If you have a chance to see a favorite band at this venue, you will not be let down! It's a fantastic old building with plenty of character and charm. There are a few small sections that are obstructed view so be mindful of your seat choice. Sound quality is outstanding. A perfect concert hall!

Despite living near Toronto for a long time, I had never made it to Massy Hall until April. I loved it. The hall has some old charm. There's a bar in the basement and the seats are comfortable considering they're old. I really had a good time (seeing a local comedian)) but I knew what to expect by coming downtown... More

Massey Hall was closed and wasn't able to go inside. Didn't expect to be able to go inside as there was not a show, but we did get to take pictures.

Massey Hall should give away their gallery tickets. After climbing 5 flights of stairs and recuperating from a nose bleed (j/k but seriously it was pretty far from the stage) We could not see the acts on the stage because of the support beams and back of other people heads. I felt duped pay $65 CAD for a show I... More

I saw my very first concert here a long time ago and it was amazing, The hall is so grande and I was in aww of all the detail. The floor seats are great from any seat as goes with the balcony seating. The only problem with the balcony seating is if you are tall(like me...5'8) you will be lacking... More

I've seen dozens of concerts and comedy shows at Massey Hall and I love the place. In fact, if there's a performer who is not a huge fave of mine but I do like and I'm uncertain if I want to see them---if the show is at MH it will sway my decision to attend. OMG I read a ton... More

I'm so in love with this venue. It has charm and character. Great autistics and feels very intimate. Very comfortable reclining seating and perfect size. Another wonderful concert with Canadian jazz misusing Diana Krall Every seat is a great seat here.

This is the place to see your favorite artist. Excellent acoustics no matter where you sit. There is not a lot of room at your seat but the whole experience makes up for that. This is one of our favorite venues.

I've seen probably 100 concerts in Toronto and never ended-up here until recently. This place is a fantastic venue for a smaller show as it is very intimate and steeped in history. Acoustics in the hall are great and friends of ours confirmed this in other locations throughout the hall. There's a nice little bar in the basement and is... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
