503 College (2nd floor), 416-323-3957
VIBE A small lounge with very tall ceilings above the restaurant Xacutti, owned by the same folks. Gorgeous interior - simple and minimal but lush and rich at the same time. A DJ booth behind the bar pumps out mellow funky tunes (house, disco, funk). The club's not really built for dancing, but a couple of people will sashay anyway.
VALUE There's no cover, and the drinks aren't nearly as expensive as the decor suggests. Not exactly cheap either, but this is College west of Bathurst.
LINEUP Unlikely, as there's no cover charge and Bird doesn't specialize in fancy guest DJs. In this neighbourhood, people just move on to the next bar when one becomes too crowded.
BATHROOMS Like the rest of the bar, small but well designed and maintained.
