UNIT 1198 Queen West, 416-537-6646 Rating: NNNNN
VIBE This brand new Parkdale bar steps away from the Gladstone Hotel uses found objects for its great decoration, giving the place a modest but stylish sensibility. The mishmash of forgotten bits of the past creates an oddly timeless feel - neither retro nor contemporary. Currently open Thursdays to Saturdays. Expect a revolving cast of DJs.
VALUE There's generally no cover charge, and most drinks run you $6, which means some beverages are more expensive than normal while others are cheaper than expected.
WASHROOMS As throughout the rest of the bar, re-appropriated vintage fixtures give the bathrooms a unique look, and given the size of the bar there are a lot of washrooms.
CAN YOU DANCE? It's definitely more of a bar than a dance club, so it's not the best spot to find heavy dance-floor action. However, depending on the night, you might be able to get away with some booty shaking without feeling out of place.
