1279 Queen West, 416-533-5922 Rating: NNNNN
VIBE A restaurant by day and small club by night, Dragonfly features house DJs most of the time, and sporadic special events. The back half of the room is mainly booths; the front half, where the bar is located, is more open but has a few corners to lounge in.
PAST LIVES This spot has undergone several name and owner changes over the past few years. It went from After Dark to B-Sweet to Dragonfly, then closed down, changed owners, renovated and recently reopened as Dragonfly. The current management was also behind the Living Room, and more recently Hush nightclub, but this venture is more restaurant-oriented.
SOUND & LIGHTS There's no huge, thumping sound system or seizure-inducing lighting. The vibe is more loungey than clubby.
CAN I DANCE? It's not really set up as a dance club, but it wouldn't be unheard of for people to cut a rug, depending on the night.
