The Music That Moves Us…download it free!

What do we listen to?  Anything that has a really good beat, something we can dance to.  Not techno, not hard rock, nothing that requires the ingestion of large amounts of drugs (or even small amounts) to appreciate.  A mix of rock, rap, hip/hop, house, a little reggae, and perhaps even small doses of soca infused into a hot set by a knowledgeable DJ can really move a crowd.  And if it moves the crowd, it will move us.  Our favorite DJ’s who play these fabulous sets are DJ AM (Adam Goldstein), Samantha Ronson, and Toronto’s very own Chris LaRoque.  At the end of the night if we still haven’t gotten enough of a musical fix, there is always the afterparty for all the beautiful people at RAW UNDERGROUND from 2a:m until 7:30a:m on a Friday or Saturday.  At RAW you can hear everything we are giving you on our free download.  Yes, download 24 of our favorite tracks for free here, while the link lasts.

Happy listening!

Why We Love Winter in Toronto…

Yes it gets cold in Toronto, but not colder than a New York winter, and certainly not as blustery cold as Chicago.  So with that in mind, the night life never ends for those willing to step out in their stylish best.

We love winter in Toronto because we get to wear fabulous looking coats, the following being prime examples.

Winter Coats 2008/2009

Flattering, warm enough, and practical for getting in and out of the car.

…and deliciously sexy shoes and boots that set off any outfit

Shoes and boots 2008/2009

Bring a couple pairs to the club, so that you can switch up when your feet start hurting!

…and of course they are all in your basic black! The only color for winter that matters.  These pieces are worth the money, because you will able to style and profile in them for several winters.

Muzik – Oct 21st, 2006

15 Saskatchewan Road

www.muzikclubs.com

Muzik has been built in the former Horticultural Building and boasts of new and innovative design while still retaining it’s 1907 demeanour. A venue located on the exhibition grounds that serves as a nightclub on Saturdays is an ambitious adventure. How is this space going to fare in the dead of winter? Even more of a feat is Muzik’s ability to draw so many youngish, trendy, and monied people to it’s mammoth realm.

We gained entry to Muzik after uncharacteristically standing in 9 degree Celsius weather for over 15 minutes. It was the Fashion Week closing night party, and we had arrived late. The lovely Kirstie, the “go to” girl for VIP tables, managed to guide us in after we had made her acquaintance.

The cost of admittance was $20.00. Muzik recommends that you pre-book a VIP area to have the best party experience. Once you are actually inside of the club proper, you can observe that there are many VIP areas, all with a view of the patrons who are not doing the VIP routine.

There were so many people at Muzik for this closing night party that it appeared as though it was packed to capacity. The place looked like there were at least two thousand people in there give or take a hundred. Ironically, the extremely high ceilings also gave it a look of empty expanse. The dance floor, or dance area in the middle of the room took a while to get to and that was for shuffling room only. The VIP areas in the back of the club felt like they were a different entity all together. They were exhausting to find, and then even more exhausting to try and enter one of the rooms to meet with a group of our friends. We were rejected by the goon assigned to “protect” the VIP area with the excuse that the area was” full”. Our friends pleaded with him to let us in, but to no avail.

We made our journey back to the front VIP area where we had some other friends. We got in there without a hitch. The view was also good to see those who were actually coming in the club, so that you could invite them up for a drink. Once situated, we were actually able to enjoy the fabulous garage house music emanating from the speakers. The sound system at Muzik is incredible. It would have to be for such a large space.

Later on a bouncer goon showed up to guard entry to our VIP area. A few tipsy people in our immediate area where using the club decorations for props, and the goon promptly grabbed them out of their hands. What was with the hired help? They were taking their jobs way too seriously.

We temporarily left our VIP area to check out the bar scene. Getting a drink in Muzik requires patience if you wait at one of the two well-appointed bars, it also typically requires a lot of money. As for the washroom situation for the girls, it’s not too bad with about 10 or so stalls. Nevertheless a line up persisted.

Overall, Muzik is a mature rave party experience in a more sophisticated setting. If that’s what you are looking for, then you will not be disappointed.

Scale of 0-10 (10 being the best)
Music – 8 People – 71/2 Ambiance – 8 Love factor – 7
