The last Toast

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.

“…and smoke fat cubans down there “, now now there is no need to be racist/fatist about killing fat cubans… you’ll end up in the CT for that sort of language…

I remember the Terrace Bar from there – this would be a good coming of age venue for me – and I like the idea of a bourbon/jazz bar – would be good to get an exemption from smoking laws and smoke fat cubans down there while drinking martinis and watching live jazz

Their sexual orientation will be their own business Mr E. Mælinar has a tolerant view of employee’s personal matters, as long as they keep it their personal matters.

electric shadows could be the rockers and groovers answer to academy. Would love to see it converted into a bar.

Hetro only; or will gay and lesbian waiting staff be employed too? 😉

(Mr Evil: bringing you a new balanced view of the world. A world where everyone can live in harmony – except recumbant cyclists – they can p1ss off!)

the electric shadows idea is a great one, though given Toast closed because of complaints of noise from the Waldorf (or so i’ve heard), surely they would have the same problems?…

…or does the soundproofing there totally fix things?

If someone decides to open up a replacement for toast – can they please have beer on tap? I don’t mind paying $4.50, even more, for beer in the city, but not bottled, that’s just a rip-off.

Danman, Thumper and JustBands – you are all pirating my beatniks idea.

My Jazz bar comes with sexy waiting staff too.

Set up a bar in the old electric shadows site. You have a dual amphitheatre with sound proofing and a raked floor so punters at the back can still clearly see the bands

A separate service area exists in the foyer for those looking to chat as well as see one of two shows playing.

Plus the site is iconic which is fun for the marketing person.

Thumper – I have always wanted to open a Jazz bar in Canberra as well.
I always envisioned the old Asylum bar would be good but Cafe Macchiato have evicted previous tenants.

Maybe someone could make a go of teh old Impact Records/JB HiFi site ?

… and a hairy gay bloke gettin’ jiggy in a corner?

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 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!


Thumper Thumper 11:13 am 05 Dec 07

No idea man….

the phone is looking like a distinct option…

justbands 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!
