720 King West, 416-203-2883 Rating: NNNNN
VIBE A small restaurant/bar, and as the name suggests, pretty luxurious. Well, luxurious in a modern reworking of 70s kitsch kind of way. Photo murals, smoked mirror walls, a fake fireplace, space-age chairs and a large mobile are just some of the vintage references in the design. DJs play mainly house music after dinner Thursday through Saturday, and the occasional special event.
PAST LIVES Known as Loft until Charles Khabouth (Guvernment, Ultra, This Is London among others) took it over a few months ago and gave it a makeover.
DANCING OR LOUNGING It's mainly a lounge, but the tables do get pushed out of the way on busier nights for some impromptu dance-floor action.
BATHROOMS The guys' washroom looked pretty damn swank, which bodes well for the women's facilities.
