I was looking for a place to hold a 27th Birthday party. My friends and I heard of Slate. We figured it would be good because it offers a club/bar feel as well as a sports bar, so everyone would be happy. We also loved the fact that each floor and room offered different music. Not the case. We reserved a table a week ahead of time. When we got there they let us in immediately, which was nice, and sat us at a table. We asked our waitress and the manager if the music was going to be techno all night and she said no. We then ordered two bottles, which is mandatory, at a total of $800 and began to wait for the music to change. The dj then told us he was playing for a private event and would play techno all night. We were pissed cause we were not informed, so they moved us downstairs to the gaming room. We looked stupid being down there all dressed up, but we gave it a chance. We then ordered $100 worth of crappy appetizers. The dj here played late 90's hiphop. We figured we should just enjoy ourselves since we paid $900 so far!! Then the dj told us he was moving upstairs. We got excited and moved our table upstairs. It is now 2:00 am. He then starts playing techno r&b covers from the early 90's. By this point there was NOONE in the club or downstairs. It was a horrible experience and a waste of money. When we first arrived there was a large crowd, the dj was horrible and it forced people to leave. Maybe this club needs better management.

Slate is a really awesome place to hang out with friends or take a date. The appetizer trio is a great idea.

I dont understand how a place that has pool tables can have such great food. You would think that a celebrity chef owns the place. Fantastic!

I love this place. They have a great happy hour and get the trio platter you get 3 different appetizers in large portions. when I saw the plates coming my way I thought they mixed up the order.did I mention that I love this place :)

My girlfriends and I went to Slate on a Wed. night. We first went for dinner upstairs, which was outstanding and for a great price. The cocktails were full of flavor. This place has everything. Its a great place to meet people, and its absolutely fun. I am definitely coming back.

This place was 'the bomb diggitie'...if that still translates to 2006. We had a small lunch there one day and found out that the lunch rate included pool which was so much fun and inexpensive. Great atmosphere... loved the bartender... unpretentious food (I mean, they have a cheeseburger wrap! fabulous!), and non crowded (well, the place is huge so that helped). It was still pretty excellent... highly recommended.
