I like this place. It sorta has a gentleman's club feel to it. Big chairs with dark wood paneling. Now there are reasons I should hate this place. First off, we went on a Sunday and there were nothing but Asian people in there. I am Asian myself but I hate partying somewhere where there are only Asians. I like a mix. Second, the drinks are mad expensive. For three shots of Grey Goose and four Jager Bombs, I think the tab came to about $100. Atlhough this is not that crazy for partying in the City. Third the patio is way too small. It could fit about five people max. Where are all the smokers supposed to go? The place I love about this place though is the downstairs. There is a dance floor down there that kinda reminds me of a cave. It is a bit small but the music is good and people just don't care.

The outside of this place looks like a warehouse but the inside is romantic, luxurious, and a lot of space (surprisingly). Finally got in here on a weeknight via promoter connections and I can see what the hype is about. The entry way is a large open courtyard area with a fire pit and small bar. The next room is a spacious hall with lots of seating, couches, cushioned benches, and extravagant decor everywhere. Velvet curtain drapes, a giant chandelier, and dj spinning. The next room has even more space with a large bar area with a full wall of alcohol. If it wasn't for the $14 mixed drinks, this place would have gotten a 5-star rating.

From the moment I stepped in, I already felt at home. I was at ease and comfortable - what kind of venue can do that to a person?! My boyfriend and I watched Sondre Lerche perform there last weekend. With general admission, we were able to get front row seats from coming early. How sweet is that?! I was the happiest girl in the world. The thing that I realized after the show was that... there are no bad seats in this venue. Everyone has a clear view of the stage, from every angle. I really loved the intimacy of this place. I mean, where else can you talk and walk alongside the performing artists after (and before!) the show? I would definitely come back and watch more artists that perform here. Tickets aren't expensive either. Cafe du Nord, you are the shit!
