The All Rounder: Saturdays at Korova

Korova Saturdays in Montreal are The All-Rounder

Zukunftsmusik, Italo, Soul, R&B, midnight rhythms, New Jack Swing, Hip hop, Miami Bass, Disco, proto-house, new wave, hip house, pop, Afro-beat, Tropicalia, Latin freestyle, Northern Soul, champagne pop, yacht rock.

Always present: proprietor and a true humanitarian, Nicolas Jules Robinson (Nick The Prick); behind-bar reader & bartender Naomi; gentlemen of the door, Stephen or Simon.

For those of you less-inclined to tear up the dancefloor, there are diversions - the Pabst Blue Ribbon vending machine, ol' tyme arcade games, a pool table, a neon light, a fooseball table, and the sparkling wit and genteel conversation of the staff.

Korova received Honourable Mentions in the Best Dance Club and Best Pick Up Club (!!!) category in the Montreal Mirror's Best of 2007 Poll. Nice.

"If that's not your cup of yerba mate, or you're wondering what happened to the rest of the Baile MTL crew, roll around the corner to Korova for a sophisticated evening of Italo, yacht rock, new jack swing and many other esoteric subgenres of pop music you hoped and prayed would be buried under the sands of time until the Internet came along and, well, they started to seem sorta cool again. That's at the AllRounder, with funny guys Jay Watts III and Mark Dufort."
