471 Richmond West, 416-703-6239
VIBE A small, fancy cocktail lounge, just a bit west of Spadina where a well-dressed, upscale crowd gathers for drinks. The kitchen stays open until 5 am Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. There's a DJ booth in the corner, generally playing some variation of house, but you don't see much dancing.
VALUE Not a good place for people on a budget - unless your budget allows for high-priced bottle service and fancy food. For what it is, though, the food isn't overpriced.
BATHROOMS As you'd expect from the rest of the place - well kept and decent looking.
LINEUP The capacity isn't very large, so if you pop by on a busy night you might find yourself waiting. Keep in mind that the crowd standing outside is probably smoking, not standing in line.
