Rockwood – Oct 18th, 2006

31 Mercer Street

We had gone to the opening of Rockwood (formerly Bauhaus’ 2nd floor) a few weeks before and you could still smell the paint.  Not this time.  Rockwood has become emboldened and mature.   The place is small, yet that is part of it’s charm.  Rich, hardwood floors, expensive furniture, and attention to detail is what sets the club apart and at the same time puts it in the same class as say, Ultra, Eight Below, and Lobby.  The crowd, on the other hand blows the above mentioned places out of the water.  The people that came to Rockwood that night came to dance, and dance they did…to the sounds of Jo Jo Flores.  In case you haven’t heard Jo Jo Flores is a Canadian house music DJ that has been on the scene for quite some time and is well-loved at home and abroad. 

Rockwood is the perfect venue to get your lounge on, your groove on, and your conversation on.   The building that houses Rockwood is also home to the rooftop entity called Grass, and a street level club that is set to open in November of this year.   Going to 31 Mercer Street will take on a whole new meaning after the renovations are finally completed.

Scale of 0-10 (10 being the best)
Music – 9 People – 81/2 Ambiance – 91/2 Love factor – 81/2
