    The bouncers were so rude, one even shoved me because he thought i was trying to sneak in without paying. They want you to pay $20 to be treated like shit? No thanks...we left.

    I don't recommend this place. Coworkers and I were harassed by a bouncer on a power trip.

    The easiest way into Recess is by guaranteeing your access though LineRocket! No matter how unfriendly the bouncers are, YOU GET IN! http://www.linerocket.com/ClubDetails.aspx?clubid=95 for

    Recess' bouncers are notoriously unfriendly but once inside it's always a good, crowded, sweaty time.
