  • New Years Eve

A landmark hot spot on Queen St. West in downtown Toronto, the Rivoli is an ever evolving destination. The busy Restaurant serves eclectic global comfort food; at the intimate Side Bar, patrons cozy up to enjoy cocktails and great music; the Pool Hall upstairs offers vintage tables, full menu and comfy booths; the best people watching in town goes down on the Patio, while the Rivoli's Back room features some of the finest programming in the city from alternative live Music to Comedy and spoken-word events.

Serving up great food and art since 1982, the Rivoli is a popular restaurant and night club on Queen St. West in downtown Toronto, located in the the original Rivoli Theatre, home of 1920's vaudeville and burlesque. In the '80s, the Rivoli was synonymous with Toronto's black-garbed Queen West scene (Mike Myers's Saturday Night Live German club character Dieter is said to have been inspired by a Riv waiter). This reputation has changed as much as the club's clientele, but the Riv's atmosphere is still unique. Bare Naked Ladies, Molly Johnson, Cowboy Junkies, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Blue Rodeo, The Kids in the Hall, Ron Sexsmith, Jane Siberry, Kathleen Edwards, Sarah Harmer, Sean Cullen, Handsome Ned, Hawksley Workman, and so many more talented Canadian artists have started their careers and/or graced the stage - some like Feist even worked the bar at one point. International stars like Beck, Indigo Girls, Iggy Pop, Janeane Garofalo, Josh Ritter, Patty Smyth, Courtney Love, Tori Amos, Michelle Shocked, Robin Williams and others have also performed at the Riv. You just never know who will turn up, so please check our listings for upcoming events.
