Club Reports: Antigua, Bliss, Suite B, I-BAR

Before Icey came on, there was time for some club hopping around downtown. Antigua (above left) was unusually uncrowded. Was able to get in free via an XL106.7 promotion (register in advance on their website) but then found out that the "free drinks" promotion they've been doing there forever was not in effect. Top 40 mashups, $6 cover. Bliss Ultra Lounge (above right) was pretty spartan too early on but this is a club that can be dead at midnight and then packed a half hour later! Great Dance & House music. Admission often free before midnight and then $5.
Suite B Lounge (above left) is also a downtown venue for Techno & House but it's all non-vocal and you're not likely to recognize anything. Great music though and strong drinks. Admission free. And then there's Independent Bar (above right) which was packed packed during my visit, featuring 80's Old Wave. Admission free until 11pm and then $5. Strong drinks, great place!
