Drove past Club XO last night, and signage is up. From the the website, it appears they are operational, for however long they last. Looks like an ordinary dance club, with the only unusual thing being go-go dancers in cages, which I don't recall seeing in Edmonton before. Any clubs have those in the 70s?

Bank Ultralounge had cage dancers a few years ago

I was talking to management at Underground and they've been having talks with the building management to take over that space when XO inevitably fails.

Among other "attractions," I seem to recall so did Goose Loonies.

^ Club Kaos...and I think you're correct re: cage dancers.

When XO inevitably fails, I wouldn't mind a club that is relatively douche-free and caters to older upscale crowd as per initial incarnations of Overtime and Dantes. It seems that these days Edmonton nightlife is now geared solely towards teeny boppers, hipsters, rednecks and gangsters. When I was in Cactus Club the other night I saw in the lounge a lot of faces I remember frequenting OT and Dantes.

Top_Dawg can't help but giggle thinking what if Underground fails first.

Doubtful. Underground has been doing very well since the road construction finished. When I was there last weekend it didn't appear Craft had any affect on the place - it was busy in there.
