Snatch: Bar and Club

Wave around a name like Mike Tyson's, and yes, your bar's name will be plastered all over the news.

Supposedly "straight out of Hollywood" and opened by manager Greg Lites, friend to Hollywood celebrities, Snatch claims that you'll be able to rub elbows with the world's rich and famous.

Adhering to this rule, Mike Tyson cut the ribbon on opening night. Other than that, Snatch isn't much better than the Club One it was before. The decor is the same-red and tacky. The space is still sprawling, and the powerful sound system still churns out deafening dance music. Go-go dancers still annoyingly bounce around. The only refuge? A dark booth or the upstairs VIP area. If you're in the mood for rare star spottings, Snatch is the place; but otherwise it's not worth the trip up the escalator.
