332 Richmond West 416-371-8636 Rating: NNNNN
VIBE A mainstream three-room club in the heart of the entertainment district, Lot 332 is trying for the upscale end of the market with its ubiquitous bottle service and private booths. The music's mainly R&B and mainstream house, with a bit of hiphop here and there.
SPECIAL FEATURES There's a retractable roof over the main dance floor, which means you're allowed to smoke (until the law changes again). The front room is an enclosed smoking room, and the third room has garage doors connecting it to the main room, which means there aren't many places you can't smoke. Surprisingly, it's not as hazy as you'd think.
DANCING OR CHILLING On a busy night you'll find a few hundred people dancing. Comfortable seating abounds, but much of it is only accessible if you're dropping some coin on bottle service.
DOOR POLICY There is a dress code, so leave the sneakers and sports jerseys at home. If you don't like waiting in line, try phoning the club for a spot on the guest list ahead of time.
