Bouncers took forever to get through the line. I had heard so many good things about this place to be disappointed when we got there. For one the cover charge was $15 to just be on the dance floor which is horrible small!!!!! People were rude and pushing bouncers did nothing about it. The drinks are pathetically expensive and each... More

We went out to Aqua a recent Friday night, it was amazing! The DJ was great for dance music. Dance floor was crowded, which is normal for a good night club and we had VIP so we were able to get away when we wanted to. VIP is the only way to go, amazing staff and beautiful ladies lighting fire... More

I honestly think it depends on yourself and the type of music you like. I have a decent or better time every time I go. It's always crowded but if you line that and rap music you'll enjoy yourself. It's really what you make of it.

The dance floor is the smallest I've seen in a long time. The bouncers (as fellow reviewers suggested) are one of the worst behaved people I've seen in Minneapolis. They have $2 tequila shots which are an abomination in the name of tequila shots. The $2 shots were like water adulterated with 2 drops of tequila. I ordered one of... More

3 girlfriends of mine and myself headed out to Minneapolis for the long weekend and went to Aqua since we met one of the bouncers as we were looking for a good club to head to. We basically went there three nights in a row (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). On Sunday, they searched our purses and told us that sunglasses... More
