While cleaning your apartment this past week you stumbled upon your college yearbook, a literal blast from the past at your fingertips. Ah, the glory days of youth...the toga parties, the Halloween galas and, your personal favorite, the yearly reggae sunsplash weekend. Well don't get stuck in nostalgia, mon, head on down to Exedus II and rediscover your inner Rasta!
Dub and dancehall reign supreme at this Exedus, so don't expect the dreadlocked DJ to take kindly to your Snow request, but classics by Peter Tosh, Desmond Dekker and, of course, The Wailers will all be honored with a sly smile. Still, the likes of contemporaries such as Shabba Ranks or Kelly Rankin are more often than not found on the intimate stage or blasting from the bombastic PA system, and the youngish crowd dominates the close-quarters dance floor. The inescapable chill vibe permeates one and all, ensuring this is on Exedus you won't be in a hurry to leave.
Smoking is permitted within the dark confines of the bar, where Indian hemp tobacco mingles with other more exotic aromas. Red Stripe is, fittingly, the beer of choice, although the adventurous are encouraged to try either the Jamaican-imported Dragon Stout (containing hints of honey extract) or the house white rum punch (laced with sugar cane). After all, you only live once mon!
