VIBE Before its current incarnation, the site of Touch Lounge, another new club on King west of Spadina, was a Mitsubishi dealership, and it's kept many garage-style features. Not as high-end as most of the places in the area, but still fancier than the average pub.
SOUND + LIGHTS The sound system looks and sounds like it was an afterthought, and DJs are definitely not the priority at the moment. No club lighting except for a video projector.
DANCING OR CHILLING While there's lots of space for dancing, it's unlikely to get used much unless they invest in some sound and some DJs.
SPECIAL ATTRACTIONS There's a big licensed patio at the side, as well as a smaller one in front, ideal for people-watching. Pool tables, too.
