I'm not sure North actually likes his cast very much, which becomes slightly problematic when the fairly conventional genre ending comes along and you're asked to root for them. With the exception of Fat-armed wife, you never really get to know the people behind the screen names. And they don't seem the sort of people you want to admire anyway, with the possible exception of the Dancing Master, who we don't see enough of off-screen, so to speak.
A little more fleshing out of its characters would have turned a good book into an outstanding one. The decor is an odd mix of chandeliers, dungeon, and movie theatre with a giant flat-screen.
My first visit there were a few Reggae at first before it all became rap. There is very little variety of music at all.
Review: The Velvet Rooms by Sam North | Books | The Guardian
I went back a second time because I was told Saturday nights had a different DJ who had more of a variety of music, but apparently he is not guaranteed to be there. To be fair, they are new and willing to take your requests to management, but I would have to go back again to see if they actually follow up. I would definitely only have drinks at this place as the food doesn't make the cut.
Are bartender Vanessa was really great and the food was very unfortunate. We will come back for an after dinner cocktail. First time at the Kanata location - absolutely lacks the natural ambience of the original Stone Market location. They have made a decent attempt to decorate what is essentially a steel shell building but it always comes off as contrived in terms of having true character.
Staff were great! I was particularly hungry for some great blackened catfish So settled for a large app of Calamari to go with a great spicy Bloody Caesar : So disappointing was this version of calamari - cut in odd 3 inch lengths, battered but soggy texture - not even close to being crispy and tangy as should be. I'd wanted to give them a chance before publishing here on TA. First visit to the new location. Was a big fan of the one on York.
I was not disappointed.
The food was very good. My husband had the jumblya and I had the steak. Both were mouth watering and our waitress was fabulous. Definitely will return. The food was good, and creative Prices are moderate. Live Music I would recommend this please to a couple looking for a date night, or for a group of guys looking to watch a hockey game and eat finger foods Own or manage this property?
