The last Toast

By Pandy - 27 November 2007 27

Well after several years, on 28 November 2007, salsa at Toast on Wednesday nights finally comes to an end. The last Tango was on Monday. Toast closes its doors this week.

So come along and celebrate this institution.

What’s Your opinion?

I’ve always wanted to open a jazz/ blues bar.

You know, with low ceilings, small tables with lamps on them, sultry jazz band in the corner, low lighting, big men in dark suits lurking in the shadows.

that sort of stuff…

Yay! Someone else used a phone! 🙂

Open a bar hey? Now there’s a good idea.

BattleKath 12:09 pm 05 Dec 07

well, the answering machine at Toast confirms that they have now closed. It thanks you for your patronidge and states that you should now go and party somewhere else, like Transit Bar or Bar32, or better yet, go open your own bar!

No idea man….

the phone is looking like a distinct option…

justbands 11:09 am 05 Dec 07

Anyone? Please don’t force me to have to use a phone!!

Just go to Hippo – Toast is toast afterall!

So….has it gone?

Frankly, the appeal of Toast was lost on me after they got rid of Lithium – apparently the owner was too stingy to get the paranoid Lithium organiser a bouncer. Chrome just doesn’t measure up, too much electronica for my tastes.

So anyone know where we metalheads and those wannabe goths can go for a good night out now that Toast, the last bastion after the Green Room, is gone?

oh, i love toast?!!

nope, toast is definately closing down this friday night. liquor board has been acting as a standover man for the waldorf to get toast closed and just gave a directive saying there is to be no amplified or electronic music after 10pm there. makes it hard to keep the place open.

it’s a fkn joke considering that the EPA have ruled many times that the place doesn’t make too much sound. liquor board took him to court one time previously using all epa measurements. this time they were more than happy to ignore them.

yay canberra bureaucrats

The carpet store of pubs?… same I will believe it when I see it.

Thumper 9:30 am 28 Nov 07

A bit like carpet and rug liquidation sales….

toriness 9:17 am 28 Nov 07

i second that johnboy. god i was told weeks ago while OS that it had had it’s last night and closed down – but in returning to work (and hence RA!) this week, i discover it’s still bloody open!

johnboy 9:13 am 28 Nov 07

Toast has been closing down for a long time now…

Ever since it opened really.

Believe it when I see it.
