A Great Freaking Time. It was my friends 22nd birthday and we wanted to celebrate it right. I've been hearing really good things about Sutra recently so, we decided to splurge on Bottle service. OMG... GOOD FREAKING TIMES! our waitress, Brittany, was super sweet, really friendly, and way hott. I really liked her. We never ONCE had to pour our own drink, she was SO on top of it. The music was SO good. DJ Lisa was there and we could not stop dancing. Overall I had a great time at Sutra, and so did the birthday girl. I'm so glad we chose Sutra for her birthday...it was a great freaking time!
Epic Fun. Closet thing I have come to a superclub outside of Las Vegas on the West Coast...Highly Recommend it!
Attended last week & SUTRA is going to show the OC what New Year's is all about; Decadence!. I attended Sutra last week for the first time since I have moved to OC. The DJ was great and the buzz of New Year's at Sutra loomed throughout the entire club. I will be in attendance while SUTRA brings in the New Year's with three different rooms and they even have an AERIELIST! I bought my ticket at LIVIDUP com
Never had a bad time at Sutra!.
I have just read the reviews posted here for Sutra. I have been there myself about 6 or 7 times over the past two years (the last time being only about a month ago) so I thought I'd add my two cents and perhaps comment on some of the points made.
I used to go out dancing all the time, but the OC night club scene has changed alot and I guess so have I. I've since been to a few other hot spots in the area, but Sutra is always a number pick for me. I honestly like a more intimate setting, a place that's not huge or with lots of big dance floors. It makes it more fun and "cozy" for a lack of a better word. And Sutra is definitely "Cozy".
The crowd from my experience tends to good looking, well dressed and definitely upscale. Yes, the drinks are pricey, but to be expected at a place like that. And then again, the pour is generous.
My only complaint is I wish they'd feature a broader mix of dance music. Hip hop all night long becomes redundant, in my opinion. I'm sure the DJ is just playing what he's told to play and so for that, I must say he mixes a great flow. I have heard many to compare to.
As for their food, I've never had it so I can't comment. I have only heard that it's good. As far as cocktail service at the table, never a problem. The waitress always coming around and bringing another round of drinks upon request. The bar service, same thing. Never a problem getting drinks. Friendly service and yes, they are all beautiful, not that I'm gay. Lol!
All things considered, I'd recommend this club to anyone looking for a decent place to party in Orange County. We need more places like this to go to release the stress of a long work week.
Last thought. I wish I could offer more criticism, but I'm the type to take real complaints to management. Other wise I write about positive experiences. And I write honestly. Happy clubbing, everyone! Oh and Happy Halloween. I'm obviously staying in tonight.
It has never failed me ....
I've been to Sutra several times, & it has yet to be a busted mission ... my last visit was when a group of friends (12ppl) & I met for dinner (no VIP/table service just dinner) as a going away party for 1 of our friends & had a blast ... service was friendly & prompt ... we even received a complimentary appetizer platter which included calamari, sushi, etc.... & it was great ... i decided to get the steak for dinner & shared w/my gf ... honestly, it was good & was enough to share ... as far as partying, i've always had a blast at sutra, people are great over all ... music is always good (top 40, hiphop, pop) ... only con about it is, it's such a party scene that it gets reallllllllyyyyyyy crowded ... but that's when you know it's a good spot when so many people go ... they sometimes even have artists (famous or upcoming) perform live ... Sutra's always been good to me, & their drinks has always done the job for me :-) ... I have yet to drive away from sutra ... i'm always taken home by a cab ...
I dont know what night these other people go w/their bad reviews (seems like ppl always only write reviews for anything after a bad experience anyway) ... but as I said, I have yet to have a bad night at Sutra ... & no, I dont work there nor did I get paid to write this review ... just honestly have always had a good time at Sutra & always look forward to going back.
DeeJay on Thursday Sux. Went for a friends birthday party, which got us out of the cover they charged the couple in front of us, even though it was only 9. Turned into club at 10, and was very full by 11. Seemed to be lots of barely 21, and some looked to be underage even. The Deejay would have been fine is he would have bothered to play a song for more than 45 seconds. Highly annoying since after you adjust to one beat, you have to figure out a whole new one. Not fun to dance to.
Not Classy at all. This place was once a classy joint but not anymore. First of all they are too lax with their dress code in that now foolish mob members are walking in this place with their foolish white tee attire. I wet to this place after watching a couple of games at a sports bar, going here was a mistake. The place was full with a samoan organized mob who later cowardly tried to jump two gentlemen outside for no reason whatsoever.. They are the same people who were bullying people in the club pushing them and looking for a fight all thie time. The security at this place is too lenient with who they let in. In a nutshelll if you are going to risk your life going here, avoid standing next to any of those mob foolish members in sagging jeans and white tees. Especially teh samoans they are there to look for trouble half the time. This place has to have better security and control who is getting into their club to at least get their class back.
Classy and upbeat atmosphere with a lack of squarefootage. Sutra Lounge is definitely one of the classiest and liveliest nightclubs in OC. Music is great and the customers reflect a exciting sense of fashion by their choice of outfits. However, everybody's way too snobby unless you are on steroids, covered with tattoos, and walk around with a $1000 cash in your hand to show off. But that's the saddest and ultimate truth about the OC anyway. The other main issue is that the place actually is a little bit small. Dance floor to be exact. My overall perspective on this club is very pleasing and it deserves a solid 4-star. Sutra is a great choice for both Fridays and Saturdays.
Not Impressed. This was my first time at Sutra on a Thursday night.......our group consisted of 5 girls and 2 guys.....and we know a promoter so we got to pass up the long line and waltzed right in. My first impression was that it was a lot smaller than I expected but it seemed ok, boy was i wrong. So.....i cant complain about the drinks.....because they are pretty strong.......but like I said it doesnt hurt to know a promoter. Anyway the place is extremely cramped......and the dancefloor is tiny. Not to mention the music and the people........geez.......i felt like i had just flashed back to highschool. Honestly I really cant imagine what this place looks like with the lights on........because something smelled horrible. We saw Paris Hilton and Benji Madden.......and underager Ryan Scheckler........but since when is that a reason to go to a crappy club. After two drinks we ended up going across the street to a dive bar.....which was surprisingly a better experience. If you want to have an amazing clubbing experience make the trek up to LA.....
Great Place to have Birthday Party. After reading so many not so pleasant reviews on this particular lounge, but I had no choice to book it because all the LA clubs were all booked that night and I need a place to celebrate my birthday. Anyway, so I had my birthday party at Sutra on Saturday. I have to say it was a busy night with long lines, but my guests and I didn't have to wait in line because we've reserved a table. The bouncer and VIP host were very friendly to myself and my guests. VIP host got me a table just right next to the bar where I could see everything going on at Sutra. Our waitress was so nice and helpful to our party. She kept coming once in a while and asked us if we need anything. Oh, forgot to mention, they even gave me a "gatekeeper" for my table. And the guy was so funny, too. I had a blast at Sutra that night. Service was excellent! Music was great! People were hot! I will definately go back again soon.
