 Featured Restaurant - Chiado

Restaurant ReviewsOnce in your life you'll walk into a restaurant that will be the measuring stick for any other restaurant you visit for the rest of your life. Chiado is this restaurant. From the second you drive up, there is valet service if you want it, but plenty of parking along College St. if you like. As you walk in, the warmest fireplace is blasing on your left next to the complimentary coat check. The friendliest staff takes your coat/jacket and walks you to your table. If you are a seafood eficionado, you'll love the fish and seafood that is flown in from portugal the same day. I happened to have the skate on risotto that was unbelievably fresh and flavourable. My appetizer was tiger shrimp in piri piri sauce. These shrimps were the biggest Ive ever seen served this side of the atlantic. For drinks, there is no North American beverages served here, only Portuguese wine and beer... The waiter service out does any other restaurant in Toronto. Napkins folded on your lap, crumbs scraped from your table, it seems as though service to table is 1/1 ratio and you are very well attended to. Desert was courtesy Matthew Naranjo, one of the waiters there and was a plate of fruits and cheescake with berries and cream that Ive never seen anywhere near the presentation we received. Not sure if it was because I was there, or if they do this kind of service to everyone but it definitely had me floored. Without a doubt, Chiado is my number 1 restaurant in the city of Toronto. If you want to impress anyone, take them to Chiado. You wont be disappointed. Albino Silva is the artist and Chiado is the canvas... Richard D Torontolifestyle.com

 Level Opening First Week of July.

Nightclub ReviewsAny large dance club that opens these days needs to be able to boast about a state-of-the-art sound system and "intelligent lighting" in addition to the usual claims about numerous dance floors, bars and VIP areas. And, if you want to attract high rollers and ballers (professional or otherwise), the more upscale the decor, the better. For all the buzz about lounge seating, coat checks and espresso bars, Level won't disappoint the people who just want to come and dance until the wee hours of the morning. Watch for a July 7th Opening with B&A and Ryan B from Bounce on Friday nights.

 Blowfish Restaurant Review

Restaurant ReviewsThe King West strip needs another trendy resto-lounge like a fish needs a typewriter. Then again, there's always room for more "Are-You-Hot?" buff boys and bottle-blondes. But if you think Blowfish is just another hotspot for Toronto's beautiful people, you're wrong. For starters, the menu effortlessly fuses traditional Japanese ingredients with classical French and pan-Asian influences. For another, the room is considerably more intimate than its tony competitors.

 Tiesto-Just Be: CD review By: Mike H. Maturine.

CD ReviewsTiesto-Just Be: CD review By: Mike H. Maturine. The name is synonymous with trance music and his albums are no strangers to success, garnering numerous accolades in the dance music industry. So you would think that his music had reached its peak and could not get any better, well on his new album Just Be Tiesto shows fans the artist side of the world's no 1 DJ. Just Be proves to be a work of art for Tiesto who choose to make this new album from an artist proppective. Tracks like Love Comes Again featuring BT, proves to be a very powerful track trance tracks with BT's vocals has made it very popular on Just Be. Traffic, a harder trance track is also one of Tiesto's masterpieces. When I popped Just Be in the CD my player Traffic was the first one I went for, the song had sent me into an absolute frenzy. Now what makes this new album even more distinct than other work of Tiesto is Kirsty Hawkshaw's vocals which can be heard in Just be and Walking on Clouds. Just Be proves to be very melodic and incorporation of a superub vocalist like Hawkshaw and BT, Tiesto in truly versatile as an artist, DJ and producer.

 Smoking is now banned in Toronto's Bars and Nightclubs

Nightclub ReviewsSmoking is now banned in Toronto's Bars and Nightclubs. As of this passed weekend, All bars, billiard halls, bingo halls, casinos and racetracks must be smoke-free, except in a designated smoking room no larger than 25% of the public space (50% allowance for bingo halls). Many nightclubs in Toronto are already feeling the pinch as people approach the establishment, ask if they can smoke inside and turn around and look for the next venue when they are told they can't. Nightclubs without patios such as Fluid Lounge located in downtown Toronto have their work cut out for them as patrons choose to go to clubs with patios. Skybar, Therapy, Mink and Afterlife are enjoying an increase in attendance already seen after the first week.

 A Trip in Trance 3 CD Review by Mike H Maturine

A Trip in Trance 3 CD review By: Mike H. Maturine.
As a trance enthusiast I was delighted at the release of this CD which I was anticipating would match up to its predecessors. When I put in the first of this 2 CD compilation I was not the least bit surprised at the quality of the tracks. Even before you pop it in you can tell A Trip in Trance 3 is filled with some of the hard hitting trance beats that fill the clubs in Europe. The front cover highlight remixes by Ferry Corsten and Darren Tate which lets you know that you are about to embark on an experience in trance like no other.

 The Twilight Zone: How 80s Fashion has still captivated us in 2004 by Euroman

T.O.LifestyleFashion in the city has truly taken on a retro look with the kickboxing shoes as a prime example. Reebok, Puma and Miss Sixty are all capitalizing on this fashion frenzy and the demand seems to keep pouring in. I spoke to Willie, a Sales Associate at the Change Room on Queen Street about the kickboxing shoe style and why it is so popular. He mentioned that people wanted comfort but also with the boot look to it and that's why the kickboxing shoes made such a splash. What makes the style even so common is that people usually wear it with jeans and they tuck it inside the jeans, which is the in style for wearing kickboxing shoes. The grunge look is also a big fashion style now and bigger than before and trucker hats is a good addition to the look even though the entire trucker hat effect is somewhat played out.

 Who will be The Big Names Representing Dance Music at the 2004 Juno Awards?

Who will be The Big Names Representing Dance Music at the 2004 Juno Awards? by EuroMan.
So what does Sound Blunts and Hatiras have in common with each other? The answer would be 2003 and 2002 Juno Award winners for Best Dance Recording. Space Invader if you remember was a raga track turned house by Hatiras and sky rocketed world wide. Billie Jean the remake of the Michael Jackson classic won the award in 2003. The nominees for 2003 in this category must also be credited for their hard work and the great tracks which allowed them to be candidates. Original 3 which are one of the most talked about groups and their claim to fame was bolstered by Sunglasses at Night, the remake of the Corey Hart original. MC Mario, Grand Menage and Boomtang also made the nomination list.

 The Sunday Night Silence has been Broken Review by EuroMan.

The Sunday Night Silence has been Broken Review by EuroMan.
It was always believed that a Sunday night epitomizes that of silence and relaxation. A night that everyone stays home, lay back and get ready for another week on the job. That Ideology has long been thrown out the window and Sunday nights are now marked by clubs with long lineups and people not worrying one bit about working the day after. People would dare stay out until 3 or even 4 am with the intention of going to work for 9 am. Crazy you may call it but it is that growing trend in club culture that has clubs like Fluid Lounge becoming immensely popular on a Sunday night.
