Love Their Dance Floor
This is one of the best places in Pune which offers one of the best dance floors in Pune. You will love the concept with which this place is made, Considering its closer to the Bombay-Pune highway. I did meet a few people who come down here from Mumbai as well, no wonder its such a happening place.
Awesome Place...Loved It
I went there last Saturday. And I completely loved the place.
It has got a beautiful ambience and its quite spacious too.. I loved the Dance floor.
Guys, put your dancing shoes and head towards Area 51 for sure.. Its worth exploring.. you will love it..:) :)
Great Saturday Evening
Its a great place for unwinding, the only good one this side of town. The dance floor is undoubtedly awesome. Food too is great, although haven't really tried out a great deal. Just plain and simple, great music. DJ knows his job just fine, service is also pretty quick. Do try!
The Biggest Revolving Club in entire Asia
Area 51 well know for its partying circuit and its also popular because of its brand PANCARD CLUBS . The best part abt this place is that its dance floor and the proper Clubbing feel that we get there . The dance floor is the biggest revolving club and also Area 51 is the Biggest club with a revolving club in entire Asia :) Can u believe that .. Yes its true . As of now its only open on Saturday nights and no other day . But an amazing party experience for a Saturday night full tight experience . worth a visit :)
good place to have fun
do your homework of finding its location before going to area51 as its quite difficult to reach using the navigation map on ur phone.it takes you to a wrong route and there is barely any direction board on the main road the first signboard you come across is when you take a turn towards the baner hill.they have a look of an alien spaceship and interior is pretty good to get wasted and dance all night.the place shuts down around 2.stags aren't allowed but at times they let a girl stag with a couple.the bar menu is good and price is what normally find in all discotheques.i have been there only on saturdays and they organize wonderful gigs.my favourite till date was nikhil chinapa's on 3rd nov.the crowd is good minus the hovering drunk jackasses.
Area 51 - out in the middle of nowhere (like the black ops intelligence warehouse for the US government in the desert) is actually in the middle of a hillock range which you get to when you weave past winding roads disguised as village paths in the Baner area.
The location is also known as Pan Card clubs and this is basically a subset of the same.
Huge popularity, especially when Brangelina were in town (shooting for a US film based on the life of journalist Daniel Pearl) who were rumoured to have visited the club.
My take is that this place is described as "moody" in more ways than one. The DJ area, dance floor, bar etc. are all great and really do deserve a 2 Thumbs Up! The crowd control is also quite good and all that muscle and testestorone displayed actually does ensure a level of safety where possible.
The crowd itself though that comes to this place is a mix of vastly different socio-economic strata that sometime cause a normally fun and frolic place to take a turn for the worse.
Best time to go is from 8 pm till midnght post which the level of drunken behavior and vile presence leaves you with a bitter after taste.
The bathrooms always are a mess.
Serving staff are very willing to help, kind and courteous and put with a lot of difficult customers. They could do with a course in English and culture orientation to handle guests who either are from, or pretend to be from a more "party-oriented" culture.
Also staff seem to be doing this more out of interest as they look to be locals who have been hired cheap and there is an apparent lack of management presence whenever you go there i.e. the owner of the club or the people that actually rake in the big money.
In conclusion, the place gets an average rating on account of the lack of apparent cleanliness, average food, average pricing on the drinks, poor crowd screening, good crowd control, average music (revert to crowd pleasers when the mood starts to damp with the presence of lesser social elements), not much value for money - overrated pricing and entry fees. Potential is very strong and present for this place to truly be the world class level No. 1 choice in Pune - but that'll take a while more before it happens.
Area 51 - 50/50
