RIVA SUPPER LOUNGE 84 College, 416-588-7377 Rating: NNNNN
Riva is a swanky lounge that changes at night into a mini-club. The front room feels like a bar/restaurant, while the back is full of booths and has a lounge vibe. Musically, expect house and electro played for a well-heeled crowd that's ready to party.
This spot was most recently known as 65 Degrees, and before that it was Brasserie Aix. If you look closely, you may recognize a few details, but overall it's a very different bar.
Domestic beer is not on offer, and a standard mixed drink will run you $7. The booths are bottle-service-only, so be prepared to make reservations and drop some coin if you want to sit near the action.
CAN YOU DANCE?
Although it's small, the back room sees its share of dancing on weekends. A decent sound system provides pumping bass, and that means ass-shaking.
