I've been on i government on many occasions to watch big DJs. I tried to take my friends there tonight to show them a good time. Not a huge DJ playing. It was $50 to get in. I've payed less than that to see tiesto. Ridiculous money. Even the bouncers were saying the that government has deteriorated. Don't bother. Just... More

This has to be one of the weirdest places I have ever been! I visited on a Saturday night, firstly the cover charge was excessive for what it was! As I entered the club I began to notice the dress code was not what you would expect with people finding it normal to wear vest tops on a night out... More

I went to a concert that hadn't exactly sold out, and could have looked really empty in lots of other venues. While the security and ticket services were really crazy (mostly because of management for the artist) the hall at guvernment ended up looking great and suited the audience and artist really well.

This place was awfulllll!! We paid 1000$ as a group for the cabana booth at skybar. First we get there and they wouldnt honour the comps, we had to argue with the bouncer to get free cover. Then, after getting a way too intense pat down (as a female) we have to wait in an extremely long lineup just to... More

Terrible security system. Tried to get in twice only to be mistaken for someone else who got kicked out? What kind of security system is run by face recognition? Try scanning tickets and then Decide whos in the wrong. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE GO SOMEWHERE ELSE

I visited the Guvernment center to see the Band Deftones. It was extremely sketchy upon entry. We were waiting in line, and there's no security outside to ensure the patrons ( entering the building are safe) Upon entry we were checked by security, to make sure we didn't have any type of contraband on us. There's also a coat check,... More

Bouncer hit a girl outside of club for no reason and did not even apologize. He was being reckless and that is not acceptable. The manager and police did not do anything about it, they just should there and talked nonsense. The other people who worked there opened up other peoples bag without their consent and started searching through it.... More

Culprit escaped. He does not plan to go back naturally, Toronto has risk areas and this is one you as a club goer or as a... More
