Ha ha. I know it's reactionary and I'm stereotyping, but clubgoers are such fucking louts and the club district itself is so full of gorgeous warehouse architecture that I, too, applaud the demise of every club in the area.I, for one, am looking forward to the demolition of these clubs. I won't miss the idiot hordes of slick-haired, tight pink shirt wearing, glowing purple honda civic driving ginos from Brampton and Scarborough that roam these streets at night, thinking they're the shit for acting like maroons in the "big city."
They can build their clubs in their own neighbourhoods and start street fights there, instead of holding our cops hostage every weekend.
I'm a clubber, I don't drink in clubs because that's a waste of money. I go to dance to beats that I like listening to. There are a couple of decent 90's dance clubs left on King st which I hope never leave.I've never been a 'clubber' either - I just dont see the point...
Why would I first pay money for alcohol to pre-drink, pay for a cab down there, pay my cover, pay for coat check and then pay 6$ for a f--king Canadian - all to the insipid 'beat' of music which I would never myself listen to.
What a great night in the making!
Now take a place like The Montreal Bistro - there was a truly great experience. I often lament its loss and hope The Rex doesn't befall the same mysterious fate.
