The Rex isn't the kind of overly slick bar that is popular with certain crowds, but what it lacks in aesthetic design it easily makes up for in its purpose and execution. The music (performed daily) takes The Rex from a beat up bar with character to one of the best places for music in the GTA and arguably Southern Ontario. From the big name performers who grace the stage to the student bands from local universities, The Rex is perpetually stocked with great talent.
Overall: musically solid, drinks are good and reasonably priced, food is tasty. Worth a visit for a night if you're a tourist, worth becoming a regular hangout if you're a local. Ask for Stephen.
