CRYSTAL 09 NEW YEARS EVE AT THE ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM

NEW YEAR’S EVE FALLS ON A WEDNESDAY THIS YEAR AND IT’S
TIME TO CHOOSE YOUR PARTY DESTINATION…

Guaranteed to be a unique New Year’s experience. Plan ahead, plan early, and purchase
your
Royal Ontario Museum New Years tickets ASAP to ensure entry.  This party promises
to have a more mature, “sophisticated”, and stylish party crowd.  It will be where the
Rockwood Monday’s, Lobby Wednesday’s, Ultra Friday’s, and This is London Saturday’s
crowd go to ring in their New Year.
This event will sell out, as will many of the NY Eve parties W4W Toronto will recommend.
Don’t be a last minute girl and then get stuck partying with the lackluster bar crowds.  They
don’t know how to dress, or dance and you’ll bring in the New Year with some schlep talking
your ear off.

Music: Classics, House, R&B

Rockwood Nightclub – Feb 4th, 2008

31 Mercer Street

www.rockwoodclub.com

We actually attended Rockwood when they first opened in mid 2006 (read our Oct 18th, 2006 review) and had partied there several times enjoying the newness and otherness of the rich decor, lovely beats, and so forth.

A recent “Martini Monday” night visit has made us wonder what the hell happened? Martini Mondays are now called MashUp Mondays, and feature hip-hop, rock, r&b, all mixed together. Promoted by Kleenmedia, but attended by a “mashup” of people.

Not the vibe we know and like. Just over a year later, and the place looks run down. Mind you I haven’t been back in town long enough to actually know if the last 4 months were really “happening”, but from all accounts the first floor “Rock” has never actually opened to the general dance public, the second floor “Wood” is the only place the party stays, and the roof-top is for smokers who like to roast by heat lamps.

Officially, Rockwood features 3 weekly events: “Mashup Mondays”, “The Ritual” Fridays, and “I Love Saturdays”. The crowd is supposed to be 21+ mature, and stylish. Stylish perhaps, mature not. Too many young model types here who are possibly just barely of age to get into a club, and dudes old enough to be their father’s out past their bed time in Christian Audigier T Shirts.

I remember JoJo Flores turning this place out at least twice last year. Oh the memories. Rockwood as a venue needs some new life injected into it and fast, because it is stale already, and I hear the hotspot Atelier has taken up the slack.

Scale of 0-10 (10 being the best)
Music – 7 People – 4 Ambiance – 4 Love factor – 4
