Toronto Nightlife

As our alternative arts magazines can attest, Toronto's nightlife scene is packed every night of the week. Queen West caters to the art crowd looking for indie music events and gallery openings, while the Annex takes good care of students looking to imbibe on a budget. For the style-conscious, the Entertainment District's high-end night clubs are sure to satisfy, and those looking for a fun, fabulous dance party should check out the scene in the Church and Wellesley neighbourhood. Late night food and drink options abound across the city: sports fans leaving the Rogers Centre or Maple Leaf Gardens will find plenty of pub food and beer on tap in the downtown core.
