    Well first off some kid standing next to us decided to throw up all over the floor - he said he did too much meth that night... The bartenders were too busy trying to flex in their undies that they failed to actually serve drinks. The DJ (Jason) was pretty typical and lame. Played hex-hector remixes and pawned them off as his own. All in all not my recommendation. Plus a guy was beaten to death a few months back trying to go to the bar (says something about the area).

    I was at Be Bar for their night called Be Bad and had a great time. The DJ's, House of Bath were so great and the crowd was fun. Props to the club for also having a VJ, dancers and that Mr. Ass. Be Bad at Be Bar is the place to be every month.

    In the five times I've been to Be Bar, they've had the same two problems each time: bartenders are not selling drinks at a reasonable pace. It's nice that they're good looking, but the staff needs to understand their primary purpose is getting alcohol to patrons, not posing! And when you buy drinks, they need to come out...but the restroom situation is unacceptable. Provide urinals for drinkers, and people can use the stalls for other purposes!!

    With the 2 bartenders that was behind the bar and about 15 customers, they did not seem like they had time to wait on any of them. We waited for 20 mins and not even a hello or will BE with you in a min. We ended up taking or money somewhere else. Talk about BEing Rude!

    Really a VERY nice place, in a new part of town. Gotta see it to appreciate it. Also, they had to battle the local Church to get their license. The Church put up a great fuss, making all sorts of false accusations. That in itself is reason enough to go: Just to show the religious zealots that they LOST!!!
