Club and Event Previews and Reviews

Fluid – July 20th, 2006

This review is about the new and improved Thursday night that they have going @ Fluid called Candyland.  Carlos Promo is back and doing this R&B, hip-hop, and reggae night.  Fluid Thursday’s is the longest running Thursday night in Toronto.
We have not gone to Fluid in about a year.  They apparently did a reincarnation around the Christmas holiday and now they are back. I have to say that I am not impressed with the new set up. It looks almost like it did a year ago, except for some hanging glass dew drops from the ceiling in the main room. I can’t figure out what other changes they made, but the place needs a little… je ne sai quoi.

Getting in was easy enough. “Edwin” was gracious enough to put us on his VIP guestlist. We got there around midnight, and walked in to the lounge area of Fluid and saw about 10 people. Hmmm, we thought, this Candyland night is just getting off the ground. We had some drinks by the bar, said hi to some people, and chilled out to the old school r&b vibes. There was nothing happening in the lounge area that really made me want to get my groove on.

We then strolled over to the main room. The sound system was much better, and there were more people present, but standing away from the dance floor. The crowd was a mix of trendy younger individuals interspersed with 40’ish males (in last year’s get ups). Strange brew. We dance for a few jams, but the crowd was a hard sell, and only about 8 people, including us felt like dancing. Come on people it’s a club, if your not talking, you should be dancing!

Overall, the strength of the music was not enough to keep us in Fluid, and we left to go to Dream nightclub across the street at around one o’clock.

We just may go back for the music, but the crowd needs a lesson in “letting go”.

Scale of 0-10 (10 being the best)
Music – 8 People – 5 Ambiance – 61/2 Love factor – 6
