But Club Madonna isn't just about the girls, it's more about the comedy, the dancing, and the simple fact that it's a less than 5-minute taxi ride from South Beach's luxurious hotels. It's the relaxed atmosphere, the easy-going staff, and the cool music that keeps you coming back. It's, in short, all about grinding up against some very fine women in an ice-cold comfort zone. All of this is to be expected after you've paid for a $30 taxi ride to the massive club while you’re still waiting for it to open (like I said, it's the other things in South Beach that tend to let you down). Proceed through the doorway and you'll see a semi-crowded dance floor, with an emphasis on African American dancers. There are also two bars -- one with cushy seats and all the soft drinks you can drink, and the other with the dance floor. The DJ booth is huge and, like Bratz Dolls Xtravaganza in Chicago, again, has no windows. Not a bad place to go if you're spending $30 for some tactless lap dances.
The space is divided into two; the main area is the dance floor, one bar; and a reserved room for private dances for a 25-50-person minimum per couple. The music is mostly R&B and hip-hop.. It's not, however, the type of R&B that makes your skin crawl and leaves you feeling dirty, but is actually fun to dance to... So, to be honest, it more or less felt like I was spying on a group of cool friends dancing as I went past looking for a table... Which, to my bummed out mind, felt nice. If you walk straight across the dance floor, continuing towards the second bar, there is a plush little section, to the right of the DJ booth to the right of the bar itself. It's where a group of four or five women lay on couches, surrounded by mirrors. You could, if you really wanted to; chat to them for ages, watch what they were doing, or otherwise get to know them. d2c66b5586
