what "other" clubs do you go to?

The favourites are obvious...System, Tonic, Turbo etc.

But what *other* clubs are out there, that you think are good? What do you go to that's a little different from your usual fare, but that you really enjoy?

I usually go to goth/industrial nights, the odd Resistor and the odd Darkrave. I just went to Blow Up for the first time, at the Dance Cave. It's britpop/"mod"/70s rock and punk/motown/soul. It was so much fun! I listen to a lot of British, and British-sounding music, like Radiohead and the Strokes, as well as the classics like David Bowie. I don't listen to motown/soul but it was way fun to dance to. We went to the "mod" night at Revival on College once (run by Mark Holmes from Platinum Blonde). Great music, but it was packed to the point of claustrophobia and the crowd was more of a "girls in tiny sequined shirts and tight pants" crowd, which I'm not into. The Dance Cave was more jeans and hoodies. :) I'm definitely going back.

And please, no mention of Whisky Saigon, the Joker and the like *puke*

Hamilton: Casbah, Rude Native, Fever, Hudson

Toronto: Roxy Blu, Una Mas, IT, IV Lounge, etc.

Montreal: Luba Lounge, Blizzarts, Blue Dog, Jello, Laika, Stereo Bar, Angel's, Sugar, and I'm about to start crying cuz I miss MTL too much

I like places where you can groove but find a place to chill too.

Jelo Bar rules the day.
I love that place. Such a good vibe, super cool surroundings, and wicked live music. And lots of delicious women.

Montreal - 1 word - SONA ... Wowee!! that is a fun, fun, fun place to be.

Toronto - Gypsy, Element & (I agree with you Jen) Blow-Up at the Dance Cave (but only once in a while when you're craving something different (especially if you're into old funk) ... 2 weeks in a row & I really start missing System music ...) What's great is System on Friday, followed by Blow-Up on Saturday ..... everybody's happy. ;)

As a sidenote, I've just got to ask ... what's the crowd like at It?? Just curious as to whether it's more relaxed or more upscale than a club like Element ...

Blow up at The Elmo, or uptstairs from the Elmo at least

Mod Club at Revival

Sunday nights at Velvet Underground w/ DJ Jurgen (I think)

Sunday Nights at Zoo Bar (now Zen Lounge) Best friend was DJ, 80's rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrretro

Darkraves @ Reverb (best one, about 2 years ago VNV Nation LIVE! and those funy fetish nights are hilarious)

The Weave - Every Weekend. The best fucking acid jazz ever, and soooo comfortable.

More of a bar, but The Bovine. Saw some live acts there before

Anarchists Cocktail: Not bad before it closed down
and of course

SANCTUARY!!!

Roxy Blu and Una Mas are two of my favourites as well.

I only go to system.
Really, it's got everything I need.
Why would anyone go anywhere else?
The atmosphere is such a wonderful shade of bland.

I'd say i liked the Feb 2000 Darkrave the best.. however that VNV Nation live performance was one of the best I saw that year.. definately up there with the Astral Projection and Infected Mushroom shows in montreal.

Right above Lee's Palace. Enter via Lee's main entrance.

Confession: I saw Andrew W. K. at Lee's last week. :)

Sometimes I frequent (contradiction in terms?):

* Fez
* Bohemian

in Montreal:

Blizzarts
Roy Bar
Jelo Lounge (Josh got me hooked on this place )
Go-Go Lounge
Stereo Bar (new friday night favourite)
Luba Lounge
Blue Dog (sweet sweet breaks on thursdays ;) )

And there's the obvious Sona, Stereo and Aria. Aria still wins for best lights and Stereo for best sound. But Sona is relocating so maybe it will be better

I was at IV about a month ago and it looked like Weave had closed down. Maybe they were doing renevations or something. Good times at the Wabi night there once upon a time though.

My Favs: NASA, IV, Fez (if you need someplace that everyone can enjoy), Green Room, Element, I like the Mockingbird space but I've only ever been for special events.
