Went to an Eric McCormack performance in this interesting old theatre up on the 4th,5th, 6th floors above the Elgin theatre. The ceilings are decorated with leaves to add to the name's ambience. The old elevators also add to the elegance.

The seating is a little uncomfortable which is common and to be expected for these older venues. Beautiful building and I love seeing shows here.

If you go to a show here it is lovely - not really worth the time as a stand alone thing to visit though.

We went to see Ross Petty's Peter Pan in Wonderland. The show was brilliant and the theatre is a beauty to behold. Love the old elevators to take you down to the washrooms.

I really loved the place and the actors. I saw Peter Pan and it was full of color, action and good jokes. The theatre is very nice and comfortable.

Originally had tickets to see Stewart Maclean as we do each December, but the show was cancelled. I surfed the net and found this show. It looked like a winner and boy did it exceed expectations. My wife, daughter, son-in-law and I had a fantastic time. Kudos to everyone

Always wanted to do a tour here so when the opportunity came to do a special ghost tour a couple of nights right before Halloween, we were there. We were not disappointed! Although this tour is a special Halloween one, we learned later that anybody can book a private ghost tour at any time which is why I'm writing about... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
