit since it's in the City Walk complex. Ugly go go dancers have got to go.

Crappy dance floor. Over crowded in a bad way. Just plain crappy. Save your time and go anywhere else.

I went to city walk for my bachelorette party. We were new to the city walk night life and decided to visit The Groove for some dancing. The workers of the dance club were extremely rude and while waiting in line I witnessed them act very hostile against those customers that they deemed were beneath their club. I was so... More

After having dinner and drinks at CityWalk on a Sunday night, we walked over to The Groove, primarily just to peek inside and satisfy our curiosity. However, once we stepped inside we immediately felt a positive vibe. The dance floor was packed and the dark blue lighting was seductive. Two scantly dressed house dancers were on elevated platforms adding to... More
