VOGUE 1032 Queen West, 416-414-9334 Rating: NNNNN
VIBE A brand new club just west of Ossington on Queen. A row of bottle-service booths lines one wall, while the other is taken up by a long bar. Expect DJ events on the weekends as well as a variety of stage shows with an erotic theme.
PAST LIVES Best known as the former home of goth bar the Vatikan, it was taken over a few months ago by the swingers' Club Wicked, who have installed themselves on the top floor and also behind Vogue. Little remains of earlier incarnations; black walls have been painted white, and everything looks a lot cleaner.
BATHROOMS Vatikan-goers will be happy to know the bathrooms are in much better shape, but they're now one unisex washroom with a row of stalls. If you're trying to figure out how to lock the stall door, look up. (It took us a few minutes to figure it out, too.)
CAN YOU DANCE? The booths don't take up too much dance-floor space, and the sound system will be beefed up shortly, so expect some sweaty bodies shaking their asses.
