Maro – Oct 18th & 19th, 2006

135 Liberty Street

Off the beaten path, and far away from clubland, on a road that screams of eclecticism, lies Maro, the only club/restaurant on Liberty street.  We visited this recently opened place during Fashion Week and we were impressed with not only the decor, but with the turn out.

Maro is a large, well appointed large space with a lofty VIP section that allows you to see and be seen.  High ceilings prevent it from feeling cozy, even with the throngs of people present, but there is a glam factor to the place.  The main room was turned from a restaurant by day with table and chairs into a runway for Hibebe’s designs.   We took our time inspecting the two bars that served up various concoctions, or was it three bars?  We had free drink tickets but, we kept being directed to a mysterious bar at the end of the venue that we never did find. 

As I have already mentioned Maro was packed with industry people and party revelers alike who were there to see Hibebe’s line of clothing.  However the show was over an hour late in starting, and by that time our group had already lost interest.  We had our own party going in the VIP and things were feeling much better for us than for the rest of the people who would not budge from their places near the runway.  The sound system is decent enough, and so was the DJ, serving up a blend of house with hard rock as well!

Overall, the space has a lot of potential and we will have to go back again.

Rockwood – Oct 18th, 2006

31 Mercer Street

www.rockwoodclub.com

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.

TIFF 2006 Party Events – Sept 6th to Sept 11th, 2006

With the parties to attend to at night, and work the next day, who has time for watching movies!

Aside from Lobby on Wednesday, Ultra on Friday & Saturday, followed by Century Room until 4 in the morning here are the big parties we’ve been to so far…

Sept 7th, 2006

Director Sophie Fiennes (left) kicked off TIFF on Thursday with the North American premiere screening of her film, The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, to a packed house at the ROM on Thursday. The three-part film features the witty and insightful Slavoj Žižek discussing everything from sexuality in the works of Lynch, Kubrick and Hitchcock.

The Pervert’s Guide party was hosted by Jie Matar from Salon Jie across the street at the very modern Gardiner Museum. The red carpeted entrance was a hit, and so was the eye-catching blue woman on stilts! This place was the perfect venue for an afterparty filled with TIFF revellers. The only downfall was the awfully bright lighting inside on all three (or was it four levels) and the woefully understaffed bar. All the beautiful people seemed to be as impressed with the ceramic art work of the Gardiner as we were. Perhaps the bright lighting was to ward off thieves…hehehe. We solved the bar problem by going up to the very top level into the VIP. In the VIP room the drinks were free, but they ran out of glasses for what seemed like ages. The balcony off the VIP room was massive, and designed into an L shape that held at least a hundred people on it.

We went to star gaze, but ended up mingling in a packed room full of very important somebodies, who gave good face, and attitude. The music was also very uptempo, soulful house, and was pleasing to our ears. A big shout out to the event organizers, and the awesome DJ.

Sept 10th, 2006

We attended The One X One Party at the Carlu, $1,500-a-plate event was star-studded fundraiser for global childrens’ charities. Although we arrived at the Carlu well after performances by Chantal Kreviazuk, John Legend, and Wyclef Jean, we did manage to actually see John Legend leaving, and uhh.. the Canadian Idol judges, one of whom was the memorable Farley Flex. We also heard that during the earlier part of the night, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt were in attendance as auctioneers for the event.

The alcohol was free and flowed non-stop however, it still could not make the event less dull than it was. The Canadian artists who were left behind to entertain the crowd well past midnight, were not enough to keep us from leaving.
