Where did this club go?

i used to go here and have a pretty good time. It seems like it has been through a lot of change over the past few years. The parties were always a fair size and someone always seemed to be a good match.

Party on Halloween '07

We recently attended the Halloween party this year and I have to say it was a great one. We've been a few other times and have always had a great time but the crowd was great and we met a great couple not to mention how wonderful Mike and Serina are. I think if it's your first time at a party like this The Arena is a good place to start. If you just want to watch, the exhibitionists love it and if you want to play the voyuers will have a great time too. How much better can it get?? Everyone gets what they want out of this sexy party. We've run into some very nice people everytime we go and have had many fantasies fulfilled there. You really go and check it out for yourselves, you won't regret it. H&T

Fabulous Place To Attend

We attended the Arena for the 7/1 event and it was awesome! There were so many couples. They were spread out across the entire place so you were never too crowded but you definitely knew that there were people there! We had such a great time. The crowd was great, the experience and the comfort were also very pleasing. I don't see how anyone couldn't have a good time here. Serina and Mike, the hosts, are perfect for this type of event and definitely know how to make you at ease. Serina offered us tips and advice that we found invaluable. We will definitely be back. Whether you're new to the lifestyle or if you've been in it for a long time, you have to check this place out!

July 1, 2006 Party

This was my wife's and my first party in the lifestyle and we were quickly put at ease by Sarina and Mike. Their house has a dance floor set up in the living room, a great hot tub in a gazebo out back, and 3 play rooms upstairs. The scene had a variety of people (I think there may have been 25 people in the house at one time) ranging from the early 20's to the somewhere in the 40's. There were a lot attractive people there, not to mention our lovely hosts. Even the people who didn't connect with anyone still enjoyed to some very nice scenery. :-D Since it is a no pressure environment, it might be a tough place for the very shy, as people don't really proposition you if you are just sitting around being a wallflower. Then again, if you want to be left alone, you will be. However, once we started talking to people and getting into the mix things just sort of worked! The action took a while to get rolling, but after a few hours things cruised nicely. And oh! We met a great couple who we left the party with. We came to just check it out with no expectations or "plan" of what we wanted to do, but we found ourselves in some great action. There was definitely more intense goings-on then we engaged in, but we found activity that was right at the level of what we were comfortable with. Note that there is a cover charge, but it was totally in line with what I have seen for other events. In summary, If you are reasonably scoially adept and don't mind going to someone's house, this safe and discreet environment is the way to go. It certainly worked for us!

June 10, 2006 Party

We had a nice time at the party, but all of the couples were a bit shy (us included). Serena was very nice (and very hot in her lingerie) and made several trips to where we were to check in on us. Serena, just an FYI - the redhead and her husband found you totally hot (in case you liked us too)...Several very cute couples left early - the cute asian couple who we regret not talking to (contact us if you read this...BC id: northbaycouple)... I think if some icebreakers had been done, it may have helped get the party started earlier. Overall, a nice place, great hosts and a fun time. We will have to make more of an effort next time to mingle.

We'll Go Back

We've been many times to The Arena. We've always had a great time! All times there were always positive. A good amount of people have always been in attendance. A nice mix of people as well. The hosts are perfect for this type of event - - extremly hospitable, friendly and pretty hot, too! We have enjoyed each experience there and will continue to go back!

Arena - A Fantastic Place

The Arena is a fantastic club. The hosts (Mike & Sarina) are wonderful and just extremely nice. They make you feel so comfortable, which is very important! There is plenty of room to socialize and to play. The place is kept very neat, clean and sanitary. (Clean bedding, towels for personal uses, supplied condoms...) There is usually a pretty good crowd. We've been there a few times and it looks to be around 20 to 40 reservations normally with the age ranges seeming to be around 20's to 40's. There is absolutely no pressure to do anything. Each time we have attended, we have had an amazing time. It is very easy to talk to and meet people. This is an excellent place to attend and a must see for all swingers.

A good place to play - if there's a decent crowd

Been to the Arena a few times and each time has been different. A couple of excellent parties and a few that were pretty good. Had one bad experience there with a pushy guy (his wife was drunk) but they were asked to leave and all was fine. The hosts are warm and friendly and it's a nice house. Our last visit was in May 05 and it was a fun night with about 15 couples. It can be slow sometimes but you can always take your own party :-) But we prefer at least 10 couples and sometimes they don't get that many

Very Sexy!

July 25, 2004 We have been to the Arena 3 times now and each time has been incredibly sexy. We are totally new to the scene and Ashton bent over backwards to make us feel comfortable and to give us her input on what to expect, what is okay and not okay for us or others to do in relation to playing and other tips to make us way more at ease. We will continue to go back to the Arena. Last night was the best of all and going to this club has made it easy to explore "the lifestyle" at our own pace with great looking couples. 10!

Mellow, classy, clean, friendly and pressure-free

I'm in an open relationship, and my wife hasn't enjoyed most clubs so far (too gaudy, too closed/cramped in, etc), so I took a girlfriend of ours to The Arena on Saturday July 17, 2004. We were both very pleased and we'll be coming back soon. In fact, we were so pleased, my wife said she'll give this place a try and come with us next time (probably all 3 of us together). The Arena is a very large ranch-style home in an extremely nice and rather quiet neighborhood. It's got upscale decoration throughout, and soft music in two lounge rooms, but no dance floor. The lounges provide some small tables to speak privately, but it's not hard to scoot up and chat with other couples as well. The snacks and drinks were a little sparse (Pizza, Pretzels/Chips, Ice-Water) but you can bring your own alchohol, which is an excellent ice-breaker in this situation. The whole house was very clean, including the play rooms, which each had a different atmosphere/theme. There were condoms, tissues and trash cans in the rooms, with plenty of beds, clean linen etc, and a porn video in one of the rooms. There's also a very comfortable, private but social outside area where you can grab a smoke if you need it. Ashton and Mike were very graceful hosts and set a soft atmosphere that feels very safe for women. They handled the phone calls and door greetings well, so initial contact was very comfortable. There were about 20 couples there, ranging from about 25-45 (most of them looking about 27-33) and most of them very attractive. A nice variety of races and personal styles was evident... It's hard to imagine not finding a couple you could socialize or play with there. Everyone was well dressed, clean, polite, and very happy to interact. However the atmosphere is very subdued and somewhat separate, so you may have to make some fairly obvious and uninitiated approaches to people. It would be nice if there were even some extremely light social activities just to give people an excuse to meet each other, but that being said, the atmosphere is warm and friendly if you're willing to break the ice. Again, we enjoyed the experience and will be going back occasionally as a pleasant extension of our lifestyle. D&K (and sometimes S)

different strokes for different folks.

If the people are friendly & the environment is comfortable, we can enjoy ourselves anywhere. Each time we have been to the Arena, we have had a real cool time. We all have different interests with these parties, and each weekend presents different opportunities. It's all about going with someone who's fun, so you can enjoy eachother no matter what does or doesnt happen... If you like the dance club scene, no the arena is not a dance club. If you like a social scene, where you can get to know someone a bit, and then play... it's the perfect place. So many people are so quick to put a place down for unimportant details. What kind of parties are those people throwing I wonder???

the arena

we went and had a ok time also!!!! We were a little bit miss led thinking this place is a club when really it is a private house party!!! There was no dance floor and a general lack of mixers or ice for that matter! the place was really empty when we went! the host and hostess were super nice!! kinda a long drive for this party to not be up to expectations for us! s and j

Know what your in for

Read the review before this last one about the club sucked .. you should have checked out first what friday nights are all about for most couples it could have been ruined by single males thats why most people hookup with males that they already know away from a club so you don't feel the way you did. trust us my girl takes a long time to get comfortable and have a good time and everytime she has at the arena so it just was to much for you -couplein707

hi

love the arena the host are wonderful and the people are up there to. we went on slow nights the first after new years and the second after valentines and it was reeally laid back 1st time hooked up with a nice couple after talking for a while and had sfort swap which for our first experience was great then the second time we went mingled around and watch everyone talked with a couple of couples before deciding to call it a night on the way to the door meet this sweet girl who agreed after some conversation to join us in the room with the bed for a threesome it was great. Having only ever gone to the arena it is a top notch place for those who are looking to take things slow -Couplein707

Saturday 1/31

We have been going to the Arena's parties for about 6 months now. We consider ourselves pretty new to the scene, and find that all of our experiences at the Arena have made our attendance well worth our efforts. We prefer a place where we can casually mingle, flirt, and play or watch others. We can do this at the Arena. The place itself is a really great - but it's up to the people to make the party. We always go with an open mind, and let the night take us where it may. We never make our own fun, become the responsibility of others. We say, "dont let your environment create you, you create your environment." With that concept, we never fail to enjoy ourselves. We are really glad to have found a place that has introduced us to the lifestyle, and allowed us to grow with each other and our relationships along the way. It isnt something that we could have found on a night out to a fancy dinner, or movie...that's for sure. Thanks guys, for another evening of pleasure. We met a really awesome couple, again. See you soon.

Interesting, but strange...

My husband and I weren't really sure what to expect, this being our first time to a club of this nature. Let me start by saying that everyone is right, the hostess and her crew are wonderful. They are very accomodating and make you feel welcome. We felt very alienated while there. Everyone basically stuck with whomever they came with. I would suggest offering more tables with adult oriented games, something to bring people together. The buffet was funny, but I wasn't there to eat food ;-). All in all the atmosphere is great, but I think more could be done to bring people together and mingle. Oh and the place WAS very clean! Maybe it was just a bad night that we went. We may try again sometime. C&J

Another look

We wrote a review on this club a short while ago after we visited it on a Friday night. We werent sure whether or not we would return to the club or not. First, we didnt think that the owners would read these reviews, much less care about what 1 couple would think but, they did and they do. So, to this we say "outstanding!". Not only did they contact us about the situation we reported but they made the necessary adjustments to regain our business- we think for a long time to come. The experience we had last weekend was an amazing turn around from what we experienced before. The staff was very kind and really down to earth. We had a great time and encourage anyone who is still shopping around for a good club to visit to check the Arena out.

Respectful MEN/Singles

It was total joy to be in control of the sexual situations I found myself in at the Arena.The host spoke to the single men one time, and they were gentlemen.One would think on a singles nite for men,it would be a rowdy nite with perverts lurking & jerking all around.To our surprise the dudes where respectful.This allowed the females to take on as many guys as they wanted.A rainbow of CRAYOLAS to choose from,even some of those Jumbo crayons.Like in every box,some crayons were broken.Still they managed to get the art work done.So sharpen your crayons ,and go to the Arena for a colorful experience.For the 2 couples that helped get a room of guys off,while roleplaying a PORNO movie.THANKYOU,THANKYOU,THANKYOU.Our hats off for that director.This was so much FUN.Ladies you'll luv it at the Arena

10/02/03 - Saturday was incredible...

= ) We checked out the new place last Saturday, and found it to be so inviting. It is set up to encourage socializing, and the lounges provide plenty of space to mingle. The play areas are all nicely decorated, and clean!!! The crowd was made up of friendly guests, and the hosts make you feel safe & welcome. This place isnt for everyone - - only for those who prefer a classy intimate environment, with sociable adults, who have a positive attitude, and want to explore the lifestyle in good taste. Whether you are a voyer or an exhibitionist...Come to play, and play to come...

Lost it's appeal

We made a recent visit to the new East Bay location on a Friday night. Having visited once before and enjoying it we returned to a very disapointing evening. I think some of it had to do with it being a Friday night. Had there been more couples it might just have been ok. There was no music in the play area. It must have been 95 in the house with no vents. With this all said, the host and hostess were great, the house was very nice and in a good neighborhood. Will not return.

The New Improved Arena 9/27/03

We had to go see for ourselves.The bad & negative reviews of the Arena are not fair to its present splendor.The hosts are extremely warm and welcoming to all. They cater to you in any fashion. The new house is gorgeous. With its bigger and more beautifully decorated bathrooms and lounge areas it gives such an intimate atmosphere. There are more rooms for people to party in. For all those that want to really let their hair down with other down to earth and attractive people, this is definitely the place to go. It's a place where people know youur name, and are always glad you CAME. Like Norm on the show Cheers. If you are a single woman looking to have some fun with no pressure and feel safe this is the place for you. You can go at your own pace and pick who you want and what you want. Thank you to all the staff there that make this a secure setting for all of us to express ourselves freely and with no inhibitions. TWO THUMBS UP FOR THE HOSTS !!!!!!

1st time

We went there on Sat the 9th, found it interesting, although the music sucked (Rap) lots of people having a good time age groups 20's 30's 40's probably will try another spot in Reno before returning.

Looking forward to the new place

We were there about a year ago. The hosts were very friendly. People were mostly dressed in street clothes at first. They were a polite, slightly younger crowd. As the other posts noted, the makeshift rooms were a little off-putting. Our biggest complaint was probably the lack of condoms and lubes. We have always seen them at the other clubs we went to, so we didn't bring any. Supplying them seems like the responsible thing to do. We'll definitely give the new place a try.

The Arena Great Party !!!

My hubby and me checked out The Arena a few weeks ago and had the time of our lives. There were about 40 couples and many good lookig ones. The hosts are simply great and the house was beautiful. I heard a rumor that they are soon to change locations to a bigger place with a bunch of new features. We will look forward to that. Thanks Ashton for a great Party!

Small place but fun

Went there over the Valentines day weekend and had a good time. The place seemed a little on the small side but that may have been because there were about 50 couples there. So, it was hot inside, there was not enough room in the hot tub (couples were asked not to spend too much time in it because others wanted to use it) and the dance area was packed. We were put off a little by the garage play area, just seemed a bit dirty to us. The other group play areas were nicely decorated and we like the idea of the semi-private play areas but they were always occupied. Overall we had a good time, but the main problem was that it was too crowded. We may try again on an evening when there is not a special occassion happening.

The Arena

Had a great time, the one time we attended. The vibe is fine, mellow, hot, and up. Ashton and Mike are perfect hosts. Keep hearing good things about Lush and Elegant Rapture but for us two it would be real hard for us to beat our time at the Arena. As everyone says, its the people you spend time with at a place that matter. We met a great couple there, "I and T" they absorbed our attention ---so frankly, ---they- were it. Just that the enviornment was very supportive of great fun!And great praises are due any place where things click.

Arena Review

We attended the Arena Saturday the 9th. It was our first visit. The directions were very good and the neighborhood is in a nice part of town. Upon arrival we were met by the hostess a very nice and funny young lady. We were the first to arrive and were followed by several couples. Our hostess gave us a tour of the house. All of the rooms were clean and inviting. Things started to roll when we got on the dance floor. There were not a lot of guest but the ones that were there were verrry friendly. We would attend again, maybe when the weather is better...might bring out more people.

Arena Rocks

Catering to a younger crowd and hosted by two of the most down to earth people you could ever want to meet, the arena is by far the best club in the east bay greater area. Very low-no pressure but with ample space to get to know each other, the back yard is buetiful and so are the attendee's. The hot tub is a delight and the hosts go out of their way to ensure all are having a good time---See you there--J&C
