We did our first fun night out at Greystone Lounge this year and had a blast! You know those nights when you’re expecting to have a little bit of fun, but end up having so much fun that your voice is hoarse, your feet hurt, and go to bed way too late? It was one of those nights. Greystone is located off of Sheridan Dr and I believe it’s Mickey Mantle Dr. They have a slogan, “Follow the pink flamingo” because they have pink flamingos on their windows and it’ll be easy to spot it. At least that’s my theory.
The decor is lofty, refined, very posh. I really liked the set up they have inside because it flows. They have four large couches with plenty of room right in the middle and a few roomy VIP areas with a few stairs so people don’t bother you. As the night progresses the surrounding space becomes a dance floor. I like to book a VIP area because it can get pretty busy and I know I have a place to sit between dancing and can chat with friends.
I felt like it’s a place where I would go to get an old-fashioned and relax….but the DJ played such great music, I didn’t really get a chance to sit and enjoy my cocktail. I mean, I did enjoy a few cocktails, but I was so enthralled in the music, laughing, and dancing I didn’t even think about sitting down. We did have some members that just relaxed on the couches, enjoyed the music and got to know new friends. That’s one of the great things about this place. You can do both!
The staff was really nice, attentive, and pretty quick. Ryan was my bartender and he was very sweet. Even though it got busy he remembered my name and my drink so that was definitely a plus. There was also a VIP host that came around to make sure everything was ok so that was pretty cool.
So I have to talk about their gif/video maker set up. I’m probably way more excited about this than most people, but I’ll tell you about it anyway! Right before you get to the walkway towards the exit you will see a screen on the wall. You can make videos and gifs all night if you wanted to. We had so much fun and laughed so hard at how ridiculous we were being. Picture or it didn’t happen? Watch them below.
It was really awesome to see friends I haven’t seen in a while and I also got to meet so many new friends. I can always tell when it’s someone’s first event with Inner Circle because they have this nervous look on their face, but by the end of the night everyone was having a blast chatting it up, laughing, and dancing the night away. I love seeing the new friendships being made! Thank you all for making Inner Circle such a great organization and I’ll see you at the next event!
