UNIUN Nightclub to close in 2019

INK Entertainment announced today that UNIUN Nightclub will be closing its doors as of January 2nd 2019. 

Launched in 2012, UNIUN was the first venue of its kind with LED-light installations, a top-of-the-line sound system and a chic industrial feel. Home to some of Toronto’s biggest parties, top artists such as Calvin Harris, Tiësto, A$AP Ferg, Steve Aoki, Fat Joe and Afrojack have performed inside the venue’s weekly Factory Fridays and UNIUN Saturdays events.

In celebration of the last six years, UNIUN will be hosting five massive closing parties: Bass artists Borgore and Getter on Wednesday, December 26th and Thursday, December 27th, as well as the final Factory Fridays and UNIUN Saturdays on December 28th and 29th. The last and closing party of the series will be on New Year’s Eve. Tickets can be purchased for these events via the UNIUN Nightclub website.

UNIUN’s exit may be bittersweet, but it is a sign of new and exciting things to come from INK Entertainment.

Weed is Legal: What that means for your nightlife experience

Weed Is Legal! What a time to be alive. Fast forward 20 years from now, kids are going to ask you “Whoa, what was it like when Cannabis wasn’t legal?” Weird right?!? With the official legalization of marijuana this past Wednesday, you probably have a few questions about consuming it during your nightlife or concert experiences. 

Can you bring cannabis into a nightclub? A concert venue? How much can you bring? What can you smoke it out of? 

Don’t worry, we got you – the INK Entertainment team has answers! Here are 5 easy guidelines for using cannabis at any INK venue:

  1. Only individuals 19 years or older can possess or consume cannabis – Same for alcohol, same for weed. Simple.
  2. The legal purchasing outlet is the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) – Don’t purchase off some random person outside.
  3. The legal allowable quantity is 30 grams of dried legal cannabis and its oil equivalent – No one is going to smoke 30 grams in one night – Only bring what you need.
  4. Cannabis can be brought inside venues but can only be smoked in the designated outdoor smoking areas – Bundle up! Winter is coming.
  5. Permitted items to smoke cannabis at a venue are joints, vapes and smaller plastic pipes – Leave your 10ft bong at home, bro.

TL;DR: Smoke it if you got it! Make sure you’re within these guidelines and you’ll have a dope night.
