Anaheim >Ember Cafe and Music Club
FYI, Im just a bartender at Ember, but Id like to respond to the parking situation. The city of Anaheim did not really want a new bar/nightclub in the devoloping downtown area where Ember was finally built. With this, they allowed us to open, dependant on our ability to enhance the neighborhood, and not become another bar/nightclub that acts irresposibly and irritates the neighborhood by adding to drinking related crimes, and noise which a lot of bars/nightclubs do. We respect families, neighborhoods, and our city.
Part of us controlling that is by having a HUGE (300 car capacity) parking lot, and requiring all customers to valet. It is for the quality of the neighborhood, and City of Anaheim (which is doing a great job of creating a vibrant "work, eat, play" downtown). Considering valet is only $6.00 (quite cheap for valet), and that we sub-contract a valet company where none of their employees are on our payroll, Ember is NOT making hardly any money, if any, on each car that is parked. We would rather have you and/or your friends who have been drinking all night to do what drunks do (yell, p*ke, fight) on our property than on city property where you can actually endanger the reputation of our business, and yourself, with the law. That is the reason for required valet parking situation. I hope I explained that well! Happy New Year!
It's and ok place to be at.. Parking is lousy at this place either you park a block away or you have to wait in line to valet. The line to get in takes for ever even when the club is empty, even the line for bottle service took too long, The place inside looked amazing, very trendy, and it had good DJs. The drinks were moderately priced. What I did like was that you could go upstairs to another dance floor with different music. The bouncers were nice but the bartenders and other employees seemed ticked-off.
Worst place to BE!!!! Even before you get in the Club..
Literally, as soon as I parked my can on the street I noticed that an "a hole" not gentlemen radioed someone and as soon as I approached the Club I was told that it was a NO parking zone. Sorry but I?m not an idiot and I know Anaheim?s city parking regulations. It?s more of a money scheme. I would have had it parked valet but the line was too long and what $6 dollars isn?t going to hurt. To be sincere after this incident I didn?t want to look back and give this Club any of my and my party?s money. Too bad our intentions were to get Bottle service but after this incident I truly don?t recommend this club at all. More than anything, Music and drinks are good at most of the clubs in the area.
NEVER AGAIN on a SAT. Night!!!!!
These lady?s are going elsewhere.
Do the math.... where do you get more profit? At the bar or Valet?
Valet parking REQUIRED.. Would have had a better review if I had the opportunity to go in. You are basically forced to valet park. They have employees guarding adjacent public street parking and telling people that they have an agreement with neighbors to not let club goers park on the street. We did not see any signs requiring special parking permits and saw their valet employees parking cars on the very streets we were told not to park. We left very disappointed.
cxkmkcm. this was a fun place to go and eat, very inspriational and very insightful. i loved the food and cant wait to go back.
had a blast. This place was great, we went for my cousins b-day and had a blast. The servise was great except the girl that charges at the door, that won't brake a smile, she was not nice at all. Love the fact that they care about what people wear, it makes it upscale so that getto people don't get in and start trouble. If you're out of town this place is for you. Just try to get there at 9:30 and you don't have to pay the full price($20). Great music and great drinks=0)
great for singles!. Place is awesome!! Hottest crew in town! Bottle service suggested and you'll be the popular table all night! trick to get in with no wait is mention you want to go to the cafe half an hour before the club opens. The food is great something you wouldn't expect from a nightclub and presentation is very gourmet esk. Friendly servers and staff makes you feel like a highroller!! Dress to impress!!!
Saturday Night Club. Yo, Club was tight. Hot women, great atmosphere and good music. The service was helpful and the drinks were good. This is a a coo club in the OC. Check it out.
