Pulse Nightclub 338 Adelaide West, 416-599-2323 www.pulsenightclub.ca
VIBE Pulse is a new two-level club that goes late - until 8 am - Friday through Sunday. Most recently known as Powder, the venue hasn't changed that much. It features lots of smart lights, a loud but brutal sound system and too many black lights. The music is mainly trance, progressive and big-room house. Fridays feature hiphop, R&B and top 40 until 3 am, after which it's back to trance. Not too many people come out yet, and most of them stay glued to their seats.
VALUE Expect a fairly significant cover, especially considering the all-local lineup. Drinks aren't too pricey, though - $4.50 for a domestic beer.
BATHROOMS Functional, but very bright and institutional-looking.
LINEUP Queues have been known to form, thanks to the detailed searches at the door and the hefty cover that everyone tries to talk their way through.
