Helen S, London - United Kingdom - on 20/7/12
For the latest in our series of guides to cool cities, we asked Turbo signings and Toronto natives Gingy & Bordello to take us on a tour of their home. Favourites of Erol Alkan, Nina Kraviz and Martyn, the pair know a thing or two about what makes a party and have just released 'Iron & Water' EP, so take their advice and head to the joints below if you're looking for some fun times.
Bicycle repair shop by day. Cinema by evening. Anything goes by night. The eccentric owner of this spot is really cool and easy to work with, down to let a raucous party spread its wings and become something magical. The narrow brick walled space holds up to 200 people and is an optimal loft party space.
Not sure if this place is still even in operation but we'll include it for posterity. Also known as "The Toaster" or "Space Lunchbox" for the red lights and aluminum foiled walls, this after-hours spot has one of the best lighting rigs I've ever seen. A bit shady and not the easiest to find (like most good after-hours spots).
One of Toronto's staple venues. Pretty much every out of town act has played here at some point in the last 5 years. Owner Nav Sangha aka "Nasty Nav" runs a tight ship, and when he cracks open some tequila from his "supply", it's bound to be a great night.
Easily one of our favourite restaurants in the city. Our friends own this spot, and it's consistently named one of the city's best new restaurants by critics and foodies alike. Nothing here is pedestrian. Everything is delicious. Seasonal and local ingredients add to the appeal.
