Toronto is a magical place: It’s got a vibrant mix of entertainment, history and culture. It’s also in a province that definitely knows how to have fun! The folks of Toronto are well known to enjoy parting – with neither rain nor snow stopping them from having a good time!

Whilst Torontonians may get their thrills by playing on online casinos – if you’re one of these, check out the Canadian casinos with Interac here – other Canadians go out and visit the hottest spots in town. We’re going to list some of the most popular nighttime jaunts in Toronto, starting with one of the best spots in town if you like to party.


Moody and brooding in the basement of Dundas & Dovercourt, Bambi’s is a great spot if you want to dance and boogie – the DJ is often playing rather groovy electronic music. You should get to Bambi’s early, as it often fills up very fast and you don’t want to be left out in the queue.

If you’re more into dancing than trying to pick up a hot date, then you should definitely check out Bambi’s – and be sure to check out Mr Flamingo, the bar that’s just upstairs.

Track & Field

Track & Field has been a talking point in Toronto for a while, but the premises have recently moved back to Old College street. Full of fun games to help you loosen up on a date, you’ll find Bocca lanes and shuffleboard as well as the Ontario favourite, Crokinole.

Top this off with a well-rounded selection of beers, on-tap cocktails which include alcohol-free ones, and an absolutely great atmosphere, and you’ve got a winner!


One of the latest bars that flawlessly combines the social aspect of drinking with fun activities, Lob combines the games of Bocce as well as mini golf into their bar. Located in the East End, patrons can play on one of the nine courses – all with Astro turf-covered uneven lanes that prove fun but challenging.

Lob is perfect if you’re after a fun evening out with a slight competitive edge and also birthday parties.

The Piston

If you’re more of a retro kid and prefer the great music of the past, The Piston will be your new favourite haunt. You’ve got DJs playing a range of music, from disco-themed parties and cheesy 90s dance all the way to the swinging 60s. And don’t worry about having a dance – the dance floor is huge!

You’ve got a bar that’s tucked away from the action if you need a break from hitting the dance floor and the easygoing attitude is more than welcoming.

Comedy Bar

If you want to hang your dancing shoes up and have a slightly more relaxing night out, Comedy Bar allows you to sit back, relax and enjoy some of the best up and coming local comedy talent.

There’s plenty on – more than 150 shows every single month spread out over the two stages – including improv groups and the popular comedy group The Sketchersons. The vibe is incredibly friendly and it’s the best place to watch local Toronto & Ontario talent at its finest.

Get Well

With a name like Get Well, you’re expecting something a bit out of the ordinary – and Get Well definitely serves that right up. You have a blend of different exotic craft ales, a pizzeria and vintage arcade games here.

You can easily settle down for the whole evening in this place, there’s that much to do and enjoy. Finely crafted beer, vintage arcade games and pizza. What’s not to love?

The Drake Hotel

Although not associated with the Toronto native hit rapper, The Drake Hotel is a great spot if you prefer a more boutique and luxurious evening. Acting as a local hub for many events – including multimedia art exhibits, DJs and even concerts, the venue has an underground club that caters for everything from slam poetry to chart-topping music acts.

Apart from the underground venue, you can find a high ends restaurant and bar, a rooftop bar and a nice lounge for a bit more of a relaxed evening.
