I've seen many artists here. Small and intimate with an old school feel this place still manages to bring world renowned artists to town. It is well located for post gig bar hopping too!!

A must stop for any up and coming performer. Your enjoyment here will probably depend on the band (or comedian) you see -- but as far as a venue: this place can't be beat. For the most part the acoustics and sight-lines are great. More...More

Massy Hall is a piece of history and a great place to catch a show or concert. Word of warning though, watch for obstructed view seating wgen you purchase. Older architecture allowed for columns to be put right in front of some seats.

Massey Hall is our favourite venue to see the Comidians that we love. It's a wonderful building thats just small enough so that no seat is a bad seat.

Massey Hall is old and from the outside seems dilapidated, and the inside is definitely old, the very intimate feeling of the Hall was a wonderful experience for the CHICAGO concert we attended.

I have seen over 15 concerts here. They always have great talent, and the sounds is amazing. It is a beautiful old building, with a ton of character and history.

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

Yes it does. But this weekend will be the last concerts for about 2 years as it goes through a big refurbishment.

I am pretty sure no outside food or drinks is allowed. They have their own bar but I believe like most places they still don't like anything from outside brought in.

We’re unsure if Massey Hall has a coat check/bag check. Best to contact the box office at Massey Hall and enquire.
