    We went to the improv brunch. It was only about an hour long, but the performers were very good and they took suggestions and volunteers from the audience. We shared a breakfast wrap, which was tasty and the mimosas were good as well.

    The Rex Hotel Jazz and Blues Bar are located at the heart of Toronto Downtown. This place defines a 'cozy place.' The music started at 8.30 PM, as they mentioned on the ticket. We bought a ticket for Roberto Occhipinti Quartet. We preferred to sit in the bar section, which was very influential in comparing the price and quality. I can suggest buying a ticket from the bar section if you like. You can see the main scene, don't worry. To have the best personal music listening experience, I suggest going with a maximum of 2 people. You can even feel meditating on the music while you go alone and sip your drink. Rex Jazz and Blues Bar are highly recommended for a relaxing night experience. Prices are fair; you must wait a while to deliver your order. That is the only negative side—overall good experience.

    10 of us visited in November of 2021 (just before everything shut down again due to Covid) to celebrate my birthday. We were quickly greeted at the door but I took away a point as one had to pay cash for the cover charge which I was not told when I made the reservations and most of my friends only carry plastic which was irritating as many had to run to a bank machine. It is a cramped space but I knew this upon making the reservations and the food choice were quite limiting especially when I had one individual in the group who is gluten intolerant and another who is vegan but both did have at least once choice. Although limited choices, I found the food was delicious (I had the burger sliders and the mushroom toast) and the atmosphere is electric. The band was outstanding and everyone was up dancing again on the cramped dance floor. It was a crowded space but as we had a table we were just fine. We all had a fantastic night and I would definitely go back again and same as last time ensure I reserved a table as otherwise it would just be too crowded for me with barely standing room. I took off one point simply due to the cash only cover charge (when everything else inside you could pay with plastic and no mention of this) and the limited menu but other than that would be 5 stars.

    This bar is a great place to get beers and listen to local bands. Definitely get there early if you want a place to sit or if you want to get a spot near the stage.

    With witty pirates and a stunning view of the Toronto skyline at sunset, this unforgettable journey is full of laughs.
    Once you step onto the pirate ship, you're in for a real treat. The crew, a talented bunch of improv actors, are outstanding. They keep the energy high and the laughter going when you're sailing across Lake Ontario.

    The pirate ship itself is impressive. They've paid attention to every detail, making you feel like you're in a real pirate adventure. The crew's outfits, the ship's design, and the whole atmosphere make the experience feel authentic and exciting. It's an adventure that lets everyone get involved and have a great time. It's a treasure (get it?) of an adventure!

    When we arrived late on a Friday we were entertained by a couple of drag queens lip syncing - one at a time. The first was very fishy and the second one really looked like a man with bad make up.

    Then the best ass contest started. Audience members were encouraged to come up on stage and moon the audience; a prize being awarded to the best ass.

    The vibe was super-friendly and peaceful yet exuberant.

    Woody's is located on a small section of Church street where the LGBTQ community gathers to party - and drag is everywhere. There's another drag bar across the street but it's much more of a dive bar.

    If for no other reason, go - just to witness this piece of drag herstory.

    Fabulous atmosphere - feels like you are in a latino club back in the 50's with dinner and dancing. Waiting for Ricky Ricardo to show up...... The food was extremely good. (Jerk chicken was yummy but pretty spicy, calamari were perfect, crab cake was delicious and desserts were a hit at our table. 8 people all enjoyed their meal. Salsa dance lesson was great. DJ music was fun; the 12 pc band was FANTASTIC! Dance floor very crowded. Would be nicer to have a bit of room to dance. All in all, a very fun, entertaining evening. Waiters Julio and Lulu were both terrific! Mostly filled with under 40 year olds, but any age fit in.

    We LOVED our experience at Yuk Yuks. The host and all four comedians (with Kyle Hickey as the headliner) were great.

    The only issue we had is that the seats were very uncomfortable. That being said we look forward to our next visit.

    I was visiting Toronto on a business trip this week and had to swing into one of my favourites. Staff was hospitable some more friendlier then others, service was great. You can tell that the employees all cared about the room and their regulars. Even though the front room is tiny and had a live band the sound was on point, meaning I could still have a drink and socialize without screaming. The back room is cozy and offers a break from the live music and classic pinball and old school movies on the televisions. Their heated upstairs patio Tiki bar seems like a fun summer hangout spot, it was a bit chilly when we visited so we didn’t stay on the deck very long. All in all fantastic dive bar! Will return!

    Stand up comedy can be hit or miss. The show I saw was a hit! It was one hilarious comedian after another. The acts could have been on much bigger comedy circuits. When I called to make reservations the lady who took my reservations was super nice and even remembered I called when I came in. I got an order of wings which were decent. Not the nicest looking place inside, very dated, but I guess that's what comedy clubs look like.

    Good vibe at CH. we paid to go through the back which was $15 each and saw 3 bands. Real
    Mix of stuff but really enjoyed it and very good energy in the room.

    Cash only bar so take some $$ with you but an ATM through the front. Craft beers and simple drinks. No wine glasses!

    Would definitely go back for another night and area is vibrant with loads of bars/restaurants and takeaways.
