The Skydragon type places are in effect exclusionary places that welcome a very small group into their midst.

Pretty far from the truth. In the time I've known the Skydragon I've gone to and played shows there, seen films, took part in open mic nights, went to Hamilton Light Rail meetings, bought records, had drinks with members of this message board, and seen people from just about every demographic and political persuation. They are pretty damn inclusive. Naturally, there is a certain demographic that will tend to patronize this type of establishment and identify with it more, because it appeals to their tastes. As someone who is very pro-development, someone who disagrees the the anti-gentrification views expressed in their publication, I still find it hard to fault the Skydragon.
