Since I'm not into night time stuff much, I can only go by the brochure which advertises "No Theme - No Attitude - Just Bar"
Dress Code: Description from a review:

Terrible experience, other than the Octoberfest beer prices. This place is so cliche. If I want to see girls dancing and making out on the bar, then I will go to a strip club. The place is filthy, and the decor is tacky. Anyplace that serves martinis in a plastic cup has some serious issues.

I have never been to this place, but I think it contributes to the noise in Waterside on weekends.

"Doors Open at 7:00 pm Daily. Tuesday is College Night... when the younger crowd comes to dance to Current and '90s Music, and Thursday is Ladies Night. Cover Charge begins at 7:00 pm Tuesdays... 9:00 pm Friday and Saturday. "
Club Soda is truly a great little restraunt in downtown Norfolk for Drinks esp. Martini's and Excellent food with a great staff and greatest bar tenders in the world. They also have downstairs bar for parties and other events.....For large groups would recommend making reservations.
Great place to eat and have drinks before the Opera or other shows in the Area.

Dress Code: casual dress; Business Casual no ball caps
The best little tapas spot for yummy food and martini's. Their menu is ever changing so you won't ever get bored of the same food. I love the decor and the atmosphere. It's a small but great place to meet friends or go on a date. you don't have to be dressed up to get in nor do you feel uncomfortable due to the attire of the staff. (the women have sexy yet non-slutty clothes on and the men are stylish.) i personally like to go there to start out an evening before a concert at the Norva or finish the evening with a sweet treat.
Dress Code: wear what you want.
This is a simple martini bar, conviently located near MacArthur Center downtown. Look for it, the bartender was not only beautiful, but she could mix an excellent drink. We tried about 1/2 dozen martinis liked almost all of them, luckily our hotel was directly across the street.
Dress Code: Business casual
If you have money, downtown is the place. Either the Waterside mall, or any numerous clubs along Granby st. When you get bored with that, go to Portsmith via HRT ferry, ($.75) and check out their wide variety of clubs.
My favorite hangout is Backstage Cafe, for it's music, atmosphere, and leather couches. Lots of snobby people, though.
Dress Code: I've run around in a t-shirt and blue jeans, though people tend to sneer less and you get better service if you dress in slacks and a nice shirt.
This place apparently has two pianos and they do requests and jokes.
I have not been, but it has all very good reviews on the Hampton Roads web site.
