“Student pub seriously in need of a major reno”
Jul 29, 2017
Affectionately known as the Maddy, this is a popular Annex bar. The crowd, which includes many students from nearby U of T, fills every floor and terrace. The newest development is the billiard room, with 10 tables. Everyone in the friendly crowd...more

I think I was the only Torontonian who had never visited the Maddy, until yesterday. And the verdict.... a student pub that has become grungy over the years. An okay selection of beers, to be sure, but there is an odor hanging in the place...More

We have been to the Madison many times before, and never have I reviewed it, until now. I guess I have always been attracted to the summertime deck-party atmosphere, while the beer is the attraction, it has always been the food that disappoints. None more...More

Pretty nice place to drink, chat, dance and enjoy the night. Has a lost of different "attractions" like a dance floor with eletronic music, a calm rooftop to chat and drink, a busy but nice space with live music. Almost everybody there was students.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its

the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and
