CHOCOLATE LOUNGE 193 king east, 416-703-9888
VIBE It's a restaurant and lounge most nights, but on the weekends the tables get pushed back and Chocolate transforms itself into a small nightclub. The area's not known for its nightlife, but more small lounges and clubs have opened in the last few years. Saturdays are an upscale urban night; Fridays play to a bit more of a mixed crowd and feature some house along with hiphop, R&B and old school.
VALUE The club's on the slightly upscale end. There's a cover on weekends (around $10), and the drinks aren't cheap.
BATHROOMS Institutional but clean and functional. Big enough even on a busy night. A washroom attendant is occasionally on duty.
LINEUP During peak times you may encounter queues. Note that searches are relatively detailed and there is a vague style code.
