Ciao Edie Roxxx 489 College, 416-927-7774 Rating: NNNNN
VIBE A tiny little basement bar on the College strip, decorated with a 60s kitsch feel. There's a small stage where you can see live acts, along with DJs playing rock music most nights. Sundays still feature Here Kitty Kitty, the longest-running dyke night in the city.
PAST LIVES You probably remember this spot as Ciao Edie, which used to be more lounge-themed. The same owners have since built the stage, modified the name and are now more rock-focused.
VALUE Generally, there's no cover, and a bottle of domestic beer sets you back $4.75, which isn't dirt cheap but is in line with the rest of the area.
LINEUP The lack of a cover means there's rarely a lineup, but the capacity is small, so you may want to get there early if there's an act you're set on seeing.
