The Murder of Crows -- Main Floor -- Albuquerque

 A strobe as well as numerous spotlights are available to provide suitable lighting depending on just what type of music is currently playing. The walls are painted in a deep royal purple that matches the plush carpeting on the floor that provides pathways over and around the tiles of black marble. Loud dance music and yelled bursts of conversation increase in volume as one steps deeper into the large room.

 The majority of the tables are placed on the left half of the room with a smaller number spotted around the perimeter. There is a long bar along the left wall and along the right wall is a window where the food is picked up to be delivered to customers. Offset to the left of center of the club sits a large circular bar. Suspended from the ceiling above it is a sturdy oaken frame holding glasses. The dance floor takes up most of the right side of the room and is usually filled to capacity with dancing bodies.

The bar in the center:

Just to the left of center of the room, this large circular bar is always busy. Glasses hang from the rack that descends from the ceiling and bottles are placed on various shelves.

A small table:
This small table is surrounded by just a few chairs. There's little to draw attention to it.

The large oval "collage" table:
The surface of this large oval table is covered with a glued-on collage of postcards, posters, and photographs. People have written their own messages over the various postcards. No postcard depicting Albuquerque's tourist attractions has been spared this treatment. The management seems to have lacquered the table and kept the motif going, without allowing further defacing.

The bar on the right:
The bar to the right of the room seems to be the place to just sit. Most people here never seem to leave to dance and just consume the liquid that is placed in front of them.

The round table by the dance floor:
Thirsty people taking a break from shaking their booty on the dance floor tend to populate this round table, leaving spilled liquid of all kinds around the area. Occasionally, a really inspired dancer will blindly slam into the table and send it crashing. Much to the dismay of whoever seems to sit there.

The trendy square table by the door:
It's hip to be square, the story goes. This particular table seems to attract all the trendy Goth types. It might be the wrought-iron latticework on the table and chairs or just the fact that it is close enough to the door to allow for a quick stop before getting swept up into the dancing.

The bar on the left:
This bar is surrounded by a cluster of bar stools upholstered in black leather. The bar serves as a way station between the dancing mob and the main bar.

The romantic table in the corner:
This romantic table is meant for two, and barely leaves room for that. Placed under the stairs that lead up, it allows for a view of the whole room except for those heading up the stairs themselves and the door.

A private table in the back:
This private table in the back of the room is tucked back away from most of the noise and busy bodies on the dance floor. The table is positioned just right so as to afford a view of everyone that enters. A card placed in the center labels it as "Reserved".

The Security:

Placed in front of the door is a metal detector set up so it is impossible to enter without passing through it. One large security guard is stationed by the door to make sure there are no problems and supervise things. He has a portable scanner to use as well in the case of keys or something else triggering the detector. No one will be allowed in carrying a weapon except law enforcement officers with proper ID. There is one bouncer by each bar and one bouncer at the base of the stairs. Four bouncers mill around the establishment at any given time. There are also security cameras in plain sight able to cover the entire club. Anyone wishing to start trouble or smuggle a weapon in can contact staff. Non-metal weapons will obviously not set off the detector.

A note about weapons: There's no actual code checking inventory and preventing anyone from coming in with a gun, knife, etc. so please police yourselves. Thanks.

Upstairs Information:
The stairs leading up are roped off with one of those thick velvet ropes. A bouncer would politely stop anyone from going up, explaining it is for private parties or invited guests only. If you wish to rent the party room for a prom, graduation, sweet sixteen or other function, please contact the club's staff.

The Bouncers:
Bouncers are all around the room, dressed in black jeans, and black shirts. The front left breast holds white writing that states "STAFF", the back of the shirts have a bright white moon with a black crow in it. The men will NOT hesitate to throw someone out for getting frisky with staff, or if an argument breaks out. They will not allow fighting, scuffling, or any sort of "domestic dispute" to happen here. Thank you.

The Bartenders and Waitstaff:
They all wear black jeans, and royal purple t-shirts. The left front breast holds white lettering stating "STAFF". The back holds a bright white moon, with a black crow in it. There are three bartenders and anywhere from 3-5 waitstaff to get drinks delivered to the tables.

Legal Information:
The staff here have been instructed to fully cooperate with the police. The bartenders -will not- sell drinks to minors. The staff is generally pleasant when possible, polite but firm when they must. If they must, they will call the police to have someone removed from the premises. They will also call the police if they witness any laws being broken. This includes drug use. Please contact staff if you want to try anything unusual. In all other cases, you are welcome to pose staff as acting appropriately for their position.

Weekly Schedule:
The music played on a regular basis is typical -dance- music. One can request a song, but no mosh pits will be allowed. If one begins to encourage a mosh type atmosphere it is safe to assume that the bouncers break it up. There are certain nights of the week set aside for "themes" these run from 5pm to 1 am and are the following:

Mondays: Techno - Half price sodas with UNM ID
Wednesdays: Swing/Big Band - $1.00 off wings all night
Thursdays: Classic Rock
Sundays: Jazz
