So I re-checked out Ambar on Saturday night. They play mainly house and breaks. On Sat night, it was all breaks which suited me just fine. By the time my friend and I meandered all the way from Northbridge to the heart of town where Ambar is, we had almost sobered up from the drinks at The Deen before. But the atmo inside proved to be worth the effort of our little trek.
The place was jumping as we walked in. Entry was $10 and cloak room was $3 – I had to use it almost right away because the place was hot. Maybe that’s a business ploy? Anyways, we proceeded to jump around with the other hipsters in the joint. The place has an underground feel to it and there were a lot of solitary clubbers just bopping away (artificially enhanced maybe? ;)), facing the DJ in the front. And the DJ was really into it as well, pumping his fist and smiling at the crowd and dancing to the music that he was spinning.
It was quite dark, adding to the underground rave feel – only the bar was brightly lit. Another business ploy perhaps? So I couldn’t really make out ppl’s faces (read: I couldn’t check out the chicks in the place, ‘cept for the ones that walked in front of me). No matter I was happy happy high high from the frenetic music and was actually sobering up. Sweating and drinking lotsa water as a result does help work the alcohol out of your system. Remember that kiddies!
Yeeeeahhh, it was a good night. Mental note: wear more comfortable shoes next time if I don’t want to wake up the next day with sore knees and ankles. Maybe I’m getting old? NEVER! 😛
