    Voyeur is the Chi Chi nite club to go in San Diego's Gas Lamp district since 2009.

    It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once inside, you enter a dark cavern of earth pounding music on 2 stories. The main dance area is jammed with writhing bodies like a mosh pit at a concert. And it is much like a $100 concert ticket, as you face the DJ spinning in front of a 2 story wall of lights, with 2 cubby holes where hot GoGo girls wearing the skimpiest of outfits strut their charms to the pounding beat, and the lights change colors with bright intensity.

    When I was there on a Friday night recently, the music wasn't bump and grind, syncopated hip-hop, but more Pop/dance/house in a high speed Crystal Meth beat.
    The DJ had a certain style, a wind up the music to a fever pitch on the edge style, that was then rewarded by a large down beat color change explosion of lights. He did this over and over again, regardless of the tune or genre. Any tune, at the right speed, worked this way.

    How about The Jets, that '80s Polynesian American group, with "I Got a Crush On You" in Crystal Meth tempo, sounding more like the Chipmunks? Works here.

    I saw the crowd trying to get in the front, so I just followed 3 people on the side, who paid $20 each to get in. Here, you enter a long hallway, up the stairs, and end up on the second floor above the main floor. It is very dark in here when the Wall of Lights aren't on, and the sound system is earth shattering. There's a roped off private party area up here, and the level's own bar. Downstairs is the main bar.
    Not much for seating here, more of a standing place, so if you've been wearing those platform stilettos for 4 hours, be prepared to stand in them longer.

    Drinks aren't stiff, but the prices are, but then this is not unusual for a club. Crowd is mixed, with a smattering of cute Blonds coming here from the burbs, and the rest following. Not over-run by Squids, but some representing. This is not a lounge, it's a dance and drink joint.

    The Men's restroom has a bouncer, controlling urinal traffic inside with a flashlight, while preventing any double-entry stall activity for drug sharing. There is also an attendant trying to make a few bucks helping you dry your washed hands.

    Cool place to check out when you want to vibrate to sounds in the Gas Lamp.

    Crowded, a line to get it, and you bet you're paying cover! Overall, GREAT music, atmosphere... crowded, no view from upstairs, long lines, most bartenders ignore you. Snobby persons a plenty.

    A splendid spot to see babes being babes. More middle class than the competing Fluxx, but Voyeur is a good time for sure.

    Easy bar to belly up to. Hang at a spot by a pillar that's oddly close to the bar and you've got a private space just for you and your honey. Great people watching from upstairs as well.
