SHAMELESS happens the last Friday of every month. NIGHT MOVES happens the first Saturday of every month. The stars have aligned and these two nights are happening on the same weekend.

On Friday May 31st come out for SHAMELESS where Skid Vicious & Matty will be spinning the best 90’s dance, early 2000’s hip hop bangers and all of those other party jams you love.

On Saturday June 1st, SHAMELESS’ Matty joins Pat Johnson at NIGHT MOVES to bring you a different side of the SHAMELESS approach to partying. NIGHT MOVES will be playing some shameless 80’s cheese & sleaze and 90’s indie that will keep you partying well into Sunday. We will have an amazing deal on Kichesippi pints!

Show up at NIGHT MOVES with your stamp from SHAMELESS and get in for free!

There is a change amongst us. Socks, sleeves, and wallets grow smaller. Eyes, cleavage, and libido grow larger. Your consumption rate stays in the middle as it always has but we won’t tell anyone. Friends, spring is here and we can think of no better way to celebrate summer dresses and short shorts than to help you put a little more junk into that metaphorical trunk. It is with the utmost stoked-ness that we deliver to you this message: TACOS!!

On May the 10th, for the first time in documented history Toronto taco tyrants La Carnita will be swinging their cilantro inside the confines of Babylon Nightclub for an evening of contemporary takes on Mexico’s most celebrated street foods. Much like GRILLZ N’ GLAM, La Carnita also sits heavy on the hip hop influence as they commission Djs to provide the mixtape soundtrack for the restaurant and much to the affection of rap lovers everywhere, they serve 40s of Old English. In a paper bag.


The perfect kick-off to the Ottawa Comic Con weekend: Geek and Burlesque are combining for a show that is certain to knock your socks into another galaxy!
