This two-story nightclub in the heart of the entertainment district caters to those who love dance, techno, house and trance. Loyal to the city, Pulse only features local DJs trying to make their mark.

The downstairs room is very cool, painted bright blue with black lounge seating around the edge of the walls. There's two bars and a main DJ booth, but little room for dancing. It's a spot for socializing, more than anything.

The second floor has a much different feel. Painted in a warm toupe colour, there's lots of lounge seating, a long bar against the front wall and a big open dance floor. The back corner hosts a VIP Room that can be rented for intimate parties complete with a personal security guard.

I love this thread, the one in the UK forum saved my ass so many times this summer. I can't even tell you.

I think this thread would help a lot of American kids coming down for the big parties. They are always asking a lot of questions pertaining to clubs/ hotels and all that jazz.

Good work boys!
