This perennial favorite is a modern-day speakeasy. The cramped space -- it seats only 100 -- is below street level, yet feels intimate rather than claustrophobic. Live jazz, whether Dixieland, New Orleans, or swing, belts out 6 nights a week. The epicenter for the swing dance craze in Toronto, this is still the place to watch glam hepcats groove.

This is a must visit club for any music fans. Watched The Digs do their stuff and they were great. Didn't eat here but drinks were reasonably priced and service was good.

We went for late Friday night cocktails, but am looking forward to going back for dinner... I like that there's different bands different nights in rotation. The cover was only $10.... a deal for live music! The place is underground and not one you'd likely...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
