I really, really wish i could give zero, even negative stars. Me and my girlfriend went to Cabana to for the first time to see one of our favourite dj's of all time. It should have been one of the greatest days of our lives. Instead, while standing by a table (the entire club is surrounded by tables so this... More

The service here was appalling! We came in at opening time and they were very disorganized at the bar! Regardless of the fact that they open at 12 PM, I don't understand why staff aren't trained to prepare prior to when people arrive. The bar informed us that they could not give us any drinks such as mojito's or pina... More

Visited this outdoor bar on Polson Pier. My first interaction with the security convinced me that they were there purely to harass you. For the entrance fee (around $20), you get access to the bar area, but not the pool (you have to pay extra for this). The scantily clad stewardesses are aloof and unhelpful, and are largely there to... More

Went for a photo op, neat spot to get a photo with the city in the background. Otherwise not a whole lot worth a spending a lot of time for.

Just came back from there. Sound quality was awful, we couldn't see the screen from the car the resolution was so bad, and when we asked for a refund we were told "to bad." Save your money. You will ruin the movie, as you car hardly make out the images. Security guards also walk around checking people's tickets wish flashlights... More

The ambience is simply amazing and the set up of the Cabana is real nice... Vegas style... The food from the kitchen is also great...

There is a pool bar that is a must to visit at the Polson Pier. Amazing atmosphere, food and drinks. This place always has famous DJ's,and is popular among celebrities. During the week it's more relaxing, but on the weekends watch out. You feel like your at a Vegas Pool Party.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
