Austin, let's talk about it. What do you think of Pangaea?
Is impressive from the outside, non?
So impressive that DJ AM will be playing there next month for Pangaea's first birthday.
Hmm.....for some reason, I have my suspicions about Pangaea. Is very chichi (and sorry, but DJ AM just doesn't do it for me).
But! Before I go any further, I must admit I've never actually been to Pangaea. I've heard it's fun for dancing, and in fact, here is what Michael Barnes has to say about the place:
Let me dispense with three misconceptions:
- Because it is cordoned off by a velvet rope, Pangaea is exclusive. (Frankly, I’ve never seen anyone turned away. It’s an illusion.)
- You must spend several hundred dollars on bottle service. (No, you can purchase a reasonably priced drink at one of two bars.)
- Upscale spots like this decrease Austin’s weird factor. (This is my main point: Austinites are the customers. So it’s very, very Austin. Slightly more dressed up than usual, but variety is not an anti-Austin condition.)
Have you all been to Pangaea? And if so what did you think?
