First and last show. Interesting experience for a Bachelorette party. For the additional $15/person it cost to sit right next to the stage, it wasn’t worth it. There were some balloons and party stuff, but not worth the extra money, would have rather just paid the $5 cover charge. Yes, they brought the Bride up on stage, but it wasn’t... More

I decided to go here for my bachelorette and by the end of it wish I hadn't. ( ended up going somewhere else around 12 am ) The place was fun at first but the customer service here was just terrible ( the servers and bouncers) The bathrooms were disgusting. I was out on the patio with the 20 ladies... More

We had a fun night. Yes the drags are very trashy and over the top and they are very limited in there performing abilities, but still so, they are good entertainment. They have a very sharp tongue and that's very funny to listen to, when they talk to the audience. They have a cover charge and the drinks were really... More

Went here for a bachelorette. It was great. The bride had a blast. We reserved a table next to the stage and it was a fantastic price to do so and well worth it. The table came set up with treats and party favours + a feather boa and crown for the bride to be! Loved the interaction with the... More

Never going again. Security kills the fun vibe. I was frisked without being informed or asked, we were threatened while standing in line by guy doing ID at the door, and while inside various security guards came across as overbearing, pushy, and power hungry. Seems like a strange match - fun, gay bar meets border patrol/customs airport security. Chill out... 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.
