In The Mood 471 Richmond West, 647-436-8975 Rating: NNNNN
VIBE This small restaurant and lounge features live music most nights, including soul, jazz and Latin, as well as the occasional DJ playing hiphop, soul and R&B. The mood is mellow and intimate, and the lights are low enough to make everyone look a touch better than normal. The restaurant serves food until late.
PAST LIVES This spot was last known as Room 471, and the layout is fairly similar. The mood is warmer and more romantic, less slick and modern than its former incarnation.
VALUE A generic bottle of imported beer is $7, so be prepared to drop some coin if you're staying long.
DANCING OR CHILLING The tiny space doesn't really have a dedicated dance floor, but patrons seem to feel comfortable dancing wherever they're standing when the urge strikes.
