Club Reports: Irish Shanon's, Peek Downtown, Native Social Bar, Vinyl Arts Bar

We began our Friday night at the grand opening of Irish Shannon's Local Pub!
Where Killian McAuliffe O'Gribbin was the door host!
Did someone say, "OPEN BAR"?
What a way to draw a crowd!
The live band "Stereo FM" was playing Light Rock hits!
Irish Shannon's is located on Church Street where Dubliner Irish Social House used to be which in turn is where the popular dance club Antigua used to be!
Headed next over to Peek Downtown to see what was going on.
DJ Fobia was in the booth playing House.
The bar was starting to see some activity at this early hour.
The dance floor wasn't.  Should be more crowded tonight at DJ Wes Smith (CDN) will be here with his "Game on Tour" show along Jefferson Funk (USA) and more!
Back to Church Street and Native Social Bar.
Playing downstairs, this DJ trio was on early including Shane McCarron & Chris Brown.
Just a small crowd in the club though!
DJ Chris Garcia (E) came on at 12:30AM.
And he played a wonderful House / Deep House set!
But an embarrassingly small turnout dancing for this world class DJ.
Garcia is based in Las Vegas where he plays clubs such as Light, Turmeric, Embassy & Drai's Beach.
Great music though!
Final stop, Vinyl Arts Bar.
DJ D-Unity (CDN) taking over the reins from DJ Renzo Ruiz (USA).
The Toronto-based DJ had played here at VAB last August.
The room was packed!
He had the entire club bouncing!
His show last night was completely on the House side compared to prior shows of his I've been to where he was more Techno.
Spotted in VIP: DJ Carlos Mendoza
Located in an old house, Vinyl Arts Bar is located on Colonial Drive between Orange & Magnolia and it's become quite the home for touring international DJ's!
A good time was had by all!
