A smaller and more upscale nightclub in downtown San Jose, it plays host to numerous parties. Midsize in terms of space, but it has two floors. Takes awhile to 'open' upstairs as they wait for the club to fill, but once you're upstairs, it's good to get away from the stuffiness that entails downstairs when the mass of bodies crowd together. Bottle service is restricted to upstairs where one end is open to the outside and fresh air.
Review of Halloween Party 2010: Halloween Part II!!! Attended the Tower of Terror at Motif and partied with all sorts of denizens of the dark! Before going to the party, Stan had to escape the County Corrections Facility at Elmwood and Colonal Sanders had to make a last-minute inspection at KFC. Stan's crime: he stole a bucket of KFC fried chicken and a double-down. Once we got to Motif, we met up with Hawaiian Melinda, Jeremy SWAT, Zombie/Joker Dan, Lil' Miss Riding Hood Sylvia, ninja Simon, and gangsta Kevin. Great Halloween party!

I saw a line building up on my way into Hookah Nites and figured that it would be a packed night. We had already missed out on getting in with the guest list since it was after 11. The line moved steadily, however. I was rather confused once I got in side. Where did all those people in line go? The dance floor wasn't even half way full. I could only assume that a majority of those people in line got bottle service upstairs. I guess I overestimated myself this time. The bar service was speedy. I was setting myself up for trouble when my group started with a Jaeger bomb, followed by two shots of Patron, then a Henn shot. The only drink I actually paid for was the Stella that I had in between the shots. Mixing is not at all recommended for the weak of liver! Luckily I didn't feel any extreme effects since I was on my feet the whole time. It was impossible not to be since the DJs were rockin' the joint. Our night could have gone until last call, but it was shortened due to a minor mishap. No worries, it was fun while it lasted. A bit iffy about whether I'll be back or not. It depends on who's throwing the party.

You'd think that after my last visit that I wouldn't be that interested in going again....
Well....you're right but I was forced to go....after all she was a guest. and she wanted to see her cousins who were going to Motif....
We get there.....and it's already packed but the line is a movin'. After 10
minutes pass and find out that she gets in for free, but it's not all that bad since she feels compelled to pay my cover.
Hell, I won't ask, but I won't stop her either.
We're at the bar drinkin' and run into everybody...and I mean everybody. Her crew is already there.....and more and more keep showin' up. I recognize half of them and realize a lot of them are...get ready for this....from that group Legaci....damn that's memories....what a small f'n world. They went to school with my boys, sung at my sister's cotillion, blah, blah blah......and now they are getting drunk with me. I start dancing with this woman and before I know it - everything slows down and I'm thinking this has just gotten worse. I watch wide eyed as her hand is all over the place and then suddenly in my drink.....and my drink is now suddenly down her back.....
She grins and says "I'm so sorry....let me get you another drink...."
The beats were good, the girls were great, and I was drunk. I swear to gawd every 5 minutes somebody be walkin' up to me yelling "KUYA KUYA!!!!" WTF, is everyone I know who just turned 21 up in this MOFO?? And of course, I had to get every single one of them shots...
15 shots later I need to go the restroom.......what's there to say about a restroom.....sorry 'Belle I got nothing to report. You seen one club bathroom, you seen'em all.
As I walk out to clear my head....I run into one of the crew by himself drunkenly holding a napkin to his bleeding lip.......
I guide him to a corner...find his brother.....and post while I watch girls pick fights with bouncers. Gawd I love it when I'm not the only one drinkin.
So considering that I had a reunion with everybody....and initially sober to appreciate it, I had a good time. I think apart of the good time was because I didn't bother waging war going up stairs. To say the least I was entertained.
