Like a phoenix rising from a nuclear waste site, Quo shut down, divided in half and has given way to two completely different venues: Myst and Retox. Myst occupies the front side of the building, keeping QuoÂ's infamous backlit bubble-tube display to ooh and aah newcomers to the space. The crowds glistening under the incandescent glow and the surrounding optical walls add to the jellyfish-like dream, but all reverie is shattered as soon as the DJ pumps Â“In Da ClubÂ” for all the stripey shirts and i-dressed-myself-in-the-dark sorority chicks. DonÂ't be discouraged, though. As with all new clubs, the hipper promoters will snatch Myst up in a jiffy, adding the obligatory star and A-list boost to the clientele... for a few months at least.
