Paaeez goes deadpool but not without one last bash

Posted by Jesse Ship / June 30, 2013

paaeezYour last chances to catch a fruity bowl of Double Apple shisha and swanky middle-eastern themed cocktails are dissipating like plumes of smoke as one of Little Italy's innovators in downtown hookah lounges closes down this Canada Day long weekend.

While shisha has become available at even the most street-side of Middle-eastern fast food joints such as Shi Shawarma on Yonge St, the opulent harem-like legacy will be continued on at Awtash, just a few blocks east.

Paaeez, a smallish 150 person capacity venue, will be going out with a bang, and a 909 handclap, on Monday night thanks to now mega-international tech-house duo Kenny Glasgow and Johnny White, better known these days as Art Department, known to have been given their start at the club.

Are you sad to see Paaeez go? Add your memories to the comment thread below.

Me and a group of friends went to Paaeez for a friend's birthday a while back. Can't really say the venue or ambience was memorable..... All the best in your future endevours!

Saw Art Department there last night. Killer set and awesome people, Kenny and Johnny rocked it. (And free) Perfect ending to Canada Day!

Good riddance, overpriced shisha and pseudo-persian dishes, this place had nothing good to offer.
