Wrap Up The Weekends At The Apothecary


"The music and the vibe that was tangible last year was primarily our starting point for the Block Party Sundays," says DJ/Promoter Adam Addison. "Fortunately, a large majority of our regulars from last year have decided that this Sunday night ritual was something worth resurrecting for this summer. Thus, a very tight vibe already exists."

It's hard to miss where the party's at, with lights flashing on the rooftop patio and the reverberation of bass disturbing the neighbors living near Peter and Adelaide. The aroma of chicken souvlaki and Greek gyros from the readily accessible kitchen downstairs delight all the sweaty dancers after a night of exercise and expression.

"For me, Apothecary fills the void and space that's left in my soul from the pain of regular life. I let loose, I let go and I let the smile in me out!" The Dirt Bike Kid tells blogTO. "It also allows me to meet the people I want to accept in my life - happy, genuine people and people from all walks."

There's always a mass of people getting down on the dancefloor, yet the quaint bar stools and tables leave the conversation option open as well. It's a nice atmosphere to have a smoke, have a cheap drink, socialize with super friendly Scenesters and enjoy funky breakbeats fused with fresh underground house tunes. On any given night, one could expect to catch a set from The Dirt Bike Kid, Justin Tyce, Adam Addison, Plastic Motive, DJ Opel, Unabomber, the Phat Conductor and surprise guests.

Our Toronto breaks artists are really moving forward this year to play for an International audience, alongside Superstar DJs. Our hometown heroes The Beat Freakers will be featured on the main stage at this year's World Electronic Music Festival. Torontonians are truly lucky to have such fertile talent here right on their own block.

What more could one ask for on a Sunday night? With quality music, quality people, delicious food, cheap drink specials and fresh air, Block Party Sundays are a great way to wrap up a hectic weekend of partying.
