EL CONVENTO RICO 750 College, 416-588-7800 Rating: NNNNN
VIBE A long-running gay Latin club far away from Church Street, with drag shows every weekend. It has attracted a significant straight audience over the years as well, so it's one of the only genuinely mixed bars in town. The decor is very 80s, and the DJ plays a mix of Latin dance pop and commercial house. A Toronto institution.
VALUE There is a cover charge, but it's generally less then $10. Drinks are priced in the average range.
BATHROOMS Considering how long the place has been around, the washrooms are holding up OK. Functional and big enough, and although not exactly spotless, they aren't filthy either.
LINEUP You might find yourself in a short lineup of people paying the cover, but it's not usually anything you have to worry about.
