Went to Tommy's on a Wednesday because I heard there was local live music and it ended up being the right choice! We spent most of our night on the dance floor, the music was too funky not to! Apparently it was a Shambhala theme so we dressed up festival style and were surprised they had led hoop dancers and... More

Paid the cover charge for entry and received my stamp for re-entry. After leaving the club to answer a phone call from friends i was refused re-admission. Told to wait in line for over 20 minutes, once i explained that i had already 'paid in' i was accused of attempting to jump the line and told to go to the... More

I was kicked out of this place just cause I was cleaning my nose in the washroom and one of the bouncers assumed I was using drugs. Try to explain I wasn't doing anything and he pushed me out. A local guy saw when they pushed me out and he told me that lots of people had been trough the... More

I used to love dancing the night away with my BFF when we were younger and after many years I went back but this time with my husband for 80"s night. I loved that it still was a lot of fun all these years later. Great atmosphere and friendly staff!

This club is a dirty hole and the head door man is an aggressive idiot. The bathrooms are disgusting and the music was terrible. Not worth the cover charge. Wont be going there again..

Had a great time over the weekend at Tommy Africa's. The music was everything you hear today and some classic hits. Great crowd, everyone seemed to be having fun.

I am a non drinker enjoying a cover band playing songs. The crowd was enjoying the live show, I slipped in the crowd and I was mistaken for a heavily intoxicated patron and was tossed onto the street. I opposed the male doorman and was abused further. I have a broken finger and bleeding nose. They finally returned my lost... More

This bar would be great if it weren't for the abusive head doorman and rude (bussers?) I've been here a few times and i've never been so abused by male bar staff in my life. Last year my friends and i had to deal with a horrible busser (i think because he was carrying around bus bins) He was big,... More
