One of the oldest dance halls in Toronto, the Phoenix attracts an all-ages, all-races crowd that includes straights and gays. As a rock venue, it showcases such artists as Screaming Headless Torsos and Patti Smith. On the weekends, it gets the crowds dancing with a mixture of retro, Latin, alternative, and funk.

This place is in desperate need of repairs. At least repair the air conditioning so it’s not sweltering!

First time going to this venue to see a comedy show. The place has so much character, loved it. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The space is wide open, had a great time. Would definitely go back.

Went to see Men Without Hats at the Phoenix last night. The sound and lighting were excellent as were the sight lines. Drinks were easy to purchase. It was a good night.

Saw Big Wreck in February 2017. The show was excellent, and what made it so great was the excellent sound. We were in the VIP section upstairs which cut out much of the noise - the sound was simply amazing. Comfortable place to see a...More

Attended Drive by Truckers. Excellent atmosphere. Larger than it looks outside with plenty of bar space. Balcony seats excellent acoustics. Parking across street at city lot if you arrive early. Reasonable and would return there.

Small club with a balcony. Balcony has leather couches but the sound is terrible. Good sightlines though. Definitely not my favourite venue. Saw a show here a few years ago and I think I'd prefer to be downstairs but I'm 6 feet tall. My girlfriend...More

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

I've never been upstairs, so I don't know the answer. All the shows I've been to are general admission, so you go wherever.
