Last night I checked out the new and improved After Dark night at Ozzy's. It's the weekly goth bar night in Winnipeg, held on Saturdays at the Osborne Village inn. While I know this isn't strictly neo-victorian, the night is very steampunk/Neo-Victorian friendly so it's worth a write up.
I've seen a few different incarnations of this night in my time, from Wellington's, to Die Machine, to Monty's and now Ozzy's. I have to say that I think this is my favorite incarnation so far. While I have fond memories of all of these nights, I think this is the best mix of location, music and ambience, so far.
The new DJs I thought picked an excellent mix of music, from old school to current. And they were taking requests, which I think made it very welcoming to everyone. :)
I also loved the nice touch of candles and roses on the tables. Very cool. I hope they keep it up.
I have to say I like the location of Osborne Village as it's close to home, and I love the area, there's lots of great stores and restaurants. It's also super easy to get a cab ride home as there's almost always a taxi waiting out front.
I know I'll be making this night a part of my regular social schedule.
