C-Lounge Mondays are still happening…

If Cheval is not your cup of tea, go for the the less austere attitude of C-Lounge and let your hair down.  Remember this is Fashion Week in Toronto, so get on the guestlist, and arrive in time.  C-Lounge is guaranteed to be a long line up as the night goes on.

C Lounge – March 17th (Opening Party for L”Oreal Fashion Week)

456 Wellington St. @ Portland & Wellington St.


clounge.jpgsamantharonson.jpgnik_and_jo.jpgdancer_clounge.jpg

A “spa inspire bar” is what their website says. C Lounge has been around for a while now, and they are still doing well in a location that has a noise restriction after a certain time of night due to the residents living in the area. That’s what primarily annoys me about this place, the fact that I can never quite feel the music in bones, because of a shody sound system. We arrived after the Joe Fresh show at Nathan Phillips Square, and apparently missed some fashion installments that C lounge was partaking in. We were really there to see DJ Samantha Ronson, the gal pal of Lindsay Lohan, spin. She did not disappoint, and opened her set with Phil Collins “In the Air Tonight” mixed with Busta Rhyme’s “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See”. That set the tone and changed the whole mood of the club, which was until that point was pretty boring.

C Lounge as a venue offers nothing new. Having been there many times, it is fairly easy to get in, and the bouncers are always pleasant. The bathroom is a spa and pick up spot. You can get a massage, nails done, and so forth from the assistants that inhabit the large washroom area. Outdoors, the backyard pool vibe has turned into an ice ring for the winter. Various heaters placed at the end of beds with white furry coverings, lit up and heated up, the below zero atmosphere while smokers shivered, and huddled together to stay warm.

As for the inside of C Lounge, I really believe that it is need of a serious makeover. They are not on the level of Ultra in terms of quality furnishings and appointments. The bar counter areas, the sofas, and the dance floor, are in need of some TLC. The VIP locations are not well placed, and again that sound system, or lack of it…

Scale of 0-10 (10 being the best)
Music – 8 People – 7 Ambiance – 5 Love factor – 6
