The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.

One of the last surviving music venues in Toronto with a rich history. Terrific location for experiencing live music in a more intimate setting than large venues. Friendly staff passionate about music. I love coming to this place every time we are in town. Tasty dishes and amazing atmosphere. If your visiting Toronto you must at least pop in for a drink. Definitely a place to go and enjoy an evening.

This bar is a great place to get beers and listen to local bands. Definitely get there early if you want a place to sit or if you want to get a spot near the stage.

The Horseshoe is a great venue for concerts. Get there early as it is a popular place.
It is also best to take transit there

In Toronto for 4 nights stay from the North East of England - went here to see a band - friendly bar staff - band wad good but the tables were dirty and the seats old and ripped and the flooring smelt awful - even the stage looked as though it hadnt had a good clean in years - we are used to old and characterful bars where we live but dirty and smelly is not pleasant to sit and drink in

Good place to stop off for a drink and rest while on a recent walking trip in the Entertainment district before heading down to the Harbourside. We enjoyed sitting outside in the wee patio area watching folks go by enjoying our well deserved drinks.

Many Canadain bands have play in front of the checkerboard floor! More of a local place during the day but Max is cool.

From the outside it is very unassuming but then you enter a musical history museum. So many famous acts have played at the venue. There is a pool table, plenty of beer and spirits. You can order food from A&W which is passed through the wall. The staff are nice and friendly. A must see in Toronto.
