A great place for the college kids of New Haven and the few parents who have great kids who offer an opportunity to join them. As an aunt during Yale graduation, I was lucky enough to tag along to see what is so great about Toads. It definitely took me back to my college years of sloppy floors, loud music,... More

I've been coming here for over 20 years; it was the only place we could get into when I was a teenager (most shows are all-ages). The sound is (usually) pretty good, whether there are 15 people or 1000. This venue has been in business since the early 70's, and it shows, but it's all part of the 'atmosphere' in... More

This was the best bar on Saturday nights! Quinnipiac and Yale students come to Toads place for cheap drinks, great music, and college kids going wild. This is the place to go party!!!

From the Rolling Stones to Stevie Ray Vaughn, every band on the way up or a headliner now, Toads is a place where every band has played at sometime in their career. They now offer seating for some shows,which is very good. Do not expect clean bathrooms, but expect great sound, lights and a good band. From jazz to rock,... More

Came here with friends to enjoy some live music. Beer selection was decent. Drinks were a bit pricey but acceptable. Atmosphere was good. Would come again. Its located in the center of Yale University.

A noisy unattractive place patronized by townies and Yale students with no taste for anything but cheap booze and loud music.

This place is an institution and it has not changed very much since inception decades ago. It is an open space with limited seating where you can stand and hear bands playing everything from rock to jam to hip hop to even jazz on their way up, out, or firmly on top. The list of acts who have played here... More

Our Son the drummer has played at Toads with his previous band. I never frequented Toads as a teenager and went for the first time with my youngest son. Definately not for my generation but the kids enjoy the music and dancing. Beer is the only selection ( it is a college, now High School place to be). The sound... More

If you like live music Toads Place is the place you should visit. Lots of great local bands when I was there.

Great location, entertainment and the best of everything else close by. Lots of good memories! York Pizza is a legend and it's next door.
