Dead. – This place is DEAD. Saturday night and there were 10 people inside at midnight. Just awful. What's worse is that they charge a cover charge (who do they think they are??!?!???), and the dude at the door said that there were tons of people inside. There weren't. He lied. I'll never go back. This place sucks. Don't waste your time or money.
NOT WORTH YOUR DIME!!!! – We've seen pretty much any bar/club in Austin and Karma Lounge is by far the worst ever!! While appearances can mislead any newcomers, don't be fooled by the poor management and service. They keep claiming that the new management is changing things around, but the same old folks are running the show. The service is absolutely TERRIBLE, and everything is way too over priced. They just can't compete with the awesome bars/clubs on 4th street (I will not name any) so they just have to price themselves out of the market and be rude at the same time. Don't fall in the same trap as we did. THIS PLACE IS NOT WORTH YOUR DIME!!!
I felt like I was in another city having fun – I was in there for the Motorcycle show on Sept.17th and it was was absolutly fantastic. The crowd was sexy and the staff was awsome. We were in there private room in the back called the Shag room, and we had bottle service like I was in Vegas BABY! I'm definetly coming back. I encourage everyone to check this place out.
Dark. Lonely. – It's too dark in here. I could barely see my friend, let alone across the floor. Not a place to peoplewatch or meet others. And classy? Painting the walls black and hanging red acryllic everywhere doesn't exude "class" in my opinion. Friday had $5 cover and once we get upstairs there's 10 people up there, staff included. Luckily we got a drink with admission, so it wasn't a total loss. Too far removed from 4th to draw crowds. There's apparently a dancer in a tank behind the bar (Classy!) but I've never seen it occupied the times I've been there. In conclusion, if your idea of a night out is hanging in the dark and not being seen or seeing others, then this is your place! There's private rooms, but when nobody can see you anyways, why pay for the extra "privilege?" The setup here doesn't promote a social atmosphere.
Great New Spot! – If you're tired of the typical fourth street scene head up a few blocks to Karma. The way this place is designed on the inside makes you feel like you are in Miami or Vegas or somewhere. The DJs are awesome and there is always something different going on each week.
Absolutly amazing experience at KARMA – I was at Karma for an event and for my birthday and this lounge is well needed for Austin. Thanks god there's a bar like this here in town. I feel like I'm in another town when I'm here. We had there Candleroom for my party and it was sweeeettt!. The room was conected to the working bar. It was about 30 of us and I'll never forget the experience. They had hott girls modeling in there aquarium above the bar. They have a giant private bed in there VIP room and lastly there shag room is unbelievable. I highly recommend this club, every person needs to see this bar. KARMA is great!!
