OhSo Nightclub

Posted by Lee Van de Moesdyk / March 29, 2012

OhSo Nightclub opened just over two months ago at 137 Peter Street, a space that was formerly home to Reign (and before that, Budo). Most of the decor in this place leads me to believe that I'm inside Reign 1.5; black couches in red and wallpapered booths (respectively) and a stone-tiled backsplash behind the main bar. But the best part of any nightclub that has ever called this place home is undoubtedly the rooftop patio.

OhSo's website alludes to Over 20 Multi Level VIP Booths but all I see as I make my way around the club are single-level ones situated throughout the building's two interior floors and two-level rooftop patio. I'm not one to say "sorry for partying" (unless it's in a sarcastic tone), but I'm also not very easily impressed.

Nineteen year-old me loves this place; the bartenders are hot, the DJ pumps up the jams, and there's a stripper pole. But, unfortunately for me, I'm the better part of a decade beyond being my nineteen year-old self. Other people around me seem to be enjoying themselves, but the vast majority of them also seem to be between the ages of seventeen and twenty one.

I chose not to reserve a booth nor order the nightly bottle service special so I just walk around, slowly swigging my seven dollar beer. On this Saturday night the wood-walled patio is heated and packed...with approximately 75% of the club's patrons (because they sure aren't on the completely empty second floor). OhSo isn't a turrible nightclub, but it isn't a great one, either. I don't particularly hate anything about this place but it does nothing to stand out.

The best thing that OhSo does is be consistently mediocre, and hey, that's okay...for some people, in a certain time of their lives. For a place that charges up to $20 just to get in (free on guestlist before eleven on Fridays, and the same rule applies on Saturdays, but only for the ladies.), I expect a lot more than the same ol' Club District monotony.

There's a lot of mention of the rooftop patio in this article, and yet not one photo of it.

Why on earth does BlogTO keep allowing Lee Van de Moesdyk write these horrible reviews? They are always incredibly poorly written, ego-centric (spends more time writing about personal preferences and memories gone by than the actual club) and contain no real factual information.

Packed with women?

I see TWO females (literally) in those 7 photos. Looks like a sausage fest to me. *shrugs*

Lee Van de Moesdyk obviously doesn't like clubs or loud busy places with young people having fun and paying no attention to him at all....anymore, so why is he writing a review about a club? Unless the club has Beau or Duggans ontap, quiet areas to have conversations about independent films, intelligent/creative DJs and people his own age lurking around then he will not be very happy. It's obvious. Why would he even waste his time to attend this place and sulk all throughout it then write this shit review? BlogTO, please give Lee the indie places to review and someone who can (at least try) to appreciate a club review clubs.

It was my boyfriends 22 birthday, we decided to go to OhSo. I can honestly say our whole group of 15 had an amazing time. The music was live, staff was friendly and the bartenders were fast. A special thanks to the photographer Antino and promoter Alina for everything! See you guys again soon xo
