  • CUBE Nightclub

    By clubZone

    Though there's a $20 cover charge on Friday and drinks are pricey, CUBE is the best. With gorgeous views of downtown from their large patio, great music, tasty food, good company—you can't go wrong.

  • Kool Haus

    By clubZone

    Within walking distance of Union Station, this venue has great acoustics and is designed perfect enough for every concert goer to get a close up view of the stage regardless of where you stand.

  • Lee's Palace

    By clubZone

    With a solid, consistent sound and ease of moving closer to the stage, music lovers flock to Lee's quite often. The Dance Cave upstairs is great to mingle with others after hours of live music.

  • The Hoxton

    By clubZone

    Regarded as one of the best clubs for EDM, The Hoxton is full of chic 20-somethings. It's super laid back and lineups move pretty quickly. Though it gets crowded, the ambiance and mood make up for it.

  • El Mocambo Tavern

    By clubZone

    El Mocambo is one of city's oldest music venues, serving Toronto's music scene for over 100 years. Known for hosting The Rolling Stones in '77, El Mo is an essential destination for music lovers.

  • Wrongbar

    By clubZone

    Wrongbar is swanky and very intimate with dark interiors. Though it's got a rowdy atmosphere, the sound system is spot on and is one of the best spots in the city for indie and cutting edge music.

  • Lula Lounge

    By clubZone

    Take a trip around the world! While you enjoy delicious food and drinks, the lounge hosts live salsa, jazz, Brazilian and world music. Lula also once hosted Grammy darlings Norah Jones and Feist. 

  • Bovine Sex Club

    By clubZone

    Bovine has been a neighbourhood institution since the 90s, with rock, punk and metal bands. The club has been consistent with great music, drinks, atmosphere, and the right amount of grunge!
